Oh Joy

{my new book!} creative, inc. + book tour dates...
16 Aug 2010

Hooray! I'm happy to announce the launch of my new book with Meg Mateo Ilasco, Creative, Inc. The book gives the 411 on how to be a successful freelance creative and covers everything from creating a standout portfolio to working with clients to navigating the legal issues of starting a business. This is the book I wish I had when I started my freelance business 5 years ago.

Big thanks to Design*Sponge for posting a sneak peek of the stop-motion film we created for the book today. Filmed by Thayer Allyson Gowdy, featuring music by Boy Girl Party, and starring yours truly and my co-author Meg, check out our little film above for an animated excerpt from the book {click above to play and be sure to turn up the volume}. Also, we'll be making three stops for our book tour in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York – and I'll be sure to post reminders and RSVP information for each event as it gets closer.


Starting next week, some of our favorite bloggers {including Poppytalk, Oh Happy Day, SFGirlByBay, Grain Edit, Not Martha, Book By Its Cover, Mint, Wit & Delight, Decor 8, and more} will be hosting giveaways, sharing interviews with us, and more behind-the-scenes on the book...so stay tuned! So for now, we hope you enjoy the film...and look forward to meeting many of you at our upcoming book signings! The book can be purchased through Chronicle or Amazon {and on the Kindle} as well as other shops where books are sold.
