James Finley (Fin), a born leader, tries to help a man wrongly imprisoned. Anger at injustice threatens to devour him in the case and in his unusual personal life. He battles with finding his place in the early multiculturalism of Australia during the 1980s, when many want to use him for their own purposes. Fin finds he has to personally change to succeed in relationships and learns that the road to reconciliation is not as straightforward as many tell him it is, but he believes he can discover success and happiness - on his own terms - and has to learn to play by the rules in the pursuit of justice.

IN THE BRIAR
By Cynthia Morrison – contributor to BETRAYAL, HAPPY and EMPOWERMENT.
ISBN: 978-1326959395

 

Desert creatures of the night, visionaries, fallen angels and rebellious titans. How much must one immortal woman face in order to share an existence alongside her reclusive husband? Is her life really a blessing or simply a curse forevermore? Dr. Nautica Crosse defines the true meaning of love within her world of desperation and her crusade against the grim reaper. An entity she would only submit to while clenching his heart. Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies - Aristotle Is the afterlife filled by half souls? A quest of one woman's love as she faces the horrors that surround the figure of her visual passion. Is she any different from the evil forces that she contends with? She herself creates a monster but without malice. A monster for which she has joined as the two become one. Click on the below link for further details about Cynthia's book, and to buy a copy.

MACHIAVELLI'S BACKYARD
By David Lohrey contributor to BETRAYAL
ISBN: 978-0999079607
ASIN: B075FGVBK7

 

Some of these poems are prosaic, some disturbing, some out-and-out hilarious: I like the dark sardonic tone and exquisite vernacular of gallows humor that popped right off the page. David Lohrey commands an arresting, hard won deadpan syntax entirely his own. He can be biting, toothy, sardonic and often ambiguous. I love the casual acerbic tone. He makes me think of “Dover Beach” and Jonathan Swift. He is a deadly serious (and skilled) poet, who happens also to be a very funny man. Charles Bukowski comes to mind. It is a poetry of outrage, a poetry of sadness, and a poetry of laughter. Reading “Machiavelli’s Backyard” is like being invited to a garden party in a Walmart parking lot.

MYSLNE MIRAZE (Polish)
By Eliza Segiet - contributor to EMPOWERMENT
ISBN: 978-8364193033

 

Wiersze przedstawione w tym tomie, świadczą o tym, że język odpowiednio ukształtowany może być mostem rozciągającym się nad przepaścią pomiędzy ,,ja" i ,,światem". Przepaść pozostaje, lecz ów most umożliwia nam odszukanie przestrzeni pomiędzy tymi dwoma skrajnymi biegunami naszego istnienia. Pomimo tego, że nasz niewypowiadalny świat wewnętrzny, stale uwikłany jest w siatkę słów i pojęć, poezja stać się może łącznikiem uprawniającym tę paradoksalną strukturę.
