Why would you mount solar panels flat on the side of your power shed? I get asked this question from time to time when someone unfamiliar with, or just getting started with their solar power project sees a picture of my solar shed (pictured above). I do explain this in my book Going Off The Grid, but with a recent snow storm the above picture will make more sense than just reading about it.
I’m proud to announce the third book in the Going/Living Off The Grid series is now available! This is my first traditionally published book with Ogden Publications, which is the publication arm of Mother Earth News. Mother Earth News was fantastic to work with, and did a great job with this book. As you can see from the title – The Beginners Guide To Living Off The Grid: The DIY Workbook for Living The Life You Want, this is an A-Z book for planning your off the grid dream. This was a book I wanted to do for a while, but just wasn’t sure how to go about it. After discussing my ideas for a workbook on the subject Mother Earth News really liked the concept and the project was born.
As I mentioned a couple weeks ago I’m working on a lot of new projects for 2019. One is acting as a consultant and contributor with thriller author AC Fuller. We have been working 0n a new nine book novella series, which we hope to release all nine this year if all goes well. So what is the series about you may ask? Well, that is a secret for now, but the first book is done, and if I may say so myself it is darn good! We are still trying to figure out how these are going to be published, which will determine the rollout and time of release. Of course those of you who are subscribed to my newsletter will be the first to find out, as I will post on the blog and send out in an email to my subscribers. Adam (AC) and I have big expectations, so there is a good chance this will not be the last project we will be working on together.
I have a few updates I will share next week on the blog, and I think some of you are really going to like a few surprises I have in store!
But first, I wanted to remind my followers, and anyone who is interested in seeing me live in the flesh at my first speaking engagement for 2019. In addition to my presentations, I will be signing books at the event, and be available for questions. It will be at the Mother Earth News Fair in Belton, Texas on February 16 – 17. I will be speaking both days, on Saturday the workshop will be:
It is hard to believe it has been two years since I released my Amazon Best Selling book Going Off The Grid, and I started my off the grid project nearly six years ago. Currently, I’m working on the accompanying workbook for Going Off The Grid and Living Off The Grid. I think it is a perfect fit for these books, as it takes you from the research and information phase to planning and budgeting your off grid project. Below is the description and what Living Off The Grid is about:
