Bloggy Book Tour: Day Three and a GIVEAWAY

April 3rd, 2014 § 18 comments

Book CoverWell, well. Here we are! Bloggy Tour Day Three! The book has made its way down to Georgia where Ellen Luckett Baker’s blog The Long Thread is chock full of sewing tutorials and crafty ideas. I’m especially excited about this since one of her amazing BOOKS is my go-to guide to funky sewing projects. You can find her review of my book right HERE. And, look what I found on NY Metro Parents today: THIS! Very exciting. And on Inhabitots, lookee HERE! And I know for certain YOU are out there spreading the word, since Amazon book sales have skyrocketed this week to the top 1% of Amazon book listings. Holy moly! But, why so quiet? Don’t you want me to know you’re here? I’m not so scary, really.

And so, I invite you to join me. You may secretly think you don’t have much to offer, but you do. Write to me. I want to hear from you. And I will make you a deal. You see, we had this smallish party the other night at THIS PLACE to celebrate the book’s BIRTHDAY, and at that party each guest walked away with one of my BOOKS and a PLANTABLE BOOKMARK made by my friend Jamie—upcycled paper embedded with a mix of organic wildflower seeds. And guess what? I have five extra bookmarks and ONE BOOK looking for good homes—just itching to be put to good use in warm weather. But here’s the catch—you need to write a simple comment below this post about how you cannot contain your excitement about doing a dirty project in my BOOK. That’s all. By the way, if you are already convinced that you won’t win this GIVEAWAY, you can go directly HERE right now to purchase one. Still, it would be nice to hear from you.

You have just TWO WEEKS to enter. And on Friday, April 18th I’ll randomly select SIX lucky winners from the bunch. Good luck! And, from now on, don’t be so quiet. I know you’re out there rooting for me.

Congratulations to Mossy reader Mary Yockey for winning the big giveaway–a free signed copy of “This Book Was a Tree”–And congrats to 5 other readers for winning handmade plantable bookmarks: Sarah, Meg, Vasia, Shannon, and Leigh! I will contact you ASAP and send them off right away!

    So glad to have found your blog today – my family is – as of today – a homeschool family ( eek!) and your book looks like a fantastic inspiration for our nature studies!

  • deb says:

    thank you for the chance to win a copy.

    When we get back home in four months, I will have to order your book! Looks like a great one to have. I do hope to make some (wild) bee homes. Just today we had a bumblebee buzz us as we were watching what’s happening with some frog eggs. The birds were chirping up a storm, and then we found, on this colder-than-before day, a lizard on the sidewalk as we were coming back home. It was very slow. We tried to warm it up in our hands and then moved it to a grassy area off to the side, and put some more grass on it, a sort of home for it. Overall, it was a great walk after dinner, and just because my older one wanted a branch with green leaves on it.

  • Rhonda Mills says:

    What a marvelous idea you’ve had! Your book seems the perfect inspiration for those of us looking to pass on the love of the outdoors to our children, grandchildren and even a few grownup friends!

  • Shannon says:

    I grew up in an UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve (Check out the Bruce Peninsula if you ever come up to these neck of the woods, It will not disappoint!) and now that we have a daughter and raising her here, we want to pass on the same moral compass and the same love for our environment. This book would come in handy when I am up against a wall (Toddlers will be toddlers)

  • Mary says:

    Thank you for writing this amazing book! Your book has inspired me to launch a One Book One Summer program at the middle school where I teach. It will help nurture our students and families to grow into more compassionate and active global citizens.

  • Denise says:

    I’m so glad to know about your book and blog! Looking forward to reading both–for my own daughter and for the families I reach through the Rye YMCA’s Kids Outdoors! newsletter!

  • Mary Jane Silva says:

    Wow. That book sounds very astounding and promising. It sounds really cool because I love arts and crafty books and because this book said that we can be reconnected to our nature – which is totally cool, because I support Green stuffs. Ooooh, I really wish I could have a copy of this. Anyways, it’s very cool book!

  • Meg says:

    So glad to have found you via Small Measure – living on the West Coast, spring comes early and so does the itch to ‘get dirty’! Interested to see what projects you offer up as inspiration! Many thanks.

  • Chelsea W says:

    I love the sound of all the nature inspired projects!

  • Nadia says:

    Hi Marcie! I found your blog through my local newspaper and I’m so glad I did! As much as I love the outdoors I really don’t spend much time outside “getting dirty” and I want to change that. I have two boys, one of them loves being outdoors, the other one not so much. I’m curious about what new ideas and projects you have to reconnect with nature. Looking forward to reading more of your blog 😉

  • KJozsa says:

    I have always wanted to make a sundial! This is my big chance! The Spring of the sundial!

  • Patricia Azarcon says:

    Wow I really love it! I want to win a giveaway!!! Lovely book by the way 🙂

  • Marcie says:

    Thank you to everyone for all your kind words! I am grateful every day that I have such tremendous support on this little blog. I wish I could send every one of you something special for taking the time to write, but I cannot. Via, I have selected 6 winners from the above bunch (1 book, 5 bookmarks).
