    It is one of my goals in life to have a craft book published. What a great opportunity.

    i’ve just written a craft book, with an american publisher. it was a great project to do, don’t know if i’ll do it again, but as a designer, it is lovely having the book now in my hand.

    but… a dose of reality. things to bear in mind are craft books do have a niche market, an advance payment is not always guaranteed, and if it is, it comes off any royalties. there is a lot of work involved in writing a book, it will take months. and then there’s the amazon reviews to look forward too!

    besides all that, go for it! : )

    The idea of writing a book is so appealing to me… I want to be like JR Hartley looking for his Fly Fishing book when I’m old!

    Thanks Catherine for posting about this for us and we wish you the best of luck with the new venture :)
