I am so inspired by your site and story, you seriously are everything I aspire to be! I am currently a newish (for a year) art blogger, art teacher, etsy shop owner, and anything on the side to help me make money from doing what I love. My dream is to publish a book about my visual journal posts and how tos on my blog, and it is something I feel I have been seriously persuing for coming up on a year with no result. How did you find yourself becoming an author? Where you approached by publishers or did you seek them out with query after query? Thanks for sharing your story!
