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

See your name in print (and win a t-shirt)

Store drinking waterI'm going to be writing like crazy over the next few weeks, so lunchtime series may be a bit sparse.  That means it's your chance to write in rather than just reading!

To date, Weekend Homesteader is chock full of photos of me and Mark (and Huckleberry and Lucy), and it could use some diversification.  As you pored over my monthly ebooks, did you say, "Hey, I have a better system than that in operation in my garden!"   Do you have some great photos of a kill mulch, a rain barrel, a homemade worm bin, a family canning session, or anything else in the ebook series?  Action photos with people in them (or even chickens or dogs) get bonus points.

If so, email your photos (one per email please) with the legalese at the end of this post to  A short writeup to explain your photos is great, but not mandatory.  If I choose to include your photo (and/or writeup) in my book, I'll credit you right there in black and white and will send you a Walden Effect t-shirt.

Please include this text in your email to cover my publisher's butt:

This email shall constitute an agreement between you and Anna Hess for non-exclusive use of your photo and text in the book tentatively titled Weekend Homesteader.  Skyhorse Publishing will publish this book in 2012. You agree that you shall receive no compensation for your contribution.

I'm looking forward to seeing some ingenious designs!

Our chicken waterer makes chicken care easy enough to fit the Weekend Homesteader's schedule.
