On my mind.....

I finished another "secret project" this week.  I had a lot of fun quilting this particular quilt.  It was simpler quilting for me.  Funny, sometimes I crave simple, but then I miss the detail.  Goes to show that it's hard to be content with where you are at.  ;-)  I will work on that, the content part.  

So, a couple things on my mind.  Do you remember the drama way back when I first started this whole book process?  In a nut shell, my editor left or was fired, they never let me know.  Then, when the book was supposed to come out they called me up and said, hey - we aren't doing your book.  Nice. 

Thankfully, through some amazing support from all of you and some dear friends, I was lead to an amazing publishing company who took on my book idea.  Full force, here we come with the publishing date of August 2013.  Well, sad to say, that date is long gone with no book in hand and now I have people contacting me telling me that my book is selling on Amazon, so why haven't I shipped theirs out yet?  Well, I don't have it, and neither does Amazon.  We are still pre-selling my book, and so is Amazon.  Wouldn't you know it?  My executive book editor left the company mid book process.  Maybe it's me?  I don't know, I think I am supposed to learn patience.  I feel like I have been patient, but I am finding it more difficult because of all of you out there waiting just like me.  You have paid for a product that was supposed to come out two months ago.  I am so sorry about that. 

Good news though, I have had several of you contact me telling me you have seen one of my book projects at AQS Quilt Week in Des Moines.  So, yes - the book is coming out, but with the changes in the company it is taking longer than anyone could have thought.  So, to sum it up, I don't have a release date.  I can't tell you when it will be out, but I can tell you it is close to the final process of being edited.  After that we will have to wait for the printer.  So, please be patient with me while I am being patient with them.  It really is just a hiccup in the process and I hope that it will all be worth it in the end.  I am sorry to all of you who have been waiting, but again - I am so thankful for your support. 

If you haven't pre-ordered it yet and would like to, you can do that here.
