Sewing, crafting, inspiration…
I’m so excited to let you into a little secret I’ve been keeping under wraps. As you’ll have seen from the title of this post, I have recently signed on the dotted line to write my first craft book with American publishers Martingale & Co. (That Patchwork Place).
I was extremely lucky to have received offers from two different publishers (gosh, that was just the most amazing thing!) So after much decision making, I chose Martingale. Phew! It’s been a mad year so far. I sent out the proposals way back at the beginning of the year, not realising just how long it takes to go through the acceptance process. Now, I can finally get on with the sewing and the writing of all the projects and have just sent off my first chapter for editing.
My book is still along way off from hitting the shops, it takes a year or so to go through all the writing, editing, designing and publishing stages. So we’re looking at end 2014 / beginning 2015 – seems a long way off but I’m sure it’ll come around quick enough. Over the next few months I’ll keep you up to date with how the writing and planning is going, giving you a little insight into the craft book publishing process. I can’t wait to start talking about the book itself and what it will contain, but I’m afraid I have to keep this under wraps for now. So while I can’t show any images about my book at the moment, I thought you might like to see some of Martingale’s other books.
