Blood Red Dawn Cover.jpeg

A tour in Iraq, followed by a tour in Afghanistan. It was suggested to Jon that he seek counseling for his PTSD symptoms. Instead, he wrote poems. 72 of Jon’s poems appear in this collection. Searing, soaring, gut-wrenching, sardonic, and philosophical…it’s hard to read this eloquent work without holding your breath because of the immediacy with which each poem places you right in the soldier’s shoes. Blood Red Dawn will stick with you long after you close its covers.

Note: Blood Red Dawn was published by Kitsune Books in 2012. It has only had one print run as Kitsune closed its doors that same year after the owner's passing. 
- Stay tuned for a reprint via Kickstarter! -
