    Default Introducing...........

    I've written a book!

    I have a real ISBN number and everything lol. I'm not going to post it this second, not even the title, because it's being edited by a professional editor and it will be ready soon. It will be a print book, but hopefully I'll be able to get it in an ebook format too. At that point I'll spill all. I will say this- the subject is specifically for homeschool families with children in 9-12 grade that want to earn college credit. It guides parents through the lesson planning, creating transcripts, and correlating their state's high school laws along side subjects with AP/CLEP/DSST exams. The goal is completing high school with some amount of college credit. It's not "exactly" the same as what we talk about here, since we mainly work on speed- cost saving- distance learning - testing- the big 3- and ACE, this is more geared toward the mainstream family whose child is likely to follow a more traditional path. I felt that there are zillions of resources already offered to 1000% traditional students, loads of resources for homeschool families, and many good resources for those who want distance learning/testing/alternatives... but I felt that there was a huge gap for the average homeschooling family who wanted a more traditional college path for their kids.

    I'll spill one other tiny thing- my dedication is to +/- 100 names...

    Congrats! I wish I could say I'm surprised but I'm not. I'm glad you've made that first step which a lot of times is the most difficult.
