have just heard that at last Simons book The Self Sufficiency Bible (from window boxes to smallholdings) is out on kindle!  Came out last week but as usual the author is the last to know - publishers seem to think they are a necessary evil!

waiting for the last 12 months royalty statement from the hardback version any day now and that will include the figures for the paper back version that came out in New Zealand last year - didn't know about that either at the time!  So here's hoping that the kindle version does as well as the hard copy. Although this one went world wide straight away it wasn't released in the states but the next one which is to be published next year has already had the publishing rights bought by the states

Just heard that the Simons Book, The self sufficiency Bible, is to be re-printed in paper back next spring!  hard back version has done really well (hence the re-print) Advance all paid back to the publishers and very nice royalty cheque received

They have great hopes for the next book, Pigs in Clover, (not a "how to" book this time) which is also to come out in Spring next year.  Simon had to go for a meeting with Simon and Schuster sales team who were incredibly enthusiastic!  Pre-publication quotes are currently being collected - Len Goodman has agreed to give one which is great!

Another publisher has contacted simon's agent and commissioned him to do a treatment for three seperate books which are to form part of a series of books (3 to be written by him and 1 by another writer) which they are taking to the Frankfurt book fair - have seem the dummies of the books and they look fantastic.....if they are well received at Frankfurt Simon will get a three book deal......These publishers are one of the biggest in the world so we are holding our breaths at this end!

Thats brilliant news. Tell him that this is the first time in all of my life that I've ever known anyone remotely famous.

Thanks everyone.  If he gets the three book deal its HUGE for us and with the other two books, our pensions are sorted
