Teaching is Not a Four Letter Word & Ten Cheap Lessons Paperbacks Now Under $10

I've cut the prices on both paperback versions of my books (the first edition of Ten Cheap Lessons and Teaching is Not a Four Letter Word) so that they're under $10 each when you get them direct from  This is most likely a permanent price cut.  There are also various e-book versions you can find through my author spotlight that are an even better deal.

Looking for coupons to save even more?  Follow me on Twitter and Facebook, where I share coupons for free shipping and more from Lulu regularly.

*Note that the prices on Amazon and B&N are higher because I'm required to mark them up so that those companies can get their cut of the sales.  The best deal was and is through Lulu.
