Write a memory.

Or a haiku–like Jeannie Patton’s “PaiKu” for Pirate King:

Peg leg is a pain

Reeling around deck in storm

Would kill for two feet.

An alternative cover?

      Thank you, Laurie. My poor computer is so protected, half the time it won’t let me in at all! Silly thing.

  4. Laurie King says:

    Merrily–these are past contests, I was hoping to get a few more images from this one, since they’re mostly written. Which is fine, but…variety!
