More good news about The Dirt Book

Hi everyone,

I checked Amazon this morning and discovered that THE DIRT BOOK has now been listed as the #1 new release for the third time. First was habitat and ecology; 2nd was in zoology; this third #1 is in disease. I guess that figures. Dirt is…well…dirty. In any event, I’m thrilled to see the range of interest in the new title.

Off to a good start

Hi everyone,

THE DIRT BOOK just got a starred review from Shelf Awareness so that’s a nice way to kick off its first day.

Also, I received an invitation to speak on a science poetry panel at a national conference this fall. More about that soon.
