My Book!

Well, as I mentioned, an advance copy of my book finally made it to me a couple weeks ago! What a wonderful surprise, as I didn't think I'd get to see it until it's released sometime in October. It's so exciting seeing what those many months of work all culminated to become!

Obviously, I knew what the text was going to be, since I wrote it, but I had no idea what the design of the book would look like! My designer, Amanda, did a wonderful job of creating a book that really melds well with my artwork. What a fun job she must have-taking an artist's work and trying to design a book around it! It's really interesting to look through and see bits and pieces of my art that she's used in the background or as accents.
So here are some sneak peek photos of the results. To see more, you'll have to, as they say, "buy the book!" I've added an Amazon link over on the left. However, I'm also thinking of offering signed copies which include a limited edition print of a piece of artwork. I've seen that a couple other authors have done this. I would sell them for $30, shipping included. Is anyone out there interested? I haven't decided for sure whether to do this, so please let me know if you'd be interested- it will help me make my decision!

That's all for now. Don't forget to get your name in the hat for the give-a-way from my last post- there's still a few days left! And there are still plenty packs which haven't sold as well, if you'd like one!

Wow, Corey! It seems like yesterday that you were asking us if we thought you should write a book! And here it is. It looks gorgeous, and I can hardly wait to get my hands on one. I'll let you know when the Vancouver bookstores start carrying it.
