Book Synopsis
We are sitting upon the wall waiting as the world has taken its downward spiral. The Self has become deemed more worthy than the collective being, and we await from the sidelines for the whole show to crash and burn.

This manuscript is two shorter chapbooks combined into this one collection. Ghost in the Reflection-Letters to Erin began originally as a series on titled simply Ghost in the Reflection. It was a collection in the works that addressed the decline of kindness and morality in modern society. As the series began to take shape and grow it began to ring similiar to a second collection that poet James F. Miller II had sitting in the files of his desktop computer.

The first half of this collection, Ghost in the Reflection, is a collection of observations of a world that by day becomes less the par. A variety of voices tell their stories, outlining a decline in morals, values and/or society in general. These footprints follow the voices and observations of writers many generations before us.

Meanwhile, the second half of the collection, Letters to Erin, is a narrative that displays these declines of morals and values as the thorns they have become in the present day traditional relationship, which is the core of any society. It documents the highs and the lows and the daily battles between love and hate, against the backdrop of society’s decaying morality. It examines the hurt, the struggle, the deceit, betrayal, and the disappointments that arrive in such an arrangement. We can find every darker aspect of this decline represented inside the shadows of these brutal wounds decorated with the harshness of unfiltered truth.

This collection contains mature topics and adult language not suitable for a younger audience.

"Miller is unafraid to delve into our current political and social climate in all its flaws, passionate love in all its ups and down and presents an ode to hope for our future children, that they will learn from our mistakes." -Isabelle Kenyon

James Miller is a poet from the Midwest. His passion for writing began to burn for him once he learned to write in cursive. Putting pen to page is what makes him feel alive.

He has been published in the Tecumseh Review (Vincennes University, Indiana), in 2000, as well as various anthologies between 1997 and 2000.
Jim was born in 1970s in a small town in northern Indiana. His early life was spent between Indiana, Florida and the New York area. After his many years in college, he took to the road and travelled the country in a quest to find himself and some meaning or purpose in life.
During his academic career, James studied English, creative writing, journalism, advertising, philosophy and music/audio recording. During that time, he attended several smaller community colleges including Vincennes University where he studied English-Creative Writing, Journalism and Music-Audio Recording. During his time at VU he held an editor position on the school’s newspaper, The Trailblazer, for four semesters.
