My First Book Signing is Here!

I will be signing copies of my newly released children’s book, The Night Before Christmas, on Friday, November 1, 5-8 p.m. at Curious Cup Bookstore, 5285 Carpinteria Ave., Carpinteria, CA.  I spent more than four years creating the 15 mosaics featured in the classic story written by Clement C. Moore.  The mosaics were made by hand cutting thousands of pieces of stained glass and fitting them together to create the illustrations.  If you are local, or are in town visiting, please come by and see me!

Hooray, my book is now available!!

It is the classic, The Night Before Christmas, written by Clement C. Moore and illustrated by me with stained glass mosaics.  It has been a four and a half year journey and I’m so excited I can finally share it with you!!  It is filled with personal touches, including my family, our cat, items in our home, and a dedication to my mother who recently passed away, that I was able to add right before the book went to the printers, so it is a true work of love for me.

The book can currently be purchased on my web site, and eventually on Amazon.  It was published by Brownian Bee Press, so if you’d like to also buy Barb Keith’s books at the same time, go over to her web site where she is selling my book as well as her two wonderful children’s books illustrated with her stained glass mosaics!
I hope you like my book, let me know!

My Books Have Arrived!

 My books arrived in Long Beach almost a month ago but were stuck in customs awhile and then there were some delivery issues.  But finally, the day has arrived!  Very exciting when the truck pulled up!!

So then I had to get creative about where to put 60 boxes of 3,000 books.  I just rearranged my husband's studio a bit (very nice of him to accommodate me).  What?  He can still work there!

As for when the book will be available to purchase, I am working on that and will post an update as soon as possible.  Here's a little peek!
