“So, You Think You Wanna Homeschool?” Becomes an eBook!

Guess what?

I’ve got an eBook coming out!!!!

*points down*

I am excited to announce that So, You Think You Wanna Homeschool? will be released May 28th!

You may remember the series I did a while ago on the blog.

It took a humorous look at some aspects of homeschooling such as the need for a book bag and my inability to be one of those mothers who uses every waking moment as a learning experience.

Well, I took it and made it into an eBook.

But that’s really giving the eBook the shaft because it’s so much more.

THE GOODS

The eBook is divided into two sections:  section one is for someone who is just starting to homeschool and section two is designed for those who aren’t so new to homeschooling.

While each group of people will definitely find useful information in their respective sections, their is great info in both sections for all!

SECTION ONE

When I started homeschooling I had a hard time finding concrete steps to get started.

I found a lot of information about evaluating my educational philosophy and the best way my child learned.  I read about not spending too much money on products.

What I found was a bunch of ambiguous stuff that didn’t help me.  I needed to know specifically what I needed to do to get started.

I’m a box checker, and I needed to know the specific steps to take to get started.

Section one puts these steps together for you.  You’ll find information about:

  • state laws
  • organizational methods
  • curricula
  • record-keeping
  • planning
  • socialization
  • and more!

One bit I’m particularly proud of is the listing of states and their laws.

The statutes and laws can be confusing if you don’t know the jargon just yet, so I took each state and separated out the meat of their laws.  If available, I also included a link to each state’s Department of Education homeschool site {or the state’s equivalent}.

Even if you’ve been homeschooling for a while, there’s still some really great info in this section if I do say so myself!

I’ve included lots and lots of links for extra-special reading!  Many of you are featured in the eBook!

SECTION TWO

Section two might be familiar to some of you, as the basis for this section is the original posts from the series of the same name.

Don’t worry, though; I tweaked it, made it better, added more substance, and made it new and shiny!

Just as in section one, lots of links are present.  Tons of great reading for information purposes, as well as motivation and encouragement.

Some wit is sprinkled in for good measure.

SWEET EXTRAS

Because I am a box checker and because I like organization, I also included sweet extras at the end.

You’ll find checklists, link lists, and more!  So super cool!

THE FINE PRINT

The eBook will be available beginning May 28th, and for one week it will be sold for $4.  That’s half the retail price!

I’ve scoured the internet for and pulled homeschool information from all over the place and packaged it into a nice pretty file for you!

It will be available as a PDF download and on Nook and Kindle.

Be on the lookout for a super cool giveaway the week prior to launch, a free chapter, and more!

I want to thank each of you for your support; it means so much to me and I can’t wait to share this fun experience with you!
