E-book Release Announcement! 🎉

For #throwbackthursday this week I’m pulling this moment from the archives; the moment I sent the final draft of Unravelled to my kindle for my last ever read through before it went to print! 😱

I remember how once the document was open, it felt like I was reading an e-book straight from Amazon, already published, already out there in the big wide world. 🌎I know it sounds crazy, but it was one of the first moments I actually saw Unravelled as a “book”.

Well today, I am very excited to announce that that day dream is about to become a reality. Unravelled’s 1st birthday is coming up and I thought what better way to celebrate than with the release of it’s e-book!

So on November 1st 2018, I will be celebrating the e-book release of Unravelled with an online party across my social media and you’re all invited!🎉🎉🎉 (Expect: wine, q&as and lots of knitting!)

More details to follow over the next couple of days. 👀

The Quiet Knitter Review.

Unravelled really is a great book, and perfect for the wool addict and craft fanatic. – The Quiet Knitter

Hey everyone 👋,

Sorry for the silence. Things have been bubbling away nicely in my world, which gifted me an impromptu break. However, today has given me reason to take to the keyboard for a good cause!

Last month I was approached by Kate, from The Quiet Knitter, to see if I’d be interested in being part of her celebration of indie publishing, and of course I said yes!

I know I’m a little bias, but what a fantastic thing to celebrate? In the day to day runnings of life it’s so easy to get caught up in the big names and big brands and even easier to not hear the voice of the little guys. In my local town I’ve been very sad to see a lot of small local businesses closing their doors for the final time, due to the appearance of bigger named companies moving in just up the road. (And the publishing industry is no different!) It’s heart breaking, so a celebration of indie was just what I wanted to see land in my inbox!

If there’s one thing my Unravelled journey has taught me, it’s the importance of support. Together myself and The Writing Hall have created a product for sale, but because I don’t have the fan-base of say, Beyoncé, the sales aren’t guaranteed. Indie’s have to work hard at it. And with the wonderful support I’ve had throughout my journey, my small “business” has blossomed to the point where I’m currently at the very beginnings of book two. (Which is absolutely incredible!) Support means the absolute world to us, so a celebration of indie publishing is a fantastic idea!

Kate has given Unravelled a wonderful review and it was so heart-warming to read. ❤️ It’s day’s like today that give me that “living on a cloud” feeling all over again. Plus, we even got chance to conduct a mini interview for the blog. So you can head over and read my answers to her questions too. Just click here to read the whole article.

To all my lovely readers, I just want to take this opportunity to again thank you for everything. When you support indie, you really do make a dream come true. 💫

Yarn Shop Day 2018 Exclusives! 🎉

Yarn Shop Day 2018 is nearly upon us! (Only 2 more sleeps in fact!) So I thought now would be the perfect time to a) Start getting excited 💃🏻 and b) Give you a little sneak peek of how myself and Unravelled are getting involved this year.

For those of you who don’t know what Yarn Shop Day is, it is a celebration of all things wool and local. You get to show your local yarn shop some love, take advantage of some exclusive offers and even do your bit for charity, all whilst having fun!

I was lucky enough to be a special guest last year for my local! (You can read all about my experience in last year’s blog.) However this year, with Unravelled now being with us in all its glory, I’ve got two Yarn Shop Day exclusives for you all!

I’ve teamed up with the lovely Helen from Beacon Crafts to bring you my first Unravelled X YSD exclusive! For one day only, if you come down to Beacon Crafts and join in the celebrations, you can pick up not only a signed copy of Unravelled, but you get my Adrian Scarf Knitting pattern absolutely free! So for those of you in the Midlands area click here for the Beacon Crafts Facebook page, where you’ll be able to find the shop address as well as other sneak peeks of their YSD preparations!

I am also very excited to announce that Unravelled will be a part of Yarn Shop Day in Scotland too this year! Faye from Wool For Ewe will be the first Scottish shop to stock the Unravelled paperback and one lucky winner from her YSD raffle will also have the chance to bag themselves a signed copy! How awesome is that? You can find the Wool For Ewe Facebook Page here.

I would love to see your pictures! Use the tag #unravelledxysd to let me know what you get up to this Yarn Shop Day!
