In case you haven’t heard, I’ve recently published a short work of staggering hilarity (or mild chortles, depending on your bent); the new ebook Some of My Best Friends Are Plants is FREE this week on Amazon (04/23/2013 – 04/27/2013)! So hitch up your laptop and drive it over to Amazon for your free copy. At the time of this posting, all two of the reviews are positive and don’t say anything about spelling errors or falling asleep on one’s Kindle, so consider that a good sign.
This is the first time I’ve offered up one of my ebooks for free so shortly after publication. I’m not sure what this means. In the event I’m making a huge error, I’d suggest you go right ahead and take full advantage of it, don’t worry about my feelings, no, really don’t. Just grab the puppy. While you’re at it, let your friends know. Family too, it’s important to share things with family (yes, even Aunt Ellen. She doesn’t mean to be that way.)
What’s the memoir about? Me and weeds and plants and horrible gardening techniques and experimenting with herbs in my house and getting lost in the woods. Here is the book’s description as read on Amazon:
Having a relationship with plants isn’t always easy. Just ask Diane. She never would have guessed her humble beginnings as a child weed picker would help prepare her for the life of herbalism and botanical bliss.
A self-proclaimed “lousy gardener,” she admits her friendship with all things green and leafy isn’t always glamorous. There are unattractive flower beds in her yard. Weeds take prominence in her landscaping. And her vegetable gardens look more like uncontrolled Amazon underbrush. But as long as she’s surrounded by plants, she’s happy.
In this new memoir by bestselling Kindle book author Diane Kidman, readers will get a personal look at her funny but flawed relationship with plants. From messy herbal experiments in her kitchen to getting lost in the woods without snacks, this fast-paced read will keep you laughing.
Includes a bonus section of Diane’s recipes and remedies from the Herbs Gone Wild series, Teas for Life, Smoothie Power, and Nature to the Rescue.
So there you have it. My new short memoir, free. Perfect for reading while stuck in traffic, at the doctor’s office while dressed in a paper robe, or in a chair in the sun sipping margaritas while being served by a large man named Hans who you’re pretty sure has a thing for you. Any of the above, really. It’s your book now, after all.
