BIG POETRY GIVEAWAY (inter)National Poetry Month 2015 #giveaway


(inter)National Poetry Month
April  2015

hello,  poetry lovers!  have i got a treat for you!  i’m participating in the sixth annual  BIG POETRY GIVEAWAY   in celebration of  (inter)National Poetry Month 2015.  the giveaway is being curated this year by  Kelli Russell Agodon, the founder of BIG POETRY GIVEAWAY,  at her blog  Book of  Kells  HERE.  i will be giving away two books of  poetry.  anywhere in the world.

the first book  i am going to give away is the latest book  “The Cherub of  Pierzanie Prison and other poems”  by  Shay Caroline Simmons  aka  Fireblossom,  who is one of  the most original and brilliant poets alive.  you can find Shay Caroline aka Fireblossom at  ‘Shay’s Word Garden

“From tender love poems to the revolutionary red army,  the poems in this book will take you places you might not expect.  Meet a wampus cat,  a logician,  a demented realtor,  the sisters of  the Creolan mission,  the childhood friend of a now-famous star and even a group of down at the heels Roman gods.”

the second book   i’m going to give away is titled  “Gemini/Scorpio/Capricorn:  three American women poets”  by Shay Caroline Simmons,  Kelli Simson  and Joy Ann Jones.

“A rippling triple vision through the heart’s crystal,  both light and dark;  riddles of needles and glass,  demons and gypsies,  love for men,  love for other women,  love for our children,  love that damns and love that redeems,  all of these motifs and more twine like scarlet threads through a little black dress in this triad of women building alternate universes with words.”

you can find these truly unique and amazing poets at their poetry blogs,  which i consider to be the top three in the blogosphere ~
Shay Caroline aka Fireblossom  blogs at  ‘Shay’s Word Garden
Kelli Simson aka Mama Zen blogs her poetry at  ‘another damn poetry blog
Joy Ann Jones aka hedgewitch blogs at  ‘Verse Escape

bonus!  i’m giving away four more books in the e-book versions ~ i’m going to give away the e-book versions of  “100 Best-Loved Poems“  and  “The Road Not Taken and Other Poems  [Illustrated]”  by Robert Frost and  “Leaves of  Grass  [Illustrated]”  by Walt Whitman  and  “Love Poem Collection – The Greatest Love Poems and Quotes of  All Time.”
