As soon as I wrapped Book 1 aka "Baby Girl" aka tinkered treasures, I began working on projects for a follow-up. I didn't know any better than to wait and was still in full tinker mode so why not? I knew from the get-go that I wanted projects to have a seaside theme and began working out ideas through a series of Camp Tinker blog posts.
At first I began creating in what I referred to as a "palette of feisty citrus hues" but I missed my "signature" faded pastels and floral motifs.
Toward the final set of deadlines, I needed to tinker nearly non-stop and set-up a six foot table in my bedroom. (What a patient and supportive hubby!)
After the making came the writing. I asked stylist-author-hero Selina Lake, who I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon with in London last February, if she would provide the foreword and she did! She wrote the loveliest text and is preparing for the release of her fifth book Outdoor Living in addition to the re-releases of her other books in paperback and different languages. Visit Selina's blog for all the swoonable deets.
seaside tinkered treasures is now available for pre-order at "all good booksellers" and will be released this March. My publisher is currently seeking blogs to be part of an online book tour. If you are interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration to receive a review copy.

To say that I am thrilled with book 2 is an understatement. I hope you will enjoy it, too!
