A blend of quirky poetic tales containing real life issues that poke well beneath the surface of humanity. Dark humour. Poetic. Bordering on the absurd. Themes of control, paranoia, death, spiritualism, power, ignorance, poverty are portrayed through rich characterisation and strong imagery. A disturbing but sensuous read inspired by people watching at an airport.
Smashwords Style Guide was most helpful in creating my first ebook. It assisted me every inch of the way with formatting, style, hints and tips on editing, and creating an ebook cover. I couldn't have done it without the sound knowledge of the author. Very well written, spaced out and just an absolute gem! Thanks.
Hey, Echo. Loved reading your poems. There is a lovely rhythm throughout. I particularly enjoyed Artsy Fartsy - it made me laugh, and Black Whole. Keep up with the good work. Love your humour in your biography etc. Thank you for sharing.
Just read your free ebook. Thank you for this. I really enjoyed this. It is very well written and flows really nicely. The humor throughout is excellent. I particulary like the bit where she talks to him about having manners while eating food - not to play with it! This humour makes the story for me. Great twist at the end - won't spoil it by saying here. Well done!
