happy publication day (don’t burst my bubble!)

TODAY IS BE NICE TO MARGARET DAY; please mark it on your calendars, because my “new” life (which usually only Jack the Demon Cat, the frogboys, birds and the occasional snake bear witness to) is now flapping in the breeze. Out there. Appearing in a bookstore near you. The scoop on the birth of “And I Shall Have Some Peace There” is right here on the book blog. Or just go buy a copy, won’t you? :)

    Congratulations Margaret. Your book was waiting on my Kindle this morning when I turned it on. Very much looking forward to reading it.

    Your new baby arrived last week and I’ve already finished reading “and I shall have some peace there” for the first time. There’s lots of great “stuff” in here to savor and absorb, so I am now reading it AGAIN more slowly and thoughtfully. It’s that good. Thanks for sharing your experience warts and all and Best Wishes on this new adventure. I’m looking forward to seeing you on TV Friday and via Skype in the future. ;-)

    Just ordered my copy from Amazon.ca and can’t wait to read it. Been a fan of your site for a while now and looking forward to reading the book. Good Luck.

    Cheers Ms M.

    I Saw the add for your book in today’s NY Times… can’t wait to read it.
    … Also liked what Martha Stewart had to say about you in the same advertisement.
    “Superb, She has done what so few of us would ever have the guts to do!”

    Way to go Ms M.

    Congrats! I got your new book via Amazon and have it on my table. Trying to clear out a stack of library books due this week, but looking forward to reading it. I’ve been browsing thru it already. It’s beautiful!

    Margaret, I just ordered it for my Kindle just now. Many congratulations! I appreciate this site and the chance to support you.

    Congratulations to you! I’ve been following your blog for awhile now and have been looking forward to the book release. I cannot wait to read it.

    Enjoy this great accomplishment.

      Welcome today (on my special day!) to Karen, Margaret (another Margaret), Steve, Mike. Thank you all for being here today of all days. I cannot express how much it means to have old and new friends with me on this occasion.

    I received my copy last week from my independent bookstore. I’m reading it very slowly, savoring and absorbing also. Thank you for sharing your life and your thoughts with us again.

    I read last night about the absolute powerlessness we all come face to face with as gardeners. And today my place in the world is covered in mounting snow. No gardening today, but reading words of another gardener tonight.

    Congratulations, Margaret. I’ve just started reading your book and am always sorry when I have to put it down to attend to “real life”. A great read so far!

    I’m also a Manhattan magazine escapee living in the Hudson Valley, a mad gardener, of English parentage, with a stray tuxedo cat, a June birthday, and a love of frog princes, birds, compost piles, and the colors red and green — I can’t wait to get my copy and find out what else we have in common. Congratulations! I just know it’s going to be a big success.

    Hi Margaret,

    I just completed my order from Amazon.ca! I want to thank you for inspiring and educating this new gardener. Even though I’m in a much different zone (the far left coast of Canada) I’ve learned so much through your site. I’m just starting my garden this year and can’t wait for your book to arrive (along with Michael Dirr’s ‘Viburnums’!) A wonderful way to pass this snowy time. Congratulations!

  12. Melissa says

    My library ordered your book, and I know that since it got such good reviews that other libraries did as well. It’s slowly making its way into the world. Congratulations! You must be happy and proud.

      Thanks again to all of you — and welcomes, too.

      Welcome to Jen (I love the idea of my book and Dirr’s traveling together to you…he’s been a mentor via his books for years to me, though I have never met him).

      Welcome to Tamara. On the iPad (and other color e-readers), I think you will have a couple of dozen photos that I took and added in. Can’t wait to hear how that looks…

      Carol: So glad it arrived (and happy to be interrupting “real life,” tee hee.

    Margaret, I will be picking up your book from the library as soon as possible. (Time hard to pin-point since I am still searching for peace here!) My youngest daughter works at our local library, so we are all huge fans . . . but I am thinking this is going to be a book to own, so I can easily read it more than once! Hope today was grand! Warmest regards
