Poetry readathonColleen M. Chesebro

I purchased and reviewed Fairies, Myths & Magic by Colleen M. Chesebro as part of the Poetry Readathon and Poetry Blog Promotion series I am currently hosting.

I follow the author’s blog and find her poetry to be beautifully written, diverse and intriguing. My enjoyment of the author’s blog led me to purchase her poetry book, released earlier this year.

Colleen runs a weekly poetry challenge where poets are encouraged to express themselves using different poetry forms such as haikus, tankas and cinquains. Colleen proves so excellent instruction on how to writes these poetic variations. You can experience Colleen’s blog here: https://colleenchesebro.com/

My review of The Heart Stone Chronicles

A phenomenal review of my book from Robbie Cheadle which captures Abby’s spirit perfectly. ❤️❤️❤️

Robbie's inspiration

Heart stone

What Amazon says

Fourteen-year-old Abigale Forester, recently orphaned and a ward of the State of Illinois moves from Chicago to Florida to live with her aunt, her last living relative. Magnolia Forester becomes her legal Guardian, and together they claim an ancient inheritance; land that belonged to Abby’s mother’s family for generations.

Holding onto the only piece of her mother Abby has left, a calcite pendant and her mother’s most sacred possession, she discovers the truth of her legacy. The pendant is more significant than she could possibly imagine. Forged from a giant mystical heart-shaped stone found on the very swamp land Abby now owns, it holds the power of her ancestors.

But with that power comes greater responsibility, one that pits her against Rafe Cobb, a greedy land developer, who will stop at nothing to own Abby’s swamp land.

As Abby learns to be part of a family again…

Smorgasbord Poetry – Which Cake? by Robbie Cheadle

Robbie, from Robbie’s Inspiration, is so clever. Check out her poetry and her cakes! ❤

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Today Robbie Cheadle ponders the question about what cake to bake for her husband and his impending birthday. There is already so much baking going on in the Cheadle household that coming up with something special to surprise him is going to be a challenge.

Which cake?

My hubby’s birthday is coming
I must make him a cake,
It really hard to decide,
Which one I should bake.

Should it be chocolate
Decorated with cherries,
Or a meringue tower
With cream and wild berries.

A gingerbread house,
Covered in bright sweets,
A selection of pastries,
Filled with sweetmeats.

Something quite tart,
Like lemon and lime.
Or a baked cheesecake,
With tastes quite sublime.

Something quite simple,
Like scones, jam and cream.
Or a yummy treacle pudding,
Cooked in a basin, over steam.

So many delicious choices,
What would he like best?
I’ll conjure up a surprise,
And put it to…
