Last week a very special delivery arrived on my doorstep — an advance copy of my book, Handmade Hostess! The book ships into stores next month and will be available on Amazon on March 16, 2013. The publisher sent early copies to my sister and me.
I tore open the package with butterflies in my stomach. It really is just as beautiful as I had always hoped it would be.
I will admit that I immediately thought who can I show this to?! That’s one of the challenging parts about moving really far away from your family and friends. I wish I could invite all of you over to my house and give you a little sneak peek over tea and cookies.
Well, there are two ways we can almost do that.
First, look inside is now working on Amazon, so you really can peek inside the book.
And second, did you know there is a Handmade Hostess board on Pinterest? Yep! There are a bunch of preview photos from 6 different chapters! I would LOVE it if you would repin these and help spread the word.
I have been thinking about this a lot lately as I work on PR for the book. It’s not enough just to produce something pretty. It truly is the support and interaction with all of you that gives something like this life. We all have choices these days about where to turn to for inspiration and ideas — and it means a lot that you would come here. Thanks.
