I have published three volumes of poetry. Paperback copies are available on Amazon, on my author page. The prices are set based on cost of printing plus Amazon’s fees – I am not out to make money from my poetry.

I had originally intended to also publish Kindle (electronic book) versions, but Amazon was making that difficult (specifically, their intransigence with respect to support for Korean characters), and so I decided that if what you really want is to read the poems cheaply or electronically, I’ll give them away for free. Here are PDF versions of the current volumes:

I would like to request that if you download my books, you let me know that you’ve done so – just out of curiosity. My email is jaredway ⓐ jaredway  ·  com

Alternately, all of the poems are still available on my blog, where they were originally published. I have added “categories” on the blog so that you can view the contents of each book in their original habitat. Bear in mind that when I edited the poems for publication, I sometimes made minor changes, corrections, etc., that I did not back-propagate to these blog versions, so there may be some minor differences. Also, of course, in the blog the poems appear in reverse-chronological order.

If you feel rich, or want to support my poetry, here are the paperback books that can be ordered on Amazon.

Having said the above with respect to giving away the electronic versions of these books, I will nevertheless make a plea: if you are comfortable doing so, I would welcome contributions, as I am pretty far from wealthy at the moment. I have a “Patreon” account (Patreon is a service that allows artists and creators to receive donations). I originally set up the account as being affiliated with my website programming and geofiction work (for my online map-drawing website), so do not be misled by the description or by the name (which is the pseudonym “Luciano Jones” which I use for these activities).
