I wasn't born with wings, so I'm trying to make my own
 
Sunday, October 26, 2008  

Gee, only 3 1/2 months since my last post instead of 4. I'm getting better ;-)

I can't believe how fast this year has been flying. And man, has it been a rough one. Oh, well--at least I'm getting in one post each season. So, here's the fall update.

First, the REALLY BIG news: I'm on Amazon!!!!! Squee!


There it is--my book. Woot! You'd think all the work I've put in so far would make this "real" for me, but this makes it WAY more real. People can actually pre-order my book. Someone might actually buy my book! Someone might actually read it! Eep! I'm so excited! And terrified! I can't believe I'm lucky enough to be doing this. My part isn't completely done, but I have met all my major deadlines and right now the book is in my editor's hands. She's going to be giving it back to me at an unknown future date for another major chunk of work, but for now I'm having a nice break. It's been so relaxing to have a few weeks free from 1) writing and 2) guilt for not writing. My editorial director is already bringing up a second book, which is, of course, fabulous, but also overwhelming. I want to finish this first one before I even think of another one! Now I really understand that love/hate relationship writers describe with their books. It's a wonderful opportunity and experience; it's also the hardest thing I've ever done.

And speaking of writing, I also had another exciting writing experience: Have you seen the new and improved Spindlicity? Isn't it great?!? I'm proud to have played a (very) small part in it. Here's my article. It's my first published writing! Hopefully they liked it enough to let me join in the fun again. We'll see!

Well, that's the writing news. Next up: the fiber news. I'll be back soon with that. Really. I mean it. Seriously.

Comments:
I saw your fab article in Spindlicity. Made me want to do more silks! Your writing is so clear - can't WAIT for the book!

I posted about your book on my blog, too.

I know you are too busy for this nonsense, but you've been tagged

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!
 
I hope this gets to you! You're not a really active blogger, I see.

Yes, you can get in on the buy. PM me on Ravelry and tell me if you want skeins or a cone. The info is in the Perfect Lace Yarn thread in the Heirloom Knitting group.

A kilo will be about $100 after all the shipping.
 
Oh, and congrats on your gorgeous book! Have to whip over to Amazon and take a peek!
 
Jenni - just wanted to tell you that I saw your book at the Barnes and Noble! How exciting, congratulations! Must be something like having a baby.

One of the yarns that I sent you, the purple one, its sister skein won a 3rd place ribbon at the MN state fair this year. :)
