Sucha Deal Weekend A Haiku Perspective 2016

Poetry is something that is in my head 24/7. I think, dream and speak in poetry. Not just any poetry mind you, generally I’m all about haiku!  Last year, I debuted a book of haiku in honor of National Poetry Month, so I figured I would share A Haiku Perspective 2016 this weekend to continue the celebration.  From Friday, April 21st 11:00am EDT through Monday, April 24th 11:00am EDT, you can enjoy a .99 Kindle Countdown deal on this book.

I filled this book with haiku written for blogs posts, contests and challenges.  There is even poetry that only those who have this book have ever seen. One of my favorites is called: Thanks Dad

The phone rang just now

From hundreds of miles away

He just got the book

Loves the duck picture

You know, it just spoke to him

He said, keep writing

 Why this is special, is because he had just gotten his hard copy of PhoKu and was so happy with it that he wanted me to know he was proud.  So, I  wrote a haiku about that call and included it in THIS book.

 I got another phone call when he got his copy of A Haiku Perspective 2016. And he takes the books with him when he goes to town and shows everyone how he inspires poetry.  What a guy…  Thanks, Dad!

 And thank YOU for enjoying my books!  You never know who could be inspired with a copy of A Haiku Perspective 2016, even you!

International Haiku Poetry Day 2017

This IS April 17th and that means I am in my glory!  Why? Because this is International Haiku Poetry Day!!  (woot woot) Now, this is National Poetry Month (all April long) and Int’l Haiku Poetry Day, so I have combined them and declared Int’l Haiku Poetry Month-Day…  (a woman’s prerogative)

https://www.thehaikufoundation.org/international-haiku-poetry-day/

If ever there was a poetry format I have embraced with every fiber of my being, it IS Haiku. Honestly, I will hear a phrase I like in my head and immediately I will hold up my left hand and use my right index finger to count out the syllables. If it doesn’t work out, I keep re-writing until it does.  Some say it’s a curse but I say it’s FUN!!

 So, what am I doing to celebrate? I have released my latest collection of Haiku, A Haiku Perspective 2017 on Kindle.  That’s right, you can visit my Author Central Page and find both the paperback (if you are so inclined) as well as the Kindle version.  I am most excited to have this book available in both formats as I know there are those who would rather have an eBook.  Me? I actually prefer to hold a paperback in my hands. There’s something intoxicating about paper and ink. (must be those memories of mimeograph machines)

Whatever you are doing to celebrate… do it in 5-7-5 style

Join in on the fun

Express yourself in haiku

Just because you can

A Glowing Review for A Haiku Perspective 2016

Well, I am gobsmacked!  Whilst helping someone else figure out some housekeeping details on Amazon, I found an absolutely glowing, 5-star review for my book, A Haiku Perspective 2016.  In fact, it is the very FIRST REVIEW for this book!  The author of the review was listed merely as Verified Purchaser and was dated December 29, 2016.

I am honored (blushing actually) If you only knew how much I love writing and creating books…  The eloquent manner in which the review was composed, made ME want to go read my own book…

Thank you, to whomever you are, for making my day and giving others the encouragement to buy and read this book!

Love, Annette Rochelle

Place yourself into

Night’s precious comfort and care

Find your respite sweet

Day has since faded

Taking all you needn’t keep

Fresh start tomorrow
