My friend Raven from Permies.com has helped promote quite a few of my books. She’s quite an accomplished gardener and farmer herself and recently sent me the following:

I thought of you because of bragging rights. You mention a few times that a
great reason to grow anything is bragging rights. Growing your own food is
one great way to earn bragging rights, pushing the zone and growing exotic

Right now I’m holding a kickstarter to pay for the printing costs. I would
love it if you could help spread the word.
Homegrown Linen: Transforming Flaxseed into Fibre.
If you still need convincing, there’s a great FAQ about zombies and the
apocalypse and how this book will help you survive such events.
