Random Poems of Cat Hartliebe
My original poem book created back in 2013 when I first published. It has been posted for free or 99 cents its entire existence. That won’t change.
This is the original cover from 2013. It was the first cover I ever made that was any level of quality. I like it, but changes are required as time moves forward.
There are 22 poems and 2 short stories in the poem book. The shorts are lyrical in nature. It’s okay if you can’t hear the music like I can.
Poem a Day May series
(2015, 2018, 2020)
The Poem a Day May series is $10 for a paperback book and $0.99 for the ebook ($2.99 during the first month of sales).
There are two reasons I started the Poem a Day May series. To challenge myself, and to challenge the child.
Cyro has joined me every time, although he only made it into 2015 and 2018 books.
In 2015, Cyro helped me stay on track with my words every day for the month. They offered a few poems on their own. I’m proud of them. Six year olds aren’t the best poets. But they tried. That matters.
In 2016 and 2017, we both failed to get anywhere.
In 2018, not only did we succeed at writing a poem every day for a month, we had three other people join us in writing. They did not reach 31 poems done, but we ended up with so many poems, we were required to limit what made it into the book. It was the first time Cyro had to weigh, edit, and decide. They found it frustrating more than anything. But it turned into a beautiful testament to Cyro’s abilities. Both Cyro and I have the same number of poems in Poem a Day May 2018.
In 2019, we started off well. Or I did at least. It was going to be based on myths. There’s quite a few poems from that month I really adore, but since neither of us managed every day for an entire month, the book wasn’t created.
During the pandemic of 2020, I managed to write poems every day for the month. The poems were based off of a song. I also wrote a few extra poems during the month. It was a trying time. The poems helped me manage the added chaos.
Hopefully this series can continue. I look forward to watching Cyro grow as a poet. These challenge help that growth.
Year of Poems series
The Year of Poems paperback books are $10. The ebooks are set to $2.99 (during the first month they will be set to $4.99).
At the end of 2018, I decided to have poems post every Monday. It made a year of poems thus the poem book. All the poems that were posted during 2019 (as well as the few from the previous years) ended up in Year of Poems 2019.
I am planning to create Year of Poems 2020 with all the poems I have posting this year. It’s exciting to have people enjoy my poetry.
There will be more poems posted on Monday.

Want a poem written for you?
Write me a Poem!
Make sure to use a proper email address, so we can communicate. Please note if this is a request for Cat or Cyro. Cyro may not agree. A refund will be made if that’s the case.
You will get to pick a topic/person/situation, and I will create a poem based on your suggestion.
It will be up to you if it gets posted to the blog dedicated to you or whether you wish to keep it.
Note: This will not be a back and forth until you get the perfect poem in your mind. If you are looking for that, please send me an email (CatHartliebe@gmail.com).
This is meant to be fun.
I will refund the payment if I take too long to come up with a poem for you or you pick a topic/etc that I refuse to do. Those topics are limited, but they do exist.
I will not refund payment just because you dislike the poem.
