On the 1st of July an anthology comes out called Nova Parade. You will find a few of my poems among the pages, actually I am the only poet you will see in this anthology. However, I’ve known many of the other writers for quite some time at this point and they never disappoint. Oh and the best part? This anthology will be absolutely free!

See You In Heaven, Paperback Release!
My poetry compilation See You In Heaven will begin popping up throughout the internet. As of right now it is available in paperback, but soon will be out on SmashWords, Kindle, and even torrent download versions as cheap or free as I can make it. I’m not looking to make any money off this, but rather just get my name out there. The poetry was written during some tough times, some of the work I am proud of and some I am embarrassed of. Either way, hope you like something!
See You In Heaven is a compilation of poetry written during a dark time, both prior to the author’s temporarily successful suicide attempt and following hospitalized resurrection. The subjects of this collection dive into the lowest of pits in existence and pull at heart strings with words of child loss, disaster, love lost, childhood abandonment, addiction, American affairs, and suicide obsession. See You In Heaven is not something to belong among the ranks of the world’s typical poetry, but is a different breed, a raw form to be taken as a poetic visage of absolute sorrow, a deluded message in a bottle.
“Laurance Kitts brings together a collection of unknowable spirals, each line mapping a self-destruction that at times we empathize with, but more often are moved by the apparent sheer necessity of the words. There’s a voice behind these words, one that needs to speak, one you’ll be happy to hear.” ~Caleb J. Ross, author of “I Didn’t Mean To Be Kevin”
”Like suicide poets of the past, Plath and Sexton, Kitts poems resonate with a terrible longing for things that cannot be attained and regrets that cannot be confronted. It’s like getting a front row view of a suicide.” ~Daniel Gonzales, Surreal Grotesque
“Laurance Kitts is some kind of wolf, a hunter with narrowed eyes trained on the prize. Yet he fights not with tooth, nor claw, but with words forged into weapons. These poems are a tool of his survival.” ~Martin Garrity, solarcide.com
