LOVERBOY

Genre: Dark Fantasy, Romance
Type: Free Verse, Traditional
Published: November 2018
Formats: Kindle, Paperback
Blurb: “A fever dream of romantic grotesque, Loverboy is a dance of love, heartache and hatred that intertwines horror with beauty as if they were never separate. Classy and sensual like a forbidden fairytale, this collection of dark poetry paints its phrases from bittersweet fantasy, gender identity, mental illness, broken heritage, obsession and society.”

Published: April 2019
Formats: Kindle, Paperback
Blurb: Absolute Heaven is an omnibus of poems that capture the darkness which hides deep in the mind. Devilishly blurring the lines between romantic hatred and grotesque love, Absolute Heaven is a work of raw emotion, blood and nightmare that spans all genres of horror.

BLOOD BALLET

Series: S.M. Shuford Poetry Collection (#2)
Genre:
Horror, Feminist Poetry
Type: Free Verse, Traditional
Published: May 2019
Formats: Kindle, Paperback, ePub
Blurb: Straight from the dark side of the female experience, this collection is a theatre of blood sprouted from an embryo of prejudice, injustice and mental illness. The poems in Blood Ballet may wear a violent mask, but their core holds a thousand years of women’s heartbreak and pain. Blood Ballet is a social and psychological horror story of murders, witch hunts, self-harm and nightmares – a hidden history brought to the open in honor of those who have had to suffer it in silence.

Genre:
 Dark Fantasy, Romance
Type: Free Verse, Traditional
Published: May 2019
Formats: Kindle, Paperback, ePub
Blurb: Infinite Summer is spun with a love that peaks and dies like the sun. Inspired by the dual nature of fairytales, this collection of poems is heavy with magic, ghosts, and memories lost to the golden enchantments of a summer’s day. Infinite Summer is in equal parts haunting and charming, a macabre kind of romance that only an imp’s curse could bring about.
