OUR VIRTUAL WORLD requires that authors of new books do more than go to bookstores and libraries to speak—they need to hold a “blog book tour,” too. Week 3 of mine includes several new chances to win a copy of “The Backyard Parables” and some juicy stories, too.
the latest stories
Susan Harris at Garden Rant: Susan wished me “woo-woo back atcha!” in her story about what I call the “shrub season” of my life, about obsessive plant phases we have known, and more. Enjoy!
Gayla Trail of You Grow Girl: Gayla, with whom I’ve corresponded since I began blogging five years ago (she’s in her 13th year, an internet pioneer!), wrote her story mentioning my book in the form of a letter to me. She’s offering copies in a giveaway as well.
Leslie Land: Leslie, who I first knew when she did garden Q&A for the “New York Times” and who gardens not far from me, had only one question to ask, but it turned out to be a doozie that connected some dots for me I hadn’t connected before. Books up for grabs in a giveaway, too, all here.
Dirt du Jour: A book giveaway on “Free book Friday”—and this time it’s of my latest. Go forth, and enter.
Cold Climate Gardening: Kathy Purdy’s post includes a book giveaway, over at Cold Climate Gardening. Years ago, Kathy visited here one fall day and I have the autumn crocus, or Colchicum, she brought from her own place to prove it. Nice!
plus 16 previous tour stops!
THE 16 previous stops—podcasts and Q&As and etc.—are all outlined with links on this page. Thanks, readers and bloggers, for all your interest in “The Backyard Parables.”
