I just can't help myself really. I just have to tell you. Well why wouldn't I? Unless I was shy, retiring, humble and kept anything at all to myself - THEN I might not tell you. But as I am none of these things.....
Yesterday morning there was an email from the UK publisher Search Press to say that Wild Tea Cosies is in the Nielson Book Data Top 50 Handicrafts, Arts & Crafts Titles for 2009 Week 4. This category includes books about painting, drawing, felting, quilting, sewing, beading and scrapbooking. There is even a book about things to do in a shed.
The Nielson Book Data List (UK) comes from bookstores point of sale scans and by all accounts is not to be sniffed at. Not that any of you would sniff at a list. Or anything at all really. Wild Tea Cosies came in at No.47. Oi. What was that noise?
It is ON THE LIST. It is important to be on the list.
The photos? Well one I brought with me and one I found here.
