If I’ve seemed distracted for the last few months, this is why

I just got this today – it releases in February!
Isn’t it a great cover?

And this one came out the week before Christmas – my holiday gift to myself!  (You try riding herd on 21 different authors and see if you like it!)

Getting these books done was a major milestone, and I hope that this year I might have time for some new projects.

Happy New Year!

  1. Yay, Linda!! Except – you can’t tell us about these exciting books and not give the links to pre-order!!

    I’m so excited about both books and can’t wait to read them. Go you!

  2. Thanks, Genevieve, Deirdre and Daniel! I know you can get TIG and TIGBA most cheaply on Amazon, but the second one doesn’t release until February (but you could probably pre-order). It will be for sale at the Northwest Flower and Garden show, and I’ll be signing copies there. (What better reason than to come visit Seattle?) The big book is literally just off the presses and isn’t in bookstores yet. That’s something I have to work on. But in the meantime, you can go to http://www.sustainablelandscapesandgardens.com to find out how to order it through the mail.

  3. TIG is available at Amazon. You can also preorder TIGBA – I checked it out yesterday. Please keep us posted about Sustainable … I’m anxious to read it.

  4. Deirdre, I’ll be at the speaker’s signing table on Friday right after both of my talks. I’ll also be at the UW Bookstore booth at some point, but they haven’t set their schedule yet.

  5. I will look for you at NWFGS. Good job on debunking myths and common misconceptions that so often prevail. Being a WSU Hort grad myself, I’m giving back by serving on the environmental subcomittee to develope sustainable agriculture standards f
    or the United States. I’m sure there is a book in there when all is said and done. Cheers.

  6. Thanks, Heidi and Scott! (And Scott, do stop by and say hi at the NWFG show. I would love to hear about your work on the environmental subcommittee.)
