Simon has just signed a two book deal with Orion publishing - one of the biggest publishers in Europe-  book one - Pigs in Clover that they have bought the rights to from his existing publishers, Watkins to be re-released under them - should be in the super markets etc in September as they want it to reach a wider audience and book two - the Sequel to Pigs in Clover that Simon is now writing - to be released in April 2015.  His first book, The Self Sufficiency Bible, from Window boxes to Smallholdings, will stay with original publisher Watkins.  Watkins have sold the Chinese rights of Pigs in Clover 1 to China until 2018 apparently when it will revert back to Orion....whatever that last bit means we are not too sure after all simon only wrote the book and holds the copy right!

Please, consider this a pre-order for PIC2 - if you need a proof reader, give me a shout - I'm a grammar-nazi!
