Favorite Old Broad Blogfest!
Dynamic duo Julie Kemp Pick and Susan Flett Swiderski compiled this broad baby, with poetic contributions from eight ole broads. Not only did I pose for the shadow on the wall, some of my poems are featured too!
Michael Di Gesu designed the front and back cover. He did a spectacular job. Consider his services when ever you need. You won't be disappointed. Michael's work prompted eight old broads to shout ecstatically, "Wow, you're really good!"
Old Broads is on sale here on Amazon!
Susan wrote this: To celebrate its release, each old broad featured in this book is blogging about her favorite old broad today, and we invite each of you to tell us a little something about your favorite old broad in the comments. Oh, and if you're still offended by the term broad, I apologize. If you'd prefer, you can tell us about your favorite older woman... how's that? Oh yeah, and one of you who comments about your fave broad will be winning a free copy of our book. Points will be earned for creativity, and visiting other broads' (and Michael's) blogs. The winner will be announced next Friday, September 12th.
Cool, huh? (It really IS a cool book... not only is it filled with some fun poetry, but all proceeds from its sale are going to CARE International.)
Now then, let me introduce you to the other broads, so you can follow their blogs, too. (Like I said, they're ALL terrific.)
NOTE: Technically, Michael isn't a broad. He's a guy. A very nice guy who used that lovely image from Francesco Romoli to create our cover for us, so you could say, as an important member of our team, he's an honorary broad. With hairy legs.
Thanks for helping make this a very broad celebration!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Here's a poem about my favorite old broad.
My favorite old broad?
An easy choice pick
Someone younger than…God
And more slender than thick
Like no other ole broad
This one is all heart
With skills off-the-hook
Awesome writing and art
This stud did a job that made eight women sigh.
“Wow! You’re so good!” one by one, each did cry.
How much courage it took
To join an eight women team
Turn our poems to a book
Make real, this broad dream.
Thank you, Michael. We love you!
