My BIG NEWS!
I am so thrilled to finally to be able to spill the beans! Now I know how so many of you feel about not being able to say that you are writing a book. I do not know how you manage to keep it to yourselves for months–I could hardly last a week! The full press release is here. I will begin my role as the Editorial Director for Interweave Books at the end of this month. I cannot tell you how excited I am about this tremendous opportunity to work with the creative team at Interweave. It is going to mean big changes around here and we will begin a gradual move from the CA to CO over the coming months. I know. And just when we finished the garage-to-studio conversion. Typical.
Beginnings mean endings too, and I am sad to leave all of my colleagues at C&T Publishing. I am very proud to have been a part of what the team at C&T have achieved in the past three years and am looking forward to buying copies of all of the great titles they will have coming out in the next few years.
I thought that I would want to take some time to relax, finish up some projects around the house….maybe even sew (gasp!). As my husband predicted, I’m no good with that and am eager to get started. So, I will be attending the TNNA event in Phoenix next weekend. I hope to see my Phoenix friends there and to meet some new ones! I’ll be tweeting from my @craftyeditor account, so get in touch so I can say hello. Looking forward to…well, everything!
