"MARK STELLINGA'S BOOKSTORE plus my 58-year portfolio of legitimate, quality "rhyme and meter" POETRY."
FYI - I've been penning childrens books, suspense novellas, a big old suspense novel, and what I call "commercial verse" for many years now, and, at 61-years-old (in 2011), I felt it was time to begin self-publishing my work in order to share it with those who appreciate" : 1) "intriguing circumstances", 2) "adventurous situations", and 3) high quality rhyme-and-meter verse, which, I might add, has become surprisingly scarce.
There are several books here for youngsters, as well as some for adults, along with oodles and oodles of the very type of poetry that, prior to the early 1900s, made it an easy genre to actually sell. That's what I mean by "commercial verse" - it RHYMES.....and is typically a bit easier to comprehend, or get, than a lot of contemporary "poetry".
|Here's what I have to offer you at this time, and, hopefully, there will be a lot more to come:|
"Satellite Detectives" - an exciting mystery for kids 7 to 14 - or grownups.
"Murder on the Bus" - a fast-paced adult crime drama.
"Big Dog, Little Dog" - an adult, full-of-surprises crime drama.
"The Bus Stop Assassin" - an adult crime drama.
"Da Burnin' Place" - a life-threatening ordeal for 3 brave elderly African-American gentlemen
"My Sentiments Exactly / New and Selected Poems" - 137 poems, and it's ILLUSTRATED!
"A Treasure Trove of Rhyme" - a wonderful 361 page, illustrated, gift-quality coffee-table-sized collection of widely diverse verse.
"4 Audio CDs of my traditional verse" - EACH lasting more than 4 1/2 hours!
"My best 450 or so poems" - about half of what I've penned over the past 60 years (as of 2023), currently offered in both TEXT (.DOCs) format. AND - though currently under construction - around 250 AUDIO files - (MP3s).
"Pool and Billiard Collectibles" - a fabulous, all-color, 288 page, gift-quality hardcover "price guide". A truly one of a kind work.
