Have a green job? How’d you get it?

leave a comment »

I am writing a series of articles about green jobs and want to reach out beyond my own network to find interesting stories about people who now have green jobs and how they got them. Interested? Leave a comment with contact information.

I am interested in all kinds of green jobs — from sustainability officer to truck driver to scientist to green job counseling. For now, I’m interested in new jobs — those who are now in a green job and maybe weren’t before.

Thanks.

Another letter for the BAIPA News (July 2008)

Being an author and a publisher can pull at us in different ways – and being small, independent publishers means that there are dozens of tasks we need to complete on a regular basis.

Taking these steps, these positive steps – I call them baby steps — is important. And it’s equally important to acknowledge taking these steps, whatever they are, to move you onward.

Beyond the money. Living in the book world.

I have been writing articles for the BAIPA News — and thought I’d post some of them here. I hope they are helpful to you. (May 2008)

I have been working on projects recently where I’m dealing with the business realities of publishing – how to make enough money to pay for all the things needed to build the books and generate the sales. At times it seems difficult, if not impossible, to make it all work, especially because I personally don’t like selling and don’t want to be doing the things it often takes to sell a lot of books. I like writing books. I like designing books. I like managing book projects. I like helping others with their books. That’s where my heart lies.
