GOOD NEWS!!!! The Haiku Club Anthology is published! It contains eighteen haiga and one hundred and fifty haiku from twenty-six contributing authors. All authors are members of the FanStory Haiku Club. FanStory is an online group of international writers.

The focus of this book is on "Nature". It features a variety of observations made by these writers and their insights into the meaning of those observations.

Authors were issued a weekly challenge and asked to write a haiku about a specific aspect of nature. The best of these haiku were selected for this book.

We are happy to announce that this book is now available on Amazon USA and Amazon Canada. It will be available on Amazon Europe soon. It is listed at the minimum markup that Amazon would allow. Any proceeds from this book will go to the FanStory Haiku Club to help defray the costs of the second book. No one on the haiku club board of directors or any other individual will make any profit on this book, even though we contributed over $400 to complete and publish it.

We hired a professional graphic artist to complete the layout of this book. It has full-color haiga. The overall presentation is flawless and very appealing. It is a book that all of the FanStory can be proud of.

We will be starting on the second anthology sometime in September. If you want more information to join the haiku club, please send me a private message.

Thank you very much,
