Happy April Fool’s Day!

April is National Poetry Month, and just like last year, I am turning my blog over to poetry. I’m not kidding you, but this teen fiction author will be posting nothing but poetry on this blog for the next 30 days. But!–this year I have a challenge for you…


THE CHALLENGE (A.K.A. The Contest)

From now until April 30th at 12:00 (EST), I will be giving away two autographed copies of Nothing but Trouble after Midnight to the individuals who leave the most daily comments. Your comments will be answers to the “Daily Response.” Sometimes I will ask you a simple question about poetry, usually matters of opinion, and every once in a while, I will challenge you to try your hand at a poem. (Find today’s “Daily Response” at the bottom of this post.)

Contest Guidelines:

  • Leave only one comment on each blog post, and therefore, with thirty days in April, there will be a maximum of thirty entries per person. (In case of a tie, the person who commented first wins.)
  • Leave a comment with your name. If you want to comment under a pseudonym, then email me at kimberlyblackadar@yahoo.com. That way I can contact you if you win.
