We’re in the last few days of the Death’s Garden Kickstarter. Only the book release party in a cemetery left to achieve.
Over the last 30 days, I have really hustled to get the word out about Death’s Garden Revisited.
In addition to the Facebook party and the AMA on Twitter, the contributors helped me put together a playlist of their favorite cemetery songs. You can listen along on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4S0255SPm7grf5NShTbLgT?si=ea4a5b5bb3d94d17
I wrote a post for E. M. Markoff’s Tomes & Coffee blog to explain some of the choices on the playlist: http://www.ellderet.com/emmarkoff-blog/2022/4/6/guest-post-the-deaths-garden-revisited-playlist-by-loren-rhoads
Jennifer Brozek let me stop by her blog to tell her how I fell in love with cemeteries: http://www.jenniferbrozek.com/blog/post/2022/03/23/Tell-Me-Loren-Rhoads3
Dr. Sharon Pajka hosted a Cemetery Happy Hour. A handful of Death’s Garden contributors created cocktails to celebrate their favorite cemeteries. Check out this very fun and short video: https://youtu.be/H5BN8WWZq-c
