Greetings, fellow indie writers and readers! I am Beem Weeks, author of the historical fiction/coming-of-age novel JAZZ BABY and SLIVERS OF LIFE: A COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES. My goal in life is to promote the indie movement to the world. I can be found on Twitter @VoiceOfIndie and @BeemWeeks. I enjoy indie films, loud music, and a well told story. Lansing, Michigan, USA.
Slivers Of Life
I first discovered the immensely talented indie author and poet Lee Robbins on the Koobug writer/reader web site. Robbins has a knack for creating amazing poems that touch down in utter darkness and set sail into the light. They paint pictures both pretty and ugly. Life is quite raw and very much on display in these short pieces of brilliance.
Robbins, with the skill of a surgeon, dissects reality in ways that most writers will quietly envy. His works are at times quite humorous, and yet can often be shocking in their stark observations. Lee Robbins strings together words that are bold and truthful, raw and delicate, delicious and bitter.
Cautionary tales stand side by side with notions of revenge. Daytime TV and drug addiction square off in competing pieces. Nothing is off limits in the fascinating worlds created by a true gem in the world of indie authors.
If you haven’t discovered Lee Robbins, I urge you to visit his page at Koobug and sample a master finding his own rhythm. Then buy this book; it’s one you’ll find yourself returning to over and over again.
