You remember haiku from high school English class, right? Five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, five in the third. But our topic is not nature or seasons--it's fiction. Your haiku can have anything to do with books or authors. It can be serious or funny, dumb or brilliant. But it can't be rude, crude, or insult anyone or their work, or it'll get the axe. Our goal is to have fun, not make fun of anyone's books. You can enter as many times as you want.
Some examples from books I've read recently:
Inspired by Garden Plot, by Kristen McKendry
Body in the beans
I hate it when that happens
But that cop is cute
Inspired by Bloodbourne, by Gregg Luke
Gregg Luke writes creepy
Stories about mosquitoes
Bring on the Off
Inspired by Honeymoon Heist, by Anna Jones Buttimore
If you take a bag
Filled with the bad guy's money
You'll have a bad week
Anybody want to play? One week from today, on Monday, September 26th, I'll draw a random winner from the entries (so the more haiku you write, the more chances you'll have to win). The winner will receive a copy of my novel, Rearview Mirror, which will be released in just a couple of weeks.
A haiku in honor of the book's release:
A new book coming
