Self Publishing an E-book: Designers POV with Linda Permann
Marly and Linda Permann talk about traditional publishing vs self-published e-books. Listen and learn from Linda’s experience in both worlds. She published two books, Little Crochet and Crochet Adorned, and was approached by the Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project to do a crochet project. From there Linda considered the option of self-publishing. She tells of her timeline in getting from design to finished product. Her team to help out included Caro Sheridan for photography and Heather Crank for graphic layout.
Her new book Sugar and Spice has six designs were inspired by her love of crocheted texture—and desserts, ranging from simple to ornate. Bubbling cherries swim a cobbler crust, embossed designs adorn an Italian cookie, and glowing beads of sugar dance along the edge of a freshly baked pie. Just like a delicious dessert, a beautiful hat, shawl or sweater will leave you feeling warm and content. You can purchase this e-book on Craftsy or Ravelry!
