New Chapbook is Out!

Hello Dear Readers!

My second chapbook, From the Depths of Darkness, is finally out.

Considering how small a book it is, it’s been both exciting and trying to put together. I’m emotionally exhausted. But I won’t burden you with details. All I can say, it’s a very personal fulfillment.

Earlier readers of this Chap have alluded to the boat as a metaphor for this work. See if you agree!

The Chapbook

This ambiguous and paint-like (with a worn quality) book cover is by Martha @Ayala Art. And just to be clear, she did both cover art and design. Check out her blog for the wonderful artworks she creates.

Now, people often ask how can they support me. The answer: get yourself a copy, read and if you enjoyed the book, spread the word by leaving a short/long review on Amazon, Goodreads or a simple share on social media and your blog, if you have one.

This is one of the best ways to support any writer.

Have a great weekend, folks!

special note: The print version is still at the printers. I’ll update when available for sale via PayPal.
