I’m hugely pleased to report that The Republic of Dirt, follow-up to The Woefield Poultry Collective, is available for pre-order in the U.S. and the UK!
You can order the book at any online or bricks and mortar retailer and it will ship as soon as it’s ready.To celebrate this fact, I’m running a little contest.
U.S. and UK residents who pre-order The Republic of Dirt now (and send me a confirmation) will be entered into a contest to win one of three coveted GENUINE Republic of Dirt Burlap bags! (Please note that the links are for Amazon, but you can order from any retailer you like.) UK residents have not had a chance to purchase The Woefield Poultry Collective and so I will be throwing a copy of the first book in the series into the bag.
You can’t even believe how sweet these bags are. And big. They are also surprisingly roomy. The book is the same way. Sweet. Funny and big hearted.
If you are unfamiliar with the books and found yourself on my website by chance while looking for information about the burlap industry, well, you’re still invited to enter. Allow me to give you a description:
Prudence Burns is an overly idealistic Brooklyn girl who has inherited a derelict plot of land named Woefield Farm. Her motley crew of farm hands consists of Earl, an elderly, reclusive bluegrass legend; Seth, an agoraphobic heavy-metal blogger in early recovery from alcoholism; and Sara, an 11-year-old girl with a flock of elite show poultry.
When Prudence is felled by a thyroid condition, things on the farm begin to fall apart, resulting in valiant and sometimes ill-advised attempts to restore domestic bliss. Efforts are complicated by a renegade mule, attempts to turn a hideously ugly child’s playhouse into a high-yield roadside farm stand, and an electrical station’s worth of crossed wires. Will Prudence get well? Will Seth finally get rid of his pesky virginity? Will Earl rescue Sara? And will anyone, ever, admit they might be wrong?
Told in four highly distinct, unforgettably hilarious, and sometimes heartbreaking voices, The Republic of Dirt is about what happens when passions collide with pride and what it takes to save each other, our small part of the planet, and ourselves.
Don’t be shy, U.S. and UK folks! Order Republic of Dirt now. You won’t be sorry.
