I know you are fed up with this!!! #RPBP

Good morning everyone :)

I know you have all seen the posts about the shortlisted 50 Self-Published Books Worth Reading 2015. Those of us that have books nominated are filling up your news feeds with 'vote for me' posts! Well, that's because not only are we super excited to have got to this stage but because we are proud to be self-published and whichever books win we are flying the flag for indies and self-publishing.
If you can spare the time to vote you get three votes in three categories and there are some awesome books to choose from. Those of you who subscribe to RPBP news for daily free & 99c books plus author news from indie authors will have seen some of the authors who are nominated featured. 
Today I am plugging for votes for my book, but next week I will do a final listing of my ASMSG, TWFBG friends who have books nominated in a final push for votes.
Thank you for reading and voting :)

What's the book about anyway???
Our Frugal Summer in Charente: An Expat’s Kitchen Garden Journal Meet Sarah Jane, a woman with a reputation for culinary catastrophe who tries to keep her family fed in challenging circumstances in rural France. Frugal living was not part of the plan when they arrived from Australia to undertake the renovation of a quaint cottage in the Charente. However, when life throws them a curve-ball the challenge was set. How to survive in France with very little money and two Australian cattle dogs. The answer came in the form of 5 chickens, 4 ducks and a vegetable garden! The frugal plan was to save money by any means possible, to enable any money they could earn to be invested into continuing the renovation of the cottage. In true ‘Good Life’ style Sarah Jane attacks this challenge head on by keeping some small livestock and converting a garden, that resembled a meadow, into a French ‘potager’ or kitchen garden.The French tradition of using produce from their ‘potagers’ is renowned for enabling families to create meals that are healthy, cost effective and simple. There are 31 recipes for a variety of food and drinks, included in a month by month account, of how they transformed a neglected garden into a frugal yet productive expat kitchen garden.
