A Plum Hollow Coven Story: Awakening

by Anna Blauveldt

To say it isn't the best of times for the unconventional Harmony Drake would be an understatement. Losing her mother and her job at the onset of the pandemic, she later learns plans are afoot to destroy the beloved forest beside her trailer park home to make room for a luxury condo complex. Complicating things even more is the unruly magic swirling in and around her. With her life turned upside down, can she ever make it right again? Harmony's surprising journey takes her one mystical step after the other into the supernatural world of her ancestor, Mother Barnes, the Witch of Plum Hollow.

Awakening is a light-hearted story of self-discovery. It is about finding strength in family ties and nurturing the powers inside to achieve one's goals.


 

"Awakening is a fast-paced and fun fantasy that had me engaged from the start. The author writes in a highly accessible style that brings her characters to life on the page."

— Don Trowden, author of the Normal People series

Sun & Moon cover 4 - w foreword credit.jpg

Sun & Moon

by Michel Weatherall

Returning to print for the first time in years.

“Sun & Moon explores emotional quandaries through an enigmatic lens. The sobriety of madness, the fretting away of the poet's sanity.

“It is fear and hope given voice in the same breath.”

—'Seph Sayers

“The greeting card morality of the unthinking is precisely why books like Sun & Moon are cesarean born into a turbulent world. The poet is tasked with provoking emotional intelligence by awakening the sleepy conscience of a community that often confuses the demands of security with the desires of liberty.”

—Mark Antony Rossi, author of Strength to be Human podcast and book

“This relatable work is a tumultuous river that runs through the hard times and quiet times that touch every life. It carries you from beginning to end and leaves you with the final line ‘Left in the wake of your absence, now winter’s descended.’ The curtain call to a wonderful work.

“A must read for poets and those poetic at heart. I look forward to reading more of Michel’s intriguing work.”

—Jen Pretty, author. 2019 Faces of Ottawa Awards Favourite Author Finalist

“Raw emotion... and powerful words weaved together in beautiful poetic form.”

—Michelle Young, author of Salt & Light and Without Fear,

Woven throughout this entire literary piece are the stories of characters forgotten from the original novella, The Symbiot. Written as three separate pieces, following 6 story lines set in 3 different ages, Necropolis is intricate storytelling!

 

The first piece tells the story of the fall and demise of the ancient Egyptian man-god, Pharaoh Nyarlathotep. 

 

The second brings us back to the characters we left in the previous book, ten years later. The promises hinted at in TheHunt: Symbiosys, do not disappoint and come to fruition in Necropolis, with full blown Lovecraftian-mythos monsters!

 

"It's Modern Tech versus forgotten aeons-old evil.”

 

It has been a decade since The Hunt and the Gibbons' children are humanity's last hope! The sequel to The Symbiot spans three millennia – from Pharaoh Nyarlathotep's genesis and demise, to the discovery of the derelict Japanese destroyer, The Yamayuki, to the world shattering rising of R'lyeh!

 

The world is at its end!

R'lyeh has risen!

Cthulhu's high priest has awoken!

Iä! Iä! Cthulhu Fhtagn!

Measure of a Wo/Man

by Jagjeet Sharma

What is the measure of a woman? She is immeasurable. She is strong. She is a double force to reckon with. Jagjeet Sharma’s “journalistic poetry” continues in this new poetry collection, Measure of a Wo/man.

 

Poems in this collection are about the Wo/man. The Hindu God Shiva’s ardhanishvara, a concept that she is both half man and half woman. Lord Shiva, one of the Hindu gods is referred to as the ultimate man, but one form of Shiva is also a fully developed woman. The masculine and the feminine are equally divided within yourself, within oneself. It is about the struggles and challenges a Wo/man faces day in and day out in any part of the world.

