Recently a couple of the comments to my blog posts have included questions. Before I forget (I am getting to be of an “age”), I thought it might be helpful if I answered here in case any of the rest of you have the same questions.
A few days ago FiberHappy inquired about an error in my sock book. I couldn’t figure out how to respond to her comment directly so I hope she is reading this. If you’re having trouble with a pattern in one of my books and can’t find a correction on the books page of the Interweave website (click on Corrections), please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unless I’m out of town, I check email multiple times a day and will get back to you right away. Although several people read through all the instructions and at least three people check all of the math, errors do find their way in printed books. In fact, we used to joke that the way to find a mistake in a book was to print 10,000 copies, then open one up. Sigh.
A couple of weeks ago Minh asked about getting signed copies of my books directly from me. Thank you for your confidence in me, Minh. After much deliberation for about 10 minutes, I decided that I didn’t want to have to deal with the obligatory tax issues of doing business independantly. But, I have a brilliant alternative. If you purchase one of my books directly through Interweave and tell them that you want it autographed, I will sign it for you (I go to Interweave about once a week). If you want to give me additional support, order the books through the books link on my webiste and I’ll get an additional 10% of the sale. Whoo-hoo, we both win! Send me an email as well to let me know how you’d like the book inscribed.
