My new book When Digital Isn't Real: Fact Finding Offline For Serious Writers is out in both paperback and on Kindle. It's received 8 five-star reviews at Amazon.com plus was recommended on GoodReads.

It's a much need reference for all writers, teachers, students -basically, anyone who write anything. We all need to remember that not EVERYTHING can be found online but most important, there is an abundance of just plain wrong information online. My little book details all those offline sources too many of us have forgotten about. I was asked to make a presentation in Austin at Story Circle Network's National conference!
