National Poetry Month 2015: Celebrating GONE FISHING: A Novel In Verse Paperback

The final book featured in my National Poetry Month 2015 celebration is my own verse novel: Gone Fishing: A Novel in Verse. Last month I hit a new career milestone when it was released in paperback and to celebrate I'm giving away one copy of the new paperback.  

Here is the flap copy from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt:

The new Gone Fishing paperback is on the right, next to the original hard copy.Sam loves fishing with his dad. So when his pesky little sister, Lucy, horns in on their fishing trip, he’s none too pleased. "Where's my stringer/ Something's wrong!/This princess doll does not belong!" With winsome poems—from acrostic to balladand a Poet's Tackle Box at the end, this is the perfect primer to hook aspiring poets of all ages.  

"Just the thing for readers with a burgeoning interest in poetry - or angling." - Publisher's Weekly
