Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts Book Winner Announced

The winner from the IHAN blog is:

(Please e-mail me your full name and address....IHaveANotion@yahoo.com)
Barb you also get the 50 pre cut circles so you can immediately start making hexies when your package arrives :)

Congratulations Barb and a huge thank you to Julia Woods and Peggy Rhodes for allowing me to participate in this blog hop.  If you are wondering why I cut such a variety of fabrics to send along with the book....I would if I were you...LOL.....I make all of mine out of scraps and love the variety of colors and themes on the fabrics.
 

If you are not the winner, you can purchase an autographed copy of Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts HERE.

Some insider information :
Now that I've been in the Quilting and Sewing Notions business for a few years I have had the opportunity to learn quite a bit about how the inside of the Quilting and Sewing Notions business works.  Did you know that most authors get a royalty for each book sold?  Probably everyone knows that....but did you know it is frequently less than a dollar  and I know of people who make less than 50 cents per book sold.  After devoting numerous hours to writing and revising a book the author makes less than the publisher and the reseller of the book in many cases.  Love an author?  Buy the book directly from them so they make the profit and can continue to write and create.  Just my 2 cents :)

Oh and don't forget, Julie is giving away a Go Baby on her blog and you have 4 chances to win.  Click HERE to find out how.

Smiles,
Kelly

Great advice when buying books - all that hard work, the author should be getting a bigger piece of the pie.
