Cover Reveal: From Where I Stand by Robert Zimmerman

It is a great pleasure to be able to reveal the cover of From Where I Stand by Robert Zimmerman.  A poet myself, I look forward to reading Robert’s collection. I believe poetry is an art that gets little to no recognition and hope to lure more people into the wonderful world of prose. Please join me in anticipation of From Where I Stand due out in November.

From Robert Zimmermann comes From Where I Stand, an emotional debut poetry collection.  Zimmermann explores strained parental relationships, loss of life, and the despair associated with grief.  Alongside these darker themes, he delves into the small areas of life that often go unnoticed but become the hope we are searching for.

Expected release November 2012

Example’s of Robert’s poetry can be found in the poetry section on his blog. He also has poems published by Albany Poets.

QUOTES:

“Rob writes with an incredible sense of observation and feeling made all the more poignant by his struggles. Every verse is genuine and ever” – Ben Ditmars, author of Night Poems

“Zimmermann has achieved something rarely seen in modern poetry. Each poem is a personal and detailed story that will strike the heart of the reader with a torrent of emotion.  Zimmermann balances the dark and light beautifully and without a hint of hesitation.” – Jessica Fortunato, author of The Sin Collector Trilogy

“Rob’s poetry has a very real tone to it and in some ways creates a tragic yet poetic story.” – Paulina Ulrich, author of the Flightless Bird Series

“Honest, heartfelt and moving” – Amber Jerome~Norrgard, author of In The Gloaming

_____

Robert has been writing poetry since the eleventh grade. His writing started as impulsive rambling, but soon became a passion. A few years later he attended SUNY Potsdam where he received a B.A. in Creative Writing.
His main focus is poetry, but at times you can find him dabbling in short fiction. Robert has also created the blog A Life Among The Pages, where he posts his writing as well as book reviews.

When he’s not reading or writing, Robert enjoys spending time with his dog, Deuc. Deuc ran out of the woods in August 2011 and that have been inseparable ever since.
