I'm FREEEEEEEEEE!

Well, I'm almost free. Tomorrow I send a 54,064-word, 597-image book to be published - my baby is launched! Seven months to birth it. We're talking seven months of LABOR. Fun though. And it's a dream come true! I'll be telling you more as soon as I can.  In the meantime, I'll finally have time to do some blog reading and posting!



I've been doing the final checking, burning DVDs, and packaging the beadwork all day long, with only a couple of short meal breaks. So for tonight, the only thing I have to offer you is the picture above, which is a detail from my October Bead Journal Project. November is finished and photographed too. Might have time to post them both tomorrow... this week for sure.

Maybe I'll tell you a little about what it's like to write a beading book. Anybody interested?

  3. Many, MANY congratulations on completing the book. I am glad that you have come out of it feeling that it was fun. You bet we are interested to know about it and maybe we could have one or two sneak peaks at the beading - if that is allowed.

    I love the detail from your October page. I look forward to seeing more and learning about the relationship it represents.

    Welcome back to blog land, I have missed you so much.

  13. Aren't you glad you didn't have to go the full 9 months~lol. Congratulations on finishing your book and I'm sure you will have much success with it.

    I would be very interested in hearing about the process. How did you find a publisher or did you self-publish, marketing it, editing, the whole ball of yarn!

    Love the BJP!
