Publisher's Summary

The epic made simple. The miracle in the mundane.

One day, while browsing an antique store in Helena, Montana, photographer Tyler Knott Gregson stumbled upon a vintage Remington typewriter for sale. Standing up and using a page from a broken book he was buying for $2, he typed a poem without thinking, without planning, and without the ability to revise anything.

He fell in love.

Three years and almost 1,000 poems later, Tyler is now known as the creator of the Typewriter Series: a striking collection of poems typed onto found scraps of paper or created via blackout method. Chasers of the Light features some of his most insightful and beautifully worded pieces of work - poems that illuminate grand gestures and small glimpses, poems that celebrate the beauty of a life spent chasing the light.

Chased me to sleep.

Beautiful book. Just very very redundant and rather slow . Extremely talented romantic. I enjoyed it yet was neutral overall.

A must read / listen to, for the soul

Tyler writes magnificently and there's nothing like listening to the voice of any author give life to his own words, as he intended them when writing. This is a specifically passionate author and book. A must read for the soul.

Would have preferred a more seasoned narrator

I think it should have been done by someone with more narration experience. The poems were hit or miss.

This book changed my life outlook..

Would you listen to Chasers of the Light again? Why?

Yes. Already on my 4th time listening.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed the entire experience of love without boundaries or limits. His love is above the physical world..

What does Tyler Knott Gregson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Reading a book that an author reads himself is what makes this book even more heartfelt and special.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moment he first described seeing the typewriter and being so moved by it.

Any additional comments?

As a poet working on my first real love. I have published a short children's story but poetry is my love and behind disabled with not much time left at 43. Finishing my book is one of the things I get up for every morning. That you for lighting a fire in my soul again..
