First a note of background:
At the beginning of 2007 my book came out with the Sterling Publications company. They printed 16,000 copies and we sold them all. In 2010 the book went out of print- sad face. I made a digital download and a CD copy to keep the book alive since there were no used copies available- for less than a whole lot.
Just this month a fine company, Echo Point Books, has published a wonderful new issue of the book. The cover is new- and I like it better than the old one. The insides of the book are exactly the same as the original. It is a copy, so the photos are about 95% of the original quality. If you didn’t compare them to the originals you would never know that. The book is of the same high quality as the original- weighing in a 2 pounds.
Last time, I personally sold, signed, and dedicated 660 of the books. I have ordered a few to do the same with this nice new issue. If you are interested please go to my newly updated web site ( to get the details and order the book. It is amazing that it can sell for $30 with the production quality so high.
It was a good book- and it still is. I am a proud mama of this baby.

I have found your book at our local library and checked it out more than once.
Not sure if an author would find that a plus or a minus but it is nice quality.
I’ll bet you could write volume two ….....................

Mike- I love that my book is being used in libraries and schools.
I had considered writing another band saw box book- one that featured critters. I have a whole list of ideas and plans for boxes like the snail box and the armadillo box and Tim Crabbs dozing duckie box. It would have included a box turtle, of course.
