While stumbling around the Timber Press site, I learned that a new peony book will be published on Dec. 4:

I have so many peony books from decades ago up to present, written about and by well known breeders, that I guess I will pass. Looks like a really good reference book though.

I'm excited about this. Heard about it from someone in our local peony society. Happy for Carol Adelman on the completion of what took a lot of work. I love reading peony books, both old and new. Hurray! Thank you Carol for putting this on here!

I will add that a friend recently published a children's book and had it on Amazon. Sold 88 copies in the first month and literally made $0.08 on each book (she pulled her book off as a result). She said "best selling authors" do well because they sell the volume needed to make some money from their book.

Hopefully they will offer it either through Timberland Press or Adelman's website. I'm happy to get a deal but especially when I know the author, I'm willing to pay a little more now that I know how it all works. Perhaps APS will carry it as well. I'll have to ask around.

Hm, I don't see how to order it from this page... I was thinking to order it for my friend as a present, have it pre-ordered from amazon, that's OK.

Here is the specific link to the book:

Carol, I found this link but still cannot find a way to order it. When I click on "Coming soon" it gives me a list of books with the peony book among them. Probably one has to have an account with the Timber Press to be able to order, it's my guess.

On the Timber Press site you can ask them to E mail you when the book is available , but you can not order it from them before that.

The book just arrived on time. The photos and print are of high quality. Haven't read in depth yet.
