Penny Aiken, a retiree and author out of South Carolina, has completed his first book “A Penny for Your Thoughts”: a finely crafted collection of poetry that is engaging and filled with colorful characters and gorgeous settings.
On how he would describe the book and its message, author Penny Aiken said simply, “It is more about everyday occurrences and general ordinary subjects. People and things that we take for granted as we move along through life.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Penny Aiken’s poignant work is a powerful journey through the thoughts and words of a prolific poet and is a luminous example of the creative potential of the human mind.
When asked to describe the book and his motivation for writing it, author Penny Aiken said, “I wrote this collection of poems because I have read extensively and the more I read the more fascinated I became with the relationships of animals and people with one another. I believed, at the time, there would be little need for another book of poetry but while analyzing my own observances and beliefs, the genuine need for more lines that rhymed with a cadence of life took me over. I wanted to make the facts as much as can possibly flow evenly with true feelings about my life and others who have surely experienced a deep down desire to put pen to paper. I caught myself daydreaming about someday seeing the name Penny Aiken on the front cover of some kind of book. Writing in first person lets me live mentally the actions that are being relayed in the poems. Naming my book A Penny for Your Thoughts just seemed to fit the mold. It sounded right to everyone I mentioned it to so I finally sold myself on using it. I have tried to write such a book.”
Readers who wish to experience this creative work can purchase “A Penny for Your Thoughts” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
