Every character, a piece of the author -
Every story, a piece of their soul...
What began as a simple writing exercise soon turned solid. And what remains is a literary cavalcade of mixed metaphors and images painted on a mental canvas with delicacy and precision.
Pieces of Me is a step behind the curtain into the author's mind. Told through a disembodied narrator, the reader bounces between time and space - between the here and now, and the intricate details of the author's broken past that have woven their way into his tales.
Be prepared to embark on a literary adventure inside the dark recesses of the creative mind.
"Painting words on a mental canvas..."

About the Author
Writing is dreaming with your eyes open. - Dave Burns *** Dave Burns is just your typical guy with a passion for writing and a mastery of the backspace key. He began writing at a young age (as most writers do), and completed a compilation of short stories and poems at Ottawa University where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Religion and Philosophy. He has been writing ever since, but his passion was re-sparked in the fall of 2009 when he decided to take his craft seriously. Since then, he has been very active in the entire writing process and community. In the spring on 2012, Burns founded The Ottawa Writer's Guild (www.theottawawritersguild.wordpress.com) - a collection of writers in Ottawa, KS dedicated to the love of writing. In addition to writing, he is also teaching Creative Writing in the Ottawa, KS community. Books and Projects: The Movement: A Children's Story for Grown-ups is his third completed work; second complete novel - yet first publication. The sequel, The Movement: Revisited, is the completion of the tale begun in the first installment. Edem's Flight is the third book in The Movement Series. It is a spiritual successor and side story to the first two works. The Movement: Concluded - is a complete anthology including all three works in The Movement Series. His other works include Pieces of Me and a million little gods: the clearwater chronicles. All his books are available in paperback at most online retailers, as well as on Kindle. Dave has also created a magazine entitled Uncarved: The Literature and Arts Magazine. The second issue is now available. Visit the author online @ www.uncarvedbooks.com
