Camellia in Snow

Rose Bruno Bailey, born on the Winter Solstice, blossomed into a poet deeply rooted in nature and the human experience. Camellia in Snow, the first anthology of her work, contains poems that reflect her love of nature, alongside intriguing poems with suggestions of mysticism, or a longing for transcendence. Rose also displays occasional flashes of a darker side to her sunny disposition, letting us explore with her the areas that poets sometimes shun, yet which grant all of us admittance to a shared humanity - scared, regretful, emotionally fragile. Rose uses her life experience to share, as only poets can, the deeply personal in a way that makes it truly universal and accessible to us all, crafted with beautiful, emotive, accessible language, and profound, stunning realism.

Logan Thee Forsaken

A modern masterpiece of romantic suspense. Touch the past and hold it for the future. Today, wrapped in the complacent armor of approaching middle age, the infinitesimal pricks of day by day brush one lightly and soon forgotten, but then how a careless word would linger, becoming a fiery stigma.
