Moss Gardening Book -- SUCCESS! 0
THANKS to each of you who has bought my book, The Magical World of Moss Gardening. It all started here in my own moss garden. Soft cover versions are now in the 3rd printing. Hard cover books are already out of print (although I have some saved for my customers). I’m excited that I’ve finally received my first royalty check from Timber Press. I celebrated this momentous occasion with my best mossin' buddy, Leila, my dearest brother, Dale, and my precious mother, Rachel.
If you don’t have your book yet or want to get another one to share with a friend… and you want to show your appreciation and direct support of my mossy endeavors, then please place your book order for an autographed copy through my Web site. If you have found my book helpful, please take the time to provide a book review. I’m encouraging comments be posted on Qutee -- ?Moss Gardening Book. For those of you who have bought books through Amazon, a 5-star review will be greatly appreciated.
Timber to publish new moss gardening book 0
Needless to say, I am quite honored and excited to partner with this respected publisher. To share my passion and expertise with others has been a personal and professional goal. My book will answer key questions about “how-to” become a successful moss gardener. This 250 pp book will be loaded with pertinent info and enhanced by at least 200 impressive photographs. I hope my casual writing style will appeal to a wide audience (but I'll still be using some scientific terms for accuracy and clarification). Of course, lots of work lies ahead. Writing and print production will take well over a year. The editor has told me that the title will change several times before printing. So, expect my moss gardening book (by whatever title) to reach your local bookstore in 2015.
For those of you who know me personally, you'll realize this is a giant leap in my moss journey. I've paid my dues by researching topics and systematically conducting field experiments related to effective cultivation methods with various bryophytes, substrates, maintenance requirements and recommended watering regimes. I'm ready to share techniques so others can experience the joys of moss gardening. It's been a long trek but all my mossin' activities feed my spirit. Thanks to all my friends and supporters who have encouraged me to follow my mossy dreams!
Go Green With Mosses!
PS Keep following our blog. We'll be reaching out to other gardeners to share their own moss gardening experiences and publication-quality photographs for possible inclusion in my book.
