Ideas for Your Holiday Gift List

Thursday, November 24, 2016 22:47
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

With the official holiday shopping madness upon us, I hope you’ll indulge me in a little shameless self-promotion. I’d like to share my offerings for inexpensive books for the homesteading inclined on your gift list. If you’re like me, then you are looking for bargains that will be meaningful to the recipient, while avoiding the crowds and chaos of holiday shopping. Between Smashword’s easy gift giving option and the discount coupons listed below, you can do that.

In this post you’ll find a rundown of my new projects plus discount codes for all my books, both electronic and paperback.

Critter Tales Series was an experiment in turning a print book into an eBook. I prefer print, but a lot of people request electronic versions. The challenge was that the text file was too large for proper eBook conversion, so it became a series. Critter Tales lent itself quite well to this format, and it makes the stories and information available to someone interested in only one critter rather than all.


You can see all the volumes with links to descriptions here. I’m offering them at 50% off between now and Dec. 31st. Codes and links below.


The Little Series of Homestead How-Tos, How-To Goat Bundle #1 is my first eBook bundle. It combines four of my previously published goat how-tos for half the price, and I’m offering a 50%- off discount code on top of that.

It contains:

  • How To Make a Buck Rag: & other good things to know about breeding your goats
  • How To Garden For Goats: gardening, foraging, small scale grain and hay, & more
  • How To Mix Feed Rations With The Pearson Square: grains, protein, calcium, phosphorous, balance, & more
  • How to Get Cream from Goats’ Milk: make your own butter, whipped cream, ice cream, & more

Click here for details about the book itself, then scroll down to the bottom of this post for the code.

Volume 12 in the series

How To Draw Blood from a Goat: How to collect and send specimens to test for pregnancy, Johnes, CAE, CL, and more is my newest addition to The Little Series of Homestead How-Tos. It discusses types of tests, options for testing, costs, what you’ll need, where to get supplies, how to prepare, how to do the draw, how to safely dispose of used supplies, how to package your samples, what the results mean, and a list of tests, labs, and resources.

The above title links to its webpage, and you can get it for 50% off with the code and link below. I’m also offering codes for all twelve volumes in the series. For titles and descriptions, click here.

While I’m on a roll, also please consider my paperbacks:

Coupon codes below are for 30% off each title.

About the discount codes. I can only offer these for specific sellers, because not all sellers allow me to discount my own books. The eBook codes are good only at Smashwords, and the paperback codes are good only at CreateSpace. Titles below are linked to their sales pages, where you’ll use the code at checkout. Codes are good for as many copies as you’d like – no limit. Codes expire December 31, 2016.
