My eBook collection is FREE today

So I collected some poems into a book which you can download for free today and tomorrow on Amazon. That comes out to an average of $0/poem. Download, read, and leave a review please please please! A few stars or words can go a long way 🙂

(Or if you’re feeling particularly generous, buy it in paperback)

With humor, foresight, and rarely hidden effort, Phillip Knight Scott dares to ask important, existential questions in his first collection of poems. There may be few answers in PAINT THE LIVING, PLANT THE DEAD – indeed the whole thing is a bit absurd – but sometimes asking the questions can be enough. What is the point of life? Why is my hair gray? Where are my keys? These poems won’t answer these questions, but you’ll at least have something to read on your way to wherever you end up.


My first poetry collection is available now!

I am thrilled, delighted, terrified and other emotions to announce that my first collection of poetry is now available to purchase:

If you’ve enjoyed reading my poems here on my site, you will definitely enjoy this collection. Paint the living, plant the dead is a nice mix of poems I’ve posted here and a few that have never breathed fresh air. 

Seriously, folks. I am incredibly proud of this. Check it out!
