  1. I thoroughly enjoyed your broadcast about publishing today! It touched upon many of the tips I needed as I begin writing a series of homeschool curriculum/workbooks this year! Thank you so much for putting that together, and for all the great listener resources you provide. I try to catch them as often as I can. Best wishes!
