#bookreview Bangers. Erin Taylor @erinisaway @GhostCityPress 


Bodies
, and the gaps between them, and us seems to be the overriding theme in this micro-chapbook published by Ghost City press. I was overawed by the mid way point of the poems in Bangers. The opening poem writes us what a body is, ‘a body is merely bones and flesh a body is merely lines a body is merely heavy breathing,’ And continuing in that vein to sharing that body in a relationship, and what we can gain, and lose, from that experience. A superb addition to the Ghost City press micro-chapbook 2017 summer series, I loved the thoughts Bangers provoked

And the good news? You can download this book for free from Ghost City Press. All donations go directly to the writer. Here’s the link. Happy reading!

More gorgeous book photos! 

Poetry

  • Title:Taking Back the Underground. Steven Storrie
  • Publisher: Weasel  Press
  • Release Date: April sixth 2017
  • Average Rating: 4.5/5 🌟

  • Amazon 
  • Blurb:


Taking Back the Underground is a no bullshit poetry collection. Storrie fills his pages with grit and filth only a poet could master. The collection is full of beat observations and holds no punches.




The first full length collection of poetry by Storrie. I can’t get enough of his poetry!  His poetry doesn’t suffer fools, in his book he takes on The Kardashians, Trump, and Princess Diana. He is also capable of writing tender, beautiful words on small moments too.

Young Adult

  • Title: Cheesus was Here. J. C. Davis
  • Publisher: Sky Pony press
  • Release Date: April eleventh 2017
  • Average Rating: 4.6/5 🌟

Sixteen-year-old Delaney Delgado knows miracles aren’t real—if they were, her kid sister wouldn’t be dead. So when the image of baby Jesus appears on a Babybel cheese wheel, she’s not buying the idea that God’s got a dairy obsession. Soon, religious signs begin turning up all over Del’s hometown, tiny Clemency, Texas. Overnight, news vans fill the streets and religious pilgrims start searching for God in the discount aisle of the grocery store.

Hell-bent on proving the so-called miracles are fake, Del convinces her best friend, Gabe, to help her find the truth. While Gabe’s willing to play detective, as a preacher’s son he’s more interested in finding evidence that supports the miracles. But when the whole town becomes caught up in religious fervor and even the late-night talk show hosts have stopped laughing and started to believe, finding the truth might cause more trouble than Del can handle. This novel is neither pro nor anti-religion, and will appeal to fans of contemporary YA novels that explore deep themes with an element of humor. The voice and characters are funny, strong, and full of heart. This is a book for anyone who loved Saved!

An excellent idea for a book, the image of Baby Jesus appears on a Babybel Cheese Wheel, and then after this discovery his image appears on other objects, which drives the tiny town of Clemency, in Texas, into a fever of activity, but are these images miracles, or a hoax? Delaney is a great protagonist, who in this book stands up for what she believes in, and that’s proving these images are fakes. I believe this is a book that belongs on the bookshelf with Malorie Blackman, Judy Blume, Jacqueline Wilson, etc. 

Contemporary Fiction

  • Title: The Beauty of the Fall. Rich Marcello
  • Publisher: Langdon Street press
  • Release Date: October twenty-fifth 2016

A TECHNOLOGY EXECUTIVE CHARTS A HIGH-RISK, UNCONVENTIONAL PATH WHILE GRIEVING THE LOSS OF HIS SON
Dan Underlight, a divorced, workaholic technology executive, suffers lingering grief over the death of his ten-year-old son, Zack. When Dan’s longtime friend and boss fires Dan from RadioRadio, the company that he helped create, he crashes and isolates himself.

Willow, a poet and domestic violence survivor, helps Dan regain his footing. With her support, Dan ventures on a pilgrimage of sorts, visiting Fortune 500 companies to flesh out a software start-up idea. He then recruits three former RadioRadio colleagues and starts Conversationworks, a company he believes will be at the vanguard of social change.

Guided by Dan’s leadership, Conversationworks enjoys some early successes, but its existence is soon threatened on multiple fronts. Will Dan survive the ensuing corporate battles and realize the potential of his company? Or will he be defeated by his enemies and consumed by his grief?

Rich Marcello now also has a book of poetry available for pre-order, with a beautiful cover.

Happy Weekend!

Happy weekend, friends! I hope you have a fun one, whether your weekend is going to be busy, or a quiet one. 

My two chapbooks the Blank Page, and Nectar can be downloaded for FREE from Payhip.com. 

Fully immerse yourself in the writers life – greeting the blank page, the doubts, censorship, challenges, bad feedback, and further down the line, what will my legacy be?

The free-verse, and experimental, poetry on living, loving, and writing asks other questions, such as will my writing ever pay the bills? What if the muse buggers off? And what would Beat writer Jack Kerouac have made of #poetsofinstagram? 

Katie Lewington is offering you a personal experience, with vulnerability and heart on the page.

The Blank Page hopes to inspire, and entertain.

Poetry is my nectar. I have been writing it for six years, and enjoy reading it just as much (although I didn’t for my English GCSE!) Reading poetry I enjoy writers who play with form, and I like social commentary in poetry, as much as I do the haiku, the found poem, and the silly rhyme.

Bruce Kilarski is one of the humorist poets to have influenced me, and I love the rhymes in one of my favorite books, Alice in Wonderland.

Nectar marrs both social commentary, and humour, in the five poems in this micro-chapbook that were first published in Jotters United Zine and Selcouth Station.

The Blank Page

My second new book The Blank Page.

My tablet broke Friday and my only internet options are using the public library, or Wi-Fi spots on my Kindle in restaurants. I have anxiety, so I can very easily become socially isolated if I don’t go out often, and the online poetry community keeps me sane! I also love book blogging, which I won’t be able to do without my tablet! It might take me a while to save for some new technology, so any donations will really help me.
