There is more…
On the top of a tower, guarded by dragons, the Watcher gazes out into the horizon. While the rest of his tribe work and toil, The Watcher questions what is beyond the walls. Determined to find out, he escapes his captors trying to find out just what is out there.
I cannot help but look and wonder
what’s out there?
I need to find out, see it with my own two eyes
all that stops me now is them
the dragons with their firesticks; their wings like angels
their countenance alien and unknown
they view us like toys and slaves
filling us with empty promises
never once coming through with them
I cannot live like this

What Joshua has to say about The Watcher:
JP: The Watcher is about a slave boy that kills his dragon masters and seeks out his freedom in a post apocalyptic land. Along the way, he discovers that #thereismore.
I wanted to know.
So I kept writing.
After the sixth or seventh poem I realized I had my poetry collection. I had to know where the story ended.
M|W: An epic fantasy poem is a unique style, is there any reason you chose this format for your book?
JP: Happy accident I guess? There was no master plan. It just felt like the right story. I always admired Calvin Miller. He did the Singer Trilogy and it’s a story I admired. I always wondered if I could do it.
I got a novel I’m currently working on that I’ve pitched. I also have a short story I’m working on for another publisher.
Finally, There’s a certain sequel that’s being written as we speak…;)
M|W: Anything else you want to share?
JP: Honestly, The Watcher has been an interesting journey. I had no expectations with this story. It’s been a pleasant surprise to start hearing responses from people. I got farther with it than I ever expected. I mean, who writes poetry right?
I am grateful and eagerly waiting where things go from here.
