Sneak Peek: Soap Crafting Advance Reader Copy

Want a sneak peak at what I’ve been poring over for the last week? My nose has been constantly buried in the advance reader copy of Soap Crafting, my book that is set to publish this August. Even better news, the book is now available for presale right here! Remember, pre-sale purchases get two free Advanced Technique videos with projects from the book when the book is released.  We’ve got it set up to ship via Media Mail when it comes out so you can pre-order and be among the first to get it and the videos when the book is released. To pre-order your copy of Soap Crafting, click here and add the book to your shopping cart, then proceed with checkout.

Sneak Peek Advanced Reader Copy of Soap Crafting

This is the second round of edits with a paper advance copy, not to mention the constant emails with PDFs back and forth. It’s been a pleasure working with the people at Storey Publishing and their quest for everything in this book to be perfectly amazing. Here’s a look inside! (Eeeeek!)

    Hello, would you be so kind to advise if this book will be availailable in digital format? I would really love to pre-order the digital version (only because the shipping costs to my country is extremely high). Thank you.

      Hi Paule! We can’t wait for you to have it in your hands either. Unfortunately, it will not have the amounts in grams, but you can always use an easy conversion calculator to get the correct amount. =)

      Hi Pelin!

      We don’t currently have plans to have the book in an e-book format, but I will pass your message on to the Product Development Team to see if that is something we could do.

    Hi Loving this book. I am on your website ordering the book but it will not give me a shipping estimate to Ontario Canada. I want to pay for it via Paypal right away if I can.

    Any suggestions? I need help please. Need shipping cost so I can prepay. Can someone please get back to me and advise ?

    Many thanks
