Hey Evereyone! I'm back to say Hi, and share with you the exciting news that I have finally published my first book called Earthship Chronicles, available right now for free on Kindle, and also available on paperback. Its on the last day of a three day free promotion so grab it whilst you can!

If you are thinking about one day building your own eco-home or want to live self-sufficiently then this book is for you! It is written for people who have little to no technical knowledge or experience. It is not only a great learning resource but also a very fun and exciting journey and story to read! I hope one day it can be you!

This book is many things. It is a fantastic learning opportunity as I delve into some of the theory and knowledge behind sustainable building and living. It also covers some technical aspects of building with my own pictures of the build and links to good resources for more in depth information. I share my personal and quite remarkable story that unfolded over 15 years and what I learned through my own experiences of eco building for my first time. I have learned a lot during my first and subsequent builds, and will share my best advice and tips with you so that you may one day be able to fulfil your dreams.

This book is also a special story full of great synchronicity, inspiration and magic. Those who dare to dream and follow their hearts will enjoy this book very much!

Can I ask a favour from you? It will help me SO much if you can help me! Would you please grab a copy for free and then leave a 5* review with a nice comment? It will REALLY help me to get noticed as even just a few reviews puts it ahead of most of the books on this topic. If you have read my Steem posts on my eco-building then you will know its quite the read!


Just head to www.Amazon.com and it will forward to your own country store. Then just search for "Earthship Chronicles" . You need to be on your own store for it to allow you to get it. Once you find it click BUY NOW (it will be free today), dont click READ for $0.00 as that is a kindle unlimited subscription.

Here are some quick links for many of you.

I'm doing OK! As many of you know I am taking a lot of personal time this year and have unplugged from the Internet as well as Steem to spend more time in my own space as I transition into new ways of being and living. It is very quiet, and sometimes quite lonely as I live alone on the side of a remote mountain... but I am learning to embrace it and accept it as a gift and great opportunity. It may take my whole life to 'find myself' but im determined to get there sooner rather than later!

I can feel a sense of positivity this year on the Innernet, and I think we all could use some of that this year after a pretty harsh 2018. Since i am mostly ignoring the news and media, and have deactivated my Facebook account it feels so much easier to see and feel what is really going on without all the distractions and noise. If you are also in a kind of transition phase then i wish you well for the journeys and changes that you want to see in your life. My last major transition phase was back in 2001 when i discovered Earthships! Who knows, if you read my book it could happen to you too ;-)

**Have a great weekend everyone, and don't forget it will REALLY mean a lot to me to have your review on this book!**

<3 alex

nice one, hope you enjoy.. !

Hey thanks, I'll look forward to reading this, although I'll save it for if and when I emigrate out of the UK... the planning laws here are so restrictive and land so expensive, building anything is just something I can't face!

Still, there are always other more enlightened countries.

·

thank you.. you know it really can be done in the UK, although it is a challenge for sure.. Earthship Brighton paved the way, and more recently i helped with Earthship Sheppey which also got full planning approval and even a negative carbon footprint!

You know I was actually going to go and help out with that Sheppey build, I'm from Kent, but i think their weekends just didn't match up with my free ones. It's impressive, but it's that larger and more expensive build from scratch that the planners would approve... my style would be to do a more 'Tony Wrench' model... there is almost zero chance of that. The Brighton Earthship, i did a permaculture course there! Not residential, so it's different. I know of another eco build in Forest Row attached to a Community Farm that the planners recently made the builders take down. They wanted to apply for retrospective residency status - refused!

The exception of course is Lammas in Pembrokeshire, but then you have to be running a land based business... whereas i just want to live in an eco dwelling and do my business online!

You're right it is possible, but on a cost-benefit analysis for me personally it's just something I've had to abandon!

I still love eco houses like yours though!

·
·
·

sounds like you did some research! Just so you know Earthship Brighton did satisfy domestic building regs even though the land didnt allow for it to bee residential.

anywhow, i did it in India for total peace and didnt have to explain a damn thing to anyone! ;-)

·
·
·
·

Good for you! Do you explain in the book the whole process of purchasing land in India, that is something that would really interest me!

·
·
·
·
·

ahh interesting question.. no i didnt discuss that at all! The bottom line is that if you are not indian you cannot buy land, end of! You need to partner with an indian and have a solid contract.. and even then it can go wrong.

I have not even a contract, but i do have a lifetime lease based on trust.. I have no security here and own nothing legally.. but that was the risk i was prepared to take to be able to do this here, and in the way that I wanted to.

OK thanks for letting me know! I have the feeling you'll be just fine!

First of all Heartiest Congratulations Alex for the Book release. It is such a wonderful achievement of your life sharing your own learning and experiences.
I missed the free copy but never mind I will get a copy soon on Amazon when I travel to India.
I want to make a lot of changes in my lifestyle but it is difficult in the middle east region with all the possible laws and rules to abide with. But yes another 3 years is my target when I shift back to India I am going to have a eco-friendly set up for my home as much as possible. I am sure your book will be of great help.

Hi Alex, I would so love to make use of this offer. Sadly it seems it's not available from Germany... :(
Your path is utterly inspiring, thanks for all you do and best of good luck to your efforts in building a new life!

It worked for me because I also have an amazon.com account from which I was directed to amazon.de and was able to download the e-book on my kindle.
But I think it´s even better to read it on my laptop because there the pictures will be in colour.

·
·
·
·
·

nice job likedeeler! cant believe amazon make it so hard to link your book!

·
·
·

Thank you for your help! After an hour of trying I eventually managed to switch to kindle.de and apparently got the book now. But can't seem to download it. How do I get it onto my laptop now any ideas?

·
·
·
·

Nevermind, I think I am getting there. Just never used Kindle before and not really keen on doing so. But the book will be worth it, thanks anyways for your help <3 <3

·
·

im praying from a review from the one any only likedeeler!

So glad I caught this in time! I've always loved your Earthship posts so definitely want to read this, will also leave a review asap and get a few friends to do the same :) All the best Alex!

·

thank you so much redrica! really means a lot to me! It is a good read ;-)

What a great offer to stumble upon! It is "purchased" and ready for reading. I actually went a tiny bit against my new year's resolution about not buying any new books before I have read the 18+ waiting to be devoured : But since it was free, I think I can get away with it. Look forward to learn about Earthships!

·

agreed, a worthy exception! hope you enjoy this epic story! enjoy!

Very cool @eco-alex !
I studied a bit of this via SuperAdobe structures. SuperAdobe is a form of earth bag architecture to build housing. Look forward to reading.

Peace and Prosperity

Nice! I'm so excited to read it.
I was gonna leave a 5 star review right away, but Amazon won't let me since I have not spent at least $50 there in the last 12 months. :-(

@eco-alex I thank you in You will teach us such a good books shares will be further divided by these books

Oh I meant to ask you if you can take some steem or sbd for your book somehow? I guess I won't be able to leave a 5* rating though if I buy outside of amazon.

·

I thought about it but since its only on amazon right now it isnt an option..also steem price is so low and sbd so scarce that i assume very few peeps would want to spend it... and yes indeed a review! Still no one reviewed me!

·
·

Ah... you have to give people a little time to read the book!!!

I almost bought it... I have to figure out this kindle thing. My wife knows more about it and she gets back Tuesday from a trip! Soon after, you'll get my review.

Makes sense what you said about steem.

Congratulation @eco-alex! I picked up a free copy just in time and passed the link on to my son who is interested in sustainable building. Right now he is working with passive house designs and I think this will really interest him plus after seeing that post with the drone shot of your earthship I wanted to know more. I'm just skimming through it then I
will leave you a review.
Thanks for this wonderful offer!

Hey @eco-alex first of all congrats for the successful challenge and definitely looking forward to reading the book!!! :)

Secondly I would like to introduce to you @Cleanplanet. An eco citizen rewarded act, feel free to look at it! :)

Thanks!

So nice to hear you are well Alex! I'm going to have get that book at some point for sure... I'm needing some inspiration for building these days!

Good for you on the unplugging!!! Be well

Pretty cool! I used to build those in the early 90s. Great to see you did not get ripped off by the workshops that they have at solar survival architecture. I to built a home recently although it's not as nice as yours I am blogging about it. Hahaha.
