Shop update

go ahead, fly.....available here

Happy Wednesday guys! wow, what a last couple of weeks. I wanted to let you know that I have updated the shop with some small fun paintings.
And to tell you i'm almost finished with the book......I have decided on Hinkle's Hunch for the title. After I let my mom read it to me out loud as I flipped through the illustrations for her, I realized that I needed one more illustration towards the beginning. I am so loving the process! I still have not decided on the publisher.....blurb or lulu.....my quandary is this.....i believe lulu is the one that you can use to sell your book on amazon. but i have heard so many good things about blurb. does anyone know if blurb will publish it for you to sell on amazon? I LOVE blurb's book layout software and have been tinkering with it for the last few days. its awesome!

I have also been working on a website and its pretty much finished. I still need to work it out a little. I am also considering using big cartel as my shop. I am certainly not ready to give up my etsy shop yet so I may put this on hold. I will "launch" my website in a week or two. I am so excited and have been so inspired on KRR's flying lessons.... this is just what I needed to get my butt in gear. 

I just found out that 2 of my favorite artist's are holding e-courses of their own: mati rose and claudine hellmuth....OMG.....cannot wait!!! 

take care guys....!

  5. oh good luck with your book!

    i've used blurb and really liked it. i'm not sure about the amazon question, but i do know a gal that buys her's from blurb then sells them on etsy.com.

    i also have made two books through createspace.com and they were made by amazon. so any book you make there, they automatically put on amazon.

    i've done very well with createspace. haven't sold any books through blurb...

  9. oh wow, awesome stuff is happening for you right now, congratulations!

    I love the title of the book, and I'm not positive about this, but I think you can have your book added to Amazon wherever you publish it. For some reason, I have it in my mind that Amazon takes anyone...but you need to send them your books yourself. Don't quote me on this though. :)
