Today's triple feature is a combination of traditional knots,
a new take on an old knot and a bracelet that that may (one
day) save a person's life.

More specifically, I 'm talking about the Celtic Triangle Knot
is a scared, rarely, if ever, taught knot...

...the Ladder Strap, a bracelet that when "sized up" is
fundamentally the same technique used to create a
rescue ladder, and...

...the Celtic Dagger Knot, a Decorative Fusion Knot
(check out Amazon.com for pre-order details), that
emulates the scared dagger used during Druid, Celtic,
and modern Earth Magic ceremonies.

When time provides discover the revealing truths behind
these self created, historically sacred, and critical survival
knots.

Hi JD!

So many wonderful knots - so little time to play!  My fingers are itching to have a go at them!!

I think with the Celtic Dagger knot I would prefer to finish it a bit shorter and make it into a Celtic Cross ~ that the great thing about your fusion knots, it encourages me to try different things I probably would not have done before!

I must check out Amazon UK and see if I can pre-order your book there are you selling it anywhere else?

Thank you once again for your fantastic videos - you really are an inspiration!!

Kindest regards!

Happy knotting!

I must say JD, I think your original cover is much more interesting. I also think the original cover would sell books better. I know we aren't supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but if I saw both covers on books on the shelf, I would grab the original first. I think your publisher is a moron when it comes to sales and the reason he made it that color was to save money. I have a good friend that is a retired printer. I have spent many hours admiring his German presses as well as learning exactly how he printed books. His version has 4 to 5 colors depending how they print it as opposed to yours which has at least eight. It's a lot like silk screening T-shirts, more colors mean more screens which ups the price.

Do you have the email address of the publishing company?

Pester power may help!

I also prefer your front cover - it is far more eye catching!  It also shows that there are many different types of decorative knotting in your book.  Their front cover makes it look like the knots are fairly similar.  I actually think some of them look a little out of focus too! 

Do you have a video or instructions on how to do the cross (second down the left side on your cover) - that would make a good gift for a friend I know!

I think you are right to hold out and not put anything into print until you are completely happy with it - after all it is YOUR book!  Your "fans" will be willing to wait I'm sure!

TIAT Book (Status) Update!

I just got off the phone with the publisher (don't contact him). They're aware of
the issues and concerns regading their modification of the images I sent. And
they (tell me) they're going to address those concerns for the final book (when
released).

So for now...I wait and see what changes they present.
