So, I found this new series called Chickenshit. I’ll just let the author, Amy Stinnett, tell you all about it. Go ahead Amy. 🙂
Chickenshit is a four–part series that follows a year in the life of Billie Hatcher, as she transforms from a Seattle urbanite to an Idaho farmer.
When her estranged father dies, Billie inherits the farm where she spent the first four years of her life. Even though she can barely tell one end of a chicken from the other, she just might make a go of it, with some help from her dad’s best friend, Elliot, and some caring friends and neighbors. But life as a small farmer isn’t always easy, and Billie finds that not all of her new neighbors are all that friendly. With her new girlfriend, Jodie, by her side, she faces down the realities of farm and small town life in hopes of turning her dad’s farm into a place she can call home.
Now that Billie has made her choice to run the farm, it’s time to roll up her sleeves and get to work.
Baby chicks and goats want to be fed. Gardens need to be planted and tended. And Billie seems up for the task.
As the farm teems with life, Billie goes after her chores with zeal and tenacity, as her dad did before her. But, unlike her dad, Billie’s no hermit. Before long, the farm has more visitors than ever, but the one person Billie wants in her bed insists on taking things slow, to grow their relationship from the ground up. Dates, day trips, and working with friends on the farm give Billie and Jodie time to get to know each other’s virtues and vices before they are in over their heads. Soon, Billie will learn that nature works on its own schedule.
