# I’m very excited
I’m very excited. My new book, **Drawing Your Life**, is due to be published by [Perigee/Penguin] on 5th March.
As well as encouraging readers to pick up a pen or pencil and draw, the book is also about taking manageable, regular steps to get where we want to go, enjoying the small things in life along the way.
I made the book one page at a time and I hope everyone who reads and draws in it will enjoy it in the same way.
### Counting down!
I’m counting down the days to publication (literally!). This is the first time I’ve had a book published by a publisher—until now I’ve published my own work, and so this is a very new experience and a VERY exciting one. I really want the launch to go well and I hope you’ll join me in celebrating when the book is out.
I’m planning to declare March **A Month of Celebrating** when I hope we can all take time to share and celebrate our creative triumphs (you probably know that I’m a bit fan of [celebrating our creative steps]).
I hope you’ll join me then, but before that I’d really appreciate some help in making the launch of the book go as well as possible.
### Ways you can help
2. Spread the word by telling your friends about the book the next time you meet up for a cuppa or chat on the phone.
3. Talk about the book on your blog, Twitter, Facebook, etc (I’m very happy to answer questions about the book [via email] or to schedule some interviews).
4. Join me in being excited! You can watch the days to publication count down in the sidebar here on **Sustainably Creative** and I’ll also be posting regular countdowns to [Facebook] and [Twitter].
