ToC for The Withering!

The Withering is a compilation of my 50 best poetry from my early years.  It clocks in at around 9800 words and contains an afterword, endnotes, the chronological order, and the acknowledgments.  I am working on getting an introduction for it and some blurbs.

I have also sent it off to two interested publishers, so cross your fingers!

My Afterword gives a little history of how these poems came to be written and what I was going through during that time that perhaps influenced a lot of the themes in it.  Here is the first paragraph.

" I began writing horror and dark fantastical poetry since the age of twelve.  My inspirations then included writers, musicians, and artists such as Edgar Allan Poe, J. R. R. Tolkien, The Misfits, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, and Luis Royo, among others.  The Withering is basically the end result of listening to a lot of metal and reading horror."

The endnotes give a little insight on various poems from what inspired them to some being certain milestones in my poetic career.
