Friday the 13th

It's Friday the 13th and I have had a grueling day of trying to get this blog up and running. When I began researching writing this blog the articles I read made it seem so easy. I must confess that I am truly technologically challenged. Count me in as a right brainer (that is the creative side, right - not the analytical one?). In short, just like most things in life this process is harder than it looks. The writing and finding content are the fun parts. I just wish the set up and submission etc was a bit less complicated. But enough complaining!

My first book The Design Directory of Window Treatments is available on now even though it isn't going to be released until September. I must say it was very cool to see it there. It's kind of like seeing your picture in your high school yearbook.

I have a great publisher, Gibbs Smith. They produce beautiful books on a variety of subjects including architecture and interior design. Some titles you may recognize:

Charles Faudree's Country French Living
by Charles Faudree

Inspirations from France & Italy
by Betty Lou Phillips

Scalamandre: Luxurious Home Interiors
by Brain Coleman

Wait, is that a new Betty Lou Phillips book? I've not seen it! Is it out? ok, I'm going to Amazon right now. Thanks. And I can preorder your book while I'm there, so exciting!
