The Kick Off


Join me at The Altered Page beginning tomorrow, March 1st, as I kick off the celebration of the release of my book The Pulse of Mixed Media. As of today, the book is now shipping from both the North Light Shop and Barnes & Noble. Amazon will begin shipping soon. I will be hosting a series of online and live events that I hope you will join. I will be adding new events in the coming weeks and you can always click the links on my sidebar under the heading 'book release tour' to see the latest list.

I couldn't be any happier with North Light Books and my editor, the amazing Tonia Davenport. Here is a taste of the layout of the book. The left page is a composite of artwork from contributing artists Danny Gregory, Pam Carriker, and Orly Avineri.


-------------------


The online celebration kicks off tomorrow with 31 Artists/31 Days. You will find a post every single day in March that introduces you to each of the 31 spotlight artists in my book. See their beautiful faces, read their 'quirky' bios written in their own words, see some of their art that led me to invite them to be a part of my book, and hear my story of what they each mean to me. Then click on over to their sites and see what they have to say about The Pulse of Mixed Media. I am very excited about this blog tour...and it is only the first of many online events that will unfold. 

But what is a blog tour without a giveaway! Anytime during the month of March that you leave a comment on a 31/31 post on my blog or on a 31/31 post on the blogs of the participating artists, you will have one chance to win. So if you leave a comment on all 31 days on every site...you will have 62 chances to win. And the best part are the prizes. As I travel throughout the country on my book tour, I will be meeting many of the 133 artists that are part of the book. And each one will be signing several copies of the book, one of which will be the first prize for the 31/31 giveaway. (You will hear more about the other signed copies soon). The second and third prize will also be a copy of the book but with just a single signature...mine!

So please mark your calendars and stop by my blog for the festivities. And look for an announcement in the coming days telling how you can become a participant in a very special online component to The Pulse of Mixed Media.
-------------
For all you Tweeters:  There will be a Twitter launch party for my book on Wednesday, March 21st from 9-10pm EST. More info on that soon. Also, I will be announcing events and sharing live updates from my book tour on Twitter. To stay current and not miss a tweet, be sure to follow #pulsebook - the hashtag that will be attached to every one of my book-related tweets.

Roberta said...

Congratulations on your book launch...I can't wait to see the entire book. I feel we have a "studio" connection seeing as how our studios were featured in Cloth Paper Scissors and we were right next "door" to each other...lol Yeah I know...it's a stretch but I happy to be associated with such a talented multi-media artist. Fondly, Roberta
