Someone pinch me. I cannot believe that I am telling you this, but a lifelong dream of mine is coming true.  I have always wanted to be an author, and have started and stopped a number of novels over the years. And now I’m going to be published! It’s not a novel…it’s an instructional guide to teach brush lettering!

It should be available for pre-order soon online, and will probably be published in Fall 2017 by Quarto. [I can’t even believe I just typed that! oooooo!]

 

To say thank you to all of my supporters and very encouraging friends, I am offering 4 Giveaways this month (February) on Instagram. I hope you can join me there and enter to win!

Here is this week’s Giveaway prize…actually 2 prizes: 5 black brush pens and 5 white pens …for 2 lucky winners. A big thank you to Jet Pens for sponsoring!
