Our Otherworld by Juleigh Howard-Hobson

New release from The Red Salon:

Our Otherworld by Juleigh Howard-Hobson (my new “best favorite ever” written by a lady, and what an honor it was to receive her manuscript). This is the kind of poetry that will be read by its readers again and again and again. There is much to learn, to enjoy, and to deeply appreciate as it reminds the reader to look down and around more—not just up to the sky—for what evokes a sense of wonder; to find it in a forest, at sea, in dead things transforming, and in the collective imagination of European folk. Our Otherworld proffers “Somethings” for the whole family and is available for purchase via Amazon.

July Releases: Middle Island Press and The Red Salon

This has been a busy past few months!

Under the Middle Island Press imprint, we’ve published our first novella: Petals and Nails by Loni Hoots, who also has four books of poetry and the first book of her Little Bird series of stories for children in print.

We’re close to releasing Robert Epstein’s Haiku Days of Remembrance: In Honor of My Father (link forthcoming) as well as Checkout Time is Soon: More Death-Awareness Haiku. He has published several books through Middle Island Press – both his own poetry as well as anthologies which he compiled and edited.

From The Red Salon, we just released Spear of Stars by Jason O’Toole (this is his first collection of poetry, though he’s a seasoned songwriter); and most recently, The Colors of My Soul by myself, Christina Finlayson Taylor.

I do so love keeping busy designing books and am always glad to add new authors and titles to our ever-growing list. Click on the links above to purchase and brows the interiors at Amazon.

Near-Life Experience: Poems by Christina Finlayson Taylor

I’m glad to say that the latest book release through The Red Salon is my own! For years I didn’t write, and then, suddenly, the flow returned and has been turning on and off like a faucet: a few weeks of prolific writing and a few weeks of no writing at all. I’m glad to be writing again!

Near-Life Experience developed over the recent cold months. I planned on slowly working toward a collection about triple in bulk, but as I scanned what I had written of recent, I realized that there was a certain feel, and I decided to do a “gray” collection of my life this past autumn and winter and will plan to pen a “yellow” collection as the sun warms and colors the earth and my emotions.

This collection, compared to my first one, is considerably more “mature” as I’ve been experiencing critical inner development. It also contains more abstract concepts as we turn inward in the cold months. I hope that the few who appreciate my writing will enjoy this new collection. It may not be full of color and laughter, but it’s me.

(Near-Life Experience is available at Amazon, but of course friends can contact me for a signed copy.)
