Thank you for your interest in my book.

The first edition of I'd Rather Be in the Studio: The Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion was in 2008. In 2019 I published the 4th and final edition.

While it is now out of print, you can still get a copy from your favorite e-retailer. 

Includes real-life stories from artists who are marketing their art in courageous and creative ways.
