Well this sure is great news for all of us and for Jackie....I just received my North Light Book Club circular in the mail today, and Jackie's book, "Pastels", from the Collins Painting Workshop, is one of the featured alternates! Yea! I'm finally going to have this book. :D

About time they have something other that watercoloring books... Talk about a medium I have no business working in... sheesh!

Yay for Jackie! :clap:

That's great to see!
(Although I just bought mine directly from her)
Some how-to art books just pretend to teach- Jackie's really does teach.

thanks for the support folks. It is good to see that North Light have finally discovered my book! When I first wrote it, which was a while back, they would not carry it because they had lots of American authors with books on Pastel Painting, particularly one by Carole Katchen, I think, and so they said they would not take my book.

Well, since my book is now in its THIRD reprint,(most unusual for an art instruction book) it has stood the test of time, and therefore maybe this is why they have recognised that perhaps it has some worth!

That is good news!
I don't see how they can possibly have ever said they had too many books on pastels by any authors because they have hardly any pastel books!!! It's why I have not bothered joining.
