Poetry of a Hobo Mama by Lauren WayneIn honor of April's National Poetry Month, I am so pleased to offer a giveaway of SEVEN copies of my poetry book, Poetry of a Hobo Mama: The First Three Years. Each copy retails for $11.99, so the combined value of this giveaway is $72!

Poetry of a Hobo Mama is a collection of poems inspired by the initial three years of parenting my firstborn son, Mikko.

About the book

I sling my baby like a bindle on my back,
tramping along the tracks
countless feet have worn before.

Poetry of a Hobo Mama contains three years' worth of parenting poetry, written from the time my husband, Sam, and I were preparing for Mikko, through watching him grow to three years old. I've intentionally included poems that speak of our natural parenting journey — breastfeeding, the family bed, elimination communication, and natural birth among them.

The book is a combination of free verse and more traditional poetry forms, and the topics and tone run through all the variations I felt when writing them: the grief of miscarriage, the anticipation of trying to conceive, the upheaval of the newborn months, the joy of parenting, and the balance of motherhood with personal passion.

Review: Monkey Butt Junction on Kindle

This is an unsolicited review I left on Amazon that I'm reprinting for you.

Price: $0.99
Availability: Includes a free trial and automatic wireless delivery

5.0 out of 5 stars Honesty, ruminations, and a catchy name!November 27, 2011
I love how Jenn at Monkey Butt Junction (who wouldn't love that name, by the way?) combines the realness of her everyday natural parenting life with the thoughtfulness she brings to everything. She thinks deeply, and she takes action when necessary. And it doesn't hurt that her kid is super cute.

As someone slogging through Couch-to-5K, I also love how Jenn is a proud graduate who inspires me to keep on keeping on with my running! She has many posts devoted to running and fitness that will surely make you want to hit the pavement yourself.
