Happy Halloween!

Black cats,
Screeching bats,
Children in disguise running door-to-door
Knocking "rat-a-tat-tat!"

Ghosts and ghouls rise and rampage
While pirates growl and pillage-
Vampires bare their fangs
and lie about their age!

The Witch dances and cackles
As the giant bonfire crackles-
"Tonight is Halloween,
'tis plain to see
Why we're all acting so strange!
The shrouds of death are thin
and delightful magic
Brings about great change!
So eat your candy and sleep well tonight,
As our friends go to arrange a real
Halloween fright!"

- "Halloween" is on page 76 from ROTCT

"Scrambled Egg: Poems and Other Confessions" now on Amazon!

Scrambled Egg: Poems and Other Confessions

Click on the link above to find my new book over at Amazon. It never gets old seeing your personal creation listed on the largest online store in the world.

Been feeling the need to sequester myself in a lone room somewhere and write. I feel like I have lots of things I want to say, but no time to actually set aside for it. Perhaps that is an option for my vacation...perhaps I can convince some loved ones to give me a room of my own to hole up in for a night and burn a hole through my notebook with my pen.

Even though you can buy my book at Amazon, I want to strongly recommend that you buy it directly from the publisher, Lulu.com. You will be supporting me better as a writer and supporting my future work. Every penny counts and I want to earn it by doing what I love most. So even though it is more widely available now, get it from the source.

My 1000th viewer!

I am happy to announce that at 3:24pm today, Erika Lynn was my 1000th visitor to the Egg today! You rock girl, I love you :)

Roots of the Cypress Tree: Second Edition

In acknowledgment of my blog's impending 1000 views, I decided to create a second edition of my first book, Roots of the Cypress Tree. I never was completely satisfied with the font I chose, so I went back and cleaned it up and now it looks much better. Everything else is mostly the same...it is still in hardcover, same cover art (though the text has been updated) and very few changes were made to the poems themselves. So for those who already own a copy of the first edition, congrats to you! It is now a collector's item.

I hope that those of you who haven't yet added ROTCT to your bookshelf, that you will do so now. I am proud of the changes I have made. Oh, and enjoy a 25% discount from the original price of $34.95 when you order from Lulu.com!
