OK. Just a quick introduction. My name is Lindsey Schauer (pronounced "Shower"). I'm originially from southwest Michigan. I moved to Florida for a year after getting my undergrad where I worked as a proofreader. Following that, I moved to Prague (the Czech Republic) to teach English. It was really fantastic, and Prague is still my favorite city. But I realized that teaching wasn't for me and decided to look at getting my master's in publishing back stateside.

So here I am. Now I'm back in Michigan leeching off my parents. I haven't been to D.C. since I was maybe 10 years old, but everyone tells me it's an amazing city. I'm thinking of doing the e-publishing track, even though I'm fairly resistant to e-publishing. It's time to bite the bullet.

I'm somewhere around 60% excited and 40% nervous about starting school again and moving at the moment. Since I know almost no one in D.C., I'm really looking forward to the program and to meeting people in it. See you all in a couple weeks!

Here's an article discussing whether or not Kindle is going to revolutionize publishing or be it's demise.

  1. Hi Lindsey,

    If you plan on moving in DC rather than VA and need any help with your house hunt, let me know- I'll be commuting from the city, so I know a lot of good areas that are metro accessible.
