I thought I would share some pictures of some of the projects I created for my new book, The Star Trek Craft Book. I had a great time stretching my imagination and creative muscles to come up with projects that would tie in with different Star Trek episodes.
The step-by-step instructions for making each of these projects are included in the book.
One very cool thing is that the publisher will be displaying the book at San Diego ComicCon, and they will be doing giveaways of some of the finished craft projects, including the cute little crochet figures and Spock Monkey featured on the cover. Now if I can just get them to sponsor an author signing at the show, I'll be set! :)
I will be setting up a page here on AngieWrites where I will be selling autographed copies so you, too, may Craft Long and Prosper.

More than simply a place to park your resume online, LinkedIn allows savvy professionals from all industries to connect with colleagues, co-workers, and friends around the world. According to its About page, LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network on the Internet, with more than 150 million members in over 200 countries and territories. [via ]
Like many social networking sites, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of information available on LinkedIn, leaving you unsure where to start. Fortunately,
LinkedIn offers a New User Starter Guide. This Guide walks you through the initial steps of setting up your profile and connecting with people you already know.
Pro Tip: Work towards “100% Completion” of your profile – this makes you easier to find and more available to opportunities.
Your Global Chamber of Commerce
Once you complete your profile, you can start taking advantage of LinkedIn’s collective wisdom. Think of LinkedIn as a local chamber of commerce meeting, but on a global scale. Hundreds of other professionals and business owners gather there daily, all with the purpose of making connections and helping each other out. Just like at a local networking event, you can use LinkedIn to ask your network for business partner or professional service recommendations, such as technical support or tax advice. Knowing that you have a pool of resources available on LinkedIn can help relieve the feeling that you’re alone and have to know and do everything yourself.
