Tessalation! Or: when little projects take over…

p08House
Greetings! I wanted to let you all know of another project I’m doing, which just happens to involve my obsession with patterns.

A couple of years ago, I wrote a children’s book called Tessalation! and promptly put it in a drawer.

These things happen. I’m sure every writer has a ton of these projects just waiting for their time in the sun.

Well, despite the gloomy and despondency-producing greyness in Oregon right now, the time for Tessalation! is NOW!

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to hire an illustrator to get this book out in the world. You know, just slap the thing together, put it up on Kindle and call it a day.

Ah, the best laid plans. After posting some images of the book on FB and receiving a ton of interest, I’ve decided to explore printing a small first run of this book.

I’m not interested in clogging up your inboxes with news you don’t want, and I realize this is a little different that perfume/mind body/memoir/feng shui and the usual you get from me, but if you are interested in children’s book publishing, pattern-making or just want to follow along as I feel my way through this process, I’ve started a blog on the book site about it.

I’ve barely started this and have already had to answer a ton of creative and industry questions for myself as I go. I hope that I’ll be able to inspire other people to dust off old projects and watch them fly!
