April Recap

ISSUE 1 Between the launch of new poetry e-zine, Kigo: Seasonal Words Four-monthly Poetry (free to download here) and taking part in the A to Z Challenge (visit project page here) April is proving to be a busy month indeed at Chuffed Buff Books!

And, in light of National Poetry Month (in the UK it’s October but we appreciate the customs of other locales to hold it in April!) we’ve been running 99p promotions of the kindle editions of Journey to Crone and Cities: A Book of Poems. The paperback edition of Journey to Crone is also currently on sale at £4.99. Whether your penchant is for haiku, women’s poetry, or verse on the city, the above titles are packed with intriguing poems written by a talented group of poets! Or, if you’re looking to mix poetry with the visual and a spot of short fiction, look no further than Sunday Snaps: the Stories, an eclectic collection that combines the lot and sends profits to charity (Details here).

Submissions are now rolling in for our two current projects – which couldn’t be  more different from each other. There is the call for submissions of summer haiku, tanka and haiga for the next issue of Kigo, and then for our next print anthology, Tales of Mystery, SuspensKIGO - ISSUE 2 WEBCOVe and Terror, there’s a call for short fiction styled in the theme of the 19th century ghost story. If you haven’t already sent your submission in, not to worry, there’s still time! Short story writers take note; the deadline for ghostly tales is 31 May. And for haiku aficionados, the deadline for the Kigo summer issue is 13 June. If you’re feeling stuck for words be sure to pop over to the kigo a day page for a collection of suggestions that might help get the ideas flowing!

And, finally, in case you missed it, here’s a brief recap and links to the first half of the April A to Z Challenge:
