As mentioned below, I am the Author-in-Residence at ReaderKidZ this month, a poet for National Poetry Month. Thanks, ReaderKidZ. It's a privilege!
Here are the posts so far:
"What's Your Story?" About my childhood as a budding poet/writer
"A Letter to Readers" About the beach and how it inspired this book
Water Sings Blue Giveaway The announcement at ReaderKidz
FAQs: How Can I Help My Child Enjoy Poetry A very nice guide by Jeannette of ReaderKidz
ReaderkidZ has asked my publisher to give away a copy of Water Sings Blue in connection with their posts, and the folks at Chronicle have kindly agreed. However, my site is better equipped to host a giveaway, so we're doing it here.
Since we're celebrating poetry this month, you can qualify for the giveaway by writing a haiku about an ocean animal or some other maritime topic (like boats) and leaving it in the comments. The winner's name will be drawn and announced at the end of April. Please also make sure you are easy to get in touch with by leaving contact info in your comment or at least by checking back.
Thanks again, ReaderKidZ and Chronicle!
