Passing on knowledge for freedom

When you decide to start raising meat rabbits, there is a lot of information you need to process before you get started. You want to make sure that you have all the information you need in your head and at your fingertips so you know just what you’re getting yourself into. You wouldn’t bring home a goldfish from the pet store without an aquarium and food. And you also want to know what sort of water you need to put the fish in, how often to clean its tank, how often to feed it, what sort of stuff to put in the tank for fun — and so on.

I wrote Raising Rabbits to Survive a few years ago after I started raising meat rabbits myself. It seemed like there was tons of information out in the world for pet and show breeders, but very little about those who had decided to break off into homesteading or small-scale farming practices. Other books focusing on homesteaders mentioned how great rabbits were but they didn’t say much about what to do when your rabbits got sick and only skimmed over basic care. So I decided to venture into the world of ebooks and put something together myself.

The first version was only 45 pages- and it was all meat (pardon the pun). But I wasn’t convinced it was really finished yet…so I kept working on the ebook. I added to it and nutured it…and before long it was over 80 pages. I’d added new information about the best meat rabbit breeds available (for a total of 19 profiles) and created a resources section to help new breeders find their way.

Then I created new partner books to go with it. The first version included a collection of over 75 rabbit recipes that helped me get through some of the crazy moments when I just had more rabbit meat than I knew what to do with. It happens to all of us…especially if we forget about planning ahead.

When I started the second version of Raising Rabbits to Survive, I also spent months putting together a breeders list of rabbit breeders across the US because I had so many readers requesting help with finding a breeder. (I’m always available by email to those who purchase my ebook whenever they have questions or concerns.)

Every time I get an email from someone who has bought my book and found the courage to start on (or expand) their journey into self-sufficiency, my heart swells. There is nothing I like better than to know that I have passed on some of my own knowledge to help another family grow and flourish. I hope that someday, gardening and homesteading will be the norm in households — not just a novelty.

    I would like to purchase these books so I have them in my library instead of ebooks. Is that possible?

    I’m hoping to release them in a printed format sometime before the end of the year.

    I have not seen this in your letter. Hay is being treated with a chemical that is killing rabbits that are given it to nest and feed. The hay smells like a chemical. It is a preservative. You may want to alert all of your readers about this so they can make sure this does not happen to them. I lost a momma bunny and her 12 babies. The man I got the hay from did not know and he lost many of his rabbits too.

    It would be great if you could send me a link to an article about this. I didn’t hear about this issue at all.

    I would also like to purchase your books (hardcopy). Is this still on your agenda for this year (2011)?
    Also, is it possible to print specific pages from your ebooks ? I’m not to familiar with ebooks.
    Hardcopy incase the SHTF.

    I wasn’t able to accomplish the publishing in 2011, but I am going to try to get that done by mid-2012! :)
