Excerpt: The American Dream “Bigger is Better”

The following is an excerpt from my book, “Living Large in Our Little House:”

Golden rays of a setting July sun beamed through leaded-glass windows, highlighting dancing dust particles in the air. It was the only movement in what had been a bustling and busy family home until just a few hours before.

Coming Soon: Living Large, the Book

Living Largers love books and that’s why I’m extra excited to announce that my book, Living Large in Our Little House: Thriving in 480-square feet with Six Dogs, a Husband and One Remote, And How You Can Too will be published by Reader’s Digest Books and distributed by Penguin in Fall 2015.

Living Large, the book, will have a lot of new tips on how to live well in a small space and emphasize that Living Large is a State of Mind, no matter where you live.

The book will also contain stories of other Living Largers. Kent Griswold at the Tiny House Blog is writing the foreword.

I’m very excited and a little nervous. I’ll be working hard for the next four months getting this out to the publisher so our community will have it by next fall.

Thanks to all of our Living Large community for your continued support and yes, the book will be released in e-book form as well!

Living Large – the Book

I’m celebrating the 5 year anniversary of the Living Large blog with an announcement!

The book based on our experiences downsizing to a small house, along with tips from me and other Living Largers is one step closer to reality.

My agent and I have agreed on a working title, Living Large in our Little House: Thriving in 480-Square Feet with Six Dogs, a Husband and One Remote and How you Can, too.

The book will tell the story of how we came to live in Our Little House, but will also have never-before published stories about our downsizing, as well as stories of others who have done the same.

It will be about Living Large by actual Living Largers!

The book will also give tips on how to complete your own Living Large dream!

How many of you would like to read this book and what tips would you like to see in it?
