Richard Allen Taylor is Armed and Luminous

AAL Cover.psdWe’re pleased to announce the release of moonShine review contributor Richard Allen Taylor’s latest book of poetry. Armed and Luminous offers an enigmatic and cohesive tale centered around the question, “what if angels…” Taylor entices us to expel our preconceived notions regarding angels—and some of the bigger questions of life. As always, Richard charms us with his innate talent for capturing the personal, intimate details while conveying universal messages.

Pre-order Armed and Luminous NOW through Main Street Rag Bookstore, Coming Soon page, and receive nearly half off the cover price—currently $8.00, but this deal won’t last long!

As with all our contributors, I encourage you to support Richard Allen Taylor by purchasing his poetry collection. I promise this is one you don’t want to miss!
