Books, books, books..

Still working on my book. Many of you have asked how it's going. It's been great. Here's a teaser of the cover that Hope came up with using a piece of my art work. Love it!

I'm at the editing and final re-working stage and hope to have one off to the printer in the next few weeks to make sure it all looks good. Then I will have it available for all of you. Hurray!
Just want to make sure everything is good to go.
So that's the update...

In the meantime, here are a couple of fabulously fun books I recently came across about making books. The Book Book by Sophie Benini Pietromarchi and How to Make Books by Esther K. I heard Amanda talking about them both here.

I also have some really exciting news coming soon about publication and a teaching date in March (in LA), so stay tuned. Just when I thought February seemed dull and dreary and looonnnng...my life flipped into high gear. Careful what you ask for, huh?!

I've been coming back to your blog often and can not believe you're already this far along on your book! I love your stuff so can't wait for it to come out.
I also live in California (north) but love having an excuse for going down south, so I'm looking forward to hearing about your teaching trip out here.
