Greetings BtK readers,
I hope this latest issue of the BtK journal finds you all in good spirits and enjoying the sights, sounds and tastes of autumn.
This issue brings a wealth of knowledge and insider hints for anyone who is considering getting published in the highly competitive EFL textbook market. Curtis Kelley, Marc Helgesen and a number of other well-respected and well-published authors offer advice and anecdotes to help you on your way to entering the exciting, challenging and demanding world of commercial textbook writing.
Brian Cullen is back with another “Writer’s Point” column, exploring different types of materials writing projects and featuring comment and insight from materials writers from around the world. In this issue, Brian describes a writing course developed by Nagoya Women’s University’s Cameron Smith.
Finally, with a mind to environmental issues, Asako Kajiura offers a communicative activity designed to get students and teachers alike thinking about their energy needs.
All at BtK wish you all the best for the autumn semester.
