Holly Lisle’s Create A Language Clinic now in Paperback

CaLC-ebook-cover.pngHave done the copyedits. Have fixed typos and clarified a few things. Have redone the font, made it all pretty for print, and now Holly Lisle’s Create A Language Clinic has passed muster and is now available for purchase.

In a few days, a revised PDF version will be available for download from the shop, free to anyone who purchased it previously. It will take me that long to get everything switched around.

Yessum, I was referring to the word count… I’d noticed that it went up to 8,000, and since the last I’d seen was 2,000, I was encouraged. And curious if it was going to beget any more unexpected children (like the Language Clinic) or if it might surpass that 30,000 goal. That list of topics seems huge. Beyond huge. Thank you for the Lulu lesson, though. (grin)

Lulu seems to have its uses… but it seems most effective for books of limited interest…

I really wish your Clinic books were available in the regular manner. I was talking with my local librarian about them, especially the language clinic. It’s really a refreshing change from the typical writing book, IMO… and it, and what you’ve said about the other books you plan, and even thinking about the horse one you’ve added to your shop… it made me realize there is a huge potenetial subset of writing books that simply don’t exist yet.

And now I’m sitting here, having said that, and I can’t figure out how to put into words what the difference is. Maybe a part of it is the hands-on feel… sort of like comparing a messy kindergarten art class, where you just get in there and DO it, (and enjoy it) as opposed to a book that drones like you’re student 503, way in the back of lecture hall… and not anything like a high school lesson, read this, do those exercises, and you’ll get it, at least well enough…

But that isn’t really all I mean, either. I have to head out the door, soccer game, now, so I can’t muddle over it any more now. But dang it anyways, hopefully you know what I mean. Different, in a refreshing, positive sort of way.

Has the Language Clinic been substantially altered? Enough to warrant a re-read, I mean?

BTW, I believe shawna was referring to the word count graphs in the sidebar…

Wow, look at the numbers on the Culture Clinic… yay! Just curious, though… does it look like it’s going to get too big for its britches, too?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
