Hi crafty chicas. hold my hands please, console me for a moment!
Tomorrow is the release of my fifth crafty book (it is a fun d-i-y book with all power pop Latino-themed projects). What am I freaking? Because all along my publisher has told me that I'm dealing with two niches - Latinos and crafts. "A niche within a niche".
All along I looked at it as the opposite: "I'm not targeting one big group, but TWO!". I'm optimistic!!
But now, on the eve of the book's release, I'm having a panic attack. They are the publisher, what if they are right and my book is never discovered because it truly is a "niche within a niche"?
So I'm on my knees right now, clasping my glitter-encrusted fingers to you all. Please, please, pretty please with a helping of expensive vintage glass glitter - will you help me spread the word far and wide? Here is the name of the book:
"Crafty Chica's Art de la Soul: Glittery Ideas to Liven Up Your Life" (Rayo, an imprint of Harper Collins). Tell your peeps it is only $13.57 on Amazon! Buy two and shipping is free!!!
I know in my heart that there is an audience for Virgin of Guadalupe fabric collage art. And a string of patio lights made from nasty Mexican romance comics. Did I mention the Aztec Body Fondue?
Tonight I'm lighting a row of hot pink prayer candles that I embellished with pictures from my book, in the hopes that I will wake up tomorrow (and the next days) and my book wll be "My Big Fat Latino Craft Book" success...
A chica can dream, right?
Peace, love, glitter and eternal good karma if you even tell ONE person. It can even be the grocery store clerk, or the mailman.
P.S. Whoops, guess I should put the link...http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0060789425/ref=cm_arms_pdp_dp/104-9869729-2531114?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance&n=283155
