Setting up a book tour…
So yesterday Nicole and I had a fabulous lunch (at the Green Bean right here in beautiful downtown Northampton–go) with our fellow Western Mass resident and Storey author Kari Chapin. We were so lucky to be able to pick the brains of the whipsmart author of the super-successful book The Handmade Marketplace and the forthcoming (in July) Grow Your Handmade Business.
Kari gave us a ton of great suggestions for getting the word out about our own book (no! you don’t know what i’m talking about?). We are currently on the prowl for crafty venues, awesome thrift stores, fabric and sewing shops, and craft-oriented bookstores that might like to host a demo, class, or signing. We’ve already got dates in the Denver area, we’re working on the Bay Area and New York, and we’re hoping to hit Austin, the DC/Baltimore area, Boston, and heck, any other place that will have us. Do you know of a likely spot? The suggestion box is open, below! Help us and you will be richly rewarded.*
*With our undying gratitude and, if we end up booking an event, something stitched and beautiful, mailed directly to your home.
