As I get closer to being able to post
my book on this site, I have found some of the hidden difficulties to
doing so. I have downloaded a 'trial' version of software that will allow
me to publish my book as an 'E-book'. It looks promising, so far. It will
allow me to do some things not currently being offered in most ebooks,
with my current book, and my future books, that will enhance the reading
experience for almost everyone. Unfortunately, the time table for making
this all happen, has been set back, and is very hard to predict. Please
come back often, to see how things are progressing. Thanks for your
patience, and understanding.
One of the most frequent responses
that I have received from readers of some my 'romance' poetry, was how
they 'could feel the words that they were reading',
almost as though 'they' were the subjects within my poems. I have received
some of those same types of comments from the readers of my book.
Hopefully, my poetry fans will be able to enjoy themselves through the
stories within my book.
If my book generates enough interest,
I may post my current work in progress, too.

my name is Steven Sheets, welcome to my site. I have been writing poetry for over 40 years, and I have
had numerous works published both online, and in local newspapers. My themes
range from poetry that deals with Religious themes written primarily for
those who have suffered the loss of a loved one, to Love and Romance with a
risqué edge to them, and I also write poetry that deals with the fun and
fantasy side of our emotions, and dreams. I have also recently begun writing
slightly erotic, and romantic short stories. I sincerely hope that anyone
who takes the time to read some of my works, come away with a sense of
enjoyment, and a desire to live life to the fullest. It is not my
intent to cause anyone to feel embarrassment, shame, or guilt of any kind
for what they have just read.
I try to live by one mantra,
and that is to make an honest effort to help all those whom I come
into contact with, to smile. By accomplishing this one simple task,
I am able to share the feeling that all is not so bad. Chances are
very good that those whom I can make smile, will most likely pass
that smile on to someone else. And so on, and so on.
It has been said that a
smile increases one's face value, and I believe this is true. No one
likes to be around someone who is constantly frowning, or
complaining about something. Evidence of this hypothesis, lies the
within the fact that we are more likely to do business with a person
that smiles, than with someone who doesn't smile, thus making a
simple smile an effective sales tool.
For those who have found
themselves in the middle of an informal crowd of people, I am sure
that you have noticed that more people are drawn to those who seem
to be laughing, smiling, and enjoying themselves, rather than to,
say a group of people who are frowning, and/or complaining. We all
want to have a 'good time', and a good time is equated with smiling,
and smiling is the first precursor to laughter.
There are enough reasons
in this world to cause us not to smile, without me adding to them.
So, with that in mind, I hope you can find something to smile about
as you read my poetry, and/or books.

A warning to those who might try to
post one, or more of my poems on their own sites, and claim to be the
author of same. I will seek to prosecute those who choose to infringe upon
my copyrights. Ever since I first built this site to share my poetry, several
individuals have tried to claim to be the authors of my poetry, either on
their own web sites, or on the web sites of others. I would appreciate
being notified by any of my loyal readers, if they should find evidence of
this as they surf around the net. I have posted some of my poems on other
sites, but they will show the author as being either Steve Sheets, or trulysexypoet. If you find one of my poems on a site, with somebody elses
name listed as the author, Please send me an email, with a link to, or the
address of the site doing the violating. Thank you very much for your help
in this matter.
