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!
I woke up to the FIRST REVIEW and found this:
With a beautiful 5 Star Review on top of it all!
I was going to wait to until tomorrow to announce that the Kindle version of my latest book was available, but this NEWS could not wait!
A Haiku Perspective 2018
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.
