And so, I’m an author!

And so, I’m an author!

About 3 years ago I went to a business presentation and it was recommended that people who seriously wanted to become an influencer in their area of expertise (and I am very keen to get people connected to their creativity through success with art) should write a book.

A real, touch it, feel it, thump it on the table… book.

At that stage I had been running Paint Alongs in my studio for about 18 months and I had a repertoire of painting subjects I could call on.

So I put together a list of publishers who might be suitable for my market (beginner/social painters) and went about preparing submissions. The first publisher I contacted was North Light Books and to my absolute delight they got back in touch with me on 30 June 2014 to tell me they’d like to publish my book, “Painting Party”.

 

Since then there has been a series of deadlines to provide content and photos, while they went to work asking me questions, editing and designing. And lo and behold… it’s now available for pre-order on Amazon (cue stunned happiness).

I’ll have signed copies available closer to the publication date… very excited!

The lovelies at Cloth Paper Scissors have turned one of my book projects into a Painting Party Pack!

My book will be published in late April so this really makes things seem real!

And check out this video they’ve put together explaining the pack:

(It’s so weird – happy weird – to think this is all happening on the other side of the world! I get excited when locals paint my projects!)
