Coming on the heels of his first book, “Echoes and Shadows,” Doug Wilson’s second collection of poetry, “Into The Black,” was published through I-Universe in September of 2020.
Unlike Echoes and Shadows—a lifetime compilation—Into the Black is a current work with poetry being written daily over the last year. This collection of poetry tackles the many facets of romantic love and the book is filled with what Wilson calls “snapshots of life,” moments and situations that most of us are familiar with and can easily relate to.
Wilson’s poetry is relaxed and down to earth. The poetry often touches the readers emotions and makes them think about their own experiences. There are 125 poems in this collection. Into the Black establishes Wilson as a developed poet, and he is especially proud of this book as it was a dedicated effort to build a collection of poetry that everyone can enjoy.
Doug is a 1968 graduate of Grayling High School and a 1972 graduate of Central Michigan University. He continues to live and work in Grayling.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, local book signing events have been postponed until Spring of 2021. Copies of both Echoes and Shadows and Into The Black are available at Tip’n The Mitten in Downtown Grayling or on Amazon.com. Wilson has a third book, “The Well of Sorrows” in development.
