Some time in July, while I was busily working on other important RWC projects, I was suddenly hit with the urge to start something else. This is definitely not an unusual occurrence for me – and 9 times out of 10 it is simply my way of procrastinating; my way of avoiding the completion of important work (which I’ve determined is largely due to my fear of failure, if you wanna get all psychoanalytical about it! lol).
I’ll be the first to admit that for most of my adult life I’ve been a GREAT “starter” but a terrible “finisher” (or “closer”, in the spirit of making this into a nice October sporting analogy).
But this time was different!
Rather than simply luring me away, only to then lead me off on another wild goose chase, this particular “nudge” stayed with me, and I kept running with it (still not 100% what was going to come of it). Days turned into weeks; weeks turned into months – and still the writing continued! The result, of course, is an eBook called “My LIFE with Worms: Thoughts on Passion, Purpose…and Vermicomposting“.
As I mentioned in a recent post, what started as the “story” behind the creation of the Red Worm Composting website and my vermicomposting journey in general, gradually evolved into quite a bit more (as the title of the book might suggest). While I was writing, it suddenly dawned on me that the last ~ 10 years (how long I have been vermicomposting) has been a hugely significant decade for me in general. Is easy to lose sight of these things while we are busy “living life”, so having the opportunity to reflect on everything has certainly been a valuable experience.
In my mind, the book is ideally suited for those who:
- have enjoyed reading my writing here at RWC and are curious to learn more about my worm composting (and life) journey
- have an interest in the entrepreneurial side of vermicomposting
- have a “soul searching”/personal development side
- just generally want to support the future development of RWC and related projects
It isn’t really well suited for those who:
- are looking for practical information about setting up and operating a worm composting system
- are looking for in-depth “step-by-step” information on how to set up a worm composting business
- are really put off by my goofiness and general writing style (haha)
“OK, OK – so what’s the dealio, Bentley??!?!?”
Early next week, barring the arrival of our baby over the weekend (lol), my plan is to start with a one week launch special for my email list subscribers. All list members will have the opportunity (for one week) to purchase the eBook for ~ 50% off my planned blog launch price. So if this DOES seem like something you might be interested in, and you are not yet on the list, please be sure to sign up fairly soon.
Just as a reminder – I did include some info about the main sections of the book in a recent blog post (down near the bottom of the post). I will certainly try to provide a decent overview on the actual order page as well (once it goes live next week).
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to leave a comment here or send me an email.
UPDATE (Nov. 8th/10): The email launch has wrapped up (thanks again to all those who purchased the book!) and My LIFE With Worms is now publicly available.
