Hi R. Ranson,
Thanks, I like your enthusiasm.  Please elaborate on self publishing and also I am interested in New Society Publishers.  I recall I have owned many books published by them but had not considered them.  

What is the budget for publishing in New Society versus self-publishing?  And a self-published book would also be a mostly self-promoted book too, right?  Basically I am not trying to make a living through writing, I just ended up writing this pretty extensive book on pawpaws and would like to earn a little extra income off of it.  Not looking to be a writer, per se.   Thoughts?

Hey folks,
I am about 99% completed with a fairly long (200 pages) and in-depth growers manual for the cultivation, use and marketing of pawpaw (Asimina triloba).  I live in the heart of pawpaw country (KY) and have active relationships with many of the top researchers and pawpaw growers in the USA, such as Kentucky State University, and I own and operate a nursery specializing in pawpaw trees and seeds (Peaceful Heritage Nursery).  So, that being said this book is accurate and well-informed and I think people will really like it who are interested in the topic.  What I need help with is PUBLISHING.  I tried Chelsea Green and got rejected, and as we all know people tend to say you've got to go to a lot of publishers to get published.  I'm published in several magazines, including Permaculture Activist (now Permaculture Design)  as well as other publications both online and in magazine form.  I don't mind paying a good amount to have a publisher that will market and sell the book themselves.  I'm NOT on a shoestring budget with this.
That being said, does anyone have any input about publishing a book like this?  I could sell a small amount of copies on our website but would like if there was a company that would handle most of that.  Any kind advice for a new writer?  Thanks.
