After months of deliberation, I have decided to redo my book, "Bead, Play & Love" and offer it for sale once again. I am going through it with a fine toothed comb to make sure I fix all of the unintentional typos that for some strange reason appeared when I did one final spell check before publishing it the first time. The publishing program made changes that I did not intend or ask for. I found them only recently (I don't read my own books very often) and was pretty horrified to realize that there are books out there with that are not as perfect as I would like them to be.

During the reworking of the book I consolidated and cleaned up some things which gave me 8 blank pages that need to be filled. As soon as these pages are filled I will send out a notice and hopefully find those who have notified me of their interest in the book. Stay tuned for more updates and a new release date for this little book of mine.

I hope everyone has a nice 4th of July holiday.

You're so right not to trust the spellchecker again. I've never known ANYONE whose own unadorned brain wasn't VASTLY superior to these dratted spellcheck programs! :-) I've made my living as a writer and editor for over twenty years, and I can spot a typo a mile away with one eye closed. I'd love to offer you my proofing services at no charge, to doublecheck everything with a second set of beading eyes. Your ingenious designs deserve to be presented perfectly!

Hey Beth you'll be getting this out again! Since I bought my couple a few months ago I've had many requests about where to buy it. For those of us that purchased the book prior to the new release, will thee be a list of things fixed and possibly any added information? Thank you!

Mandy, the revised book will have the typos fixed. I have also redone many pages and have made room for new work. When the new book is out I will send you images of the new work.
