publicity is beginning!













The official release date of my book is February 14 but I know that copies are stocked and beginning to ship. In fact, in less than a week I hope to finally have a copy IN MY HANDS! {There's that GIDDYSPEAK again} My book. In my hands.


















Publicity efforts are getting underway, too! I have a guest post at my publisher's blog and the first review of my book can be found at the Decor-Art Blog -- and it's the loveliest review a tinkerer could ever ask for.


















I've been told that 5-Star reviews on Amazon are extremely helpful for sales and author rankings and all kinds of things that are very new to me so if you purchase a copy, I would so appreciate your taking the time to post a review at Amazon.


















Feel like I should prepare a birth announcement! Bubble gum cigars?

Elyse...wanted to tell you that I received a review copy of your book today, and will put up a very five-star-ish review this week. It really is beautiful!

Btw, I don't comment here, but have been following you for ages. Guess I'm an admiring lurker. :)
