Free: The Nestlings: A Compilation of Small Truths

This book is a compilation of excerpts from the books of 2019, the books from the series, The Angelic Premie, both those published and yet to be launched from the Series, The Nest.

The books of 2019 began with the seedling that is the too early born babe. They grew into the images that were informed by the experiences of the caretakers and the loved ones of these babes. Ultimately, they shapeshifted into something more powerful, for they became entry points into the liminal, in-between world of the imagination. Free on Kindle.

Desde el exilio: A Collection of Poems from the Exile

Desde el exilio: A Collection of Poems from the Exile
From the Exile was born as a poetic memoir to describe the experience of being born in Venezuela in 1988 to the publication of this poem collection in 2019.

This period entitles the last years of the Venezuelan democracy, already bruised by the discontent caused by the different political parties in the country before the arrival of Hugo Chavez Frias in 1998. In addition, it also describes how as the years passed, the elected president turned into an authoritarian figure sheltered by the Castro-communism ideology that firmly followed until his death in 2013.

Nevertheless, in spite of the death of the dictator, the suffering of the Venezuelans was far from culminating, because when Chavez died the power passed to his acolyte Nicolás Maduro Moros. The once time bus driver took the power of the country through fraudulent elections, that were controlled by an electoral council, mostly Chavista.

Maduro, who would follow the Chavista and Castro-communism legacy, led Venezuela to preside over the lists of the world’s most dangerous and poor countries. In this state, Venezuela struggled with hyperinflation never seen before in the oil nation’s history causing the scarcity of commodities, such as food and medicine throughout the region.

Resulting in millions of inhabitants fleeing in what was known by the name of Venezuelan diaspora looking for the future that was taken from them in other countries. The nostalgia for the lost country, from exile. $8.49 on Kindle.

Free: A Fate Unwound Too Soon

Free: A Fate Unwound Too Soon
This is a book of photography and poems, of images that convey to the readers the experience of being the too early born and of being the loved one or caretaker of the micro preemie. I wrote the poems included in order to share what I felt and learned as a caretaker of the tiniest of premature babies. One thread has run through the whole of my experience in the NICU: the rise of the unheralded sympathy that is native to all things.

What I expect to see in the intensive care setting is the most noble form of compassion, the love of parent for child, but what I witness is much more: the acts of kindness between strangers. At the center of this giving, I always find the too early born babe, the angel who brings with it the knowledge and revelation that initiates the rise of sympathy that is expressed as compassion. Free on Kindle.

Free: The Banished Lands

Free: The Banished Lands

A kingdom in danger. The old world is gone and barely even histories remain. But something from that time is returning. The closing lines of a farewell poem, written centuries ago by the last great king of the old world, might prove to be more than they seem:

The world and all its light shall fade
I’ll stay with her beneath the shade
And wait until the world’s remade…

Something is creeping at the fringes of the world. Is it just the talk of frightened villagers? Or is it something more? Join us in this entirely new fantasy world. The Banished Lands combines the best of epic fantasy, fairy tale, mythology, poetry, romance and mystery. If you love a good old-fashioned story, The Banished Lands will deliver on your expectations.

A mysterious fog blankets the forest just outside the town of Suriya. A dark plot unfolds as Durian and his friends discover ties between a strange wanderer and the warlike barbarian kingdom far to the north. Are the mysterious things happening in the forest a prelude to invasion?

What happens next will propel Durian and his friends into the middle of an unsolved riddle a dozen centuries in the making. Free on Kindle.

Sayings To Live Your Life By

Sayings To Live Your Life By

Sayings to Live Your Life By is an examination of the odd world of the metaphor and its various counterparts for curious readers with a knack for linguistics. What are the raw meanings behind these sayings? How did they originate? How have they become a part of common speech? These questions are addressed for the commonly used phrases collected here.

Gregg Arthur Southgate breaks down selected examples in an effort to find their meaning and purpose. While often nonsensical on the surface, metaphorical statements are used to help analyze difficult situations, provide a degree of simplicity in challenging decisions, and allow communication of events and circumstances. Their connection to intangible and complicated subjects such as philosophy and morality is vital, offering a way to put the indescribable into words. $0.99 on Kindle.
