By Michelle C. Jordan on May 26, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
These Ties contain poetry and stories that are thought provoking and genuine...Each narrative contains views from the point of view of a teller, who appears to have decided, to stop circling on life's carousel and focus on more of the fundamentals...love, self awareness, self fulfillment, self identity, the velvet bonds between parent and child...

My favorite is Merlot and the Moon, which the speaker appears to be an impassioned young man still wrapped in the arms of first love...with all the vibrant, exuberance of one bent on waiting, and remembering the girl who inhabits his dreams;

THESE TIES is a lush and bountiful banquet for the romantic soul....

and if you aren't that romantic...well, give it a try and maybe it will help:)

A thoughtful, poignant work by a talented and deep-thinking up and coming author. Bortz is a man to keep an eye on-he has a long and excellent career ahead of him.

These Ties is a wonderful book of poems with vivid and intricate descriptions of life as it unfolds. It resonates with reality and offers a glimpse into life from the mind of a poet, capturing images otherwise hidden by busy lives. I highly recommend it for moments of quiet reflection with a cup of tea. Nicely done William.

Format: Paperback
This book is no better than creative pieces that I have read and critiqued in introductory college writing courses that were written by students that just had to fulfill a college writing requirement. This is what internet and social media has gifted us: A way for anyone, or Everyman, if you will a way to publish whatever they want. This type of thing is almost a shame to the great authors that came before the internet was invented and actually had to bust their asses to be published or recognized. Will seems to have a start to be a writer but this book drifts from one point to another. This book is filled with obvious nods to the hipster new age romantic theme and tired cliche analogies. I honestly can't see how this book hit publication. But, upon further review of the publisher it is easy: they publish anyone. Hopefully Will spends some time in a college classroom perfecting his technique and learning because while this is a good start I have read pieces by college freshman with a true knack and natural ability far better than this. Not many people are able to be good right out of the gate at what they want to do. Will is not one of them.
