The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Sapling Grove Secrets

Sapling Grove SecretsThe average reader may not know this, but my father is one of the founding editors of Sow's Ear Magazine, and his poetry has been published widely in other journals including Madison Review. This winter, I got to enjoy the treat of looking through his body of work in search of an ebook...or two, or three. And, in the process, I discovered that his short stories pack the same punch as his poetry. In fact, they remind me of a mixture between O. Henry and Wendell Berry, and I suspect that many of you will enjoy the farm and small-town focus of the four pieces I picked out to include in his debut work.

But don't take my word for it! Sapling Grove Secrets is free on Amazon today to give you a taste of my father's surprising short stories. If you like what you read, you'll make both me and Daddy eternally grateful if you take the time to leave a review. He's saving up for his annual banana split, and a few good reviews on launch day will make that treat much more likely to happen. Thanks in advance, and I hope you enjoy these stories as much as I did!
