    Please let Jerry know we are all very impressed with his “eye!” He “saw” it and ran for his camera for that last shot! Which was THE ONE! Way to go, Jerry!

    Fellow CITR Sistas: YES it is available for preorder (at Amazon).
    Suzanne, love the disclaimer on the back of the cover mock up “uncorrected proof not for sale”
    Hope manufacturing, printing, and binding all go well. (printed here, Kingsport, TN, or abroad?). Have you ever been on a press run? Might be fun. All in all, there could not be a better way to mark this spring’s new beginnings than YOUR OWN BOOK. Have a hoppin’ good Easter.

    Wow! It looks fantastic, like a book I would pick up even if I had never heard of CITR! I am always on the lookout for books about people with animals, living the dream. What a wonderful accomplishment. Suzanne. :shimmy:

    Hooray hooray! What a great photo! I’m super-excited for your book – I’ve been a reader for several years and I just can’t WAIT to learn more about your farming adventures! I mean, part of why I read your blog is because my husband and I want to buy a small farm, so I can learn a LOT from your experiences. But the reason you’re my FAVORITE farm blog is because of YOU. Your personality is great and everything comes across in your writing. You’re so honest and captivating that I just can’t bear to miss a single post, even if it’s a topic I’m not terribly interested in. So thank you. :)

    Book looks great! I have pre-ordered two copies, one for me and one for my sister in law who is from the south – well, FL. The final photo is really good and fits so well with my internal vision of what you are like.

    BTW, If I had your hair, I’d hide behind it too:)

    And a chicken to complete the picture! Love love love chickens, but can’t keep them anymore in my apt.

    Nice going, Suzanne!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
