Book Description: Strawberries are big business in California. They are the sixth‐highest‐grossing crop in the state, which produces 88 percent of the nation’s favorite berry. Yet the industry is often criticized for its backbreaking labor conditions and dependence on highly toxic soil fumigants used to control fungal pathogens and other soilborne pests. In Wilted, Julie Guthman tells the story of how the strawberry industry came to rely on soil fumigants, and how that reliance reverberated throughout the rest of the fruit’s production system. The particular conditions of plants, soils, chemicals, climate, and laboring bodies that once made strawberry production so lucrative in the Golden State have now changed and become a set of related threats that jeopardize the future of the industry.

Book Description: Vince Lefebvre, a man of the 16th century, never believed in “Goblins or Ghouls”. So when a stranger crosses his path he is none the wiser as they supernaturally manipulate his life. He would like to think that his decisions were his own but after meeting a very powerful vampire, and even more powerful witch, he is unsure. Which proves you don’t have to believe in the supernatural to become one. Wilted, being the first of the Mother Earth chronicles, introduces you to a conglomeration of supernatural and mythological characters; leading you to the largest forced, paradigm shift the World has ever seen. “You opened up the series with a colorful humor that put me right into the garden with Dacian. The style of writing you have is so simple, yet so complex. There is an underlying tone that creates a sense of urgency to keep my eyes on the pages. I can feel that there is more than meets the eye.” Mindy Cole; Avid reader “I think Wilted pulls at the readers’ heart strings as a deep love story. Then haunts the mind as one is mesmerized into the life of a family man/Vampire. So anxious to get the next book.” Gloria Herring, Published Author, Austin TX

Book Description: This short, bonus story takes place ten years before the events of The Witching Pen Series. Fifteen-year-old Elena hides her magical abilities from everyone, except her best friend, Karl. Inseparable since they were very young, they've always shared everything together, including the darkest parts of their lives. Elena's beginning to realise that her feelings for Karl are growing into something more. But her mother's about to drop a bombshell on her – one that will change the course of her life, and heart, forever. Publisher's Notes: For fans of the series, this story includes two parts of Elena's past that were made reference to in The Witching Pen: 1) The moment that Karl turns up on Elena's doorstep having been beaten and 'jumped on' by his father and 2) "The Sex Talk" between Elena and her mother.
