Good afternoon, all. As many of you know, I have spent the last two weeks in bed with pancreatitis. During this time I have received so many well wishes from you and the writing and poetry community as a whole. I want to thank all of you for your kind words and warm thoughts. You are all absolutely amazing.
While I was away, I had a lot of time to read (book reviews coming in the near future) and write some amazing poetry (daily posts to follow).
I also had a lot of time to think about how I would repay all of your kind words and continual support. I decided the best way to say thank you is to pay it forward.
My many days of reading has inspired me to do a book give away. Here is how it will work. Every month, I will give a poetry book away to one of my readers, and all you have to do to qualify is comment which book from the list you would like and what inspires you about that book. At the end of each month I will review the comments and choose one viewer to receive their choice of book. That’s it! A simple comment and you could find a new book arriving in your mailbox in a few weeks.
For now, all of the books will be from the wonderful collections over at Animal Heart Press. In the future, I may add additional books. It just depends on how exited you all are about the competition.
This will be an ongoing contest with a new winner picked each month. I will announce the winners in a post during the first week of every new month. You can comment as many times as you want on any of my posts throughout the month.
So, let’s get this party started. Hop over to the Animal Heart Press bookstore and have a look at your choices. Then leave me a comment with the name and why it inspired you. On August 31, 2020, I will pick the first winner. The winner will be announced between September 1 and September 7, 2020.
Rules of entry for the monthly contest. Entrant must comment with their favorite book and the inspiration for choosing this book. Multiple entries are accepted and all entries will be considered. MJS will reach out to winners for pertinent information for delivery of winners prize.
While I am currently affiliated with Animal Heart Press, this contest is a private contest held by Mary Jaimes-Serrano that is not run by the press in any way. All actions are of my own creation and I will receive no reimbursement nor contributions from AHP for this giveaway.
