Let me tell you a bit more about Tam’s new book in case you haven’t heard about it yet!

Based on one of Tamara’s popular series of online classes, Ever After addresses the most frequently asked question she receives from her students: “How do I develop my own creative style?” In addition to the beautiful art lessons created especially for this book by Tamara and eight other noted mixed-media artists, each chapter offers creative exercises that invite readers to explore stories, their symbolism, and a specific aspect of style development as they work toward and ultimately achieve their artistic goals.

#### Includes lessons and tips from these renowned mixed-media artists:

#### Fairy Tales, Fables & Fiction Featured stories include:

I was so excited to be included in this book, you guys! I worked with the story of Blodeuwedd, which is one of my favourite Welsh faery tales, and walked us through reframing a story to give it a happier, more empowering ending.

The book is now out (yay!) and can be ordered in the following places: US: Amazon | Barns & Noble | Indie Bound

**US: Amazon | Barns & Noble | Indie Bound – UK: Amazon | – CA: Amazon | Indigo – AU: Booktopia**

If you want a signed copy you can order it off Tam’s site directly here: http://bit.ly/EABookTam
