Great Writing Tool: Scrivener

About Us
A few years ago, I made the conscientious effort to move away from writing articles and using my ideas and content on my blog. I found writing articles for traditional magazines to be well simply an antiquated business model. The timeframe from idea to publishing is laboriously slow and receiving the minimalistic pay even slower. For the past two years, I have published all this great content on my blog, my payment, you my loyal readers. If you wish to support The Armchair Genealogist financially then consider doing your online shopping through my Amazon Store. You get the same great prices and I make a small commission for my efforts. In my store, you will notice I have sorted out for you some of my great finds for genealogists. However, just want to shop the rest of the store, go ahead it has everything you need. Thanks again, I really do appreciate you stopping by.

How to Write a Book

Book Featuring Vancouver Artists: WeMakeStuff

Why make a book?

There is power in coming together to create something new, something tangible, something you can hold in your hand. For us, the process of making a book with 100 people is more important than the actual product. It is this collaborate creative act that rallies a community, affirms individual artists and ultimately inspires the much wider audience of people who receive the completed book.

When will I get my book?

WeMakeStuff Volume 02 will go to print immediately after our crowdfunding campaign ends, with the books delivered in November of this year, just in time to go under the Christmas tree. There will be a number of pick-up points for the book in the Lower Mainland starting in late November. If you would like your book mailed to you, please ADD SHIPPING by claiming the shipping “perk” and calculating your shipping costs.
