Are you susceptible to bribery?

Wide distributionOur readers spoke and I listened. 20% of you prefer a retailer other than Amazon, so I'm slowly but surely moving my books to a wider distribution. To that end, Growing into a Farm is now available at:

$10 Root Cellar is now available at:

Homegrown Humus is now available at:

And I'm hoping I can bribe you to copy and paste any reviews you may have made on Amazon onto one or more of these platforms. Since I know the request is a bit annoying, I'm sweetening the pot by giving away a signed paperback copy of The Weekend Homesteader to three lucky winners. Just leave your review, copy the link, and input your information into the rafflecopter widget below. Thanks in advance for your help!

I long ago declared that I would not use Amazon as I feel it has put too many bookstores out of business. They make incentives for people to buy from them which may or may not help the consumer in the long run, as they want to use the incentives to purchase things that they think they want but do not need and spend money they should not be spending. I know this from some people I know. Keep up with the other options!!!

I hope you get more than six entries in this contest! Copying and pasting into Barnes and Noble and Google Play so far only took me a few minutes, and my computer is running super slow.

I also realized that I hadn't reviewed the last two yet, even on Amazon! Added to my to-do list.

Jake --- Thanks so much for taking the time to review! I always appreciate your thoughtful reviews so much. I have a feeling you're going to win a free book when the giveaway ends tomorrow...assuming you don't talk more people into reviewing and drum up competition. :-)
