Hi Fieldstone Friends,
Happy May Day. You may have noticed that you have read nothing new from me for some months. (Or you may not have noticed since the absence of something is hard to find.)
I have an excellent excuse: for the past year Shyla and I, and our team (see below) have dedicated all of our waking, and some of our sleepless, hours to the creation of a new, and I think beautiful, Fieldstone publishing program: Fieldstone Earth.
We launched the first seven titles on April 22, Earth Day. These are comprehensive interactive guides in app form to Birds, Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians, Spiders, Insects, and Butterflies (though also insects — comprehensively treated). Putting these together involved our team members in Vermont, West Virginia, Maine, Toronto, and Ukraine.
We love what we have done so far, and are now into next steps: guides to Mushrooms, Trees, Wildflowers, as well as an entirely new series of guides to the garden, the first of which will be out in June.
Among our commitments are to publish a new nature or garden blog every week. Four of us: Shyla, Jim, Katy, and I will be writing those, each of us expressing our particular outlook on things. You'll learn more about each of our team members in the weeks ahead. We couldn't have gotten this far without their dedication and talent.
You can download the apps from the iTunes Store from your mobile device. Find them here.
Please let us know what you think. You can find us on Facebook and Instagram as well as on the iTunes Store. We accept gracious accolades, inciteful observations, and painful corrections alike.
We've been looking forward to this moment for a long time. Thank you for your words of encouragement along the way. And thank you for being part of our growing Fieldstone family. The adventures are just beginning.
Yours From The Field,
