Interview with the Standard Examiner

Interview with Standard Examiner

Hello everyone-

The lovely folks at the Standard Examiner (local paper with a circulation of over 65,000) brought me in for an interview about this project. The article has just been published. Here's the link to the video portion:

I was also interviewed by the Signpost, the paper at Weber State University. Here's that interview (I'll admit as a teacher I feel an urge to bust out the red pen on this one):

I've been working to get the word out as much as possible. This is a great start!

As far as the book, everything is on track. I'm working on cover layout, illustrations, and the final revision right now. Finals are coming up (I teach college English) so the next couple weeks will be a bit crazy with grading and over-stressed students, but I'm ahead of schedule to have everything finished and shipped early next year.

Again, still working on the stretch goal of $6,500, so I greatly appreciate any project link forwards to your friends or others who might be interested. 

Thanks for your support and happy Thanksgiving!
