In case you missed the one I wrote for National Poetry Day, it was a limerick that went something like this:
"My novel's main character is Relic,
Who's an actor, not unlike Tom Selleck.
He flips on Halloween.
Its reviews say it's keen,
This has been my lame effort to sell it."
(Here's the link if you want to buy it:
But now I've been thinking of other poetic pitches. Here's one for The Odic Touch, with apologies to The Miser Brothers, whose song was originally written by Maury Laws and Jules Bass for the 1974 Rankin-Bass stop-motion animated special The Year Without A Santa Claus:
"I'm Mr. Roy Hudson, I like to create.
My first book's cheap on Smashwords,
With coupon BP38A!
It's about psychic vampires, whomever they clutch
Weaken in The Odic Touch.
99c? Not too much!"
(Buy it for $0.99 with the above coupon code, BP38A, at https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/82282 )
And since Halloween Tales is also on sale... and features a Halloween poem inside, here's a sales-pitch Haiku:
"Read Halloween Tales
for a frightfully good time!
...And even a rhyme."
(You can get Halloween Tales, also for 99c with coupon code JC93U, here: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/96714 )
That's it for now... I had previously written a poem for the Now, Dasher saga, but it's too early for Christmas. We have to get past Halloween first! I hope you enjoyed reading these poems (not the same thing as ads, mind you) as much as I enjoyed writing them!
