Big Wheel Press.

I’m thrilled to announce a very happy collaboration: beginning in January 2016, I have partnered with local letterpress maestro Bill Muller of Big Wheel Press to launch a *new* line of gorgeous letterpress cards. Working with Bill and becoming a Big Wheel artist is a thrill for so many reasons, not the least of which is that I’ve finally found someone who loves peanut butter as much as I do. In addition to letterpress cards + notebooks, Big Wheel will now be representing my full-color digital line as well as my 2017 GRATITUDE calendar, due out in May. Sneak peek below of some of the letterpress cards launching at NSS 2016 this month! Stop by booth 2259 and say hello!

Amazon bestseller!?

Fun news alert! My book, “Wear Gratitude (Like A Sweater)” was #99 out of 100 on Amazon’s bestseller NATURE POETRY section! Woot! See photo below. 

And for those of you who missed it, a dear friend came across a Nonfiction Best Seller’s List at Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, VT last year and my book, “Wear Gratitude Like A Sweater” was listed at No. 12! Wow! What an honor for my book to have hit bestseller status and share shelf space with one of my favorite writers, Elizabeth Kolbert and her book “The Sixth Extinction” as well as Cheryl Strayed’s “Wild”. After a bit of a scramble (What!!? My book was on a bestseller list!?) we discovered that the list was compiled by IndieBound an organization focused on collaborating with independently owned bookstores to promote newly discovered writers. Thanks IndieBound!

A big thank you to my publisher Rock Point Publishing and Quarto Gifts and my amazing editor.
