In My Shoes: My Poetic Journey from Abuse to Victory By Lyn Crain
eBook (ePub): $4.99
In the 1950s, the phrase “confessional poetry” gained popularity initially with Robert Lowell, Sylvia Plath, and Anne Sexton. This form of the written word gave artists a way to discuss... More > private, painful events in their own lives without actually sharing every minute detail with the world. In My Shoes poetically portrays Lyn Crain’s journey through cancer, as well as physical and emotional abuse. Her poetry is written from the heart and can be titillating or terrifying in a world that is often more black than white. Crain felt the need to use her voice to share her story and, in turn, open the discussion for women suffering under similar circumstances. Crain is grateful that domestic violence is not a taboo subject anymore, however very few poets have addressed the subject in any length. Silence enables, but by raising voices, it is possible to also raise awareness that domestic violence will no longer be accepted as the norm.< Less
Twelve O'clock Feet By Neil Raffan
eBook (ePub): $6.29
‘Would you like your bottom wiped by a total stranger.’ Life has given Brian Robinson a savage sense of self-mockery. A turbulent and opinionated testament left to two of his nephews,... More > Pockets and Razor. Assuring them of his love, he explains why there comes a time to move on from the terrestrial life that no longer affords him physical intimacy.

Back By Steve Hussy
Paperback: $9.53

“I had learnt that teachers are almost exclusively smug, phony left-wing, backstabbing, pseudo-intellectual, frequently stupid, hypocritical cunts. But I better explain all that. “And... More > why you need to run, fucking run, from them.” --- After quitting teaching in his late twenties, Steve Hussy became an editor of Murder Slim Press. He then became penniless due to be being screwed over by one of his co-editors. Forced back into teaching, he follows a series of rules to ensure that he keeps his job... whilst constantly watching and writing about the strange and often repellent hundred-plus teachers that he works with. For Hussy, his students are rarely the downside of the job... The true pitfall is the charmless, corporate face of modern education. --- Hussy's sparse, venomous writing - first in STEPS and then in numerous literary magazines - has drawn comparisons to the darkest and most honest confessional writers.< Less

More > of shorts was written to be published? At times the level of whispered confessional seems all too raw, as if but for a close friend’s eyes - though the emotion expressed is loud and clear and universal. ‘So you are the other spastic, said the voice behind the door.’ Self-mockery pulls the author back from the edge-of-life in the homosexual closet as well as from the trauma and embarrassment of unrequited love. Readers may sense that certain of these tales are an autobiographical version of Twelve O’clock Feet. Talking socks and feisty answer-machines add humour whilst far-flung locations … the Okavango, Frankfurt, Aberdeenshire and Hong Kong … mix travelogue with acerbic wit and family crisis. On occasion autobiography (Poisonous toe) and fiction (Shut up) do criss-cross (Bread) for greater effect.< Less

Fire In My Bones: A Walk Through Jeremiah By Douglas Humphries
Paperback: $12.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
“But if I say, ‘I will not mention him or speak anymore in his name,’ his word is in my heart like a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in. Indeed, I cannot.”... More > - J. 20:9 Heinrich Ewald called Jeremiah, “the most human prophet.” To Douglas Humphries, he’s always been Jerry, “the prophet who talked back.” Unexpectedly, blessedly standing in opposition to everything he thought it took to be one of the faithful. Jeremiah’s story is one of rejection and destruction, tragic and yet profoundly hopeful. A true picture of what it costs to do the hard, right thing. What it means to follow God. What it means to even know God. And it found Douglas exactly when he needed it to. Part biblical analysis, part memoir, part confessional. As much a reaction to scripture as it is an investigation of it. This book brings new insight into an old, but all too familiar story. A new way to consider an old, but dear prophet.< Less
