Haiku Friday – Hope & Stay

18 Aug

Lisa Burton Radio-The Fall of Lilith-Craig Boyack-Vashti Quiroz Vega-Vashti Q-The Writer Next Door-characters-interview-Fantasy Angels Series

Happy Friday! Welcome. First, I wanted to let everyone know that I am Lilith, one of the main characters from The Fall of Lilith, is a guest at Entertaining Stories – Lisa Burton Radio. Lisa is author Craig Boyack’s robot assistant and the host of the Lisa Burton Radio Show. She interviews Lilith and things get a bit heated. So please stop by Craig’s blog and watch the sparks fly.

I also wanted to mention that Kirkus Reviews notified me that the review for The Fall of Lilith was published in the August 15th issue of their magazine.

“I wanted to let you know that your review for “The Fall of Lilith” was selected by our Indie Editors to be featured in the Kirkus Reviews magazine.

Congratulations! The review appears as one of the 35 reviews in the Indie section of the magazine which is sent out to over 5,000 industry professionals (librarians, publishers, agents, etc.) Less than 10% of our Indie reviews are chosen for this, so it’s a great honor.” ~Sarah Woodbyrne

Okay, let’s move on to this week’s haiku challenge.

I hear the chirping

My inner bird sings of hope

Doves perch near my heart
