My Go Creative! books are out of commission at the moment (except for the F-R-E-E-Writing Notebook, still available on Amazon, which doesn’t count as a book). I’m in talks with a trade publisher to see if a print-only deal, in different territories, might be possible.
I have mixed feelings and we’ll see.
In the meantime, I thought I’d give you a reading list of great books about creative living that might inspire and delight you.
And back soon with all the news from Sligo: if you were there, send me your photos. I’m putting together an album.
