Dreamcatcher and other poems by Emily Sturgill

Two free promos on kindle are ongoing today. The free download of my kindle version of my 4th poetry chapbook, “Mythology seen through metaphor:word salad 1.5” is still going on until tonight at 11:59pm.

Last night at midnight, my 5th chapbook, containing poetry and art went into a fee promotion download period, “Dreamcatcher and other Poems.” by Emily Sturgill (2013) That one does include 2 popular poems off my blog, “senseless” and “the day the root canal never happened.”

Both e-books, contain various poems and bits of artwork, by me. Normally, i think one costs, $3.99 on kindle, and the other costs $5.99. But today you can have them both, totally for free, no strings attached.
When you buy e-books from Amazon’s kindle, if you buy they during promo as free, they are used to keep in your collection even after the promo is over, so that’s a great deal!!! If you do not like something you can always delete it from your e-book collction.

the promo on the 5th e-book will last through until March 5th at 11:59 pm.
If you downloads any of these free e-books, please, consider leaving me some feedback or a review on my authors
