    Have you ever thought about creating an e-book or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

      Hi Logan, I have thought of this as it has been mentioned on many of the Kindle websites and by other authors who have done the same. However, I am currently working on several books that have a deadline for beta readers, editors, etc. that are my first priority. I would like to have some time to add value for those people who would appreciate, as would I, additional information than you can't already get from this website. As the days and months and now years tick on, it would be easier for people to puruse this content via an ebook or pdf if you are a tablet owner. If more people in addition to you, dearheart, ask for this then I will set aside a night or two to get it up and running. My best to you and hope your writing projects are ticking along as well.

Any thoughts on this? What is your opinion?
