For anyone with dreams of writing a book, read this from the NY Times last Sunday, May 13th. And after you read it, know that writing a knitting book will not, I repeat, will not, make you rich with a large advance.
Bubbles burst - I know. But I'm still trying despite the meager income (or lack there of).
p.s. The link will expire in 30 days from publication so read this quickly. It is extremely interesting.
p.p.s. Buying a book direct from me - autographed - will keep the fires burning here on the farm along with the animals and people fed. I'll be offering Kristin Knits to you, my loyal blog readers, along with a free something Amazon will never give you sometime closer to publication in August. If you believe in supporting the little guy, perhaps you'll support me. And by all means, buy the book from your local yarn store to support them too! It is a totally difficult way to make a living - both writing and yarn store-ing. Thanks from all of us.
