Rational poetry freebie for the holidays

My writing partner Carolyn Howard-Johnson and I figure nothing is more meaningful at any holiday than a poem—a real poem, not sing-songy impersonal verse from the shelves of card shops. We also noticed that many folks remember people they forgot when it may be too late. To remedy that, we are offering you our "rational" Christmas chapbook. Enter the KDP Select free e-book feature. All you do is go to (or click on the cover to the left) on Dec. 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 and click.

Anyone can send a copy free to anyone they'd like to have a thoughtful—and fast—Christmas gift with a click of a mouse (no not the same mouse that's in "The Night Before Christmas" poem). The booklet Blooming Red: Christmas Poetry for the Rational was honored by the Military Writers Society of America and USA Book News award. It's a mini gift and greeting card in one!

Blooming Red includes my somewhat science-inspired and Carolyn’s nostalgic poetry. It also includes some humorous poems for fair measure and has artist Vicki Thomas' gorgeous painting on the cover. For more of Vicki's work, you can go to

I do hope you'll take the opportunity to share around a little poetry this year, to wish all of your friends and colleagues a happy poetic and meaningful holiday.