 

“Jagjeet’s poems use simple language, but are extremely profound and relatable”

-The North Grenville Times, May 2, 2018

 

“...even when the poems are relatively simple, moves one to reflect on contemporary society, power structures, the surviving fragments of our own traditions and on ourselves”

- Review by Christopher Adam

Under A Maple Tree - Jagjeet Sharma.jpg

Under a Maple Tree

by jagjeet Sharma

 

Under a Maple Tree is a mixed and random collection of poetry, a byproduct of the Covid-19 pandemic; sometimes its cure worse than the disease, causing devastation and destruction, leaving our lives in the wake of division and a pendulum of emotions.

 

Once a peaceful country, post-Covid Canada has found itself in a conundrum of incongruities and divisions, its very unity and stability in question; socially, politically, and economically.

 

A random collection of social and political discourse put in poetic form - a reflection of our times - the news stories of 2022 – Covid-19 - the truckers convoy – the neglect and abuse of our elders in our long term care facilities - the horrific findings of our residential schools. This collection is a continuation of the author's journey and journalistic poetry.

 

And as we exit this pandemic as a society, as we begin collecting our wits, as the shell shock abates and healing can slowly commence, Under a Maple Tree is the beginning of this journey, a time when we can begin to digest and reflect upon these past tumultuous years.

Ebook Cover - Final - The Leavetaking - Oct 16.jpg

The Leavetaking

by Anna Blauveldt

A successful author. Her lifelong friends. A luxurious birthday weekend at a posh resort. The perfect setting to make memories they can cherish forever. At least, that was the plan.

 

But all is not right with Molly, a terminally ill woman in a less-than-fulfilling marriage who celebrates her 65th birthday with three old college classmates. During their getaway, closely held secrets in their interwoven backstories – an affair, an accidental death, an addicted daughter, and, of course, Molly's illness – are finally revealed, with consequences for their friendships. And in the end, long after she returns to the reality of daily life, Molly must come to terms with her own mortality and the world she will leave in her wake.

"The Leavetaking" is about betrayal and forgiveness, courage and compassion. Most of all, it is about forging one's own path to serenity and helping others to find theirs.

10 - Poisonous Whispers.jpg

Poisonous Whispers

by Jana Begovic

 

 

"Don't you ever forget about me...", he whispers during their secret encounters. Like a curse, these simple words now haunt Leandra, a reputable psychiatrist, who finds herself in emotional chaos after the sudden breakup of her illicit affair. Unable to heal on her own and tormented by dreams in which supernatural forces create havoc with her fate, she desperately turns to David, a colleague psychiatrist, asking him to take her through past-life regression therapy. She hopes that this unorthodox and somewhat suspect technique will explain her profound connection to the lover who has abandoned her so abruptly.

The sessions take Leandra through 17th and 19th century Ireland, Italy and England, where love, loss and betrayal are the leitmotifs in an ambiance of co-mingled fantasy and reality. In her hypnotic state, Leandra recounts a saga of intoxicating love, dizzying passion, flaming lust and profound heartbreak. Despite the painful answers she finds under hypnosis, Leandra still cannot let go of the hope to reunite with her lover. Ultimately, the shattering revelations from her past-life incarnations, along with the turmoil over her ruined marriage, become the stepping stones of her introspective path to healing, self-discovery and an appreciation of true love.

With its seamlessly interwoven sub-plots, Poisonous Whispers lures the reader from one continent to another, from past to present. The affair at the center of the story is an anatomy of the heart in which the heroine's sorrow-laced journey reflects the universal themes of love and loss.

8 - Missing the Exit.jpg

Missing the Exit

by Michael Adubado

 

 

Michael Adubato, being a man of many talents and experiences, perceives the world through a compassionate and undeceived lens. Writing in vers libre, the common language of his work justifies more than a single reading. Abubato's free verse poems are mostly lighter and observatory in tone, but can range from harsh objectivity to darker humour. Having travelled extensively, a notebook his companion, he brings these experiences to his literary endeavours. Born and raised in New Jersey, this American poet now resides in Belgium.

