The "secret" revealed 11-18-11

I can tell you now! I'm getting a book published!

NOT self-published, like my previous books, but by a REAL publisher!!! You've heard of Annie's Attic from DRGnetwork? They've informed me that my book, Tatted Jewelry, will go on sale 11-18-11, just in time for Christmas gifts. That's the "secret" I was working on April through June.

Can't wait to get my greedy hands on a copy.

(I almost accepted a job as an editorial assistant with the House of White Birches several years back...went to work for a Military Leisure Time magazine instead.)

Thank you, everyone, for the wonderful comments!
I was so excited to share, that I didn't think about the publishing date being a long time away. Actually, many of the patterns selected by the publisher are ones that I've already self-published. The goal for this book is to grab the attention of people outside of the current tatting community - we'll see what happens!

Congratulations!! Kudos!! Wooo-hooo! This is great news. You always have such a way with photos and showing your work to such advantage, I think it will really grab the attention of people out there, not currently a member of our on-line tatting communitee. I'm looking forward to seeing it. Great job!
