With Apologies for Not Posting

I always feel apologetic when I haven't posted to this blog in a long time although I probably should just be apologizing to myself! After all, how can anybody know what I'm teaching or what I've been writing or publishing, etc, if I don't widely share that information?

It would take too long to go into everything that's kept me busy since I last posted to this blog. Let me just say that foster parenting has taken up most of my time for the last year and a half: in fact, today marks exactly 18 months since my partner and I took placement of a foster child. It has been a long process involving a lot of love and time and care--and a lot of unknowns.

What finally brings me back to the blog is that I'm teaching a workshop called "How to Self-Publish for (Almost) Free" at the 2015 Write on the Sound conference in Edmonds, and I decided to create a page on this site with a list of self-publishing resources. If you're visiting my blog as a result of attending the workshop, thank you and welcome!

I also created an eight-page mini-zine specially for the workshop, and it's called Why Self-Publish. It's a very text-heavy zine with ideas and inspiration. Basically, if you read the zine, I hope that you'll hurriedly set it down so that you can get right to work on your own self-publishing project. If you want me to mail you a copy, you can use the PayPal button below to send me $1 to cover the costs of mailing, etc.

Thanks for visiting my blog, and I hope to resume more regular posting again soon.
