In a year as difficult as 2020, it’s hard not to reminisce on how things were last year, before the pandemic. Last winter, at this same time, I was leading a very active life. In attention to my part-time jobs, I was giving in-person book talks, participating on mental health panels, and attending craft fairs every weekend (sometimes more than once!). I was in the best place I’d been in in terms of both my career and my mental health, and while I’m fully aware that I currently have it better than so many people, it’s still disappointing that all of that is gone indefinitely.
That’s why I was excited when I found out about Artists Sunday, a nationwide event for artists and craftspeople happening today! Artists Sunday is basically like Black Friday or Small Business Saturday but exclusively for art, giving artists a chance to showcase their work and shoppers a chance to give something special, unique, and hand-crafted this holiday season. Plus, by shopping with artists, you’re also supporting the local economy.
I’m thrilled to be participating in the first annual Artists Sunday. Here’s what you can expect from me:
You may know that I recently published my third book Choosing Life. The third and final book in the Changing Ways series, Choosing Life follows seventeen-year-old Grace Edwards, who’s one-year in recovery from an eating disorder, on her journey to navigate the ups-and-downs of recovery and overcome new obstacles to achieve her long-term goals.
Choosing Life is now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle version.
But wait! There’s more!
In an effort to spread the word about my books and assist with holiday shopping I’m running a huge book sale starting today, Artists Sunday, and ending on Sunday, December 6th. For the entire week, all of my books will be 15% off on Amazon in paperback format and 25% off on Kindle!
After a year full of lows, let’s finish 2020 on a high. Social distancing may keep us apart this holiday season but we can still stay connected through art.
