My First eBook!

I have just published my first eBook on Ravelry. Ebook photograph

My “Celtic Knot Coasters ebook” Never sure whether I should capitalise the ‘B’ in eBook or not.

It pulls together all my present Celtic Coaster patterns

plus my more recent Triquetra Knot Coaster as a bonus pattern.

And I have even made three sales.

I put a lot of work into the ebook though it is pdf format not epub as that is the only format Ravelry allows. Mind you, when I experimented with saving the patterns as an epub file I found that it does funny things to the pictures so pdf is more satisfactory.

I included print friendly (i.e. no photographs) versions at the end of the book but did a bit of editing of the patterns, mainly language, before it was concluded so I hope I changed everything in step.

Next week I will have details of another pattern to share with you. A variation on a theme sort of pattern.

  1. How wonderful for you. I am so glad you were able to do this and hope sales pick up. I know alot of folks look at this type of crochet and shake their heads as too hard… .. now with your book, it might be easier for tehm.

    1. I am not expecting to sell great numbers as most people just seem to want the original Celtic coaster but it was fun to sell some straightaway. I expect it was because the Triqutra coaster appeared on Ravelry’s recent list.

  2. I don’t normally purchase books anymore as there are so many free patterns to choose from. But I wish to be an encouragement to a fellow craftsman who has more guts than me… to put it all together in a book!

    1. I know what you mean about free patterns. I look for them first though I have paid for some special ones. I try to make my patterns moderately priced and I do feel people are paying for the effort of making a pdf. I also have free ones that are just in posts and less checked.
