Inside Scoop Live Award for Most Innovative Book of Poetry

Winner of 5 Awards

I’m so happy to remind you that in addition to the Gold Medal for Poetry, A Penny for Your Thoughts received the Reader Views Inside Scoop Live Award for the Most Innovative Book of Poetry. 

I am now preparing to accept the Interview and Poetry Reading, which will be a podcast interview recorded and published on a personalized author page.  I will also be provided an MP3 link to share on my social media sites, and it will be available on iTunes podcasts as well.

In addition to providing several topics of conversation not directly related to my book, I have been asked to select a poem I would like to read as part of the interview.  That’s where I hope you will help me out!   I will not choose Old Woman, since that was included in the lovely review I received from Reader Views, but I am leaning toward Grandfather Clock, Frozen Wasteland, My Tree, I Think of You, and several others.

Would you please let me know if you have any favorites you would like to hear me read?  I would love to hear from you!!!  (Please either comment here or send me an email sherrillcannon@aol.com)  Thanks so much!!!

Please stay tuned for further details!!!
