    So I'm on to my second anthology now, and I'm glad to announce that it will be illustrated by my good friend Barb Dunn who is also an artist and has been for the last few decades, I'm really excited as this will add a whole new level of depth to my book.

    You can find my first poetry book which is a chapbook on Amazon entitled Super Mega Awesome Chapbook here in ebook form and the paperback version can be found here. :)

    Here is one poem from my first book that I especially like, entitled "Power".

    Power



    Some have a lot while others have a little

    It has the ability to make things in its way brittle

    Too much of it will corrupt one absolutely

    While too little will leave one at others mercy



    Many are driven to seek it all their lives

    Even if it means neglecting husbands or wives

    In and of itself it will not grant happiness

    In fact it may lead to a state of moodiness



    The truth is one will want more and more

    The more and more of it he is able to score

    And at the end of the day it can be dangerous

    In the wrong hands when used with ill purpose

    Just released my second poetry chapbook today, well technically I submitted it yesterday but it's been published today. It's entitled "Visceral Tremors" and you can find the ebook here and the paperback version here. :)

    Here is a poem from it entitled Beauty:-

    Beauty



    It has been said it is in the eye of the beholder

    And this is true even if it is a burden to shoulder

    We may be ugly to one person yet to another

    We are the person who in love they want to smother



    Since it is relative we can get away with acts such as

    Not using make up or dressing up or all of that jazz

    But we still have to maintain a modicum of restraint

    And keep from keeping ourselves totally unkempt

    Great news, my two books that are out (still working on a third, want to give this one some extra lovin') are now cheaper, their prices have been slashed to $0.99 for the second one and $1.99 for the first (USD), if you didn't want to pick them up because of the prices then hopefully you can swipe one or both of 'em now.

    Just head on down to your regional Amazon site, type in my name (Allan Aliwa) in the search box and there they shall be.

    Edit: also if you do end up buying one, please log back on to write an honest review, they really do help.

    Edit 2: I raised the price of my second book to 1.99 for uniformity.
