Blog Hop & Major Announcement

A Cozy Reader's Corner Reviews
HELLO EVERYONE. Happy spring! 

  • First, 

I am participating in the ten-day, Authors in Bloom Blog Hop taking place from April 7 through 16. If you visit and leave a comment on each participating blog, you will be eligible to win the grand prize, a Kindle or Nook (a $200 value) and a $25 gift card worth of ebooks. (Winner's choice which ereader and ebook retailer gift card.) A second prize of $25 ereader gift card will also be given, available to international residents. (Void where prohibited by law.) You must leave a comment with your email and whether you're located in the US or INTL. Winners will be announced on April 19th, on the hosts' blogs: Dianne Venetta's blog and Tiffany Schlarman's A Cozy Reader's Corner Reviews blog. Scroll to the very bottom of the page to see the participating blogs. 

  • Second, (drum roll please) 

I am officially announcing the release of GRACE IN THE GARDEN: THIRTY YEARS OF BLUNDERS AND BLISS. 
I am privileged to have a very nice blurb written by garden book author and all around super person, Ricki Grady. 

The gardening lexicon is crowded with books describing how to garden. In these 29 short chapters, Grace Peterson captures the essence of why we garden. A self-proclaimed graduate of the School of Hard Knocks, Grace never hesitates to entertain with stories drawn from her own missteps and catastrophes. However, she is also a certified Master Gardener, so make no mistake, she knows her stuff. 

Read this book and let Grace carry you on a river of words. You will explore tributaries where she will tease you with her wicked wit before surprising you with unexpected outcomes. In Grace's capable hands, gardening becomes an irresistible metaphor for life itself. Through it all, she will convince you that gardening is just plain fun. 

--Ricki Grady, author of BEBOP GARDEN: RIFFING AND JIVING IN THE PLANT KINGDOM
and blogger at "Sprig to Twig". 

Grace in the Garden will be available on Amazon. On April 16th, when the Authors in Bloom blog hop concludes, I will be giving away a copy of Grace in the Garden to one lucky commenter. Maybe it will be you.
