Rick’s editor here. Rick is on the road with family, enjoying a little spring break before heading over to Jackson, MS for a reading at Lemuria’s tonight, and then to N’Awleans and Garden District Bookshop. His family hit Alabama this past Friday, along with the tornados, and they had to pull off the road several times. He appeared at the Alabama Book Festival on Saturday, to a relieved crowd enjoying quiet, sunny skies.
Anyway . . . SEEDS is in bookstores today!!!! Several years of work and travel and writing and rewriting and storing tree seeds all over the house and now, it’s a book!!!! I’m so happy for Richard, a novelist who brings his eye to this subject so perfectly. And thank you to Deb, his sister, and Matt, his nephew, who provided the seed sketches for each chapter opening.
SEEDS in original trade paperback today. Please check it out.
