‘Poetica Erotica’ Is a Passion Filled Collection of Poetry

Poetry book gives a multi-faceted look on love, lust and loneliness
ISHPEMING, MI — When it comes to being a poet there is no attribute more important than passion. It is passion that will propel you to write, day in and day out. It is passion that will keep you immersed in the poetic medium through the years. It is passion that sets a fire in your heart for the written word every day. Author Tim Cross knows this better than anyone. It is also this passion that has inspired him to write a collection of poetry in Poetica Erotica.

In Poetica Erotica, the author uses his experiences with women through the years. Some he met face to face, and some he met online. And through his many years of contact with women he has always wondered one thing, He wondered about their motives, did loneliness instigate their actions, did they do it just for fun or were they actually looking for another partner or even a discreet lover. And as a poet he was entranced and curious of these motives. Which is why he has set out on creating a collection of poetry based on his experiences with the women in his life.

Poetica Erotica is a masterfully written collection of poems that shows the many aspects of love. Is it really love a man feels or is it just mere infatuation? How do relationships shape people? This enthralling collection of poetry delves deep into the human psyche with the hopes of answering these questions.

"Fiction or Prophecy" Shows Dangers of Terrorist Attack

Fiction or Prophecy
Author Angelo Thomas Crapanzano delves into the dangers of terrorism and its effects on civilized society

ISHPEMING, MI — The world is getting more dangerous every day. With the rise of terrorist attacks through the years, the general public is now in fear of the threat that these terrorist group pose to the free world. To what depths will they stoop to achieve their goals? Author Angelo Thomas Crapanzano addresses these dangers in his immersive new book Fiction or Prophecy.

The idea for Fiction or Prophecy was born through a casual discussion with a neighbor in the author’s family room. The discussion was based on the news that one of the terrorists claimed that they were secretly developing a backpack nuclear bomb and planned on bombing ten of America’s largest city.

Officials wrote it off as an idle threat, and that they could never get ten nuclear backpacks into the country. The neighbor questioned how they could say that, when a million Mexicans cross America’s borders daily, with backpacks of drugs, weapons, and personal items.

Having been in the scientific field and seeing how electronic technology had exploded during his life time, the author had no doubt that it was a matter of time and that terrorist would not hesitate to use it. He wondered what would happen if the terrorist was telling the truth. This enticed the author to write a novel on this threat. Is this novel purely fiction or is it a prediction of what was to come?

Author Andy B. Nakagawa Releases 'Living in Victory'

Living in Victory
Enlightening book shows readers the life changing power of prayer and faith

ISHPEMING, MI — Author Andy B. Nakagawa has always believed that prayer is one of the most potent ways to uplift yourself from the darkness of the world. It is also one of the most powerful weapons you can have in the ever constant war against sin. This is because the devil is constantly bombarding humanity with words full of deceit and hatred. And if left unchecked, humanity would lose sight of its ultimate goal. God’s love.

Which is why the author has endeavored to write Living in Victory. This is a prayer and faith companion book based on Andy B. Nakagawa’s previous book The Road to Redemption (And Blessings). It contains prayers based on four subjects: spiritual warfare, blessings and identity, guidance and direction, and deliverance. It has a new essay on renewing the mind and an article about the author’s personal identity in Christ.

The book contains six chapters and each one tackles concepts on faith and the power of prayer. This book is an illuminating tome that shows the life changing power of prayer and faith. The author’s greatest wish is that the book will help the spiritual growth of his readers and show them how to finally live in victory.
