In celebration of National Poetry Month, I am offering the Kindle version of my first haiku/picturebook, PhoKu -visual perspective haiku for less than a dollar! Friday, April 7th 11:00am EDT – Monday April 10th 11:00am EDT, you can download this book for .99
As I describe the term PhoKu, in the book itself:
Explain what we see
Attach words to the pictures
We create PhoKu
The majority of pictures in this book are those I took at a nearby park. I fell in love with the ducks, geese and the scenery in which they danced, walked, flew and relaxed. I have read them some of the haiku from the book and I feel they are pleased…
Enjoy! And remember, you can gift this book to someone when you place your Kindle order. What a nice thing for you to do.

Every year, April 10th is known as Encourage a Young Writer Day. What a wonderful way to cultivate creativity. I decided to post this a couple days early to give people the chance to arrange something for the young writers they may know.
You can gift a young person a journal, some pens and a bookmark.
You can write a letter of support and send it to a young person to bolster their confidence.
You could host an afternoon of writing fun with a small group of young writers. Bringing them together for writing exercises and sharing of their works.
You could mentor a young person through a specific project such as poem, short story or even a book.
Whatever you choose to do, be sure to let the young writers in your life know that there are no limits as to where their writing can take them.
