Life is like of books

It was a grand sight.

Two big boxes were sitting on the back porch (surrounded by our cats who were waiting for dinner). This is it. My first official copies of So Much Sky.

I popped open one box and it was like looking into a new box of chocolates: so uniform, so perfect, so fresh.

A couple days earlier, my book popped onto the cybershelves at

And, poof, just like that (after 6 years), the book is done. ;-)

So is my website for So Much Sky. And my author site too. Thanks to Bob and Carina at Catchup Communications.

So Much Sky

Okay, so I'm a slothful blogger. That's pretty obvious. But I'm back in the saddle again. Because I have some cool news. My new book, So Much Sky, is on the way. It features an awesome cover photo by Graham Jimerson of our Haflinger horse Sam standing with his friend a Katahdin sheep in our pasture. So Much Sky will be for sale on soon.

So Much Sky is a compilation of 55 essays that were published in Country Home, Country Almanac, and Horticulture magazines. The book is organized into four chapters that reflect the seasons and the goings-on at our farm in rural Iowa.

I'll post more about the book soon. Thanks to everyone who has sent me emails asking about it.
