Harborton, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/01/2015 -- Spy Pond is another release by the acclaimed publishing house, Prolific Press. After scouring hundreds of manuscripts by both professional and aspiring authors, Spy Pond has been awarded a prestigious contract for full publishing. Copies are available at Amazon, and due to Prolific's impressive distribution chain, it is already available at thousands of other booksellers spanning countries all over the world.
Spy Pond is a poetic journey that is as relatable as it is refreshing, with poems that allow you to see the world through a compression that is as poignant as it is versatile. Unlike many other books of its kind, Spy Pond is approachable, and listed in the BIAC as a family title (poetry: general), despite its appeal to scholarly and alternative markets. These are the kinds of books Prolific Press is known for—diamonds among the rocky shoals of the eroding sea of literature today.

What are others saying about this book?
"In this rich collection, Ed Meek "pull[s] us back from the edge" (as in his poem, On Edge). Compelling and diverse, whether his subject is the Boston Marathon bombing, addressing Robert Frost, considering silence, love, loss, or the Iraqi war—he manages to pull me in and then set me back down again with deeper knowledge, contemplation, and perspective." Cynthia Brackett-Vincent, publisher of the Aurorean poetry journal; author, Questions About Home
"Ed Meek's poems give a slap to the reader's complacency. Whether it is a wild coyote stalking its domestic prey on the broad and manicured lawns of the suburbs, or his contemplation of our inevitable decline, he is a poet who constantly explores what is beneath the scrim, the facade, the theatrical props, the smoke and mirrors we allow ourselves to be blinded by." Doug Holder, Publisher Ibbetson Street Press, author of Eating Grief at 3 AM. (Muddy River Books 2013)
