If you would like to contribute an item, then first see How to Become a Contributor and Please Read this Guideline before Making Your Own Contribution.

Please note that the deadline has passed for adding items that will be considered for inclusion in the book. However, the site will continue to grow and accept new items, so add any new contribution to the Not Yet Ready for Editing or Ready for Editing lists and be sure to include yourself in the list of Contributors. Don't forget to provide a profile and to sign up for announcements here.

Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to contribute.

Ready for Editing

Contributions in this section are effectively complete from the author's point of view. Items appended to the list in this section must meet the word-count requirements (at least 400 words and not wildly over 500 words) and the associated author bio must also be complete (see here for more details). An item is moved to Edits Pending when the editor has had a chance to edit and make suggestions to the author.
