One of our favorite poems from a Breath of Home graces our pages at The Requiem Reader . It is quite appropriate for this time of year. Go check it out.
A week or so ago I posted a prospective cover (here) to our next release which will be out in time for Christmas (hint), in fact I am doing some final work on it today and next week. We have taken suggestions and worked a bit on it. I present it below. I am still concerned about the white print over portions of the painting, but feel overall this is a great improvement. More suggestions highly welcome.
I will be posting more about the book's contents and an excerpt over at the other site in a week or so. Get ready!
Finally, I mentioned in my last post getting abook via inter-library loan. There is another book I really crave, but am told books less than 2 years old can't be gotten via inter-library loan. I wanted to see if it was worth the $$ before purchasing as a reference book. It is Dirt Hog-A Hands On Guide to Raising Pigs Outdoors by Kelley Klober. I have his "Storey's Guide to Raising Pigs", which is the best I have on the subject. I think this new book-while I am sure contains much of the same information- is geared specifically towards the kind of pig raising we are engaged in. So I am just going to have to buy it myself. (I never knew about the "2-year" rule.)
As the rain pours down today, I am reminded how it wasn't just the pig manure that made our fall crop so good this year-it was God's rain more than anything.
Oremus pro invicem!
