     Love, romance, pleasure, desire, loss, betrayal, anger, and pain. K.L. Loveley explores her changing and sometimes camouflaged emotions within her debut poetry collection. 
    “Go places, seek pleasure, wine, dine, and dance. Defer gratification for a fine romance. Blend into the crowd, not noticed, not seen. Camouflage complete; a chameleon’s dream.”

    Welcome to My Orchard. For many years this eighty-some-year-old lady has found it easier to share her life interactions with words in written form, either prose or poetry. For years they have only been like seeds planted in the soil of book clubs, cafes, and public readings plus some that were recognized and published mainly on the Internet, but the bulk has now grown into trees and their fruits wait to be enjoyed. If fruits that have ripened are not collected and shared, they will fall to the ground. But if they are collected and cared for quickly, they can still be savored. Once they have lain on the ground without receiving any attention, everyone loses...the fruit never has a chance to fulfill its purpose. So I am offering a variety of poetic trees from which to select an assortment of life-flavored fruits . . . you just have to find and enjoy those that you relate to or have a taste for. There is no hurry. Take your time and savor some from all the different orchards. The first orchard I titled “Seedlings” because, as Phineas P. Quimby stated, “Thought like the seed germinates and comes forth, like the tree, in the form of an idea. It then waits like the fruit to be eaten.” There are a few more orchards beyond the “Seedlings” and I hope you visit them all often . . . enjoy their special fruits and share them with my blessings!

    Pride, justice, and vengeance. Aristocracy and democracy vie for ultimate power over Rome, and each faction violently erupts when Coriolanus takes the political stage. After receiving glorious accolades for taking an enemy city when the plebian soldiers cowered without the gates, the common people find his arrogance and pride offensive. Now, banished from the very city for which he was prepared to lay down his life, he strikes up an unholy alliance with his country's enemies. His intent is clear - to wreak upon Rome the full magnitude of his unparalleled revenge.
    
    Three years ago, BJ Harrison revolutionized the Shakespeare/audiobook format in his groundbreaking production of Hamlet. Now he brings the perhaps lesser known but equally powerful Tragedy of Coriolanus onto the audio stage.
    
    Not only is the text well interpreted and presented, the play has been optimized for the audiobook format. To make the text more understandable in the audio format, an introduction is read at the beginning of each act. Also, each speaker is clearly marked with his own voice and narrative tags. This is the perfect way to discover the wonders of Shakespeare in an audio format. Students and Shakespeare veterans alike will enjoy this powerful production.
