Black Ice & Fire

BI&Fcover

Black Ice & Fire will be taken down August 1, 2014 and will go out as a Kindle Book on Amazon shortly thereafter. A physical book may follow sometime later, Lord willing. As Black Ice & Fire goes down, a book of short stories will start to appear here on James Ross Kelly.com called Now these Present Ghosts that will be about 50 stories of similar genre of many of my poems–I will try to post one per week. Then, 2015 may begin to see my novel, its about 50,000 words and is in a second draft.

This blog was intended to assemble  new and old poems from the past 40 years.   I’m still writing poetry,  but other things have always been clanking around in  the big wondering machine that makes this go.

I personally want to deeply thank those of you that have followed this Blog on WordPress and elsewhere, and hope you will buy the  upcoming modestly priced Kindle book. The availability  will be first announced here–in a post all followers will receive. Thanks again!  James Kelly

  1. Glad to see you are amounting to something though it pains me to see that you have settled in Calif. Look us up if you pass through
    Gold Hill. Phone # is still the same.
