Great news! I just re-released my poetry collection, A Modern Apocrypha, in paperback! There was always the Kindle version, which I published in spring 2013. But with the holidays approaching, I felt it was time to let a print version be on the market.
A Modern Apocrypha is a congregation of poems I wrote years ago as well as more recent pieces. I pondered what to do with them all, knowing the poetry market has never been thriving in modern times. So I felt self-publishing was best.
A Modern Apocrypha covers a lot of ground thematically-speaking, and it’s informally split into “parts” that focus on various themes, such as sin, temptation, addiction (not just to substances but also to wealth and fame), self-image, superficiality, complacency, and, of course, the end of the world. While A Modern Apocrypha isn’t a religious book, its more cataclysmic moments were inspired by the bizarre imagery found in the Biblical book of Revelations.
A Modern Apocrypha is small in size but big on food for thought. So if you’re hunting for a good stocking stuffer but want to give something that has more to chew on than a candy cane, then check out A Modern Apocrypha!
