Today is publish day!

My most recent book is all about homesteading: How to Begin Homesteading – Start Small, Succeed, Expand! It even has a couple of blog posts from here included in it, but so much more. It is written for those just starting out as they decide whether to be hobby homesteaders, or partially self-sufficient, or completely self-sufficient. Practical advice from real knowledge.

This is three short books in one, each focusing on a different aspect of becoming successful in Homesteading. This book allows you to choose and use what you need –  whether you are dreaming of being a hobby homesteader or completely self-sufficient. 

The first section has what you should consider as you first start homesteading. You need to consider everything from who cares for the roads, to where your water sources are, to how you want to retire. The second section has a focus on incomes through your homestead. You may want a lot of diversified incomes, but this walks you through the process of choosing what will be best for you. The third section includes recipes that we have found among our favorites as we live the homesteading life. This is how we succeed at Second Time Around Homestead.

I have my children’s story available too, published this past winter. It has some chapters that focus on foraging, too:

Ever wonder how fairies really spend their days? Ever tame a dragonfly? Want to join a fairy picnic? Dive in for a close look at this group of friends as they grow up and discover their own special talents.

Join the adventures of these boys and girls growing up in The Meadow. Sometimes their adventures take them on boat trips or winter foraging in the forest, and plenty happens at home, too.

Each chapter is a complete story, but only a piece of the longer adventure.
