So Long, Lonesome Place by Ashlee Craft – New Release

So Long, Lonesome by Ashlee Craft Book Cover

by Ashlee Craft

So Long, Lonesome Place is a collection of 63 poems about leaving behind that which does not serve you, & the search for the place that you’ve been seeking.

EXCERPT

it seems radical to me, all of this / & I’m so afraid I won’t be able to handle it (was any of it real anyways?) / but I do have to keep in mind, in all my moments of doubt & self-questioning, is how many countless others before me have done the same thing that I am doing now, & succeeded in doing so / how many others before me went off & forged their own pathways rather than following in the footsteps others had carved out before them & blindly listening to the instructions mumbled to them in poor faith / how many of them not only survived the falling out, but thrived because of it?

Fields of Destiny - 2016 CoverAvailable on iTunes
Available on Amazon Music

Ashlee Craft’s debut album, Fields of Destiny, is the first album to be published by Freedom Meadow Media. Originally released January 23, 2014. In regards to the meaning of the title, Ashlee says, “A ‘Field of Destiny’ is very similar to my concept of a Freedom Meadow – basically, a happy, safe place, where you can feel & be entirely yourself.” The album spans guitar-driven folk songs (Everything’s Gonna Be Alright, Great Day [Reprise]), lushly orchestrated ballads like (I’m Going Out to Be Free), Blues Rock (You’ll Never Own Me), peppy pop-rock (Shooting Star, The Strength of Hope), & upbeat indie pop-folk-rock (I Know You Can Make It, Great Day). Ashlee wrote, produced, recorded, sang, & played all the instruments on every track on the album.

Shipwrecked – Second Edition Now Available!

Shipwrecked by Ashlee Craft - Cover

The imaginative 16-year-old Tami Franks is thrilled to finally be going on her dream adventure of a three-day boat trip. She read Treasure Island several years ago, and ever since then, she’s spent her time reading survival guides, climbing trees, and swimming in the neighborhood pool in preparation for the adventures she might go on one day. When her parents finally agree to let her go on a trip with their charter captain friend, she is expecting the adventure of a lifetime. Tami gets much more than she bargains for when the boat sinks in the middle of the night, killing the captain and leaving her stranded in the middle of the ocean. She manages to swim to a nearby but uncharted island, where she must put her survival skills to use in order to have a chance at seeing her family again and saving her own life. Unsure of when, or if, she will be rescued, she must use her imagination, courage, and belief in herself in order to triumph.
