Big Poetry Giveaway, Sign Up Here!

42ยบ ~ the weather has been cold, chilly, rainy, and generally frumpy for the past week, but we should see a return to spring sun and warmth starting tomorrow (which is also opening day for the Cubbies!)



Many thanks to Kelli for organizing the National Poetry Month Book Giveaway. Here's the deal, on May 1, I'll randomly select two winners from the comments left on this post. All you have to do is leave a comment stating you want to be considered in the giveaway. If you are a participating poet, feel free to add a link to your post.

I'll ship anywhere in the world for FREE.

The deadline to leave a comment is April 30th. I do have comment moderation turned on due to a bad spam incident. However, I will post all comments that are legit. If yours doesn't show up within a day of posting, feel free to email me at sandy dot 40 dot longhorn at gmail dot com and query.

On May 1st, I'll choose a winner using a random number generator to select the comments that win. If you don't have a blog profile, be sure to leave your email address or another way to contact you in your comment.

The books I'm giving away are: my own, Blood Almanac, and Cinema Muto by Jesse Lee Kercheval.


Blood Almanac
Anhinga Press, 2006












Cinema Muto
Jesse Lee Kercheval
Southern Illinois University Press, 2009

I Quintilian B. Nasy, of sound mind and body, would like to be entered into the Big Poetry Giveaway. Since I already have your book, if I win, I'll just give it to a friend.

Likewise, I'd love to be entered. I have and love Blood Almanac, so if I win you could give it to a runner up!

Thanks Sandy.

My poetry collection is virtually non-existent, having just been started this year, so I'd love to win either book. (If I had to choose, I'd go with Blood Almanac.)
