This is a hard update to write, and I have been putting it off. I’ve known for several days that my announcement of an August 28th release date was premature, and I am actually going to have to wait longer. I don’t mind for myself, but I have dreaded telling all of you that rather than a very near release date within this month, I am going to have to change that date to one several weeks in the future. In fact, I’m going to set a tentative date of October 25th.
I have been humbled and gratified by many of you have written to tell me how much you are looking forward to reading the book. I hate having to say that we are going to have to wait still longer, but we are, indeed, going to have to wait. The book is written and will be there to read. I apologize for having to backtrack now. The frenzy to finish the editing can now be done at leisure, and I will spare a little time to think about what I can offer to make up for the wait.
In the meantime, we have to wait together, but I am looking forward to the not-too-distant future when I will be able to share this work, the cumulative study of 20 years distilled into twelve readable chapters, with you all. Thank you for your patience, and I add again that I am more chagrined than I can say that I have to change the date.
It’s tentative, but we are marking August 28th as the release date for Consider This. There is still some work to do, but we think we can be ready by then. I hope you are as excited as we are.
If you haven’t seen the book trailer, you can view it on the website, along with some kind comments from Michelle Miller of TruthQuest History.
I’m so glad the book will be available soon. I’m really looking forward to sharing it.
Each week brings Consider This closer to publication, and I am getting excited about having it finished and available. If you visit the site now, you’ll find that mundane filler-cover has been replaced with the real cover, and I am very happy with the finished product, the joint effort my husband and daughter.
I’ve also added a review by a dear friend who read the first manuscript for me, Anne White. She has shared a few tidbits and insights from Consider This that I hope will pique your interest.
I hope that the next update will bring you the news of a definite release date. I’ll send it out just as soon as I know it myself!
Thank you for your interest–I really can’t wait to share the finished book with you all.
With the hope of a release date before the end of August, I feel like my eyes are watching the clock and calendar anxiously. There are so many little details. I had hoped to share the final cover design by now, but that is still a couple of weeks away. After the cover is done, I hope to have a short video preview to share. Meanwhile, I’m working on editing so that the final manuscript will be as error-free as possible.
I’ve uploaded one new article, The Teacher as a Philosopher, and I hope to add a few more in the coming weeks. I’ve also added some kind commentary from Sonia Shafer of Simply Charlotte Mason to the main page.
Thank you for you interest in Consider This. I am really looking forward to sharing the finished book with you very soon!
I’ve added a new article to the site, updated from one written long ago, The Still Progress of Growth. I continue to be amazed at how similar my thinking today is to what it was over ten years ago.
The editing of the book manuscript is about 1/2 complete, and work is underway on the cover design. I hope the next update will include the reveal of the finished book cover.
I will have the privilege of visiting Charlotte Mason’s home region in Ambleside, England this week for the first time. How amazed she would be to know that her work goes on, and her ideas are appreciated and shared over 90 years after her death.
Thank you for you continued interest–I ‘m looking forward to sharing the finished book with you all.
Thanks to everyone who has already stopped by this work-in-progress to see what is going on. I’m very pleased to have finally written the book I’ve had in mind for over ten years, and I hope it’s a better book because it’s had so long to simmer.
In the next few weeks, I expect to update the look of the website, share the actual cover design, and hopefully nail down a definite release date for the book. In the meantime, I will gradually be adding content that might be of interest. I’ve posted an article and a couple of reviews to begin with.
Thanks to all who have shown interest in Consider This–I am looking forward to hearing what you think!
