Well, kind of.

Haven’t gotten your hands on a copy of my book, THE EMPEROR’S SOFA, yet? For shame! I kid, I kid. I kid because I love. Here’s your chance to read some of the poems included in my debut poetry collection FOR FREE.

What’s the catch, buddy, you ask? No catch. Many of my poems originally appeared online. So, I've decided to compile the original pieces into one handy list for you to peruse at your own leisure.

Here, some of the poems are in slightly different forms from what you find in the final version of THE EMPEROR'S SOFA and they are also in no particular order.

Thanks to the wonders of the internet, consider this somewhat of a sneak peek to whet your appetite for the real deal.

Also, if you haven't already, please join THE EMPEROR'S SOFA Facebook Page and Goodreads Page.

Thanx and happy reading!
