About the Book

Poems of Persuasion: One Knee or Two? Are You Praying or Are You Begging?‘ by Charles T. Thompson,  is a lifelong, collection of thoughts captured on napkins and scraps of paper. This collection may have been inspired by events, not all true, or invoked by a simple request, to explain circumstances.  They are shared in this medium, as a means by which to shed light or provide insight.

In this book of poetry,  the author believes there must be at least one poem that will resonate with every reader. There may be more collections in the future, if the pen has ink, the thoughts and circumstances still continue to flow; of course, with a constant supply of napkins. It is the author’s sincere hope that all your senses will be touched at some point.  That said, it is not recommended to attempt to read all these words in one sitting. Like great cake and ice cream, take it in slices and scoops.

What Service Did We Provide?

When the author approached us, he had a collection of poems that needed to be edited, formatted, and some illustrated. We started with the look and feel of the cover, then took the typography from the cover and utilized it for the poem titles. We then worked with the author to format the layout of the poems (inclusive of line breaks, cadence, punctuation), and edit his poems.
