Tapestries of Faith: Black SGLBT Stories of Triumph, Family, Love & Healing

The Missing Symphony

by Nivedita Patnaik

The missing symphony is a collection of poems depicting life, human relations and reflections of soul in man at the crossroads in 21st century. Here the poet explores the hidden but universal fountains of human heart craving, languishing and striving hard at breathing the truth beyond diabolical and masked countenance of his pseudo-self. Beyond doubt, every soul in isolation will find the poems to be a mirror of every individual self.

Between the Tracks

“I was seduced by the lavishness…”

“Another sexy collection from Carol Bellhouse.”

“This is great stuff: Snowmelt washing winter’s dust through icy ravines, you tangle my hair in your fist and kiss me full on the mouth.”

The Roast Beef Apocalypse

by Michael Prihoda

This is Michael Prihoda’s first collection of poems (spanning 2011-2013). Covering such themes as death, grief, depression, and suicide, the work is constantly tinged with humanity. Written by a mind trying to make sense of suffering and sorrow, the collection also features thoughtful poems about literature, life’s banalities, and relationships. Ranging from theme to theme the writing always contains Prihoda’s natural style, both heartily emotional and sympathetic. He is fearless in his plumbing of the mind’s recesses.


by Suzanne Gunter McClendon

This book of poetry is a compilation of works done mostly over the last twenty years. From the depths of depression and grief, to the joy brought only by the love of my Heavenly Father, it covers a wide range of emotions.

cardboard asteroids

by Adam Betley

“cardboard asteroids” is a book of modern poetry. The author takes what he loves about any poet, style or genre he’s come across, mixes it up and spits it onto the computer screen (because no, he doesn’t write on paper). This book shows that poems don’t have to carry an important message or change lives. They may just as well portray a certain feeling or simply capture that one exact moment or emotion – and nothing else. And whether it was eating fries or maybe wondering what would he write about was he a squid, it’s all poetry. At least to the author. That is me. I am the author. Hi. You look mighty fine today, if you don’t mind me saying.
