This is a picture of all the beautiful books on display in the reception of Search Press's offices, hopefully mine has now joined their ranks!
I'll put links to all the relevant posts below as I write them:
Book deal announcement
Why I decided to write a book
The proposal and contract
The planning meeting
First draft finished
Naming the book
Promoting the book
The emotional side of writing a book
An interview on the Search Press website about writing my book
How I promoted my book - Part 1
Book promotion - Part 2
A couple of my friends are also writing craft books and blogging about the process so do take a read of Tilly's experience and Susan's. They are both writing for different publishers to me, and are writing project based books so their experiences are a little different to mine.
There's also a great couple of posts on craft book publishing on the Sew McCool blog.
Plus you'd probably enjoy this post called 'Is it worth writing a craft book'
