About Me

Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

modern mushroom growing 2020 harvesting

Yay, we finally got them all uploaded as of this morning!
Becoming an Indie Publisher and Co-Author is NOT an easy task...
But we can rightfully say: Mission Accomplished 
Photos are made at the studio of Gillis Video click for info.
We both are grateful to Mr. Gil for his excellent work and above all, for having a photo with both of us together.
Here we proudly show the Hardback.
Uploaded the EPUB this morning, with IngramSpark, so now all 3 forms are available.
modern mushroom growing 2020 harvesting Ebook: ISBN 978-1-7352413-2-6
modern mushroom growing 2020 harvesting Paperback ISBN 978-1-7352413-0-2
modern mushroom growing 2020 harvesting Hardback ISBN 978-1-7352413-1-9
All, for Worldwide Print On Demand and in English, not American English.
Once more we went back to our roots as we both studied Oxford English... 
We had the help of a professional graphic designer: Elisabeth Heissler Design from the U.K.
Found her via Reedsy.com and we selected her, because of her academic and educational publishing experience. Click on link above.
She got me started, after doing the interior design for me, to type away for my 12 chapters and many sub chapters, which I did send her one by one via WeTransfer.
For several days I got this message 'Welcome back! as I continued typing ahead...
Aside from the Interior Design she also did the Typesetting and inserted all Figures and Tables and helped with the more complicated Tables that I could not do... too old for learning it all!
Yep, that's a lot of words! And complicated ones due to the scientific nature of the book.
But I got to the end of its 12 chapters.
We did the final corrections and editing of the Proofs, using Adobe Pro, for placing sticky notes for Elisabeth, to change.
At times you can laugh, like here, with the funny abbreviation of thresholds. You see my sticky note next to it.
Yes, our entire book is done in metric, as that is for us the natural way, being Dutch by birth and also in regard to worldwide publishing.
Funny is that legally, the US also is metric, but it only is being used in the medical world and some other industries...
Final print ready PDF for uploading...
And after Elisabeth's vacation, she did the conversion and formatting for the Ebook
It sure was quite a challenging task with its 448 pages, some 240 Figures and lots of them in full color. Also 30 Tables.
Husband Pieter did the illustrations and most of the photos. Some he got from a University such as an electron microscope enlargement 80.000x of virus particles.
We are grateful to the special people that created the Forewords.
We had NO SPONSORS... this is by no means a book for promoting  certain mushroom spawn companies, ingredients, any machinery or turn key projects.
We tried to offer a combination of scientific facts with a good portion of practical (personal) experience, gained over a lifetime.
Doing it all on our own; purchasing the ISBNs from Bowker Identifier Services for use with each format.
 Also going through the very tedious and complicated process of applying for copy rights.
Guess, all government offices are complex! Sure, they make you pay up front... Haha.
The good thing was that after speaking first with a very helpful and friendly lady, I knew I only needed to apply once for all three formats!
We really were so happy after having received the proof prints of our book!
Thanks Mr. Gil for capturing us together... as Team Vedder

      Yes, a mommoth task indeed and it would be the same if you wrote a scientific book in Dutch... People often forget that English is not our mother tongue.

  7. Big congratulations to you and your husband Pieter! Your books will help the mushroom growers all over the world! This must have been a really hard work, going through all the details and procedures. I didn't know US is legally in metric. But indeed, I hear it only in very limited situations.
    The photos of you two are wonderful. You really have done a great job and I'm very happy for you :-)

  9. Congratulations! I was surprised to know your husband wrote a book for elementary schools. Younger generation's interest in mushrooms will develop a new world.

    1. Dearest RTC,
      The one for elementary schools was only a little booklet.
      The big one is mainly for commercial growing mushrooms.

      Danke, es war eine riesige Aufgabe aber wir beide haben es geschafft und damit kann die ganze Welt etwas davon lernen. Andere publizieren mit 'Sponsors' und nur in sehr begrenztes kleines Marktsortiment mit enormen Versandkosten und langen Wartezeiten.
      Lieber Gruß,

  16. Congratulations to you both. That is quite an undertaking. You are obviously able to master any new task required to accomplish what you set out to do. Patience and fortitude have served you well.

    1. Dearest Tammy,
      Thank you so much and yes, fortitude is a strong element.
      While working for Campbell Soup, Pieter was not allowed to publish any book but we both had the plan for doing that ourselves. Only so many tasks needed to be completed first on house and garden... But we finally DID it with a lot of perseverance, as self publishing was the most difficult of all options but the only one for managing 'worldwide' publishing with print on demand at over 40,000+ booksellers...
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    1. Dearest Diane,
      Those are NOT memoirs but instead it is a textbook that ranks rather high as a university textbook, see my post about it on February 9, 2021.
