I'm excited to announce that
the final book in my Ultimate Guide to Soil series is now available for
This one is long and
in-depth but very heavy on the pictures so hopefully still easy to
read. In addition to rundowns on more conventional garden amendments,
I've summed up our experiences with bokashi, black soldier flies,
humanure, biochar, and much more.
Here are the buy links
in case you want to give it a try:
What early reviewers had
"Thanks to her Ultimate Guide to Soil
series, I am enjoying robust plant growth and harvesting gorgeous
vegetables and herbs from my garden." --- M
"I know more about composting and
soil amendments now than I did before reading this - and I've been
composting for 30 years, so I thought I knew it all!" --- Colin B. McGee
Thank you in advance for
any support, from buying a copy to telling a friend to leaving a
review. You are why I write.
thrilled to announce that my newest paperback is now live
The Ultimate Guide to
Soil isn't technically slated to be published for another week or so.
But if you preordered, your copy should be in your hands soon.
My official author
copies are still in transit (so signed thank-you books for contributors
haven't gone out yet). But I splurged and bought a copy on Amazon to
show off (with Punkin's help, of course).
The Ultimate Guide to
Soil is a hefty book, full of all of the tidbits I've learned over the
last decade about improving and maintaining soil in a no-till garden.
There are sections on soil testing, no-till management, and
remineralization, plus an encyclopedic overview of organic soil
amendments including everything from manure and straw to bokashi bins,
black soldier fly compost, and humanure.
Basically, if we've
tried it, it's in this book. And you know I like to try everything.
geared the book toward both beginners and advanced gardeners alike,
including highlights of my own garden's growing pains so you won't have
to repeat those mistakes. I also included my successes of course, along
with tips for turning problematic dirt into prime garden soil. Then I
rounded it all out with the experiences of other gardeners and a hefty
helping of library research.
paperback is live on Amazon and Barnes
and Noble, and
should be hitting bookstores and libraries soon. (If you don't see it
locally, be sure to request that your favorite establishment get a copy
If you prefer ebook
format, please be aware that this is the same book I've been
publishing in quarters over the course of 2016, so don't feel you have to
buy it again. You can save a
few bucks by buying the bundled version on Amazon, though, and you can also
download a free ebook copy on Amazon when you order a copy of the print
book. The bundle will be available on other platforms in a week or so
as well once it's been reformatted for epub.
I hope you enjoy The
Ultimate Guide to Soil and will consider telling your friends, sharing
the link on social media, or perhaps writing a review. Thank you so
much for your support --- you are why I write.
I've been amazed and
gratified by the public reaction to Half
Wolf, the first book in my Alpha Underground series. Over 6,000
sales and borrows in the first three months --- wow!
With so many people waiting on the sequel, I wrote as fast as I could
and got Lone Wolf Dawn out this
week. I've even marked it down to 99 cents for a short time as a
thank-you to my loyal readers.
Still not sold? Here are a few highlights from the early reviews:
suspense, and intrigue all in one book” — happyreader10
“Fun, exciting, thoughtful, suspenseful” — L. Dalzell
“An awesome power packed modern story” — Diana P
“I have never read a book that makes me feel so much a part of their
world.” — Celeste C. Crotts
“Rarely does a second book surpass the first, but this does.” — Amazon
The book is also FREE to borrow with Kindle Unlimited. Thanks for
reading, and be sure to drop by my main blog if you
want more frequent updates along with reviews of books I've read and
enjoyed. I'm glad to have you on my team!
The third book in my soil series is now live and the fourth
book is up for preorder! I hope you'll
take a chance on a series that has been described as "Easy, useful, and
Without further ado, here are the links to book 3, Balancing Soil Nutrients and Acidity:

a bit of random book news today. First, Trailersteading is now
available on all major retailers in ebook form (as well as on paper in
bookstores, libraries, and more). Here are some links in case you've
been waiting to find this crowd favorite somewhere other than on Amazon:
Second, look --- a pretty
new cover for The Ultimate Guide to Soil! I also just got word from my
publisher that this book is going to be translated into German, where it
will be sold by Mobiwell Verlag. Fun, huh?
My newest book, Half Wolf, is now live on Amazon and free to borrow via Kindle Unlimited!
This book is the first in a spinoff series, with a few of the same
characters who readers loved from the Wolf Rampant trilogy but with an
entirely new adventure. Round two is even more action-packed, romantic,
and character-driven than round one. So why not give it a try?
Don't have Kindle Unlimited or three bucks to buy a copy? You can also try your hand at winning a copy via this Amazon Giveaway. Good luck, and I hope you enjoy the ride!
techniques for real people" and "informational, actionable, and written
in a down-to-earth tone that is easy to read and understand" --- that's
how early readers are describing Small-Scale No-Till Gardening Basics.
This second book in my soil series left the preorder period this morning
and is now available for immediate download on:
Meanwhile, if you've
already tried book two and enjoyed it, I wanted to alert you to my
fan-only two-day sale on the third book in the series. Balancing Soil
Nutrients and Acidity just went up for preorder and you can nab it at 99
cents today or tomorrow before it goes up to its real price of $2.99.
So if you want
to learn about the science behind remineralization, along with
information on how to mitigate soil deficits and problematic pH using
chemicals, cows, goats, chickens, mushrooms, cover crops, dynamic
accumulators, and more, then here are the links for you:
Thank you so much for reading! You are why I write.
The print edition of Trailersteading is now live and I've been amazed at how
well this book has been received. After all, I originally envisioned it
as a bit of a joke. Why would anyone want to learn about our choice to
homestead in a dirt-cheap mobile home when they could dream about
strawbale houses or cob domiciles?
I didn't expect was the 150+ five-star reviews from homesteaders just
like me who were itching
for a less expensive and time-consuming alternative to the traditional
path of home ownership. Readers called the book "new and exciting," "a
groundbreaking literary effort," and "very informative," while several
mentioned that Trailersteading had inspired them to retire
early by embracing life within an old mobile home.
Want to see what all the fuss is about? Trailersteading should
now be available at your local bookstore or library --- if not, just
ask them to order a copy. And the book is also up for purchase on your
favorite online retailers, whether that's Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or someplace else.
I hope you enjoy the read, and a huge thank-you to everyone who has
already given it a shot! Your early purchases and reviews help my books
get out of the gate and ensure that Mark and I can continue to spend our
time regaling you with our hopes, failures, and successes from the tranquility of our permaculture trailerstead. Thank you for helping to make our dreams a reality.
I'm excited to announce that I have a new website
all my own! I'll be blogging about book recommendations, my
inspirations, and (of course) my own publishing news. I hope you'll go
check it out and let me know what you think.
The final book in the Bloodling Serial, Hair Apparent,
is now live! Or, for those of you who've been waiting for the series to
end before diving in, you can now read the entire novel-length tale in a single bundle while saving two bucks.
If you've enjoyed Terra's world, I think you'll enjoy this story about a
werewolf who was born in lupine form and never quite got
the hang of his humanity just as much. But don't take my word for it.
Here's what a few reviewers have had to say about the series:
"Tense, sexy, focused" --- Claudia King
"Couldn't be better!" --- CaroChel
"I wanted to know more about Wolfie
and this serial made that happen. My whole understanding of Wolfie has
changed since reading this along with my appreciation for the Wolf
Rampant series." --- Megan
Ready to read? As usual, you can consume either the individual
installments or the entire bundle for free with Kindle Unlimited. Then,
if you enjoy it, I hope you'll consider leaving a review since your kind
words keep me writing (and help other readers decide to take a chance
on an unknown author). Thank you so much for your help!
