Book Launch and Exhibition Opening in Ballarat

Join me this weekend in Ballarat for the Launch of my new Book and Exhibition.

As many readers will know recently I published a book called Pit Firing Ceramics: Modern Methods, Ancient Traditions. The book was in February catalogues for Australian book shops, libraries, etc, and is now beginning to hit book shelves. it is also available online – it came out in the USA in November last year.
The book is being launched this weekend at the Annexe, Ballarat Art Gallery 5th July 2-4pm, so if you are in or near the Ballarat drop by and share a glass of wine and cheese with me.
Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing, or if you already have a copy bring it along to be signed.
The launch is also accompanied by an international exhibition featuring some of the artists that contributed to the book. The exhibition is in the new Exquisite Objects space in the foyer of Backspace Gallery and runs throughout July.
Below is a flyer with all the launch information or join the event on Facebook!!
I hope to see you there 🙂

People Are Actually Buying My Book!!

So, a little while ago I posted that my newly published book about Pit Firing Ceramics was available for pre-order from Amazon, and the Book Depository, and Barnes and Noble, and Fishpond (in Australia).

BUT, I wasn’t really expecting anyone to buy it so soon!!

Tonight I visited Amazon and it would appear some purchases have been made! I have no statistics, but anyone Amazon savy will be familiar with the information below the book listing links to other books purchased, which says

Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought

AND my book has this! Which means people have bought it! Doesnt it?? woohoo!!

My Book is Now Available for Pre Ordering

Book Cover

I have just found out my long awaited book Pit Firing Ceramics: Modern Methods, Ancient Traditions is available for pre order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble & the Book Depository.

It is due to be released in America on 28th November 2013 with other countries to follow.

But if you can’t wait, of course, order it online!


Barnes and Noble

The Book Depository

Am pretty excited – I have only seen a virtual copy of it for layout editing and the like, so it will be great to hold a hard copy in real life after such a long period of writing and proof reading.

I first submitted my proposal to Schiffer Publishing when I finished my PhD in 2009 – so it has been four years in the making.

I will keep you posted on hard copy release dates as they come to hand 🙂
