« 5 Productivity Tips for Polymer Clay Mommies | Main | That's Clever Air Date »

I've been eager to share this with you guys, but I wanted to wait til it was all officially official. Well, I got the signed contract back from the publisher yesterday, so here goes...

I've been asked to co-author a polymer clay book! It's called Polymer Clay 101, and I'm writing it along with Kim Otterbein. The publication date is currently scheduled for January 2011. Of course, my part needs to be done much sooner than that, so posts here may be a tad sparse for a little while.

Writing a book has been a long-time goal of mine — the kind of big goal you're almost afraid to talk about because you're afraid it won't happen. So I'm very excited for this opportunity. I have a lot to learn, but I've really enjoyed the work so far. Hopefully, once the book it out, you'll enjoy the projects as much as I have!


Congratulations! That's SO exciting! I enjoy your blog and I can't wait to see the book.

Congratulations! This has been a big year for you, huh? :o)

I'll be looking forward to hearing more about the book! (2011 seems like such a long time from now, but it'll be here before we know it.)

Congrats Angela! That's terrific news! I look forward to seeing it.

Congratulations Angela! I'm sure it will be done very well. I've had 2 books published (years ago on something totally different) and so I know how much hard work and time is involved.

That is very exciting news. Congratulations!

Thank you all so much for the kind words.

And for those of you who commented or emailed that that 2011 sounds like a long way away... I think I'm okay with time inching along, at least for the months until my deadline. After that, I'm sure I'll be ready for time to fly! :-)

Dear Angela,

Congratulations on your book. I have pre-ordered it. Could you tell me if the date for it being released is still January 2011?

Thanks so much.


Hi Nanou, Thanks for pre-ordering! Yes, as far as I know, it will still be released in January 2011. (At least the publishers haven't told me anything different.) I'll definitely update my blog if there are any changes. Thanks again!
