2011 Holiday Poetry Sale
The sale is now CLOSED.  Thank you all for your support, and I wish you happy holidays.

A silver lantern glazed with cobalt glass panes sends a flickering blue light over the snow ...

Welcome to the 2011 Holiday Poetry Sale! Today through Friday, December 16, my remaining fishbowl poems from 2011 are half price.  Especially check out the epics; the highest one is down to $48.25, so if you've been yearning for an epic of your very own, now's the time!  For those of you with just a few dollars to spend, there are a few poems at $2.50 and plenty at $5.  The linkback poem "Beggars' Night" is still open, so if you link to the Holiday Poetry Sale, you can reveal a verse of that; just remember to tell me what you did.

If you want to buy a poem as a gift for someone, let me know; I can dedicate it to anyone you wish.  Both the giver and the recipient count as donors for the purpose of reading the perk-posts, and both get nonexclusive reprint rights.  That means if you buy a poem for someone else, you can post it on your blog or website for them, or they can post it on theirs, in addition to it appearing here.

Here is a PayPal button for your convenience, or you may contact me for other payment options.  (I'm just offering prewritten poetry this time, not scrapbook pages, because I expect to be unavailable for part of the month.)  Please specify which poem(s) you want and the SALE price.


The following poems are left over from fishbowls throughout 2011 (plus December 2010).  If you want to see the thumbnail descriptions, click the theme links.  If you don't see a poem that you remember fondly, it may have been submitted to another market, but you can ask me to double-check.  The same applies to poems from previous years; just ask if you want one.  Special thanks to marina_bonomi for helping me collate the list of available poems.
