A few notes about the Author & His Book

   Behind the Smile is the first collection of exceptional poetic renderings by long-time literary author, Richard W. Jenkins.
   This 152 page book is composed of 145 poems, in 52 different poetic forms. Its chapters cover Poetry, Romance, Life, Love, Emotion, Imagery, Sadness, Humor, Japanese Forms, Promise, Sensuality, Fantasy, and Thinking … there is even a section on how to write each form. This is a book for poetry lovers from Beginner to Master, from a Poet's Poet.
   Richard is a simple man who grew-up living with various of his kin folk, traveling the nation, learning life, people, and himself, falling in and out of love too many times, earned several degrees from binary logic to drafting, electricity, writing, and design … a few of his loves, attributes, and accomplishments include: Poet Laureate (reading, writing, and teaching poetry), an avid golfer, shooting firearms, collecting (knives, swords, and books), grandmaster teacher of Taekwondo, master electrician, general contractor, commercial artist, philosophy, playing acoustic and classical guitar, singing (average, at best), art (acrylics, pastels, pencil, water color, and charcoal), loves swimming, dancing, and watching people and helping others, animals, and Nature, etc
   He says, "The more I do and learn, the less I realize I know and can't do, and it is these that humble and keep me the simple man I am and, hopefully, always will be."
   He would like for you to order his book, enjoy its soft, suede-like feel, and become lost in its pages many times over for a lifetime to come, with a permanent home in your personal library to share with family and friends.
   Blessings and enjoyable reading to you, one and all.
😃

It's so cute, I looked it up, and like 10 people on the reviews who ordered it were from here. c: This place is so supportive! I might ask for it for my birthday c:
You handled the issue calmly unlike many would have (including me). I probably would have freaked out lol!

Richard, as always you handled this issue like a true gentleman, but I don’t feel there was any reason for you to apologize for her misunderstanding. Take care and stay safe. Mj 😇

Richard - you must think I passed away, well I haven't. Though I can't tell you of any one of your poems I loved, there are many, I continue reading your book. I have written more poetry and a couple of novels and short stories. The best I have done, in getting any of the stories published are, they are now available on Kindle.
I hope that all is well with you - take care - Dave

It's great to know about your book. I am very sure it is one of those that could be read over and again because of the silky feeling it leaves on the the tongue. I can say because that's what all your poems do :) But, is ita available in India?
