Today’s post is strictly informational and time sensitive. I’ve been busy with a lot of things and want to keep you up-to-date.
First, I am currently giving away the short book, The Lunchroom, with a sign-up to my email newsletter. The Lunchroom consists of several chapter-length stories giving more background to characters in the Seed Savers series. Find out more about Clare, Lily, Rose and Jason by downloading The Lunchroom here. Also included in The Lunchroom are instructions on seed saving, tea making, and the poems Clare wrote for her 8th grade writing project.
Additionally, by following the above link you can learn about a dozen more middle grade/YA books! This special is good through March 25, 2017, only.
Second, many of you are wondering when book 5 in the Seed Savers series will be available. See the recent review left on Amazon in regard to book 4, Keeper:
My 10 yr old daughter says this series is the best she has ever read. She hopes volume 5 will be out soon. She said when she was finished reading this last book she felt like throwing a fit because she couldn’t read another in the series. My daughter is an avid reader and has never thrown a fit or said she had ever wanted to until she finished this book. Hope there are more to come in this series.
Yes, there is a book 5. Yes, I am working on it now. Yes, I have fallen off the wagon again and have stopped writing for awhile. I will try to pick it up again soon! I do want to finish it this year.
Third, some of the reasons I’ve fallen off the writing wagon… Treasure is finally being made into an audiobook!! In fact, it will be available in April! I will keep you posted. Also, I am busy setting things up for some big events coming later this year and as always, setting up promotions for Seed Savers so that more people can hear about the series.
If you are already a fan, please tell everyone who would be interested about the Seed Savers series!!
These are the big events for Seed Savers this year: the International Master Gardener Conference will be held in Portland in July. I will be in booth 101 to meet you and sell and sign books!
On the heels of the MG conference is the National Children & Youth Garden Symposium, also in the Vancouver, WA & Portland, OR area. I’ll be presenting about the Seed Savers series at this awesome gathering of garden educators and program coordinators.
I will also, most likely, return to the Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa, CA in September. This will be my fourth year at this fun and informative event.
For those of you who have read all the way to the end of this post: If you haven’t yet read Treasure or Lily, both ebooks will be on sale for 99 cents starting on March 26 and running through April 9! Be sure to download for spring vacation reading. 🙂