 

"In these poems, Adubato takes his readers on a journey around neighborhoods and across continents. Over meals with friends made throughout his travels, and through the sights and sounds he encounters as he explores destinations brand new and familiar, these poems stir all of our senses and encourage us to embark on our own excursions at home or abroad. This eclectic collection turns our negative response to "Missing the Exit" into one of the highlights of the trip."


--Lynne McEniry, poet and author of some other wet landscape

 

"MICHAEL ADUBATO's poems are those of the intelligent, alert poet who experiences and perceives the world around him with a compassionate and undeceived sensibility. As a former soldier, engaged in enabling the armed forces of different countries to communicate with each other in a common language his poems can range from harsh observation, to military black humour. However, most of the poems are lighter in tone than these two quotations with John Ashbery, the Beats, Charles Bukowski, Robert Frost, Frank O'Hara and Patti Smith registering stylistically in well-written free verse which bears reading more than once. They have been culled from Adubato's notebook kept during his travels and sometimes there are lines that remain in the mind through their disturbing originality."


-- James Sytherland-Smith, poet and author of The River and the Black Cat

Down Darkened Corridors

by Michel Weatherall

 

"This collection bears testimony to how valiantly Weatherall embarks on an inner journey, mining the darkness in his shadow world and transmuting it into the aesthetic of verse.

 

"He paints images that are a tangle of anger, guilt, helplessness, wounded childhood to the point of instilling both a sense of discomfort in the reader and of admiration for the courage to come face to face anew with the disturbing past.

 

"Feels like a jolt to the reader, like a reminder that life is a play that cannot escape from the falling of the final curtain. His verse "..spare the child, spoil the rod" evokes an image of child abuse that sends shivers down one's spine

 

"Weatherall's dark poetry is like the edge of a knife with which he pries under his own and the reader's comfort zone. Exposing the ominous hum of his own darkness, Weatherall reminds us that only by facing our shadows and shining a light of introspection on them can we expunge them. Chiseling this shadow world into verses, he gives us hope that with lyrical gentleness we can all find self-forgiveness."

 

-- Jana Begovic, author of Poisonous Whispers, poet and senior editor at Ariel Chart Literary Journal

"... the philosophical personality emerges from the poet and starkly points out the boring restrictions inherent in social conformity. We learn the "freedom" promoted in congruency is a facsimile destined to morph into a stifling existence for a creative individual."

 

-- Mark Antony Rossi,

Ariel Chart International Journal's Editor-in-Chief

6 - Love & Catastrophe Poetre - w Award.jpg

Winner of the Faces of Ottawa Book of the Year, 2022 Award.

This collection of local Ottawa poets address the loves and losses during the catastrophies of 2020.

"There is so much of love in this collection, so much to love in the time of a pandemic, to abuse the phrase. In a period where we are bereft of touch and intimacy, love in all its forms encourages us to connect and, better yet, to hope. And, as much as love hurts in "Touch," love always has the power to heal a very broken world.

"Love changes and changes us with it, as evidenced in this marvellous collection of poems that encompass so much in so little space."

Julie Beun

"This collection captures an outpouring of emotion from a year of catastrophe and loss, interwoven through the themes of wildfire, pandemic and hurricane. The poems are vignettes of sorrow, destruction, loneliness and separation, but also with glimmers of hope. For lovers of poignant poetry."

Rachel B. Brown, CEO
North Grenville Public Library

9 - Little Dragon.jpg

Little Dragon

by Jana Begovic

 

 

A delightful, fun and engaging story about a dragon whose misadventures are amusing and instructive. When Andro the little dragon catches a cold, his explosive sneezing wreaks havoc among his friends and family. His misadventures teach him not only a lesson about good manners, but also show him how he can turn the powerful blast from his nose into a useful weapon.

 

“A fun little tale with a lesson that your child will love. Cute and sure to make you smile.”

