Creativity at Work

It’s hard to be excited about the publication of my book Creativity at Work today when some people don’t have homes or electricity right now. But I just saw a photo of my publisher powerHouse Books.  Their combined book store and offices in Dumbo, Brooklyn sustained extensive flood damage.  Maybe the best way to help them them and others affected is to resume our daily activities and get back to business.
I also want to thank Preston from Keep it Chic for her interview with me.  I worry that she had to flee her home that was in the path of tidal flooding.  My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. 
Thank you as well to Patricia Sheridan who profiled me this week for my hometown newspaper, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Many of you also received an invitation to a private book party at Flair Home on Thursday, November 1st.  I haven’t been in contact with them yet but the lack of electricity and public transportation leads me to believe that the event will probably have to be rescheduled.  I will keep you posted. 
Thank you again to everyone who checked in with me and remember that you can help residents affected by  the hurricane by donating to the Red Cross.

    I just received your book today in the mail from Indigo-Chapters here in Toronto. It came out one day in advance with a Bang! I can’t wait to meet you on your Book signing trip here in Toronto and for you to sign my book. Just to let you know that your book was wrapped in tight plastic. Too pretty to break it open. But of course I will open and read it. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the residents in the Northern East Coast USA.

    Congratulations on your new book. You must be very proud. I can’t wait to get my copy. The situation in New York and New Jersey is devastating and hard not to think about right now.
    All the best,

    Hi Heather, I am so glad that you are located in the Upper East Side and not in lower Manhattan. And it looks like you kept power.

    Heather, my book arrived yesterday (I had pre-ordered it last spring from Amazon) and it is truly a gorgeous book. The orange cover is stunning and I love the gold embossed type. It is classically chic and beautiful. Congratulations! Now…when will you be coming to Seattle to sign my book???

    I am parceling out my reading time…as a reward for tasks done! It is a great read and I know I will enjoy it always.
