shameless self-promotion

Book sale: paperback 28% off on Amazon

Published by Lori Pickert on July 16, 2012 at 06:35 AM

The great and powerful Oz, I mean Amazon, has put my book on sale for 28% off: Order Project-Based Homeschooling: Mentoring Self-Directed Learners for only $9.68. (U.S. version only so far, unfortunately.)

I had nothing to do with this price markdown and had no idea it would happen — and I have no idea how long it will last! But now would be a great time to get the book at a bargain price, buy it for a friend, or buy it for your library. Please pass the word along!

Edited to add: The book is now also on sale at Barnes & Noble.

Project-Based Homeschooling, the book

Welcome to the new site!

Well, friends, as you know, I’ve been working on this for quite awhile (I think we’ve stretched the definition of “long-term project”), but it’s finally ready to show you.

Thanks for sticking with me, reading, and e-mailing your questions and your encouragement over the years. Your kind words kept me working and helped me finish.

Along with the book I’m also going to be rolling out some free e-books, and I’m finishing up a parent handbook & idea book that will be a companion to this first book. If you want to be alerted when things are ready, please make sure to join our mailing list. And yes, we have e-mail subscriptions at last! (And there will be posts to read as well!) Electronic versions of the book are also in the works — I’m currently proofing the Kindle version — so if you prefer to e-read, we’ll soon have you covered as well.

Another big thing: we finally have a working forum. It still needs some work, and you’ll notice some things changing (and hopefully improving) over the next few weeks, but there’s a place to go to ask questions and have conversations. Huzzah!

Thank you again (and again) for your support. I cannot overemphasize how much it has meant to me. Your encouragement is what made me stick with this until it was finally done. My sincerest wish is to pay it back with interest.

Edited to add: It looks like the book should be available on in — wah wah wahhhhh — six to eight weeks. I love you, Canada — sorry for the wait!
