    Martha Ezzard's memoir about the Ezzards' pioneering vineyard venture which won the 2014 Georgia Author of the Year award, continues to attract press reviews and speaking engagements.

    "Opening Martha Ezzard's The Second Bud is like popping the cork on a bottle of fine wine: the more you sip, the gooder it gets. Forget all the glamorous, foo-foo crap you've ever heard about owning a vineyard; growing wine is hard work and so are the challenges the author and her husband face. So lush is Martha's telling that the reader is caught up in the fragrant, beautiful landscape of the vineyard without ever having set foot on the soil." Nancy Stephan, Memoir/Autobiography Judge
    While traveling with Martha from Denver, Colorado to Atlanta and finally full-time to Tiger, be prepared for detours that will yank your heart strings and strike your funny bone... John Shivers, Georgia Mountain Laurel, October 2014

    Read the complete review here on pages 16-17.

    "In grape growing a second bud sometimes comes along to replace a first that has fallen victim to late spring frosts. As a metaphor for survival, perseverance and unexpected growth, it's pretty darned good. As the title of Martha Ezzard's book, it's perfect." Jill Vejnoska, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    Martha Ezzard's book, THE SECOND BUD; DESERTING THE CITY FOR A FARM WINERY, is available in the Tasting Room, Fox Tale Book Shoppe in Woodstock, in Prater's Book Store in Clayton, Dahlonega's Naturally Georgia, and independent book stores throughout the southeast as well as The Tattered Cover in Denver.

    In the Atlanta Metro area, the book is available at the Decatur Sherlock's/Cook's Warehouse, Eagle Eye Book Store in Decatur; A Cappella Books in Atlanta and The Book Exchange in Marietta.

    Bragg's new book,
    Jerry Lee Lewis, His Own Story, based on hundreds of hours with the most colorful Rock and Roll star of all time, is a compelling true story, one only Bragg could be trusted to reveal.
