Last month was the second bookiversary (or “book birthday”, if you prefer words my laptop doesn’t tag with a red, squiggly line as being not real) for my historical fantasy/horror The Half Killed. Now, I had it all planned out in my head. I checked the calendar, made certain I still had plenty of time to put everything together, and then – WHOOSH – August 25th came and went and here we are halfway through September and I’m late to the party.
So! Here’s the good part: You get a chance to win one of two signed copies of The Half Killed (signed by me, sorry) that will be delivered to your door (not by me, sorry) IF you win. And how do you win? Well, let’s see…
To enter you must write a haiku. What’s a haiku? A poem that is 5-7-5, or five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third.
I don’t like haikus.
But I like to win free stuff.
What a quandary!!!
See? That easy. Post your haikus in the comment section below, and I will read through them all!
The contest will remain open until midnight (EST) October 12th.
Your haiku must stick to the 5-7-5 rule. Any shenanigans and your entry will be disqualified.
Your haiku must include the word bacon.
What was that?
Yes, it must include the word bacon. I might be lenient if you manage to reference or allude to bacon without actually using the word. Creativity counts!
I will be the only judge (possibly I’ll bring in my husband to help judge if I’m stymied.)
One winner will be selected randomly. The other winner will be purely my choice (Bias! Get your bias here!)
And with that, I wish you all good luck and happy haiku-ing!
