Egyptian onion giveaway 2015

Egyptian onion top bulbs

It's that time of year again --- when I fulfill my end of the coevolutionary bargain with our perennial vegetables. In other words --- several readers will get free Egyptian onion top bulbs this month in order to turn their garden into a delicious place year-round!

Jaguar at the PortalWant to enter the giveaway? I'm keeping it simple this year. Book sales fund postage for all of our giveaways, so all you have to do to enter is to help push our books along. Most relevantly, Aimee's newest novel, Jaguar at the Portal, just went live today at 99 cents (and is also available for free borrowing if you have Amazon Prime or Kindle Unlimited). I'd love to help the title launch with a bang rather than a fizzle. Buy or borrow a copy, then click on the proper giveaway button below to share the first word of chapter 10, and you've got a good chance of having a free box of onions arrive on your doorstep next week.

Of course, I realize that many of you aren't interested in fantasy. So I've also included an option of helping promote my non-fiction books (or any other Wetknee Book). Reviews make or break our titles, so if you've bought (or downloaded a free copy of) one of my books in the past but never got around to leaving a review, here's your nudge to do so. Leave your honest review on Amazon then put the link in the widget below.

I know I have at least five boxes of Egyptian onions ready to wing to a new home this month, but it might turn into more once I sort through my basket. Thanks so much for helping our books reach a wider audience, and I hope you enjoy your new perennial vegetables!

I got some of Anna's onions last year, and they're growing out in our hugel swales. I expected to get a couple of sets, and she sent a bulging box of them.

Good deal!

Ken --- I'm so glad to hear they're doing so well for you! That's the great thing about Egyptian onions --- they nearly always manage to thrive, despite our best efforts to kill them with neglect. :-)
