Our 1st Book Chapter

Rusty and I wrote a proposal for a chapter to be included in this edited collection in October 2016, shortly after our first article was published in the Journal of Business and Finance Librarianship. I saw Dirk’s CfP and thought we had a project that would work well for it. We literally wrote the proposal on an airplane, flying home from attending the AECT (Association for Educational Communications and Technology) conference in Las Vegas. A few months later we learned we were accepted, wrote the chapter, and the book was published in February 2018. This may give you a little insight into publishing timelines – from proposal to publication is not a typically a fast process.

Today we received our personal copies from the publisher.

Apply for that CfP (Call for Proposal) before you think you’re ready. Whether it’s a conference presentation, journal article, book chapter, etc… This proposal was our first book chapter proposal. I didn’t know if we were ready but we wanted a book chapter so we went for it. It was honestly the best feeling to hold this book in my hand today – an actual published hardback book that was not my dissertation. So apply. Even if you don’t think you are ready. If you get a no, find another CfP and try again.
