A little bit about myself, first of all, I am not very good at talking about myself…
I am a stay-at-home mom turned quilt book author. I am self published and create, write, draw, sew, market, and ship right out of my house. I worked as a graphic designer back in the days when I "worked for a living". I decided to start writing books when my children were very small as a way of bringing in extra income without being away from home.
I published my first book, Grandma's Bunnies, in 2002 and have sold more than 50,000 books to date of my combined titles. My second book printed in 2003, Claire's Cats, had been my most successful title. I printed 15,000 copies and it sold out last year. I now have the sequel, Claire's Cats Volume 2, and it was published in August of 2007.
If you like applique, my books are easy one-piece patterns and I include as many different fabrics, options, and colors as I can pack into a small book.
I welcome any comments or suggestions. You are welcome to visit my website: http://www.ashtonpub.com where I have free sample patterns posted in pdf form under the description of each book such as this one. I am currently toying with the idea of making a new bunny book since the old one has been out of print for over a year and I keep getting requests for it.
If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.
