Nominated for Creative Loafing's Best of the Bay 2018 -

Best Book by a Local Author Published in the Last Twelve Months!  


Influenced by the poetry of Charles Bukowski, Jack Kerouac, and Leonard Cohen, D. Michael Hardy explores the depths of the human heart and soul in this collection of raw, unflinching and evocative poetry, accompanied by haunting black and white photography.

Pain and Longing tells a story of love, loss, and the heartache that inevitably follows. It is a moving portrait of romance and regret, depression and loneliness, the joys of solitude and the will to carry on.

In 2015, after Donald Trump announced his run for president, a group of Tampa Bay-area writers gathered for a Halloween event and tackled the writing prompt of “What would the world look like if Trump becomes president?”

The answers were horrifying, hilarious, and surprisingly accurate. 
Now, we’ve brought these satirical stories together in an anthology, so readers can compare these authors’ predictions to reality. 

All proceeds from this book will be donated to the  ACLU of Florida.
