Scattered Verses, Moonlit Curses

When the editor of ‘The Monsters Next Door’ invited me to submit something to her upcoming poetry anthology I was blown away. I’ve never been personally invited to submit to an anthology before! You can bet your butt I was going to take advantage of the offer πŸ™‚

It was tough though. I put all sorts of pressure on myself to come up with some new poems that would fit her theme (dark, scary and not haiku LoL). In the end I submitted four poems, one of which was a repeat; The Sepultress, Zonnet (a zombie sonnet), Lycantrick (which I co-wrote with Jo) and a set of three werewolf haiku.

She accepted them all. Yay! I think the book is due to be released in May, so hopefully everyone else will like them too once that happens LoL
