Projects: Self-Publishing

IMAGENAMEHERE(Image: Doug Wilson, animator.

In the early days of printing, authors delivered their manuscripts to printers and the printers were book sellers. An example of today’s online version of this is to be found at

Authors do their own editing, typesetting and design then upload their .pdf files to Lulu who print books on demand. Authors then arrange their own book signings and other publicity.

Authors keen to self-publish should answer the following questions:

What is your Publishing Project?
What activities will help you to achieve it?
How much of each activity do you need to do?

and then:

Draw up a `to do` list for each activity.
Enter a time and date in your diary to action each outcome.

This `to do` list becomes your working tool which links all your activities together to bring about your publishing project.

The Good Life at HoBB Garden Grid ref. 273/02 [H27]

The Good Life at HoBB Garden Grid ref. 273/02 [H27]I think I’ve lost the label on these Raspberries somewhere. No idea now what they are called; some name like ‘Glen…’, but they taste great and I know we paid £5 for 35 plants at auction in one of our best ever ‘deals’ yet at Kingsland’s Wednesday Night Sales.

– If I spent less time writing this log, I’d be down there more often and might be tempted to lash out another five pounds.
As they are planted at the edge of our water meadow, they are always juicy and if I read up on ‘cuttings’, I should be able to propagate enough to have a raspberry festival ……….. plenty of light dustings of sugar and a specific cream we have found that is excellent made by Longley Farm.

If you want to know about the Good Life, it’s all about picking food immediately before you eat it.

Around October each year we go on fungi forays and have fantastic fry-ups. As natural re-cyclers of materials we have an affinity with fungi and simply love discovering them whether or not they are worth eating. We’ve been sent some information on the large number of edible species now available for home growing and we think we can set up the right conditions to ensure a fun fungi festival too!

I’ll return to add to this blog after we have had a go. If you want to put the wheels in motion yourself and would like to work alongside a couple of fun funky fungi partners, contact us and we’ll tell you all we know about the Good life of Fungi as well as Raspberries and Longley Farm cream!
