My new series is titled The Colour of Her Mind. It is a series of blackout poems created from The Color of Her Panties by Piers Anthony. The Color of Her Panties is a Xanth series novel I re-read last summer. I loved the Xanth series as an adolescent. As an adult, I dislike the books. Yes, there are still the many puns that won me over in younger years; however, there is also the misogyny.
After last summer’s re-read, I pondered what to do with my collection of Xanth (and Incarnations of Immortality series) novels. Sell them? Donate them to the local literacy second-hand book store? Then came the idea for blackout poems, a creative response to the dilemma.
The first poem “Mermen” is up and ready for reading, with two other poems slated for release this week. I intend to release a few blackout poems each week for six months.
Channillo charges $2.59 per month to view one series. As the author, I will see a significant portion of that money once I reach the $50 minimum threshold.
