It’s official, the book is OUT! Pre-order-ers got their copies last week, and now it’s shipping immediately from Amazon. I received three boxes full this weekend, and I have to say that even though I have had an advance copy for some time, nothing prepares you for the thrill of seeing a big stack of them on your table. WOW. I wanted to take pictures of the boxes arriving and me opening them, but a) I wasn’t home and b) they were delivered Fedex rather than UPS, so my plan for a shot of my UPS-guy-who-looks-like-Roger-Sterling holding a copy of my book was blown. You will just have to imagine it.
The Stash Books Blog has a wonderful introductory post and giveaway. And there are a couple reviews already:
Generation Q says “What we really like about this book is that Kimberly assumes from the start you whoever picks it up and follows its guidance will become a big enough name in the q-world to warrant her information on licensing and copyright. That’s just cool!”
and Helen of BellaOnline, who is a doll maker, writes “I have rarely, if ever, thought about the fabric I buy to make dolls and doll clothes with, beyond the color and if I like it. I do sometimes consider the fiber content, but never thought about where the pattern came from, the designer, the choice of colors and how the design gets put on the fabric. Needless to say, this book has opened my eyes.”
Thanks very much to Jake and the Gen Q gang, and to Helen! And to Stash! Cheers!
