Buy X, get Y FREE!

I learned recently that there are still some free copies left to give away as part of Richard C. Owen's "buy X, get Y free" deal at RCOwen.com. Buy a copy of my Meet the Author book Before It Wriggles Away, and you'll get a free copy of Declaration of Interdependence sent to you with your order. Take a look here!

Thank you, Fellow Bloggers!

The poetry universe is rich in talented bloggers. I am thrilled that three of the best--Elaine Magliaro (Wild Rose Reader), Julie Larios (The Drift Record), and Sylvia Vardell (Poetry for Children) have embraced Declaration of Interdependence and written wonderful reviews of it.

Discussion Question #5: Possible Promises

Write a list of 10 possible things that you would want to do if you were president . . . and share one of those wonderful ideas here. Sometimes the line between possible and impossible is blurred--a millimeter (or a minute or a vote) can separate a silly dream from a very real accomplishment. If you're not sure whether your promise would be "possible" or "impossible," list it here--why not dream big?

Update [Oct 2012]: If you think "No Homework" is an impossible presidential promise, think again. French President Francois Hollande just proposed this very thing as part of his redesign of the French education system. If our leaders did this in the U.S., I think a lot of kids (and parents and teachers) would say: "Merci!"
