Alyssa Middleton and I recently put on our work boots and stomped through the trenches to revamp our first e-Book, Essential Soap Making. We added personality, reformatted several chapters, and sent our book to an amazing editor, Karen Bowlding. The front and back covers were beautifully and expertly designed by Jennifer Smith. We are so proud of the product, which is now in the proof stage, and will be available within a week in paper back. I can not wait to get the book in my hands!
This morning, as I worked on our second book, Advanced Soap Making: Removing the Mystery, which is forming up nicely, I came to realize that I am genuinely excited to share my know-how of making great soap, especially the tricks to making goat milk soap.
Soap making, to me, is a mixture of art, creativity, and personal gratification – most soap makers are doing exactly what they love to do.
I encourage you to do that as well, express yourself, take care of yourself, do what makes you feel joy. You were given those talents and passions, run with them!
