Throughout my life, when people spoke about writing a book, it seemed like something that was inaccessible to me. It wasn't something I ever aspired to, or ever thought I would (or could) do. Hm. Funny how life proves you wrong.
Last week I received the final mock-up of my book on water-based resists (scheduled for release next June). It has been a long process. I started writing last November and finished up in March. The how-to photos were shot in April. Even though I've read it many times and have seen all the photos, it was pretty amazing to see it all put together.
I discovered that writing a book isn't as daunting as I thought it would be. Yes, it was a lot of work, but (dare I say?) I actually enjoyed it. Actually, the writing was just a small portion of the work involved. A lot of time was spent making fabric samples, planning the how-to photos and organizing supplies for the photo shoot.
And I really enjoyed everyone I worked with at C&T Publishing. They have all been helpful, enthusiastic and encouraging. They do their job well!
Here's a sneak peek at the cover. In January I'll post more info about the book and the special incentives I have for those who purchase it directly from me.
