Description : This book is a compilation of my best and favored short stories, poems, and random bouts of creativity from my personal collection of chronicles beginning in 2000 to most recent (2011). I've always had a knack for writing, a true passion. The thought of total strangers from all walks of life entering a bookstore and reaching for a book I've created is simply a never ending dream. Why should you pick this book up? Thumb through it? Read it? Perhaps buy it? I haven't the proper response to these questions but am grateful and thankful for the opportunity to live my dream. To my fans, friends and family, I thank you for your interest (it is my spark) and all of your support.
Description : This first poetry book by new author Jordan Freels gives us a provocative glimpse into her life from her perspective. Pieces of Me is a page turner of Ms. Freels's life, loves and losses. The reader is able to observe through her prose as she navigates, sometimes painfully from teen to young woman. At times emotionally disturbing and raw in it's delivery as in "It Makes Me Sick," written to her mother after an argument and equally touching and sad as in "Empty," where she longs for love. In "Fatherless Man" she unleashes her strongest rage and brokenness to a man who walked out of her life when she was an infant. We can recognize a part of our youth in her despair of lost love and celebrate with her as she delights in her achievements. Several short stories separate from her poetry are also included in her book. The characters are all flawed and fictional, and perhaps one day Ms. Freels will expand on their stories.
Description : Really, it was not a success as a story. Far too skeletal, too unfinished. He held the notion then that he should leave the reader totally alone with a single incident, an incident free of narrative adornment or psychological probing. He trusted in the poignancy of the incident to carry the load of the basic poetry in life’s common experiences. The work is very short. I trust that I will not weary my reader if I reproduce it:
