I know. No one likes a price increase. Especially right now. But sometimes, it's necessary. For every book I sell, I have to pay fees. Usually this is at least 3.5%, plus a flat fee. Part of this goes to the host site where I'm selling (WordPress, Gumroad, Etsy, Amazon), and part of it goes… Continue reading Price Change
That's right! Thanks to everyone's support (and a little help from my tax refund) there is now an online shop right here on KnotMagickKnitter.com where you can buy my books directly! Kindle versions of all my books are now available to purchase directly if you click on the Shop tab above. If you would like… Continue reading The KnotMagick Studios Web Shop is Now Open!
I hop you are all staying well. So far, despite essentially being at Ground Zero, we are okay. Ash and I have been isolating as much as possible, but we are still both expected to go into work for the time being. I spent the weekend sewing and knitting, and you'll see some of what… Continue reading Check in, with Cats
Hey guys! I just wanted to let you know I'm going to be making a slight change in the schedule around here. You may have noticed that posts are still a bit erratic following my move. About 12 hours of my day is now eaten up by working and commuting, which doesn't leave a lot… Continue reading A Minor Change
Thank you to everyone who took the time to read my last post about Patreon. I did decide to go ahead and update my patron system. There are now only 2 support levels: $1 and $3/month, and I've simplified the rewards as well. For more information, check out my Patreon page. I've got the first… Continue reading Patreon Update
I'm back! We have internet again and things are slightly less crazy. I love living in Kent/Seattle. Everyone has been so wonderful here, and I really love the location. Both physically and mentally, I feel healthier than I have in a really long time. I'm still getting back into the swing of blogging. After more… Continue reading Return
The past few months have been difficult. I'm currently working with 2 different doctors to try to solve my personal energy crisis. Some days, I can do all the things. Some days, I sleep for 13 hours and spend my waking time wishing for a nap. Needless to say, this has had a drastic impact… Continue reading Thinking Ahead
A couple of months ago I hinted at some changes that will be coming to my production schedule and the website starting in January. I'm just going to make a quick list to preview some of the things you can look forward to next year. I'll be releasing 2 books in 2019. Early details will… Continue reading Changes in 2019
Many of you know that the name I write under--Sophia Beaumont--is not my real name. Writers use pen names for a variety of reasons. Sophia is a name I've used online for years, as it means "wisdom." As a consummate Ravenclaw, wisdom is something I've always desired to have, but often felt myself lacking. Also,… Continue reading What’s in a name?
I am still playing catch up thanks to the day job. I need a couple of weeks to get my footing back, so I'm going to take my annual blog break early this year. KnotMagick will be on hiatus until August 27, when I'll be back with some major news and announcements (want the news… Continue reading Catchup
