Every city needs a writers club. Skiatook has one. It’s called Skiatook Writers And Poets, and our group meets every month at the Skiatook Public Library. The poems, stories, and accounts in this book were written by our members, past and present.

When S.W.A.P. first started, the goal was to bring together and build a community of writers from all walks of life. This continues to be the mission of S.W.A.P., as well as giving local writers opportunities to have their work published in books like this. This anthology of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction was compiled from submissions collected during 2017 and 2018. Hope you love the book.

Got a great little life going for me here I’m really grateful.

New Books by Ping Wins

New series Bizarre Science With Ping Wins sets out tomorrow Sunday Feb 18, 2018, (02/18/2018) with the first two installments: Bizarre Science 1: Terraforming, Ancient Sumerians, and the Future of Humanity, and Bizarre Science 2: Ancient Mesopotamians, Nazca Geometry, and the Future of the Universe. Bizarre Science 3 will appear March 4, 2018.

The Bizarre Science With Ping Wins books are written in the tradition of Mysteries of the Unknown, published by Time-Life books between 1987 and 1991. Since that time, many more unexplained things have occurred and been discovered. With these books, may wisdom and imagination step forth together.

Website Overhaul and New Book Projects

Completely revamped my whole site, collecting books, videos, recordings (both musical and spoken) into one place for the first time ever. For years, these things have been scattered around the web in various places, (Amazon, YouTube, Facebook, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, etc) and I have finally centralized my creative efforts.

Speaking of efforts, I have just completed the first of what should become a series with the release of Bizarre Science with Ping Wins.  It’s a non-fiction book about subjects that are usually on the outskirts of human knowledge but are also coming into the forefront of the imaginations of the curious. In it, a lot of ground is covered in a short time. Ancient Sumerians, a near-light-speed engine, colonizing Mars and terraforming, the Longyou Caves in China, and many other subjects are discussed. It’s a great little book, and a fantastic start to what I’d like to turn into a series of highly entertaining, informative, and interesting books. If you’re into science, and the mysteries of our Universe and world, check it out.

That’s all for now; I have a huge amount of reading to do before I can finish the second installment of Bizarre Science, but believe me, if the immediate reaction is any indication, (the book has instantly shot up to #1 in two categories during the free introductory period) this book and series are going to be a hit. So, cheers, and thanks for reading.

Sarcastic, Funny, and Real: Poetry of Katie V. A. Holcomb out Jul 25, 2017

Words Eat Words ©2017 Katie V A Holcomb Cover

Katie V. A. Holcomb is a sarcastic, funny, smart woman with a knack for writing poems that burn, tickle, and sometimes slap you. Her first book of poetry, Words Eat Words is out on her birthday, July 25, 2017 from Katie V. A. Holcomb, and jpdBooks. It’s good. Read it.

Katie is a close friend of mine, like a sister. She is an Oklahoma writer who has talked about writing a book of poetry since we met six years ago. Now, with the release of Words Eat Words, that dream is coming true for Katie, and I am happy to help her get the word out and help promote her book. It’s good! Read it.

Writing poetry is a very special thing to do, because when you write poetry, if you do it right, as Katie does, you address both the intellect and the emotions. Poetry is a synthesis of fiction and nonfiction, of art and facts. When you read a good piece of poetry, you feel as if you have encountered something unique, and that it opens a window into the soul of the person who has written it. That is how I felt when I read Words Eat Words, so I’m all about it. If you like your Margaret Atwood and Robert Frost with a side of Saul Williams and snark, check out Words Eat Words. It’s good. Read it!

Available on Kindle July 25, 2017.

Happy Birthday Katie!
