Kyra, thank you so much for offering your workshop, Self-publishing for Quilters, at Not Fade Away 2013 and 2015. Your students were bubbling over with excitement about the possibilities that you introduced to them. You have a real knack for not only providing a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to self-publishing, but also for making your students believe they can do it starting today with the tools they already have. And you're funny!! Thanks, again.

Thanks for the informative post... I recently purchased a book online .. The book is great and it shares vast information about African American history.
