For those of you who don’t know… I’ve written a book. A proper one. A year’s worth of my blogs and stories from a garden blogging competition has been turned into a book. Its called “The Good Life four glorious seasons in my country garden” and has been sponsored by the company that ran the competition: Yates – the most respected seed company in Australia and New Zealand and published by Harper Collins. It is currently at the printers and should be released in stores in Australia and NZ in March next year, but I have been given the go ahead to show you what it will look like! I’m really excited, but at the same time I cant believe it. It has all happened so fast. It wasn’t in my 2012 New Years Resolutions to write a book, but here I am, with a book and the year isn’t even finished yet!
So I had to get myself a website to bring all my stuff together, and hopefully I’ll be able sell books for overseas readers from next year if any one would be interested. I’ve had loads of fun making the website and it has all sorts of extra stuff like photos and recipes and a calendar of everything I’ve done in the garden – oh and all sorts of cool stuff. Go and check it out: Sarah the Gardener.co.nz
I’ve also had to join the world of facebook, which is actually completely new to me as I have never had a page before. So I’m not entirely sure how it works but search for “Sarah the Gardener” and there I’ll be. And don’t forget I have a You Tube channel where I give tours of my garden. Look for gardeningkiwi or click here!
Oh and while I’m here can someone please tell me why my blog “goats love kale”, which I like, but don’t think it’s my best blog, is my highest viewed blog? It gets more hits than my home page! I’m quite happy for people to continue to read this blog, but it just baffles me that there is this great secret going on, and I don’t know what it is!
Come again soon – I need to go and harvest more strawberries and peas than I know what to do with!
