Publication Date


Photo by Jerry Waters.

I’m wrapping up revisions on my book and getting photos together onto CDs to send to my editor. Meanwhile, a publication date has been set for September 2013! The title of the book will be (big surprise) Chickens in the Road. It’s a wild, juicy adventure filled with cows, cookies, high water, and drama. And all my secrets. Along with the story (and this is a long book, by the way), recipes and crafts are also included in special sections, along with photographs. Don’t miss it. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s available for pre-order!

Also, along with appearing in two upcoming issues of Savor! West Virginia magazine, I’m also featured in an article about once-a-day milking that will be in the January/February issue of Hobby Farms. I’m all over the place! I hope Glory Bee doesn’t get a big head!

    big congrats for you.
    Have you ever thought of giving a writing/ how to get published seminar? Something you have been very successful with in the past. Just curious…
    Hope the new calf is a lil heifer who gives her momma “payback” What breed will she/ he be?

  15. lesliedgray says:

    I, too, wish you’d give a writing seminar.. I am interested in writing.. i would have LOVED to attend this last one because the two things I am most interested in right now is cheese and soap making…. Oh well, maybe plan another one for next year?
