I feel like I need to do a post to clarify a few things about book one of Seed Savers, Treasure.
Currently there are still two paperback editions of Treasure floating around out there. The story is the same, but the writing is less bulky. I’ve also named the chapters and made the interior prettier with drop caps (those big letters at the beginnings of the chapters.)
The easiest way to tell the two editions apart by looking at them is the revised cover. The first edition of Treasure has “Seed Savers” on top, and Treasure underneath. Second edition has “Treasure” prominent and the series name down at the bottom.
You can also tell the difference by looking at the copyright page. The second edition is clearly stated on the copyright page. And obviously the second edition also has the table of contents (which on a few of the first runs was wrong! ouch)
The most important distinction is the ISBN number.
The ISBN for the new Treasure is 978-1-943345-03-8. This version should soon be available at all distributors, including Baker & Taylor for librarians.
The second edition has also been officially lexiled! So if you are a teacher or librarian and Treasure is being added for the garden program, or a book club, or a class set, the Lexile is 660.
Many of you ask for audio versions and teacher resources. Although I would like to get that done (and a Spanish edition), it does all take time! Book 4, Keeper is due for release in one short month–aah! Promotion also keeps me busy, along with a life and other part-time jobs :).

Thanks, and happy reading! (ps, I can always use more reviews on Amazon and other places for each of my books, so if you have read and enjoyed, please help by leaving a review.)
