So nice meeting you at Market Jessica and all of us at C&T & Stash Books are super excited about your book!

Congratulations! I'd love for you to share more on that - especially how you went about getting a proposal to Stash. I've got an idea for a book that I'm really excited about, but I'm not sure how to get started making the projects since presumably I'll need step-by-step photos, too (and I'm not a professional photographer)! But...what a dream! Thanks!

Elle-

I do hope to share more about the process online, but in the mean time, to give you an idea, you do not need to have the projects done to submit a proposal. Every author does their own format, but you can show drawing etc. But its a good idea to have some done or at least a portfolio of your work to share with them. If you get a book deal, they will do all the photography so dont worry about that. But if you are doing step-by-step how-tos youll need to make extra pieces that show each step so they can take them.

If you go to the Stash website they have guidlines for submitting a proposal: http://www.stashbooksblog.com/write-a-book/

Good luck!

Thanks for sharing this one. I like too much. I will try for this with my daughter on next weekend.

Can't wait to grab one copy of that book of yours. I am planning to give that to my youngest as a Christmas gift these holidays.
