    Just found this blog. Seeing that this is the most recent post and that this book was published in 2015 I am guessing your work has taken you away from blogging. Congrats on being published nevertheless! And thanks for all the resources you have left 🙂

      Hi, Mike! Thanks so much for the comment. You aren’t incorrect; I’ve been very busy in the last year working on my dissertation, which hasn’t left much spare time for the blog. I do hope to return to blogging once my dissertation is finished (I’m projected to finish this month and to defend in Spring)!
