I have tried writing this post over and over, and every time I write it, it sounds boastful, or silly, or crazy, or weird to me. Maybe it wouldn't to you - I don't know. But I've never done this before - I've never written a book and don't know the "right way" to promote it. Is there a right way? Is there a way to shout out from the roof tops how excited I am, without sounding boastful?
Having written a book is like giving birth to a baby elephant. It has consumed my life for the most part of 18 months and I am overjoyed with the results. It feels like old news to me - but for most of you, it is all brand new, and I hope you will love it like I do.
In the coming weeks and months - I will be doing a host of giveaways, and sharing real stories that inspired many of the patterns, so please come back often. I hope you will buy the book (it's available for pre-orders on Amazon as well as on Barnes and Noble) and sew along with me. When my Etsy shop re-opens I will be offering signed copies for sale.
If you have already purchased a copy of my book - I thank you from the bottom of my heart! It means so much to me that all my hard work is being accepted.
I'd like to publicly thank Heather Bailey for writing the foreword. Sewing pattern books don't always have a foreword, but I prayed and asked her to write one for mine and she said yes! She's such an amazing person! If you don't know her - check out her website and learn more about her. She's also hosting a ton of giveaways this month to celebrate her birthday and giveback to all her fans - you don't want to miss out!
Have a wonderful week!
