Vol 1.

The first volume of A Journal for Damned Lovers is a collection of prose that documents the fledgling footsteps of a failed lover-come-writer. Beginning with the end of romance and leading to the discovery that a desire to write is not only a healing mechanism but a way of embracing a fearful new future, β€˜Damned Lovers is both an attempt by the author to reclaim his past and to explore the realms of love and loss amidst a landscape of faded photographs, hangovers, and a sense of melancholy both beautiful and numbing.

Vol 2.

The second collection of prose by S. K. Nicholas continues the fledgling footsteps of a writer attempting to build a new future armed with a handful of words and a headful of visions. Each story presented here is a doorway to a bubble of time and space, home to romance, drunken despair, and the madness that comes from dedicating oneself to a life of writing. There are moments of tenderness and beauty, and those of violence and frustration, each one as necessary as the other. This journey is a dance between light and dark, with love, in all of its many forms, the driving force of both.

Vol 3.

This third and final volume of A Journal for Damned Lovers is a collection of prose continuing the footsteps of a fledgling writer. From tender glimpses of lovers against the world to the solitary musings of a man falling off the edge, the stories contained within these pages are both love letters to the past and odes to times that so often go overlooked. They detail an artist not only trying to carve out their vision, but one willing to risk their mind to see it through to completion. These stories are born out of the search for identity, the need for faith, and the myriad ways of romance.

  1. I saw Lost Highway and Twin Peaks in your goodreads list. I’ve enjoyed watching all David Lynch movies except The Elephant Man. I heartily congratulate you on your publications and wish for your great success, abundance and love in days to come. Have a great day ahead πŸ™‚

  2. I’m reading the first journal and so far Stay Beautiful as struck a nerve, in a good way. You said everything I’ve been thinking over the last 10 years. The standard blueprint is beyond boring and it really gets next to me that people don’t step out for fearing failure or actually achieving because that means more responsibility is placed at their feet. I don’t know anyone, especially on my job who wants that. Well, written S.K.

    • Thank you, my friend! I remember writing Stay Beautiful, and how at the time it felt so good to be able to see things for how they were, and to realise I didn’t want to be part of a life that couldn’t allow me to be who I wanted to be. In many ways I’ve never looked back since that day, and it touches me in so many ways knowing you feel the same way.
