Sale on books from Amazon!

by Alison Rasmussen


My newest book, Steffie: Out of the Box Volume II, is currently on sale at Amazon for $14.35. It's Prime eligible as well, so you can get free shipping.

Additionally, Steffie: Out of the Box Volume I is also on sale for $16.37. Plus, you can find Alice: Out of the Box on sale for just $12.09, and BJDs for Beginners is on sale for $31.50.

Amazon lists its own prices for my books, and I'm never sure how long a sale will last.


Editing, editing, and editing some more.

Front cover
The editing process is creeping along. I used to love editing, but editing my own work isn't as fun as editing other people's writing.

Steffie: Out of the Box Volume II, the second proof, has been uploaded this afternoon, and its files are in review. Within 24 hours, I should be able to order a second hard copy.

While CreateSpace has an online editor, I will need a hard copy to review my photo editing as well. I so wish they (or any other publisher!) offered an affordable glossy page option. As soon as I have the proof in my hands, I should be able to make additional changes (I hope I won't need a third proof!), and/or upload and approve the final version to CreateSpace.

I'm looking at within the next two weeks for an optimistic publication date. Woo hoo!

Steffie: Out of the Box, Complete Edition!

by Alison Rasmussen



I've also decided to release a complete edition of Steffie: Out of the Box at the same time as Volume II. If you don't already own a copy of Volume I, you can save about $5 by purchasing the complete edition. It's in an 8x10 size (instead of 8.5x8.5 size), and includes all the dolls from both issues and a complete list, table of contents, and full index as well.

This book is also in proofing review, and I'm expecting it to arrive on Wednesday as well.

Steffie: Out of the Box Volume II is in proofing!

by Alison Rasmussen



The cover of my new book, Steffie: Out of the Box Volume II, is now at the printer, and in the proofing stage. My first copy should arrive on Wednesday afternoon, when I will start the reviewing and proofing process. I'll be reviewing it for typos and color issues.

Hopefully I'll be able to submit it by the end of the week! I'm so excited!

Are you loving the cover? It's a one-of-a-kind Miss America by Cat Hammond of A Doll Affinity. I think she's just gorgeous.
