Reflect and Remember
December is the perfect time to reflect and remember all the people who have impacted our lives in the past year. Often, that list remains static and dependable: family, friends, and pets.
They top our holiday gift and Christmas card lists, the people we spend our time and money on. A treasure, to be sure, but as I continue down the road to self-publishing success, I’ve met many new people. Talented women who market and sell a product worth mentioning. Perhaps one that would complete your shopping in time to enjoy the season.
Years before I was Jamie’s client, did you know she was mine? I care for her three cats, who refer to me as “Auntie,” even though one refuses to let me touch him. (I’m persistent, Baxter.) It’s fascinating. How people come into our lives, seemingly for one reason, and before you know it, the relationship morphs into something more.
As I was familiar with Jamie before I even considered publishing, I saw her work and formed an opinion long before it was necessary. Believe me, when I tell you, she is the best of the best in graphic design! (Some examples: the first two photos above and my novel and novella covers, found on the Books page of this website.)
Technology tests character
Do you know anyone struggling to build a website or brand? Someone who does what they do so well they’ve hung their own shingle, but (like me!) technology escapes them? Your fear of the world wide web may make you too timid to put yourself out there. If any of this applies, then look no further. Fat Cat Design can handle this and so much more. Presents don’t have to come in boxes and bags, and the gift of bottomless talent is sure to top anyone’s list.
No one was more surprised than me to discover I’d enjoy attending craft fairs to sell my books. But if you ever meet the following people, you’ll understand why.
Do you seek a unique present that no one would expect but anyone would love? Keep reading.
Bonus: nothing showcased here is limited to the holidays. So if you’re finished with the heavy lifting, you can prepare for birthdays, graduations, bar mitzvahs, and the like in 2023.
Stay tuned for an interview blog with Kathy coming in 2023. Her answers are like arrows, straight to the point and sharp. So fun!
You don’t meet witches every day, and Suzanne was a pleasure to chat with and get to know during our downtime. So if you’re in the market for “A Luxury Boutique For All Things Magick,” look no further. A good witch, you can feel safe working with Suzanne on Etsy or following her on Tiktok.
I plan to double the number of fairs I attend next year, including book-specific ones. Because of these gals, I’m excited about the prospect. Thank you for the gift you didn’t know you gave!
Happy shopping and a blessed holiday season to all!
