I finally pushed that send button.
I told myself I’d do it last summer, but I didn’t. I was going to do it over Christmas vacation, but I didn’t. OK, do it on spring break, I said, but I didn’t. Finally, in April, on my birthday, I pushed the button.
Jan, Katie and Karin sent good thoughts out into the universe for me.
My book proposal hurdled straight through cyberspace, latched on to those good thoughts and carried them along with it as they all neatly landed together in Roxane Cerda’s inbox.
Apparently all those good thoughts worked.
It must’ve been perfect timing.
Because a few weeks later, Stash Books said they would love to be my publisher.
WOW!! Somebody pinch me!
I’ve been so excited and busy all summer, sewing, photographing tutorials, and writing. I really wanted to tell you, but I waited until I turned in my first draft.
So far, it’s been an amazing experience. So much to learn about this whole writing process. I just closed my eyes and jumped in with both feet to this new world I’ve been so fortunate to be able to join. All the editors, photographers and art directors I’ve been in contact with have been nothing but helpful, patient, kind and encouraging. I am truly humbled and grateful to have such an incredible team of people working with me on this book.
They are flying me to California in September for a photo shoot. OUCH! I just pinched myself again.
I can’t give away too much of the book, but I’m sure you have a pretty good idea on what it’s going to be about. Wink, wink…. I’ll keep you updated and let you know when the release date gets closer because rumor has it, I’ll have a few copies to give away here.
I. Can’t. Wait.
Now that my draft has been turned in, I’m looking forward to posting tutorials here for you again. So many fun events coming up… new refashions and of course, Season Two of Refashion Runway.
In the meantime, I have so many of these, I want to give some away to you…
Feel free to take one anytime you’d like.
