Are you using my books?

A request. I'm trying to get a sense of who's using my books in
  • classes (grad, undergrad)
  • graduate reading lists
  • theses, dissertations
If you've used one of my books in any of these contexts, could you send me a link? You can comment here, respond to me on Facebook or Twitter, or email me (clay dot spinuzzi at mail dot utexas dot edu). Thanks, all - I'm eager to hear from you.

I'm appearing at TCU Friday

If you're in the Fort Worth area Friday, I'll be speaking at TCU at 7pm about writing up qualitative research. Information is at the TCU English page, where they also have a downloadable PDF about the event.

The talk is entitled "How Not to Write Fiction: Style and Evidence in Qualitative Research Studies." Basically, I'll be talking about writing up qualitative research in an engaging way while remaining true to the case - in other words, how to write like a mystery writer, but build your case like a lawyer.

I don't like to give long presentations, so this one will probably clock in at about 20 minutes, with plenty of time for discussion afterwards. Swing on by if you're interested! And if you can't make it, I'll probably post a modified version on my blog next week.
