I have a book!
Well, not really a book book, in that it's only been printed, not published, in the sense that there was no editor, gatekeeper, or ISBN number.
Viles Arboretum in Augusta.
My goal was to make the book both accessible to those with little or no natural history knowledge, but also interesting to those already familiar with the natural world. I'm not sure if I hit that sweet spot or not, but I had a lot of fun writing and illustrating it, and of course wandering the Arboretum for research. The books will be available in the Viles Arboretum gift shop very soon, if not already. I hope to have a reading and book signing event in the fall, about which I'll keep you posted. And if they become available for online purchase, I'll let you know that as well.
