Introducing Book 4 in The Little Series of Homestead How-Tos: How to Mix Feed Rations With The Pearson Square

With every eBook I write I learn a lot. It's not that I don't already have a basic grasp of the subject matter, but as I seek to research and collect the most relevant information, I either find missing pieces to my own puzzle to understanding, or somehow the bigger picture becomes clearer. This newest book in the series is no exception.

Homestead How-Tos

I'd also like to mention that with each new eBook I publish, I update the others. This is to keep the series titles and links up-to-date, but it also lets me make corrections (thanks Anna!) or updates on information. I'm not sure about Amazon, but at Smashwords, once you've purchased a book the updates are available as part of the purchase price.
