Lyrical Gymnastics by Tyockin Bethell

Tyockin Bethell, a talented Bahamian writer, is releasing his first book on Saturday, July 29th, 2017. Lyrical Gymnastics: Probation of the Mind contains philosophical quotations intended to free the mind.

Bethell believes that people tend to think themselves into boxes and become prisoners of the mind. The purpose of the compilation is to paint an image in people’s minds and have them contemplate it.  He hopes that his work inspires other aspiring writers to pursue their passion and release their material.

Lyrical Gymnastics: Probation of the Mind will be available for purchase at Easy Life in Palm Dale as well as on Amazon (paperback or Kindle). Pirate’s Republic is hosting the release party on July 29th, 2017. Star 106 encourages you to support Tyockin Bethell, an up and coming, Bahamian author.
