My ABC Book: Creation and progress update

So if you’ve met me in the past two years, you’ve heard me talking about this book that I’m writing about Napa. While writing this book, I’ve become a yoga teacher and changed my career, and now work for myself. This is a dream of mine that I wished for so hard, and I am grateful every day to now have the time to buckle down and finish this thing. I’m so excited about the illustrations and the whole idea, so this post is to share just what the hell I have going on over here in my studio!

The Old Bale Grist Mill in Calistoga is one of my favorite places in the world.

The book is called Napa’s Treasures, an ABC book, and it’s about parks, nature, and local treasures such as the Old Faithful Geyser of California in Calistoga, and the legend of the Rebobs up Partrick’s Road.

Rather than focusing on the businesses and wineries in Napa, my focus is on the natural beauty of the land, and cheap or free places to take children to appreciate this unique part of the world, for more than just a great place to cover in grapes for profit. I hope this book will inspire more people to explore the natural beauty of Napa and be inspired to help preserve it for future generations to enjoy.

I have 8 pages left and worked for 10 hours on this the other day! I’m ¬†aiming to be done by mid-November, wish me luck! Once I get a final copy made and in my hand, I will put up a pre-order listing in my Etsy store. To stay informed of my progress, subscribe to my blog below! Thanks so much, friends, for your support!
