Starting October 30th, you can bid on a one-of-a-kind copy of my book Fruitflesh, with a hand-decorated cover, over at the Heart of the Grove auction.

I received a bronze heart in the mail about a month ago, with the challenge to create some sort of art around it and send it back as an auction item. I realized that the heart fit beautifully on top of the pomegranate on the Fruitflesh hardcover--the stem end of the fruit flares from it like flames or wings--so I glued it on and added a bit more embellishment with a bronze paint pen. It was great fun to create the piece. And the proceeds go toward supporting the Open Grove, an independent, commercial free forum for health and well-being.
