About this project

We are printing the 3rd book in the series "Shellcrafting in the 21st Century". This edition will be titled "Flowers" We have been in the shell business asThe Shell Store in St Pete Beach for over 35 years.. This is a opportunity to be the first one to receive the finished copy and you even have a chance to be included in the acknowledgment section of the book if desired. The book will show many types of shell flowers from start to finish in the almost 40 pages of pictures and directions on how to make many of the realistic flowers shown.

This will be our 5th book we have authored or co-authored.. Having printed the other books has given us insight into what it takes to create, publish and promote the craft books. Other book titles in the series are "Shellcrafting in the 21st Century" (on critters)and "Mirrors-Shellcrafting in the 21st Century".

Risks and challenges

One of the biggest challenges we have faced has been promoting the new books. This is the first place we are using to promote the creation of this book and try and get it into the hands of individuals in the crafting field. This way they will use the book and possibly tell a friend, with word of mouth being a very strong way to promote the book.

Layout took many years to find all the pictures of the flowers that we wanted to include in the book. We have made many of the flowers and have also had other professional and amateur crafters that were willing to share their projects with us to add to the book.
