Re: book deal


Date: Wed Apr 24 2002 - 17:18:09 PDT

I just need to tell someone so why not this list. My teaching buddy, Bob
Capitolo, and I have been working on a book idea for the first year of high
school art. We sent out a copy of the first chapter to 8 publishers and
waited. 9 months later I get a call from Sterling Publishing in New York and
they want us to do a series of books, not just geared to educators but to the
general public. These would be the type of books that people would buy to
have a course at home or to help people draw, paint, print better. A guide
to drawing etc.

The first one will be on drawing, techniques and projects that will cover the
things we do in our class but without the educational stuff. This could be
used by teachers as it will be step by step procedures, examples and tricks
that we have used for the last 30+ years.

I was very shocked to be hearing him ask for a series! But Bob and I are
eager to try. He is sending me a contract and I will begin soon. This could
be a way to retire in 2 years and do some more of this.

Just thought I'd share.
