Happy Anniversary In The Garden With Billy: Part One

Almost a year has passed since the release of In The Garden with Billy: Lessons About Life, Love & Tomatoes. During that time I have logged a lot of miles and spoke to numerous garden clubs, book clubs and community clubs. I’ve also been embraced by booksellers. Love those independent booksellers.

A quick word about local bookstores: they are NOT dying. I laugh every time someone says that the written word is dead. Indie bookstores are doing well because they know that readers matter! Indies will survive. I believe it will be the small businessmen and women of America, those who understand the importance of personal relationships who will continue to prosper.Honestly, we all knew the big box would one day collapse. Let the revival of personal customer service that was crushed beneath the weight of BB stores begin.

Thanks again to everyone for reading. Thanks for emailing me, for coming to events, for supporting the written word. Much love and BIG hugs ! Now let’s look at some photos. Note: I won’t try to name everyone. With over 100 thousand photos on my computer, I somehow managed to lump a majority of them into a file named “writing events.”So much for my husband’s attempt at organizing. God bless his heart. I hope you enjoy Part One of Happy Anniversary In The Garden With Billy: Lessons About Life, Love & Tomatoes.

Renea Winchester can be reached through her website here. Her book can be found at your favorite independent book store. If they don’t have it in stock they will be happy to order it.

    So true, so true about the Indie bookstores! Just like the indie farmers and local businesses. It’s all up to us to vote with our pocketbooks for what we like; what stays and what goes. Congratulations on the 1 year anniversary to both you and Billy! Love ya’! -Val
