Goodreads Choice Awards – 2019

Greetings, my bookish friends!

Today I received an email letting me know about Goodreads “Best Book” Choice Awards 2019!

I think you may be able to tell where I’m going with this. 😉

Right … So, if you happen to have bought and read my book and think it’s pretty awesome, if you would be so kind, please visit *Goodreads’ site via the link above. Once there, search for the ‘Poetry’ category. You will then be directed to a list of nominated poetry books which you can vote for. However … at the very bottom of the page, you should find a little box where you have the option to “write in” a nomination. There, you can put in my book’s title, irregardless, and cast your vote! Then, please also share your nomination via Facebook and Twitter, to further help spread the word.

Truly, you’ll have my undying gratitude! And maybe there’ll be cookies. But I can’t promise anything. 😛

Thank-you!

*(you may need to sign-up for, or sign-in to your Goodreads account, in order to be able to see that little ‘write in’ box)

#pocketpoem

I’ve got a poem in my pocket,
Figuratively speaking that is.
Since I don’t go out much,
I won’t be sharing my words.

Except for here on social media,
Which spreads chat and memes,
To people all over the world.

So enjoy this poem for what it is,
And let your own mind run free.
Inspiration can strike anyone,
Anywhere, anytime.

So let it.
