That said, I was pleased as punch when I came across the above "Top Ten" recognition yesterday. Whilst finally going through a backlog of mail during one of my and Huxley's 12 daily nursing/pumping sessions (dudeman can DRINK!), I opened the packet to Homestyle Books, one of two books-buying clubs to which I belong (the other, based around cookbooks, is The Good Cook-deep, steep discounts abound here, folks). Lo and behold, within the pages of their catalogue, I recognized a familiar cover.
Thank you, Homestyle Books, for giving a shout out to "Keeping Chickens." I adore the book, the whole series in fact (and not just because I wrote it-remember, humility runs in my veins-but because of the exemplary work of the entire creative team I was blessed to work with). Now that we're in between books ("Home Dairy" and "Keeping Bees" debut March 2011), I have to admit to missing working with the team, as well as writing and researching some "Homemade Living" topic on a daily basis.
Hopefully there will be more topics in the series and I'll be back to work, and elbow-rubbing with my Lark buddies, before too long. On that note, what "Homemade Living" topics would you like to see in future books? We're toying with "Beverages" and "Kitchen Gardens" right now. I've got loads of other ideas in store, but I'd love to hear your suggestions, so, bring 'em!
