MILLTOWN, N.J. — Author William Koch Jr. pours his emotions and experiences through captivating poems in the nationwide release of his new book, “Oh Conscience.” Paperback copies of his book will be released this week while hardbacks will be available in October.
“Oh Conscience” is Koch’s third book in the versification of emotions and pride. The author from Milltown, New Jersey, continues to reveal the path that one family faces every day after tragic events and overwhelming outcomes befall them. A family that becomes tested in faith and friendship, and in relationships and beliefs, carries forward with the guidance of Christ and the strength that the Lord has placed in their individual consciences — and Koch reveals such through his poetry.
The Koch family has suffered through a lot — from tragic consequences to the unbearable stress brought by the world — that, at times, it felt like life was spiraling out of control. Yet the author recalls memories, relives events and rants with his words that are filled with emotion, compassion, sarcasm and wit. Koch paints a picture with letters that inspire, transpire and set emotions on fire. “Oh Conscience” makes the reader realize that no path is impossible to venture when he or she carries the light and guidance of Christ.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Koch comes from a blue-collar family background, with Christian and American values as food for the mind and soul. He has raised three children with his wife, Christine. His inspiring, new poetry book is his way of dealing with the tragic losses of his son, Steven, and his daughter, Lynne, who are both casualties of war.
