Graduation season is approaching

Warning: Shameless plug With graduation season quickly approaching I think its worth giving a shameless plug for the three books that I have written. It’s worth mentioning that if you have a son, daughter, niece, nephew, friend or friend/co-worker who has a child who is graduating from high school/college/graduate school and you need graduation gift…

I’m…

Proposal writing

I’m putting the finishing touches on a few sample chapters for two book proposals that I’ll be submitting soon.
