Working Cover

Quick update on the book: In the end, I’ve decided to go the indie route to self-publication.

An update to the update! (2/16) It looks like I won’t be self-publishing this one after all. A small press that normally published ESL/EFL books has expressed interest in Taking Leave. We’re ironing out the details, but it looks like the goal is to start production in May, with an aim to release both print and ebook versions before the annual JALT Conference in November.

Two endorsements already, one from a gender studies expert and one from a former lieutenant governor in Japan. And naturally, all reviews and comments from other interested colleagues, parents, workers and families both at home and abroad are welcome!

Here’s another cover idea. No idea if this will be the final or not, but that’s also under negotiation!



About MThomas

I've been teaching English as a foreign language in Japan for 19 years. A few years ago, I became the first male faculty member in a Japanese technical college to take child care leave. My first blog on Wordpress detailed that experience. My second blog is about my fiction and non-fiction writing, both published and works in progress.
