Currently a work in progress, the Poly on Purpose Guides will be ebooks taking a more in-depth look at the topics covered in this blog.
In January of 2012, I wrapped up my polyamory and pregnancy blog series, saying that I had covered everything I could think of to say on the subject. Looking back at it six months later, I realized that while I had hit the main topics, I hadn’t taken the time to go into any of them in any detail. I skimmed. There really isn’t room or time to do much more in a blog, unless I want to spend years on a topic. In a book, I have the room to as indepth as I need (over 100 pages in-depth!)
I think that publishing this information in a book is also more convenient for my audience. If you are pregnant or preparing for a pregnancy, you shouldn’t need to wait months to get all the information you are looking for, or search through hundreds of blog posts. You should be able to have all the information you want at (or in!) hand, accessible, sharable and usable when you need it.
And that is where the idea for the Polyamory on Purpose Guides came from.
The first one will be the Guide to Pregnancy and Polyamory, tentative publication mid-March.
Future titles will include:
Guide to Children
Guide to Safer Sex
Guide to the Poly Home
