6-6-17—I’m thinking about closing the tab for this page because there isn’t going to be a book. Instead, I’m releasing all the book information on my blog called Adventures in Pin Loom Weaving. You can click on the highlighted link or on the top right icon to get to it.
10 July 2016–I am engaged in compiling information for a book on pin loom weaving. I give it a lot of thought and not as much action as I should. Trying to decide whether or not to self publish or approach a publisher. Self-publishing would be a bit more work, I imagine, but it also might be faster. Just can’t decide.
11 April 2016–Since this page gets visited more frequently than I ever expected it to, I’ve decided to revise it again. All the stuff below this paragraph is history. Since my blog has become about 99% devoted to pin loom weaving, I’m thinking maybe I should write a pin loom book. I only know of two other books (in print) on the subject and who can’t use another one? My participation in the first week of the Weekly Weave-Along has given me some unique experiences and insight into what questions and problems people encounter as they start pin loom weaving. My prior objections to writing a book are the vast amounts of time it would take and the fact that I’m a more process-oriented person than product, meaning I ain’t got hardly no projects to my credit. Those are still objections, but I’m seeing a missing piece in the published world of PLW and I think I might be able to fill it. So, give me some time to talk myself out of it and back into it and out and in again . . . Got to find an interested publisher before I knock myself too far out. I was actually thinking of calling the book Weave-Along With Sue even though I think that’s a presumptuous and dorky title. If you’re reading this page, let me know what you think.
Sue’s first middle grade fiction book is currently in the revision stage: Single white pages seeking sense together with others. (Also seeking eventual publication.)
OK, not all the pages are white . . .
8 Feb 2016 Update. When I first started my blog I was anxiously engaged in writing a children’s fiction novel. I finished it, but being my first book, I thought it was wonderful but no one else did. I’ve started several other stories since then, but I’m not actively pursuing any kind of writing at this time.
Until recently I had no plans to attempt a non-fiction book on the subject of pin loom weaving. These days I think about it, but knowing the tremendous amount of work it would require, I’m daunted, to say the least.
I apologize for giving anyone the impression that I have a pin loom weaving book in the works. However, should a madness take me, I would probably require more than a year to prepare a manuscript (including photos, writing and testing instructions, inventing projects, and testing out multiple procedures [such as joining techniques]). Should a publisher take an interest in my work I am informed that it can take 3-5 years for a book to get onto the shelves.
