Layne Thrasher’s 100 Sonnets- Love and Demise

Layne Thrasher's debut book is now available here. Titled “100 Sonnets- Love and Demise,” the author takes you on a tumultuous tour through everything pleasurable, painful and disturbing about human relationships. Layne Thrasher’s personal notes about the book are found below:

“Writing is not always peacefully releasing. Sometimes the words haunt, keeping one awake at night until they are released on the piece of paper where they live and breathe and ultimately die if not remembered. “

See for yourself if Layne Thrasher lives up to his own words with the impact the words in this book have. Thrasher continues,

“Other times these words float around, forcing the author and others empathetic to relive the reasons and events which cause their creation in the first place.

Sometimes the hand cannot keep up with the thoughts, they suffocate and drown one’s self and turn on you. Perhaps they will come to define you. In a world where we are all slaves to something or another, I gladly choose passion and words, passion in words as my fix. I hope 100 Sonnets will take you to that place you have always longed to go but have had difficulty finding.”

Layne Thrasher released this book during July of 2003. Layne Thrasher has another novel in the works to be released soon. “100 Sonnets – Love and Demise” by Layne Thrasher is available in hard-cover and paperback.

Elements of consonance, metaphors and similes, theme, personification, and other defined literary tools can add technical elements to a piece of writing much like a schooled musician can to an orchestral piece. What is missing often in today’s art is the actual feeling and emotion which draws you in to where you feel the pain and joy, actually shed a tear from someone else’s self-expression.
