Jorge Luis Gonzalez Gordillo- Big Nothings & Nicotine

With a sticks-in-your-head title that sounds like the name of an Elliott Smith demo, Jorge Luis Gonzalez has composed a beautifully honest collection of poetry with "Big Nothings & Nicotine". Gordillo covers relatable subjects with passionate rhyme and penmanship, touching on heartbreak, love, relationships and everything in between. His poetry is sure to take you on a cathartic and occasionally turbulent journey through a wide spectrum of emotions, reaching out and speaking directly to you with his expertly penned words.

Lance Cerff- In Grave Spirits 

Jeremy is dead. But he's not been greeted by a polished staircase to the pearly gates, nor has he found himself standing at the precipice of eternal damnation. No, Jeremy is stuck in limbo, and the last thing he remembers before he died is the face of his wife's lover. Not a great way to go. 

Jeremy is introduced to the Committee, a group who control all of the dead who are stuck in limbo. They cannot rest without justice, and if the police cannot deliver, then it is up to the dead to step in.
