“The Legend of Misty Mountains” by Shiva Sethuraman
The Legend of Misty Mountains:
The first of an exciting new series about a magical land and the people who inhabit them.
Misty Mountains is a magical abode nestled among the clouds and inhabited by The Strange People. It had been established by the Lightning Strikers and the Magicians who have lived in peaceful coexistence for the last ten years. The Strikers possess the incredible power to create lightning, thunder and rain. The Strikers wield their power without restraint and have no desire to help the Earthly People living below.
The Magicians possess sublime skills and knowledge. They visualize a world where the Misty Mountaineers and Earthly People live in close contact with each other, benefitting from each other’s knowledge.
But with the Lightning Strikers showing no inclination of contacting the Earthly People, things are at an impasse at Misty Mountains.
The Magicians suspect that the source of the Strikers’ immense power lies in a hidden gemstone. The Magicians decide to acquire the gemstone and use its powers to help the Earthly People living below. Do they succeed? What happens if they fail?
The readers start on a magical journey of Misty Mountains which involves the Strikers, Magicians, dwarves, the Wise Ones, an imposing tower, a hidden gemstone.
The viewers are faced with the question: if the Magicians don’t succeed then who will in their quest?
The Legend of Misty Mountains is a tale of a clash between two conflicting beliefs. Of good vs evil. Of courage, vision, compassion and hope on one side and hatred, deceit, hostility and treachery on the other…
“21st Century Battle Hymns” by SJ Leveaux
The monsters of today do not sleep in woods, they do not reside in caves or in darkness, but behind screens, high upon capital and deep, deep in the chaos.
21st Century Battle Hymns is a collection of forty-eight modern poems that live and breathe on their own. These are reflections of our world; questions and reminiscences. They are hymns in praise of what has already left the cliff-edge of time or else in fear of the monsters that crawl up its face.
Time, desire, nostalgia, nature, beauty, society, people and the mind are the elemental threads that bind these verses. A great collection for people who feel beaten, out of place or at war with the modern world.
“When you mix romance, passion, perversity, darkness and trepidation into one, Leveaux is what you get. His roots are in linguistics, which is evident from his poems, the lines of which take your tongue and mind on an adventure.”

“Tactics of Lost Minds: Concept Poetry Book” by Tye M.T.
| Facebook |
There is a time for us all when it seems like life is against us. We all experience the messed up nonsense that passes for our existence, as we try to reach the goals we set for ourselves or the success and happiness we desire.
So what do we do? We develop ways around the difficulties and strategies to make sure we get what we want, despite all the diversions and obstacles that are placed in our way, designed to hamper our progress.
This book of poetry, Tactics of The Mind by Tye M.T. is the perfect antidote for an imperfect world that can at times seem to be set against us and is indifferent to our needs or desires.
It is modern heavy lifting for the reader and the intellect…and not so much the power diet for the emotionally overweight and provides a daily dose of dealing with that messed up life thing we know as life.
These poems are written from a young mind, aimed at other young minds who are similarly searching for answers to increasingly complex questions about things that should really be quite simple.

“They Call Me “Black Michael”: My Story of Growing Up in the Racist South” by Dennis Sholesman
This is my account of growing up in the south, and facing racism so granular that my given name was not even good enough as an identifier. Some of the thinking by the folks back then has shaped the actions of racists people now. That’s why innocent joggers get chased down and executed. Why men feel they can stalk and kill a young black kid whether they have authority or not. This must stop, however to stop it we must understand it.
