If anybody's been wondering why I haven't been blogging for the past several weeks, I swear I have a good excuse. I've been busy. Really busy. And mostly I've been busy with boring work and life stuff. But there's been one item on my on-going to-do list that I'm pretty excited about. After several weeks of ironing out details, today I signed a contract with Cool Springs Press to write a book! Its working title is California Fruit and Vegetable Gardening and it will be released next February. The manuscript is due mid-July, which means ... well, it means I'm already behind schedule. But I'm not worried. I'm very excited about this opportunity and the geek in me that loves doing research is all a-twitter at the good times ahead.
I'll be posting updates to this Facebook page as the book comes together, so feel free to check in and follow along. Notes of encouragement, questions about gardening, or cruel taunts that I'll be spending most of my summer glued to my computer are all welcome and appreciated.
Let the writing/gardening fun begin!
