New E-Book

To celebrate the new year, I wrote a short e-book:

10 Action Tips for New or Tired Homeschool Parents.

When I decided to jump in to this project, I didn’t realize what a learning experience it would be.

  1. I have tried Canva before, and I used it to create my book cover. Pretty simple.
  2. I was accustomed to the information-gathering, editing, and rewriting that I had to do. (Even after all that, I know the book is farrr from perfect.)
  3. The process of formatting through Kindle Direct Publishing was stretching, and it included lots of trial and error. After viewing it on various devices, I had to tweak the formatting. You must unpublish the book if you need to edit it— so I have already had to unpublish and republish this book twice.
  4. After listing the book, I found it under another author’s booklist. (Her name is Lisa Luciano, too.) So, I changed my name to include my middle initial, and got the book in the right place.

Looking back, the experience was like taking a class. I learned, practiced, made mistakes, started over, and repeated this a few times. The end project of this made-up, self-directed class was to complete and publish my own ebook.

Notes:

  • I enjoyed collecting quotes from some of my favorite children’s authors. These quotes are included at the beginning of every chapter.
  • Chunks of the book were adapted from other work I have done here on my blog, or borrowed from my other writing projects.
  • My favorite part sits at the end of the book, where I tell a little bit about my personal journey. It’s called: Tired, Crazy, Ignorant and Unrefined: My Story.”

If you are interested in homeschooling, or know someone who is, I invite you to take a look! The book aims to be encouraging and practical for anyone who is new at home education, and it might be helpful for homeschooling parents who would like a few fresh new ideas.

A free copy goes to the first three people who would like to send me their name and email address in a private message!

Thank you for visiting my blog.
