Easy Growing Publication Day

Tomorrow is the big day! Tuesday, Feb 7 is the official release date of my new book Easy Growing: Organic Herbs and Edible Flowers from Small Spaces. It’s the day that the book shows up on store shelves, pre-orders are shipped, and the online ordering button is switched from “Pre-Order” to “Order.” I’m not yet aware of all of the stores that will be carrying it, but we have made a list of the major online sellers here. Electronic versions of the book will be released in the near future.

In case you’re wondering about its contents, a “Look Inside” feature has been added to the Amazon ordering page, we have made a short Show and Tell video (seen above), and sample pages have been added to the book’s website.

In anticipation of its release, we have also added a number of printable downloads to the website that are related to projects contained within the book. For fun, I made a bonus pdf of a recipe (Spicy Blue Basil Vinegar) that had to be cut from the final print due to space considerations. I know that handfuls of fresh garden basil is a distant dream unless you’re in the southern hemisphere, but I do urge you to make herb vinegars (any herbs will work) when you get the chance. They’re a good way to add some fresh herbal flavour to winter meals. We’re currently enjoying the medley of vinegars I made last fall.

I’m going to be on Martha Stewart Radio tomorrow morning, Tuesday, February 7 at 10:30am EST to talk about growing herbs as well as some of the recipes in the book. If you have satellite radio, you can tune in to hear it at Sirius XM 110.

While I am on the topic of book releases, here’s a peek at the German translation of Grow Great Grub. I can’t wait to see it printed.

  1. Congratulations Gayla! Your previous book Grow Great Grub was a real catalyst to get me started in gardening. :) Love that book. Can’t wait for this next one!! Thank you for all the inspiration and help!

  2. great! let’s see how long it takes amazon to ship preorders to germany! ;-)

    btw: is that a new cover for the german edition of “grow great grub”? bassermann still shows the other one on their website…

  3. So excited for this book! I may have to pop my head in at my local Barnes and Nobles and if they don’t have it I’ll be ordering it from Amazon. Congrats on the new book!

    • My Barnes and Noble had one copy of Grow Great Grub, but didn’t have Easy Growing. So I ordered a copy on Amazon yesterday and should be getting it in the mail tomorrow. I can’t wait!

  4. Congratulations! After seeing this, Amazon sent me a message that they shipped my copy! Also, love the music- is it Django Reinhardt or maybe John Jorgenson? Love Gypsy Jazz!

  5. free shipping, yes! following authors from the other side of the ocean can be quite pricey, I think I’ll get all three of your books while I can enjoy free shipping!

  6. I don’t know what to say other than how excited I am to read this book and the usual fanboying. You hinted at the book at Art in Bloom (where I first learned you pronounce basil different than me) and have had so many questions about it.

    If I can get anyone to drive me to a bookstore (do we even have any left around here) I’m going to get the book today. Have I mentioned how excited I am about the book?

  7. Congratulations! This just reminded me, I was visiting my sister in BC a couple of months ago, and saw your book on a shelf at Chapters. I had no idea it was so successful. Even though I don’t really know you, I’ve been reading your blog for a few years now, and I was pretty proud of you!

  8. Flipping through your book for us is a wonderful idea. I felt like I was at the book store and those were my hands, yet I’m sitting in my thermals at home. Nice. Good way to sell your book. Keep up the great work!

  9. Yay! I don’t know how I’ve managed to go for so long without your books in my library, but I righted my wrongs tonight and ordered all three on Amazon. Can’t wait ’til Friday so I can get my mitts on ‘em and start planning my gardens this weekend! Congrats, Gayla – it looks beautiful.
