(Ordering info is a ways below, since I’ve gotten SO many emails/questions…) AND- I’ll post some other stuff- REAL SOON as I don’t want these entries to simply be chock fulla’ lengthy blather about my book…(as the eyes of you readers already begin to droop….)
But…. so far, people have been SO positively receptive, to a book I was hesitant and nervous to put out there in the first place, that I’m already working on a tangent-follow-up book, and a mini-zine “TINY YELLOW HOUSE” (which I started long ago, but now feel inspired and compelled to complete). Additionally, I’ve almost repeatedly fallen over in excitement from support and positive reviews from the likes of all my small housing idols- Lloyd Kahn, David and Jeanie Stiles (buy ALL their books- amazing! Kahn’s too!), all-around great-guy and pallet-housing guru Michael Janzen, Gregory Johnson of the Small House Society(!) in Iowa, and from a large variety of blog-running people who have purchased my little hand assembled d.i.y. book. (I’ll eventually post some of the reviews and press reviews, have some radio appearances and print interviews on the horizon, AND am soon filming a short youtube video on my “Hickshaw”- a tiny-house rickshaw for hicks!- complete with stunts performed by myself!)
I’ve also been lucky enough to have high-caliber people/authors such as Mimi Zeiger, express interest in seeing the book- flattering, whether she/they review it or not. (Her work’s great- check out www.loudpapermag.com and she authored the ultra-cool book “Tiny Houses”).
More recently- THANKS so much to Amanda Kovattana over at http://dejavuconstruction.com (A cool eco/organization site and she’s VERY talented) who reviewed the book both for her site and for Energy Bulletin. She also loved the “Inverted A-frame” design/illustrations in my book, and has been scheming for the possible future construction of it! If she follows through, I can’t wait to see it!
Her new review/article can be seen here: http://www.energybulletin.net/node/51559
Amanda, you rock with the power of 48 vikings! (A real good thing). And thanks to all of you who have been incredibly supportive so far!
