About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Poetry is like music: it has dozens of forms and personalities. Some like one kind, others another. There's probably something for everyone, somewhere.

This book has some variations: metaphors, which are basically poems that talk about one thing when they are really talking about something else (See "Tiger.") Then there is a section on humor, more verse than poetry in the elitist sense. Then narratives, which are poems that tell stories. Then sections on nature and death, two of the most common subjects in poetry. Then a section of romance, written for my husband. (After sixty years of marriage, he's earned that much.) Last are the "petit fours", simple and brief, defying logical classification, but worth the space.

Most of the book is probably overall closer to "golden oldies" in music than jazz or rap.

Deftly constructed at 116 pages, Metaphors and Petit Fours is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Poetry - General category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Metaphors and Petit Fours meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $7.95.

Additionally, Metaphors and Petit Fours can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
