The Light Keepers (ShadowLight Saga Book 0)

From the #1 Bestselling Norse Fantasy Author, comes The Light Keepers, a short story prequel to the ShadowLight Saga

Isolated because of what she is--because of the power she holds inside--Astrid longs for contact with another human being. Her well-intentioned mother locks her away from society in order to protect her from an evil that seeks to use Astrid's abilities for his own means. But the resulting loneliness drives Astrid deeper into the shadowwalk--a power she is forbidden to use, a magic that lands her directly into the arms of the Shadow.

This short prequel to the ShadowLight Saga offers a revealing glimpse into the history of the beautiful and mysterious warrior maiden known as Swan, called Astrid in this prequel. It takes place a few moons before Bonded begins and is a self-contained novelette of approximately 10,000 words.

PRAISE FOR THE LIGHT KEEPERS

You've never seen dark versus light like this before! Matthews expertly twists good and bad until the lines are blurred and your heart is racing.

Astrid (Swan) is such an amazing heroine - she's so tough, yet emotionally rich. Since Astrid can't speak, I loved how Matthews weaved in her internal thoughts throughout the action - it gave me an extra layer of insight to her cool personality. I loved her!

It's sexy, intriguing and fast paced...The Light Keepers hurls you right into the action...leaving you begging for more...

Travelling light - poetry

A collection of 54 poems - long and short, written in various styles. The majority are free verse.

I have three other published poetry books:

'Kaleidoscope' - a collection of 119 poems, written from the age of 16 until 2010;

'Life's Rhythms' - a book of 316 haiku, composed in the traditional pattern of three lines with 5-7-5 syllables, written from 2011-12; and

'Mind-spinning Rainbows' - a collection of 150 poems, written since 2012.

Apart from poetry, I have written 12 novels - some for children and some for adults.

Sample poem...

We live in the echoes

We step inside mirrors

Lemon petals pave the way

I sleep in stages, sleep sublime

Walking pages never read again

I see the signs yet still forget

Imagining faces of the past

A rush of bliss splits the breeze

Where the peacemaker wanders

The crevices of the closed mind

He offers echoes of your stare

We live in the echoes

Patterns drawn upon a wall

Plunging ripples capture all

The raw beauty of the real

Where the Fool laughs his last

Is a time we'll never see

For he plays so beautifully

Daring to step beyond himself

Embracing all there is to see

With such wide open arms.

Poems by Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth (Including Their Thoughts On Poetry Principles and Secrets): Collections of Poetry which marked ... An Ode; Lyrical Ballads and other Poems

Musaicum Books presents to you this carefully created collection of "Poems by Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth (Including Their Thoughts On Poetry Principles and Secrets)". This ebook has been designed and formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Lyrical Ballads, two collections of poems by William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge are generally considered to have marked the beginning of the English Romantic movement in literature. The immediate effect on critics was modest, but they became and remain a landmark, changing the course of English literature and poetry. Most of the poems in the 1798 edition were written by Wordsworth, with Coleridge contributing only five poems to the collection, including one of his most famous works, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner". A second edition was published in 1800, in which Wordsworth included additional poems and a preface detailing the pair's avowed poetical principles.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772 - 1834) was an English poet, literary critic and philosopher who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets. He wrote the poems The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan, as well as the major prose work Biographia Literaria.

William Wordsworth (1770 -1850) was a major English Romantic poet who, with Samuel Taylor Coleridge, helped to launch the Romantic Age in English literature with their joint publication Lyrical Ballads (1798).

The Man Behind The Lyrics: Life, letters, and literary remains of John Keats: Complete Letters and Two Extensive Biographies of one of the most beloved English Romantic poets

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Man Behind The Lyrics: Life, letters, and literary remains of John Keats" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. John Keats (1795-1821) was an English Romantic poet. The poetry of Keats is characterized by sensual imagery, most notably in the series of odes. Today his poems and letters are some of the most popular and most analyzed in English literature. During the 19th century, critics deemed them unworthy of attention, distractions from his poetic works. During the 20th century they became almost as admired and studied as his poetry, and are highly regarded within the canon of English literary correspondence. T. S. Eliot described them as "certainly the most notable and most important ever written by any English poet." Keats spent a great deal of time considering poetry itself, its constructs and impacts, displaying a deep interest unusual amongst his milieu who were more easily distracted by metaphysics or politics, fashions or science.

Words For A Princess

This book is a collection of some of my poems I have written over a period of time for the one I have and do Love, oh so dearly. It consists of raw emotions and an expression of it in a manner I deem fit in my conscience. It's the beauty of Love and all that it associates with that inspires us to be the best version of ourselves, and that is simply what I am trying to convey here. In testing times and in Happiness, we feel something, and expressing that to it's justified intensity is what I have tried to achieve. It's Simple, It's Real and It's straight from my Heart. I hope you connect with it too and feel the way I do.

Thanks for Reading :)

Light Amidst the Darkness: A collection of Christian poems and writings to inspire hope (Books for Christians Book 1)

Within these pages you will not only read, but also experience, the unconditional love and redemption God has for all His children - even those that doubt His existence.This book begins with multiple poems that were written throughout the time that the final story, Many Paths; My Journey, takes place. Life is full of many paths that we can choose to walk along. Some paths are full of good and others full of bad. This book is the story of my journey as a troubled teen clouded with society's misconception of the "perfect" woman, and the journey to find God amidst the darkness of life.
