Smashwords book reviews by Edward Petty

  • Poems On The Cheap on Aug. 04, 2013

    I greatly enjoyed this book. Poetry's a personal art form. This poetry affected me with its sincerity. I especially felt affected by Altered Design. It spoke to me most poignantly due to my own life's circumstances.
