The book has been released for about two weeks. I am getting lots of emails, and some great reviews. Here is one from Quinn McDonald, a creative coach, writerÂ of the book Raw Art Journaling, and artist.
This week there are a few other book reviews going up, I will post them as soon as I the dates.
If you want a signed copy, there is a button here just to the left. I have to buy them, so it is not the cheapest deal, but you get my sig and a little map from me to go with it!
