It's finally here! I don't know about you but I'm glad to be able to stop saying it's almost here and have a physical product to show off. Big kudos to my publisher, Chelsea Green Publishing, for all the work they did in putting together a beautiful product. The words within will speak for themselves but I'm thrilled with how amazing the final product looks. Click here for information on how to order your very own copy. Although I fully support independent booksellers and publishers, Amazon rankings are a big deal, so wherever you buy it, please review it on Amazon and elsewhere.
My event schedule is booking up quickly. Stay tuned for 2016 workshop and book tour information. I presented at the Mother Earth News Fair in Kansas recently. I received a lot of wonderful feedback, and signed some books (see photos below). Coming up (very) soon, I'll be doing some local signings. On Wednesday, November 4 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm, I'll be celebrating the book's official publication date with a signing and a reading at Robie Books in my hometown of Berea, Kentucky. You can find information at the Facebook event page. I'll also be signing at the Berea College Store along with other alumni authors during the Berea College Homecoming on Friday, November 13 from 12 pm to 5 pm and Saturday, November 14 from 10 am to 1 pm. Finally, I'll be teaching a workshop on how to make a simple "small mead" flavored with holiday spices that attendees will brew on site and will be able to bring home and drink in time for the holidays. See here for details.
Hope to see you at an upcoming event. Keep on meadening!
