Another Treasury...

So the book was featured in another treasury! It is no longer active, but still wanted to share it with everyone.

Also, this week is my Spring Break (starting tomorrow afternoon!) Book is going to the press on Wednesday for 1st run copies! So exciting. 

There are 5 pre-sale copies left, so snatch yours now. If you are ordering 3 or more extra (if you are carrying them in stores, family, passing out, etc. contact me for the base rate of the book!). 
Please continue to promote this project! It is so AMAZING!

P.S. I just put in my proposal for the AEAI Indiana Art Education Conference to present this in November! I should also be hearing if I got my grant for 110 books for all of third grade TOMORROW! Wish me luck!

Over 1000 Views in Less Than a Week!

Congrats and thanks to everyone who has been supportive so far on this project!

The listing for the pre-sale has received over 1000 views, and as I had stated in a thread, I am donating 10 extra books to students since the views hit 1000!

Everyone has worked so hard on this book and bumping threads. Many of you have blogged about it, shared the link with friends, and continue to spread the word (special shout out to Juniper44, who continues to work hard bumping threads). I have sold several copies to artists who are not apart of this book, but wish to learn about ACEO and support the project. One is even going to Ireland!

I will hear back about my grant to provide all of 3rd grade at both of my schools (110 copies= about $2,500) at the end of the month. Please wish me luck. This grant is a big step!

If you get some time, please try and help bump these threads or put the book in a treasury, if you feel that is appropriate.
