Coming soon - So There I Was - the book!

My trip to the Quakers United in Publishing Conference in April pushed me over the final intellectual hurdle to self-publishing.

I have a bunch of good writing and good ideas on my computer and in my head.

I love the quality of our Faith and Practice Book and our local Press is helpful and swift.

The stigma attached to self-publishing has almost vanished.

The cost is not prohibitive.

Cutting out the middlepeople of editors and publisher doesn't hurt my feelings at all.

So I bought a block of ten ISBNs and here I go.

I am working with a selection of my So There I Was UPI columns.

I expect to have it in my hands by the fourth of July.
Comments:
yeah!
 
Far OUT!!!!! Put me down for at least one copy. I'm likely to get more to give away as presents.
 
I want one.
 
I will take some pre-orders in a couple of weeks. It is looking like it it going to be about 250 pages and when I get the quote from the press, I can price the book and start taking orders.

You guys encourage me!
thanks
 
I'm with Nate so I hope you're thinking internationally! Great that QUIP has had such a positive effect on you. Your presentation there certainly had one on me!
 
Peggy, Your columns are good stuff however they're published! Looking forward to it.
