Celebrating Small Press Month

March is Small Press Month so it's a great time to explore the awesome array of books made available by the hard work of the independent press. We've put together a series of spotlight blog posts to showcase a few of the great small presses we know: And our series isn't done yet! More spotlights will be posted on our blog in the coming days.
Welcome to the Instigation Corner, where we bring you the weirdest writing prompts from instigation master Michael Arnzen.

Pre-Order: On Quiet Nights

From Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann, now translated into English

There’s a place inside us that is cloaked in darkness, rubbed raw with silence. It’s a shadow wrapped in a shadow and it screams, but it screams in harsh whispers. This collection explores the blackness within, the gritty underground that hides inside memories and cowers just outside fear. The poems, paired with illustrations from Matthias Matthies work in sync to create a collage of blunt sexuality, masochistic, and sometimes sadistic recollections of love, reflection, and self-exploration.

On Quiet Nights pulls back the curtains at night and asks readers to think about who they are. Lindemann holds a mirror to soul, capturing desire and need, with the courage to answer some of life’s biggest questions: Who am I? What am I? Why am I?
