I’ve posted several times excusing the relative inactivity on the blog recently, blaming factors including our relocation to Somerset and fatherhood. However, I can now reveal the main reason:
Vegetable Growing – A Money-Saving Guide, by me, Jono Stevens, in shops May 4th or available to pre-order on Amazon now.
I’ve uploaded the introduction to give you an idea of what’s in the book, and should your interest be sufficiently spiked, you can download it by clicking here.
I’m really, really excited to have been given this opportunity by the lovely people at Michael O’Mara Books, and writing the book has been a wonderful trip down memory lane, recalling all the tips I’ve learnt and the adventures I’ve had since first starting to grow veg a decade ago.
The book is a culmination of my blogging to date, and for that, I really want to thank you, the people that read this stuff I post, for making the blog popular enough that some actually think it’s worth turning into a book. Thank you so much also for the comments, the likes, the retweets, the emails, and the visits. I know I don’t always get around to replying to them all (I’m working on that), but each one means a lot to me.
I never in a million years thought I’d become a published author when I posted the first RMS blog seven years ago, and even if the book suffers a mass Alan Partridge style pulping, I’ll always be very proud.
And if you do happen to find yourself perusing a copy, I’d love to hear what you think.
As always, thanks for reading and happy gardening.
