The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

July edition of Weekend Homesteader

Weekend HomesteaderDid you ever wonder if the same mulch is appropriate for your peach tree and your tomato plants?  Have you been itching to create your own recipes?  The July edition of Weekend Homesteader covers these topics and more as it walks you through:

  • Cooking up a pot of soup
  • Budgeting your life
  • Mulching the garden
  • Freezing produce

As usual, Weekend Homesteader: July is available for just 99 cents in Amazon's Kindle store.  And if you don't have the spare cash, or just don't want to deal with downloading an app so you can read the ebook on your computer or phone, just email me and I'll send you a free pdf copy.

Weekend Homesteader paperback For those of you who'd like to help me out, reviews seem to be the most important way (beyond buying the ebook) to move it up in the rankings so that random strangers give an unknown author a shot.  If you get a chance, please take a minute to review the July edition after you read it, and I'm always looking for reviews of past ebooks, especially Weekend Homesteader: June.  Thanks for taking the time to make Weekend Homesteader a success!

I really want to help out by writing a review. However, I really hate data-mining, registering on websites, especially with major corporate behemoth like Amazon. I buy my books from Is there another way people could give you money for your e-books without using Amazon? I wonder if I might not be the only one (with the guilt of having read and enjoyed and benefited from your blog without having the opportunity to offer some dana) who really balks at Amazon.

Right now my choices are:

Sign up with Amazon to write a review 'cause I'd like to support her work.

Sign up with Amazon to get a buck to Anna 'cause I'd like to support her work.

Do nothing.

Any other ways to donate?

What would actually make me the happiest is if you emailed me to get a free copy and then left a review on Amazon. Right now, my goal isn't really to make money with these ebooks but to get them in as many hands as possible. That's why I'm selling them on Amazon instead of directly through the site --- I want to reach people who I won't touch by preaching to the choir. Reviews really help strangers decide to take a chance in that situation.

Of course, you'd have to make an account on Amazon to leave a review, and that might still give them more data on you than you want. If you're itching to donate, you can click on the store button on the sidebar and scroll down and click on the "donate" button, but the truth is that leaving thoughtful comments the way you do is a donation enough for us!

I really appreciate you putting so much thought into supporting us! :-)
