Poetry Award for Cinema Stanzas Two
I received a big surprise right before Thanksgiving when I learned that CINEMA STANZAS TWO: Poet Laureate of the Movies received First Place in the E-Book poetry category at the 2019 Royal Dragonfly Book Award contest.
Thanks to the judges as well as to my publisher Denise Fitzgerald Cassino for her magical touch, to Richard Jack Smith for his great Foreword, to Brian T Shirley for his fun cover rhyme, and to all my friends who supported this project by purchasing the book or reviewing it or commenting on it or giving me permission to use their quotes in our PR campaign or simply cheering me on . I feel honored, blessed and excited all at the same time.
This second offering in the Cinema Stanzas series presents over 70 movie reviews/film poems I have written since the first book was published, plus several other movie related poems. Films of various genres receive my rhyming treatment.
I hope this book serves as a fun resource for fans of both movies and poetry. Published by BestsellerServices.com, Cinema Stanzas Two is available from Amazon’s Kindle Store.
