Happy Friday! Here’s to a warm, sunny weekend after days of cold and rain! (Fingers crossed.) And, cheers to another great week of Fulcrum publicity!
First up: Our latest book to hit bookshelves is garnering some great publicity… Modern Homestead: Grow, Raise, Create (ISBN: 978-1-55591-748-7, $26.95) by Renee Wilkinson. Wilkinson was interviewed last weekend on the Joy Cardin Show on Wisconsin Public Radio about her blog, HipChickDigs.com, her homesteading philosophy, and her first book.
Wilkinson (above, with a bantam chicken), will be joining us at BEA next week to sign and give away free copies of her book on Thursday, May 23, and we’re sure she is going to be a huge hit! Look for Modern Homestead in bookstores and gardening centers near you to learn some great tips on raising ducks and chickens, to gardening on a small scale and with a small budget!
And… some more great publicity to end the week… Last Chance: Preserving Life on Earth (ISBN: 978-1-55591-717-3, $22.95) by Larry Schweiger was named the First Place Grand Prize Winner for Non-Fiction books of the 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. What an honor!
Schweiger, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation (above, in Alaska), speaks about the causes and effects of global warming on our wildlife, ecosystems, and human life, not just as a conservation leader, but also as a parent and outdoor lover. Last Chance is witty and engaging (e.g., “What Happens in Greenland Will Not Stay in Greenland”), while still being inspiring in the face of some daunting environmental science.
If you’re not familiar with the work the National Wildlife Federation, check them out here: http://www.nwf.org/. You can learn how to help wildlife in your own backyard and around the world by donating your time, money, or by becoming a member.
Congratulations to our inspiring authors and happy weekend!
