Fit To Print

totally twisted proofs 1

Shhh... I don't know if I am really cleared to share this with y'all or not, but I can't keep it in any longer. The FedEx fella brought me the most incredible package last week!! These are the laser proof pages for my book!! We are in the final stages of editing and the book is getting ready to be sent to the printers. I have spent the past few days going over every bit of this with a fine tooth comb making sure it is perfect.

There is so much I want to tell you about it!! Alas, I can't, not yet, it is too soon. I will tell you this... the title... Totally Twisted: Innovative Wire Work & Glass Art Jewelry and it should be available for pre-order on November 1st. It is getting so close I can almost taste it!! I plan to have signed copies available on my website, so stay tuned for that.

I also received another goodie in the mail yesterday... a copy of the episode of Beads, Baubles & Jewels that I appear in. And guess what? It doesn't suck!! LOL. I am my own worse critic and I was wonderfully surprised that my voice didn't sound nasally, I sounded like I knew what I was doing, I didn't "um" too much, lol, and the jewelry looked great. There is a moment at the end where I was at a loss for words, but even that wasn't so bad. Visit the Beads, Baubles, and Jewels website here: http://www.pubtv.net/online/ks/BBJ/index.asp to check you local listings and see when it is on in your area. My episode is #1110. This show really is a wealth of information for beaders and jewelry makers. You should check it out!! AND, did you know you can order the back seasons on dvd at the Interweave Store? Yep, you can. Right here: http://www.interweavestore.com/Beading-Jewelry/Video/Beads-Baubles-and-Jewels-TV.html

I need to get my nose back in these pages and email my lovely editor Jean Campbell the list of changes by this afternoon. Thankfully it is gray and cold out... there is nothing better than curling up with a warm mug of coffee and a good book on a day like today!
