A Symphony of Seasons Blog Tour

 It's my great pleasure to announce the release of my new poetry book, A Symphony of Seasons, published by RPJ and Company. It has themes of music and the seasons, like a symphony with various movements, harmoniously weaving together through the cycle of the seasons.

Each of the seasons has its harmony,
with various melodies raising,
As a natural reaction that is expressed
when lives formed by God are praising.

A two week blog book tour begins on May 1, and the blogs hosting each stop are listed below. There will be drawings at the end of the tour for two prizes.

One prize is a Vivaldi Four Seasons CD and the other is a hummingbird suncatcher windchime.

Enter the drawing for these two prizes by leaving a comment below. Additional entries can be earned for comments left on the blogs listed below during the tour, for following this blog, and for sharing this post or any of the posts during the tour on Facebook or Twitter (be sure to post a comment here when you do that so you'll get your extra entries).

You will receive a free gift with your purchase of a signed copy of A Symphony of Seasons from me during this tour, a beautiful framed season photo with one of my verses on it. A beautiful gift for Mother's Day, graduation or other special occasion! Photos are by photographer Gary Strader.



 Purchase book on my website or email me at conarnold(at)gmail(dot)com if you'd like me to send you an invoice to pay with credit card, debit card or check. Be sure to let me know how to personalize the book and which season you prefer for your free gift.

A Symphony of Seasons is also available from RPJ and Company or Amazon and ebook special offer from Smashwords through May 31 of $3.25 using coupon code QX77N. You can also view several pages of the book on Smashwords and read a few poems.

I am impressed that you write poetry. When, I was a child, I wanted to write and although, I wrote little poetry, I read it a lot.

Good luck on your tour and thanks for stopping by my blog.
