Book Review: Life Expressed in 25 Words or Less
Today I will be reviewing Life Expressed in 25 Words or Less by Jack Cantwell.
Life Expressed in 25 Words or Less is full of what the author calls 'word pictures'. At first, when reading this volume, I had the sense that the author wasn't really sure how he wanted to present the volume and exaggerated a personal touch, but after reading through many of the poems I see that the personal touch is by design.
Many of the poems are brilliantly written and vivid, and the author does an amazing job of bringing us into the little poems. The phrasing is brilliant and the style is unique.
Even the poems that don't quite live up to the same quality are amazing, and the author really shines in this short format style of writing. I was thoroughly impressed by it and can see a strong future for this author.
This is well worth reading for anyone who enjoys poetry and likes short and succinct poems!
About the Book
Hi. Welcome to my world of word pictures. They represent selected random thoughts that span a period of almost twenty-five years, from my time in Japan to present day. The next version will include moments from before that time as well. Here’s a reading tip for maximum enjoyment: 1. Read the prologue for background. 2. Read the first aha moment. 3. Pause. 4. Read the next one. 5. Pause. 6. Keep repeating the process. This book has been published in a limited printing run for sharing with friends, family, and business colleagues. I hope you get the picture as you read. Some are written for humor. Some are simple observations of life. Others are either events that triggered expressions of faith or simply thoughts that popped up in my head. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read. I would appreciate feedback too.

I've updated my website in the last couple of days to hopefully be more user friendly and showcase the books a little bit more. I was getting tired of the old template and wanted to try out something new.
It's officially available now, and it is incredibly exciting that Raven's Peak is available for sale in audio format!
I'm about to give you all a conglomerated list of stats and other information about all of the campaigns I have run up to this point. I'll continue updating this post as I run new campaigns over time to keep it up to date!
Here is a list of all of the various promotional options I've compiled over running all of my campaigns, and hopefully some of them will come in handy for you (or at least the ones that you end up using).
I'll be taking questions for the next couple of weeks about anything: upcoming projects, my newest book, or any other topics. I will make a short video to post on youtube answering the questions, as well!
