End of Summer POETRY CONTEST

Have you been looking for a poetry contest? Kayla Ann will fix you up! Join in! This could be great fun! ❤

KaylaAnn

Hello Everyone, it’s time to do this again!

Are you a poet? Do you enjoy writing poems until your heart is sore or until it soars?

I’ve held a poetry contest once before and I absolutely adored it! It was a blast and I got to meet tons of amazing poets and bloggers. For my current followers, you may have noticed an influx of poetry appearing on my own blog lately. What can I say, it’s simply flowing out of me! Anyhow, I am so excited to hold an “End of Summer Poetry Contest.” Unlike my first Poetry Contest, this contest is themed!

*Please be sure to read all of the rules, otherwise your poem may not be eligible!*

Summer (1)

Fairies, Myths, & Magic: Book Review

I was thrilled that Diana featured me on her blog, Myths of the Mirror. (Named after a favorite book of mine) Please stop by and say hello. Don’t forget my new book, Fairies, Myths, & Magic ~ A Summer Celebration is on sale for $.99 Kindle, and $5.99 for the paperback through this summer. Hugs on the wing! ❤

Myths of the Mirror

Global Amazon Link

Colleen Chesebro has a new book of poetry and short stories. The tagline is “A Summer Celebration” and how perfect that it was released on the summer solstice. I snapped it up and read it while the sun lollygagged overhead.  Rather than quiz Colleen, I asked her if I could share my favorite short story from the book, and she agreed. Her gorgeous story “The Pond” struck a deep chord, as if she’d written it just for me. My review for the collection follows. ❤

The Pond

by Colleen Chesebro

My journey brings me to a nearby prairie slough where prescient reflections shimmer under the summer sun. Today, I am in pursuit of mythical enlightenment. You know, the kind where magic resonates in the shriek of a hawk and in the howling yips from the coyote pups that play on the sandy shore under a full moon…