 

—Andrea B. Lamoureux, Author

 

“This is an adorable tale about a little dragon named Andro. The delightful story teaches children that If something doesn’t seem to be going right or appears to be a problem, you can change your perspective to see the brighter side. A valuable lesson for everyone!”

 

-- Beverly Knauer, an award-winning author

 

“Charming and poignant, Little Dragon gathers together community and family to remind children and adults alike—what appears a flaw just might become our superpower. Jana hits all the heart notes. If I have grandkids, this is on the top of my stack.”

 

—CK Page, Author

7 - Sadness of the Siren.jpg

Sadness of the Siren

by Samantha Underhill

 

 

The poetry of Samantha Underhill is haunting, darkly beautiful, and melancholic.

 

Follow her to the deep on an epic journey of honesty and vulnerability, where feelings and self-perceptions are artistically expressed in classic verse.

 

Naked truths of inward aching, reflect the muddled mixing of fear and anger within the role she has placed upon herself.

 

Hidden beneath the veneer of Greek mythology, lie the shapes and forms of loneliness, regret, ostracization, and longing desire for love and acceptance.

 

Painted images of injustice, misperceptions, and judgment in the Siren, she reveals a dichotic world, perched on the cusp betwixt isolation and inclusion.

 

Samantha Underhill's lyrical dark verses in Sadness of the Siren are a cautionary tale, plea, and warning, all in one breath.

"One man's musical passion leads on a temporal hunt through a Lovecraftian world on a collision course with extinction! Reminiscent with Guy de Maupassant's The Horla"
'Seph Sayers, Blogger & Book Reviewer


"Devoted music enthusiast and accomplished pianist, Lorne S. Gibbons, realizes the grim truth regarding a long lost and forbidden music as an evil entity is unleashed which threatens all existing life of Earth. As a crescendo of unknowable forces prepare to wipe out anyone in their way, Lorne and Veronica begin a race against complete annihilation. With little reinforcements, Lorne and Veronica have to fight against the god-aspiring creature to avoid further bloodshed. However, when godly power collides with humanity, the results are devastating."
Joshua Hubley

"In the Symbiot, Weatherall has created a spine chilling tale reminiscent of the style of Stephen King"

Book 2 of The Symbiot-Trilogy.

"Woven throughout this entire literary piece are the stories of characters forgotten from the original novella, The Symbiot. Written as three separate pieces, following 6 story lines set in 3 different ages, Necropolis is intricate storytelling!

 

"The first piece tells the story of the fall and demise of the ancient Egyptian man-god, Pharaoh Nyarlathotep.

"It's Modern Tech versus forgotten aeons-old evil, with a reminiscent flavouring similar to Grandma Death's fictitious book (Donnie Darko, 2001)!

 

"It has been a decade since The Hunt and the Gibbons' children are humanity's last hope!

 

"The Symbiot Series spans three millennia - from Pharaoh Nyarlathotep's genesis and demise, to the discovery of the derelict Japanese Destroyer, the Yamayuki, to the world shattering rising of R'lyeh!

A Dark Corner of My Soul - Michel Weatherall.jpg

Foreword by Lydia Schoch (blogger & Goodreads Author)

 

“A Dark Corner of my Soul”...was refreshing to read and well-written... a raw and honest compilation of poetry purely written from his heart. Dare I say, very Leonard Cohen-ish!" 

Brigitte Lord, author of We Live in the Shadows

     "An amazing collection of literary prose which Weatherall has kept locked in a desk drawer for two decades is now a short collection of dark and deeply disturbing  poems.

     "The reader is transported into the mind of someone suffering and you can see the images of his words as if they were your own.

     "As a sufferer myself, I was amazed at just how much he was able to write and convey how mental illness makes a sufferer feel. Those images which are so difficult to explain that haunt the head flow off the page, raw and exposed for all to see.

I couldn't possibly choose a favourite in the collection as they were all so powerful and beautifully written. Michel  has a true talent and after reading I felt he was extremely brave to share such wonderful, if dark work."
