Bookers Dozen 2013 -- featuring ME!

Sorry so long no post.  Bad blogger girl.  Bad, bad. 

Anyway, here's the scoop: last year I took a Book Arts class where we learned how to make different kinds of books (not just writing: more the art and crafting of binding, making, etc.).  For our final project we had to make 18 copies of a book, so I made some flower fold books that contained a synopsis of part of the theme of my novel.  As part of the final, these books were entered into a competition to be part of the Booker's Dozen 2013, a display of the best handmade books from Idaho.  Well, I found out a couple of months ago that my book made it into the exhibition!  Isn't that exciting?  Today I found out the schedule of venues, so I'm posting about it here so any of you in the areas can come and see the books, including mine, if you happen to be in the area.  Squee!
