June is Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month

In the United States, June is designated as National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month, which promotes healthy eating and tasty fresh and local foods. Fruits and vegetables are celebrated for their nutrition (bell peppers have more vitamin C than oranges), types and varieties (there are about 7,500 apple varieties worldwide), and cooking versatility.

Why don’t you participate this month by trying a new vegetable or fruit, growing some veggies in your home garden, or visiting a local farm market (they should be getting locally-grown produce soon). Here’s a handy link from the USDA to help you find a farm market in your area via ZIP code: https://www.ams.usda.gov/local-food-directories/farmersmarkets

Indie Author Day 2018

Happy Indie Author Day!

3rd Annual Indie Author Day is today, October 13th 2018. Indie Author Day connects local and indie authors to libraries and other organizations for a day of education, networking, book promotion/ signing, and more.

I will be joining 40 other local authors at the downtown central library in celebration for this day. If you can’t stop by, support your favorite indie authors by shopping at a local bookstore or on indiebound.com
