Every farm needs three things to grow into a bountiful being, even my novel Arm Farm needed the seed, water and sunlight to blossom into sinewy arms which grew cases and possible case solvers. Just as each flower, animal and vegetable grow into something of value, worth and substance, Arm Farm needed all three elements to be what it is today.

The seed to how this all came to be: The Write-Brain Workbook: 366 Exercises to Liberate Your Writing

The water: each word I dropped to the page

Sunlight: you, my fans and future fans.

Take Hannah from UK for example:

She found herself lucky to be one of Arm Farm’s first reader’s and I was extremely lucky to have her do that for me. Since then I consider her my #1 fan. We met through her winning a copy of Brain Tales – Volume One through my friend Kelly Moran’s website giveaway site and have been friends ever since.

But I’m getting a head of myself and want to tell you how The Write-Brain Workbook: 366 Exercises to Liberate Your Writing planted the seed.

One of the many terrific exercises mentioned was to make a list of seemingly unrelated words that rhyme so I did. I actually followed this book in order and completely but what stuck was this image of an arm farm. With CSI and Bones being popular on tv and their discussion of body farms I decided to stick with the idea, using Arm Farm as the title.

And so Natalie Hartman was born and I was thrilled to get it in print and now ebook form for all to enjoy.

Thanks for reading,

Sarah Butland
