It started with a hand printed book of junior high school love poetry. I went on to create an award-winning children’s activity book without even trying. So I decided it was time to write and publish MORE books. Here they are. ENJOY and thank you for BUYING them, I only publish that which I would buy myself! www.amazon.com/author/annetterochelleaben

Welcome to National Poetry Month – No Foolin’

April is National Poetry Month

All month long, we are encouraged to write poetry, read poetry, share it, perform it and celebrate the lives of poets you may know or not know!

The Academy of American Poets has a website filled with ideas, scheduled events and resources for teachers to foster an enthusiasm for poetry!

If you know a poet, check out some of their books…Oh, if you are reading this, you DO know a poet.  My books can be found through my Author Central Page Nine of the twelve books I have available are strictly poetry books. And my most recent book, A Haiku Perspective 2018 is #1 Hot New Release in Japanese Poetry – Haiku on Amazon Kindle.

Thank  you to all who appreciate the work of poets. Thank you to all who celebrate life through the writing of poetry. Thank you to all who believe in the power of words to lift the spirit and spark the imagination.

This is OUR MONTH!

Go You Gets a New Fan

 I follow the blog of opera singer, Charlotte Hoather. Her blog is always filled with such joy. This young woman has a career in performing that is blossoming, As she carves out her place in history, she takes us along for the ride.

 So, I am reading Today’s Post and guess what I see at the close? THIS!

Wow, I mean WOW!  I knew she had purchased the book for she told me, in a private message, how much she enjoyed it. I never expected this beautiful support, via her blog. I am touched.

I did not ask her permission to lift this photo, so I hope I am forgiven…

Thank you, Miss. Charlotte. If I ever find myself on your side of the pond, I would be honored to autograph it for you.

 Thank you to everyone who purchases My Books and tells even one other person that they recommend them. Sure, most people who write and publish books would love to put the phrase, Best Selling Author next to their names and be able to live off of the royalties. However, it is something like this that makes your day in a way that reminds you of why write and publish in the first place.

 

Honoring a Woman with a New Book

In honor of the birth anniversary of my sister, Lorraine Parent, I am announcing the paperback release of my new book:

Why choose today? Because Lorraine drew the COVER ART!  Yes, my amazingly talented sister gave me permission to use this drawing and I wanted to celebrate her gift as well as the gift of her life at the same time. Thanks Sis!

 A Haiku Perspective 2018 is a year of my life, presented through poetic observations. While it’s not your mother’s Haiku, each poem is laid out a traditional haiku format of 17 syllables spread out over 3 lines. Even if the poem is longer than 3 lines, it still maintains the 5-7-5 syllable line count for every 3 lines.

Those who have already seen this book, tell me they laughed, they cried and they went back and read certain pages over again just because. It makes me feel good to know that what I felt translated to the words and that the emotion with which each piece was created was relatable.

 What more could a poet ask for??  Head over to my Author Central Page and buy my book!  (gee, I guess I didn’t put that in the form of a question, sorry)  Seriously, this is my 12 self-published book and I am thrilled to add it to the family!

We invite to come by for cake and ice cream (chocolate of course) And we invite you to pick up your very own copy of A Haiku Perspective 2018
