Giveaway Winner

I would like to thank everyone who signed up for my newsletter and giveaway contest. I will send out monthly updates with free stuff and any other giveaways in the future. There is a free eBook download everyone month on the last Friday and I would appreciate honest reviews from anyone who has downloaded my work. This might be part of the next giveaway, I haven’t decided. And the moment you’ve waited for…the winner of the giveaway is Jennifer C. The winner will be contacted shortly, and the signed paperback copy will arrive in the mail within the next few weeks.

If you did not win, there will be other giveaways and since you signed up for the newsletter, you will be informed before everyone else. Congratulations again to the winner! In less happy news, I submitted my collection of poetry to the Pulitzer Prize. Winners and finalists were announced yesterday, and I was not among them. I can still say I tried and will continue writing poetry. Unfortunately, I was sidetracked by so many things that I was not able to writer one poem every day in the month of April. Perhaps I’ll get it done next year.

I’ve decided to continue with posting poetry twice a week from this month forward. It keeps content on my site fresh and so far, folks have really enjoyed it. To receive access to my unpublished poetry, you can subscribe to my Patreaon Page for only $1 a month and receive new content at least once a week. You’ll also be supporting an indie author and you’ll receive my undying gratitude. And wouldn’t that make you feel special? It certainly will. Thanks again to everyone who signed up for the newsletter and another congratulations to the winner.

Poetry Monday: Han and Sage

An interesting pair they were
The saguaro cactus and the Gila monster
An odd couple like no other
But they met every week at the Tarantula Tavern
The saguaro’s name was Sage
She was bubbly and friendly
And gave everyone hugs
The monster’s name was Han
The quiet type and he sat
With his back to the wall
Han spoke to no one
As he waited with a drink
But would come animated and alive
In conversations with Sage
She was friendly and affectionate
Han hated everything
The pair would talk for hours
And despite his grumpy appearance
Han enjoyed his time with Sage
At the Tarantula Tavern in Tucson
