Extracts from my upcoming book. And a special treat

Hi everyone,
I’m amping up the promotion for my new poetry and prose book CROSSROADS (Winds of love).
We are so close to the release date this Monday(17/05/2021).

I closed my eyes and randomly chose different pages to pull out the extracts you’ll read in this post.
I could do this because I think I gave every single verse, poem, story and reflection great care.

You can hear it as it prowls
Treachery, its shadow
And so you hide in fear
As the night whispers of heartache
And love hunts you like prey
Persisting like only love can!…

~Trapped by love~ Pg. 74

At the end of this post is a special incentive to purchase this book so please read on.

The sun of day and moon of night alight
Their greed for one another, left naked to see
Stars twinkle as moist skin and lips unite
Writhing and bound in passions meant to be…

~Romance and Nature~ Pg. 131

How I wish to hold you
Draw you close and bind us in rhythm
Feast on your beauty
Look deep into your eyes
And fill those depths with what I feel…

~Secret desire~ Pg. 30

The book has a number of short stories written in verse and these next two extracts are from two such stories.

The wisps of conspiring clouds
Snuff out the shy flicker of weary stars
And I catch a glint of something in her eyes
An eerie mischief veiled in flirtation…

~Fatal Attraction(A short story)~ Pg. 69

…They were lost in fields of seduction
Trapped in the vale of passion
Resistance was vain
Their attraction too deep…

~Inflamed(A short story)~ Pg. 62

A sparse number of the poems are untitled but in sync with the mood in that particular section of the book, like this tanka and haiku;

Lone thirsting daisy
Beauty coaxing the heavens
Till nourishment falls
Gray clouds glow white with relief
The sun shines on you and me

Pg. 156

Stormy grey nimbus
How you struggle with emotion
Withholding your love

Pg. 144

You can take advantage of the pre-order discount price

As an extra treat(or so I hope), I’ll be randomly picking five people from the first fifteen reviews I get on Amazon.
These five people will get free copies of my upcoming novel that’ll be released early next year.
I’m already working with TSL publications.
And I think you’ll enjoy the world I’ll bring to life.
I cannot reveal the title yet but I will as we get closer.

I would give more if I could; but this might just be a worthwhile gift.

Thanks alot for reading, I hope you can get yourself a copy.

Stay safe everyone, Stay loving.
