Guest Blogger & Giveaway Host: Mari L'Esperance

I'm happy today to have a guest blogger, poet Mari L'Esperance. Mari joins us as part of the Big Poetry Giveaway. Welcome, Mari!

Big Poetry Giveaway 2012

*********************************************************************************
Jessica has generously agreed to let me "borrow" her blog to announce my participation in the NaPoMo poetry giveaway. I'm giving away a copy of my book The Darkened Temple, which was awarded a Prairie Schooner Book Prize and published by the University of Nebraska Press in 2008. Along with my book, I'm giving away a brand-new, hardcover copy of Yusef Komunyakaa's The Chameleon Couch (2011 Farrar, Straus and Giroux).

Thanks, everyone, for participating! I've used a random name selector to choose the two winners:

- Carol has won a copy of my poetry collection _The Darkened Temple_ (2008 U. of Nebraska Press)!

- Michael has won a copy of Yusef Komunyakaa's _The Chameleon Couch_! (2011 FSG)!

I'll be emailing the winners shortly with the news and to get snail mail addresses for mailing your winnings.

Congratulations to both winners and a VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to Jessica for hosting me on her blog so I could participate in the Big Poetry Giveaway for National Poetry Month! —Mari
