The cover reveal of Rich Fabric.


We are nearing the end of phase 1!

The paperback is in the final stages of preparation. The beautiful cover is being created by Regina Wamba from MaeIDesign – and if this was baseball, she would be in the books for a grand slam homerun. The cover is AMAZING!

Rich Fabric – the paperback version has illustrations, black and white photos, quotes, short stories and memoirs. To say that I am proud of how this is shaping up would be a major understatement.

After the formatting gets approved by the publisher, the book should be available (fingers crossed) by September 15.

Rich Fabric – the multi-media, enhanced ebook version has everything in the paperback as well as color photographs, music and videos. The ebook should go live by Nov. 1.

AND – the MOST important part, all profits from the sale of Rich Fabric (both versions) will be donated to the Twilight Wish Foundation – a non-profit that grants wishes to senior citizens who live at or below poverty level.

Stay tuned for the launch!


I am DELIGHTED to share this with you.

I have been working on a new project – Rich Fabric, the Anthology.

It is a multi-media anthology that will include short stories, memoirs, biographies, poetry, illustrations, black and white as well as color photographs, and music.

The expected release date for Rich Fabric is September 2012.

It will be available through all major online booksellers and as many independent bookstores as possible!

If you are interested in promoting the book (we would love for you to do so!) or if you are a bookseller interested in carrying the book (again, love for you to do so), please contact me here in the comments or via email.

The profits from the sale of Rich Fabric will go to the Twilight Wish Foundation. You can find out more about this great non-profit organization here.

Here are just some of the AMAZING, CREATIVE and GENEROUS people who are involved with Rich Fabric.
