ANOTHER New Publication!

After I got the advance copy of Easy to Love but Hard to Raise, in which my essay is published, I had a few email chats with one of the editors, and she suggested I write an article for the website or possibly for the second volume of the book, which will focus on educating kids with disabilities. I started off trying to write about why I didn't home school my son, but ended up instead talking about genetics and disability in my family. I described how my life replayed that of my grandmother's in several ways because of this history of disability and abuse, but the outcome was, thankfully, different, partly because of the differing circumstances pertaining to the times in which we lived our lives.
This essay will appear on Friday on Facebook at the book's blog/Facebook Page, Easy to Love but Hard to Raise. I'll publish a link when it comes out.

Good job, Robbi--

You seem to have the nucleus for a book--two chapters, anyway. And I tell you, nonfiction is where it is at when it comes to selling a manuscript...

Congratulations! I hope your article is a help to lots of parents who are raising children with disabilities. I am sure that many out there can benefit from your wisdom and experience.

I'm thinking autobiographical non-fiction, for the most part, and I have lots more than two pieces to go into that book now. More like 7-10. They wouldn't all be about this subject though.

Thanks Robin!
