Poetry Is Brain Food

And today you can feed your brain for cheap.



Just go to Lulu to access the coupon code, then place your order for . . . oh, I don't know . . . Brief Light:  Sonnets and Other Small Poems.  For example . . .

This has been a public service announcement.

And I paid full price!
Ok, I'm just going to think of that as a vote for poetry, a proclamation of faith for writing that is like a crystal, clear, but the facets make it sparkle and us smile at the "off-center" way the words sometimes "clarify" an intriguing idea.

Now I feel better.

better said: "facet-like" tilt which may clarify ideas.

Well, thank you for the vote! Makes me happy. And I like your analogy.

Wah, I can't get the code to work. Does it recognize that I'm overseas or something else? I think I spelled everything correctly... Guess I may have to pay full price, too.

Hm, it shouldn't matter, Emily -- they print on demand from locations around the world. You did grab the coupon code at the Lulu site, not the one here on the blog, right?

I'll see what I can find out for you.

Sally Thomas said...

Or, no, never mind, it is the same, isn't it. I dunno . . .

Sally Thomas said...

It's not already tomorrow where you are, is it?

Emily J. said...

It is tomorrow, but the same thing happened with the first coupon code, too. Then I left the book lounging in the checkout cart because I didn't have time to get my credit card, but now if I stop reading, I've got time to seek said card. I'll find out if the ordering allows for overseas shipping without a prohibitive cost, in which case, I'll get a family member to buy it for me.

Hmm, sorry about the coupon codes. If I remember correctly, as a print-on-demand company Lulu has printing outlets all over the world, so that a book shouldn't have to travel that far to reach a buyer -- they're not all printed in the continental U.S. *Hopefully* this means that your shipping costs wouldn't be prohibitive, though I can't say for sure.

Thanks for persevering, anyway!
