Hello! My name is Trey Watson and I made an intro thread about a year ago. I've been reading Permies on and off since then, most recently this excellent thread on permaculture in extreme desert (we have some property in West Texas).

I may have mentioned this in the intro threat, but I recently published a book called The Lazy Gardener's Guide to Easy Edibles: 25+ Edible Plants Anyone Can Grow. I think the book may be of interest to some here. The idea of the book is growing edible plants that need minimal care. Most of the book's content I learned by default (finding plants that were still growing and edible even though I neglected them); other parts of it I learned by intentionally neglecting plants. I know that sounds harsh!

Here's a quick trailer for the book on YouTube:



And here's a the cover of the book:



The print book is too expensive on Amazon for my liking...I'm working with them to lower the price and I'm working with Barnes and Noble to get the book into their stores. So that print price should come down. In the meantime, we will probably offer the print book for sale on the book website (The Lazy Gardener or on my main page at Legg Creek Farm

If anybody has a website where they post book reviews of gardening (or related) book, let me know and I can send you a copy of the book for review.

Thanks for reading!

Hi Trey;

I don't know if you are aware of our Book Promo program here at Permies. Basically, we set up a thread for the book, write a review, and run a contest for 3 people to win a book. Then you answer questions written to you in the appropriate forum for a week (Monday-Friday). At the end of the week, we pick 3 winners, and you send them each a book.

We are running a promo right now, that started today, for The Permaculture Market Garden by Zach Loeks.

Book thread with review

Welcome author thread

You can go to the market garden forum and see that people are starting threads, asking Zach questions. He will be answering questions in the market garden forum until Friday, then we'll make the draw for the 3 winners.

Does this sound like something you'd be interested in participating in? Authors have found that they make a lot of sales after doing this. People love to feel like they 'know' the author, and to be able to ask questions and generally get chummy.

Let me know if you're interested, and I'll get you on the list. We can do it quite soon if you like, after this current one is done.

Cheers
Tracy

Hi Trey;

Wonderful! It's really a great way to get the word out. I'll send you an email with all the info. Should I use the email in your profile?
