Barnheart has landed!

Today a small package arrived at the office with a big Storey stick slapped across it. Soon as I saw it, I knew exactly what it was and my eyes lit up like a pet store puppy. It was the first "official" copy of Barnheart, from the first printing. What a thrill, what a quiet thrill. It turned out to be the first thrill of the day as well, since I discovered Made From Scratch made the Beekman 1802 email newsletter as a winter read. Those guys are the best. I emailed them to thank them, and Brent asked if I wanted to feature and excerpt on their site?! I sent it right away!

If you would like, you can order a copy from Connie here in Cambridge at Battenkill Books and Gibson and I will sign it for you. It's a way to help a small bookstore, support the Cold Antler community of Cambridge/Jackson, and get a special message from me. I'm heading down to the bookstore Friday with Gibson to do some Christmas shopping and check on the orders so far. My goal is 200, and I think we are at 125 pre-orders already! So Grab some for the Holidays and help explain to people the origin of your disease!

What a special day, and I too love the cover!

Keep in mind, pet store puppies are akin to battery hens and factory farmed meat, industries of greed and terror.

Finished the ARC in one night, and it's still making it's way around the store staff. I'm sure we will sell a stack of them. :D

Yay! I need to order...now. :) I loved Made from Scratch and finished Chick days today. Can't wait to get my chickens in the Spring.

So happy for you and enjoy the publishing of your third book!
*I think I'm out of the loop...what's ARC?

Congratulations Jenna!

Brent and Josh may have seen my article of Made from Scratch too. They sometimes stop by my site and peek now and again after finding out about it. They are two really great guys. So happy for you and your new book. I cannot wait to read and review it.

Congratulations, Jenna. Love the cover. Will be pre-ordering just to get Gibson's signature. I will let Oliver (my Aussie)sniff it, so he can get to know both of you. I keep telling him that if Gibson can herd, so can he.

Hello, Jenna!

Just wondering if we can purchase your books in ebook form? It's a much cleaner (and quicker!) way to get them to Brazil.

Cheers!
