Cold River Press has released Jim Bourey's The Distance Between Us . which is a collection of poetry that explores "relationships and how they happen, how they waver and break apart, how they find ways to continue. Some of the poems are about two people but many have a larger scope. Some of the poems look at the past, some at the future." Some poems examine Bourey's spiritual journey. Other poems focus more on a particular moment of discovery. "I’m extremely happy with the design and visual elements of the book, thanks to Linda J. Bourey’s cover photo, and to Dave Boles, my publisher and talented graphic designer." Readers can order a signed copy from the author. Email Bourey at this address firstname.lastname@example.org.
