Hard for me to believe, but this post was originally published FIVE years ago, in July 2014, before I had seen my first children’s poem in an anthology (“Lullaby & Kisses Sweet” (Abrams, 2015), to be precise). Now, this week, I have a poem in a brand-new anthology! I was watering the window boxes the other day and thought it might be nice to brush off this little tanka and share it again…I hope you like it!)

Ordering personalized signed copies online?
Oh, yes, you can!
Just click the cover of whichever book you want and send the good folks at MainStreet BookEnds in Warner, NH a note requesting the signature and to whom I should make it out to. (alternatively, you can log onto my website and do the same thing) They’ll contact me, I’ll stop by and sign it for you, and then they’ll ship it. Try doing that with those big online booksellers! (Plus, you’ll be helping to support local book-selling – and wouldn’t that make you feel good?)
