Haiku Winners!

Ta-Da! In our Chet haiku contest we have two winners! Many thanks to everyone who gave it a whirl – what a creative bunch!

Christina Kramer Wells for this:

Chet – my ears don’t match
Best leaper – was there a cat?!
You bet, amigo!

And Amy Broughman for what we’ll call her whole body of work, of which this is a sample (complete with a rhyme – really impressive):

Oh, for a cruller!
First bite is the very best,
But so is the rest.

Each haikuist gets a signed advance reader copy (meaning bound uncorrected galleys) of the next Chet and Bernie novel, Of Mutts and Men. (Please message mailing addresses.) Maybe they could tell the rest of us their reactions to the story when they’ve read it. And meanwhile, don’t forget our publisher’s very nice preorder offer!

    Although it’s too late for the contest and I’ve never tried haiku before, i thought I would give it a try in honor of Of Mutts and Men.

    Acquifer runs dry
    Not a drop to drink anywhere
    Chet to the rescue!

    Wee!….My friend has been diligently working on crocheting a Wee Nigel. This will be a gift to repay a very kind person for sewing masks for my friend and Mother…snorkel!…So I am hoping youse all will let me know if (and when) the finished Wee looks at all like Wee. As my friend is limited in her yarn selections (and talent) this task is tricky….yeeep!
