Book reviews are a gift from the reader to both the author and to other readers. Each of us has been on a different journey, so each person reads a book, especially a book of poetry, and relates to the book in different ways. Reading multiple reviews provides much more insight into a book than simply reading the back cover.
My special thanks goes out to those who have reviewed Timeless Tales and offered their insights with future readers.

“Soul-stirring and heart-warming!”

“This book is the perfect way to end the day in peace and hope”
Today marks a milestone, the day I was born.
On the outside I’m tattered, torn, faded, and worn.
But inside I am younger, with so much to share.
What I’ve learned on my journey, will anyone care?
I put my thoughts out there as poems in rhyme.
I pray they reach others, endure a long time.
Will the book be a tree, when it falls no one hears?
Or will it touch others and dry up some tears?
I’m a newbie at rhyming, I started last spring.
I love rhyme and rhythm, it lets my heart sing.
What a birthday surprise on this day it would make,
If my book was deemed worthy and not a mistake.
If you happen to read it, then please let me know
If a poem has touched you or helped you to grow.
Author interviews provide readers with more understanding of the author, the books, and the motivation for writing.
Two interviews with John Alexander and his book of poetry, Timeless Tales, allow him to share more in depth with his readers.
