Free Poetry Books! Last Chance!

Thank you, everyone, for participating in my contest. I will start counting all of the entries tomorrow. You have just today to Like, Share or Retweet any of the posts from 4/1-5/2 for the contest entries. So, get those entries in!

I am looking at 6 prizes, and I am open to giving away more if we get a great final push.

Like, Share (2 entries), Retweet (2 entries), PressThis (2 entries). One more day!

Thank you for the support!

Two Days Left In The Contest!

Free books of poetry! Hey, you don’t see that often, do you? Here at the blog, I am celebrating poetry, not only by offering the poetry boot camp and providing excerpts of my own poetry from my latest book, Weathered Fragments, Weathered Souls,
I would also like to share the gift of poetry.

So, I am giving away one signed copy of both of my books, plus other poetry books I have enjoyed. Free. What is the catch? This is a contest, so I can’t give books to everyone (would love to, if I could), but I will do a drawing to determine who will get the books. I will have at least 3 prize books, but if there is enough participating, I will add more.

How do I enter, you ask? Easy.

#1 Like any posts from this month (April). This includes the blog, Facebook, and Twitter.

#2 Double entries if you Share, Retweet, or Press This (via WordPress).

Winners chosen around the first of May. Winners will be posted and notified. You have 7 days to claim before I redraw.

Sound good!

Let’s celebrate poetry!
