Sucha Deal Weekend A Haiku Perspective 2015

This is the book that started it all, A Haiku Perspective 2015 is my very first book of Haiku Poetry.

Not only was I thoroughly enchanted with finding I enjoyed writing haiku, I also found I enjoyed the process of putting haiku poetry books together. So, here in the final weekend of National Poetry Month, I am offering A Haiku Perspective 2015 for that ever exciting, .99 Kindle Countdown price. This deal will run from Friday, April 28th 11:00am EDT through Monday, May 1st 11:00am EDT.

I had a blast choosing the photo for the cover. This is a Bird Fairy that my sister was hired to sculpt. I took a few pictures before she delivered it to its new owner and thought it would make an intriguing cover photo. The responses have varied from wary to delighted.

Giving credit where credit is due, I have to thank fellow blogger/author Ronovan Hester for his weekly haiku challenges. This is what got me started writing haiku. Once I gave in and joined his merry band of participants, I was hooked!  His two-word prompts offered us the opportunity to be creative.  I have to say, I wasn’t always classy:

Think & Fresh

When trying to make salads

Think I will buy fresh

  I still participate in those challenges, to perhaps I’ll see you there one day.

 Thank you, for participating in my celebration of National Poetry Month 2017! Thank you for gifting yourself and others A Haiku Perspective 2015 and my other books.

It Was Twenty Years Ago…

It was twenty years ago… today? Well this month actually. Twenty years ago The Academy of American Poets inaugurated this month long celebration to honor poetry’s place in our culture. And when you visit their website, you’ll find a myriad of ways to join in the festivities. People are being encouraged to write, read, share and publish their poetry as well as to honor other poets with letters, cards and other forms of communication. Check it out and join in the party!


Of course many a poet lives this celebration every day of their lives, they write, write and write even more poetry until they are surrounded by a pile of offerings. Some blog their efforts, many share in performances such as poetry slams and poets like myself, well we PUBLISH BOOKS!

 TA-DA!  In honor of National Poetry Month, I announce the release of my latest book,  A Haiku Perspective 2016  A_Haiku_Perspective__Cover_for_Kindle

I made this book available in print as well as in Kindle format so however you need to read, you can feed that appetite

This is the follow-up to my A Haiku Perspective 2015, which was published in Oct. of 2015. Much like its predecessor, A Haiku Perspective 2016 has two sections, one of my everyday haiku and the second, the haiku I submitted to the Weekly Haiku Challenge hosted by http://www.ronovanwrites.wordpress.com

A Haiku Perspective

All my life, writing has been my passion.  My favorite way to express this passion has been through poetry, so having the opportunity to share my poetry through published books, is like a dream come true.

I invite you to explore my contribution to this year’s National Poetry Month, share it and by all means, be so kind as to leave a review to let the next explorer know what you think.

I will be posting something every Monday in April, announcing how I am choosing to celebrate National Poetry Month, so be sure to FOLLOW my BLOG. Let me know what it is YOU are doing, so we can spread the love of poetry all over the world.
