For the past few months as I’ve seen friends they often ask how the book is doing, and how things are going now that the book has launched. Though this is my first effort, things seem to be going really well, and I’m so grateful!
When I set out to share this book I wanted to be able to connect with others - other artists, nonprofit friends, entrepreneurs - anyone struggling as they take the next steps to do their thing. Anyone feeling alone in that process. Since the launch, I’ve heard back from friends and even a few strangers that the book has encouraged them to take the next step on their idea. If I had set a specific bar for success - that would be a big one!
I’ve also gotten some positive press:
The Red Wing Republican Eagle did an author feature in connection with a talk I gave at the Red Wing Public Library: https://www.republican-eagle.com/entertainment/books/4528569-minnesota-author-visits-red-wing-talk-creative-placemaking
The Northeaster featured the opening event, which drew a great crowd (page 11): https://www.mynortheaster.com/wp-content/news-archives/181031Northeaster/?fbclid=IwAR1ij1o-DfhbIvA9uEs0IAHdcDCIyQvHojTUWYHhgX1O8CRJTHvXtDs08oo#page=1
And last but most certainly not least, Athena Currier (designer and illustrator) selected it as her favorite project for the year. ::tears:: http://themarjorie.com/2018/12/04/its-never-going-to-work/
As we prep for the holidays, a great idea for a unique gift is an author-signed book! Do you know anybody creative that could use an inspiring read to help get over that hurdle?
