Half-Price Poetry Sale: Fledgling Grace
The half-price poetry sale has SOLD OUT!  Thank you all for your enthusiasm and support.

This week the poetry of Fledgling Grace is on sale for half-price, since the November 6, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl made the $300 goal.  This fantasy series touches on themes of transformation, diversity, faith, morality, identity, and making the world a better place.  

Note that the series has a chronological flow as new aspects are discovered.  Poems that really require sequential revelation are locked until the prerequisites get published.  Otherwise they're available, but if you're waffling over which to pick, it's usually to your advantage to sponsor the earlier poetry first.  Most of the individual poems can stand alone -- I started with almost the last one, because "The Wingdresser's Kitchen" is near the end.  You can read more about Fledgling Grace on the Serial Poetry page. 

There are lots of affordable poems and some epics.  Currently available are these poems:
