Deschooling Gently Now in Print

Deschooling Gently CoverYesterday, my publisher hand delivered my first copies of Deschooling Gently. I was so nervous! But all my fears were gone when I saw it. It’s beautiful. My publisher did an awesome job with the formatting and colors. It’s a meaty book, with a lot of info. I had forgotten how much I put in it, since it’s been about four months since I turned in my final manuscript.

To celebrate the birth of my book, I held a small pre-launch party at my house with close friends, my publisher, and my family. They were all so sweet, and bought copies of my book. The first book I signed was my friend Melissa’s, and it was so surreal.

I will never forget seeing the book for the first time, the toasts that my husband and publisher gave to me, and all of the wine and chocolate that we celebrated with.

It all started with this post, called Deschooling Gently. Then I added the “fearless homeschooling” to the title. From there, it all came together, and after months of writing, re-writing, deleting, writing some more, editing, and doing it all again another time, a book was born. Deschooling Gently encompasses so much of what I talk about here on JustEnough, the articles I’ve written, and the talks I’ve given. It’s all on paper, and it’s available for purchase.

I’m starting to hyperventilate.


If you’d like to order this homeschooling tome, Deschooling Gently is now available through the Hunt Press website, or It will be available on Amazon very soon. Be one of the first ones to get a copy!
