Hello, all! It’s been a little while, heheh. But I’m back (momentarily) with something I think you’ll like: a giveaway! I’ve never hosted a giveaway before, so this is completely new–and incredibly exciting!–to me. Keep reading to find out more about the book I’m giving away. 🙂
Stars, Sea, Storm, and Sun is a collection of poetry and short stories written by a friend and colleague of mine, Matthew S. Roberts. In its pages, “S^4,” as it has been nick-named, discusses many thing: rejection, loss, uncertainty, the triviality and yet ironic weight of age, the importance of honesty, and more. But, primarily, Stars, Sea, Storm, and Sun is an exploration of pursuit: pursuit of passion, pursuit of truth, pursuit of love, and pursuit of God. Here’s the Goodreads summary:
“EVERYBODY DIES IF WE INTERCEPT THAT SHIP!”
On its way to provide relief to a disease-ravaged Earth, C.S.S. Compassion is forced to make a harrowing choice that drives her crew to pieces.
“LOOK OUT AROUND YOU. IT IS ALL PART OF THE SNARE.”
When a despairing sailor discovers a dark lighthouse wandering the open seas, the supernatural illusions he finds within prove deadly.
“IT’S NOT YOUR SADNESS, MR. CHESTER, IT’S HERS!”
An old man mourning the loss of his wife befriends a young girl whose outlook shows him a light he could not see.
A collection of short stories and poetry, Stars, Sea, Storm, and Sun invites you to explore in the pursuit of Compassion, Truth, Love, and God.
There’s a little bit of everything in this little book: spaceships, intriguing characters, and literary allusions; some serious gothic atmosphere, complete with Dracula vibes; and a heartwarming friendship between a weary old man and a starry-eyed young girl. This book deserves a chance to help you appreciate the profoundness of life, so I’m giving away an extra copy.
However, there are some rules:
