A new backer for my Kickstarter campaign!

Awesome … I now have 16 backers and I am near 10% of my goal!

We can do this!

Please, if you can back it please back it and spread the word … so I can stop these posts!!!


Just watch the Trololo guy and know that we can all do this together!

More Muckville Kickstarter campaign links

Here are a couple of other Muckville Kickstarter links to take note of.

First, this is a podcast interview with Dr. Wright on blog talk radio about my project:


This is a link to a Crowdfunding Discussion Forum thread about my project. Feel free topmost any comments or questions you may have:


And finally, once again, here is a link to my campaign!


I humbly request your generous support and spreading the word about my project.

To those that have already backed me and spread the word you again receive my incredible gratitude and my sincere apologies for having to read this over and over and over again.

The rest of you have the power to make me stop … by helping me reach my goal.

Now, watch this and get inspired and go chase a chicken in honor of my Muckville Kickstarter campaign:

Update on Kickstarter campaign for Muckville

A brief update on my Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to pay for an editor for my farming memoir “Muckville: Farm Policy, Media and the Strange Oddities of Semi-Rural Life.”


Okay, we are at 15 backers, $492, which is close to 10% of goal! A good start but I need a great deal more help. Please consider backing my project and spreading the word about it. My memoir is all about what is involved in being a small family farmer. It also details my wife and I’s years of experiences working on public policy issues connection with farming. What I detail you can use as a roadmap for your own situation and cause!

And to those that have already backed it, thank you!

Remember, Kickstarter is all or nothing! And the best way to get me to stop posting this crap is to back my project and help me reach my funding goal!

Kickstarter Project Update!


Muckville: a memoir of the public policy life of a farmer!

 An inside look at a farmer’s fight to influence ag policy in Washington DC and the oddities of life that happen along the way.


We’ll at the start of DAY 4 of my Project I now have 10 backers and have reached 5% of my goal. A great start!

I found out yesterday on the Kickstarter website, under the section for staff picks for the publishing section my project is 9at least at the time of this posting) their top pick!


Now I need your help to keep things moving! It won’t remain a top pick for long if it doesn’t continue the momentum. Eight of my backers are friends while two are strangers.

The added bonus to this project becoming successful is that I will stop haunting everyone!

Just a reminder, Kickstarter is “all or nothing” so if I don’t reach my funding goal I get none of the pledged support.

Help a 4th generation small family onion farmer who has lobbied on Capitol Hill get his memoir published via Kickstarter!


My new Kickstarter campaign has officially launched!

Well, it is official … my new Kickstarter campaign has officially launched.



Since my failed previous campaign I have hooked up with a professional editor eager and willing to intensively edit my manuscript. She edited my Kickstarter project and it was an intensive, line by line edit.

Like the other handful of people that have seen all or part of my first draft she is very excited about it and its potential. She thinks I’m a very good story teller and is very excited to work on it.

That’s where you all come in … her proposal to do the project is very reasonable (I’ve gotten other offers the past few months from other editors across the country) and she is excited about the work. But I simply do not have $5,500 to pay her.

I wish a time traveler would give me winning Powerball numbers but that simply has not happened yet. Until it does I need your help. If you can contribute … fantastic … if you could spread the word among your social networks … even better.

In the meantime check out the new verbiage and video … AND THANK YOU!
