A while ago I mentioned that I wanted to add some book-related merchandise to my etsy shop. I have some items that are (almost) ready. There's a few things I need to finish up. They could be available on my shop by Saturday. Here is what I have.
Now, if you've read The Bride, you'll know the significance of the hourglass. If you haven't read it you can still enjoy how adorable these are. I purchased the empty hourglasses from another etsy shop and the tiny glass beads from an online craft store. I have thin white ribbon with a real clasp that can be added to make a necklace (it's about 18 inches), like the picture, or they can be used on a keychain or whatever else you can think of. I will have the option to just purchase the hourglass or get one with the ribbon.
Now, I only have ten. I didn't want to make a whole bunch until I knew if people wanted to buy them. I will ship them to anywhere in the 48 contiguous US. I may branch out to other places at some point. The prices are not yet determined. I would LOVE to know what you think and if anyone is interested already, because if enough people are I will order more parts. I will let you know when they're ready to go on my shop!
The Bride paperback is now on amazon, and it looks like amazon has lowered the price for it and Taela. Here's a link.
One more thing. Yesterday I opened a flickr account where I will post pictures, art, and other photos about my books. Though some of the pictures are also on my blog, I will be adding unique pictures that will only be found on my flickr page. For instance, right now there are some photo excerpts from The Bride and Taela. Check them out and feel free to follow me!
