Hope you are all enjoying a beautiful spring. I’m springing into a new direction for Teresa Funke & Company this year, and with that will come some exciting changes, including a newer, easier-to-read newsletter and some really fun changes to my website. Watch for those soon. I’m also rolling out some new products and will debut a new book in late summer! I couldn’t be more excited, and want to thank you, as always for your interest in my work. Your support means everything. And don’t worry, the art giveaways will continue. I love supporting local artists!Art Giveaway:
I don’t know about you, but out here we had a very mild winter. I’m not a big fan of snow, but it was odd so have so little of it this year. So here is a LOVELY little piece that looks a bit like a snowflake. It’s polymer and is by local artist Marcella Wells. I fell in love with several of her pieces.

To enter my drawing to win, simply click here: or send me an e-mail with the header “April 2017 Giveaway.” I’ll hold the drawing one week from today and contact the winner. Congratulations to Martha who won the last giveaway of a heart-shaped bowl!

If you know of anyone who might like this month’s item, feel free to forward this e-mail and invite them to enter! The more the merrier. These giveaways are my gift to the community. The rules are, I cannot know the artist and I must purchase the art to result in a sale.

Rockin’ New Blog Posts
Here are the last two month’s posts in my Bursts of Brilliance for a Creative Lifeblog. One post almost broke my record for views, “All That Matters is You Don’t Give Up.”  Here are some other favorites. Thank you for sharing the posts you enjoy and letting people know about the blog!

PEO Group Donates Books
I thoroughly enjoyed my talk to a Loveland chapter of thePhilanthropic Education Organization in March. This was my fourth time speaking to a PEO group, and it’s always such an honor to be asked. PEO’s mission is to advance women through scholarships and grants, a mission near and dear to my hear as a former scholarship winner myself. This PEO group’s generous purchases of my books are also making it possible for me to donate 10 free copies of The No-No Boys to any school that wants one. We still have a few copies left. If you’d like to receive one, please e-mail:  If your organization is looking for a speaker, please let me know. I’m always so happy to connect with local groups! 

Partnering with Your Business to Give Back

I’m wrapping up my Teresa Funke Author Visit Program on May 1st with my last school visit for this school year. We are so grateful to our partners,Community Auto, the Fort Collins Lions Club, Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, Pedersen Toyota, and Colorado Vision Center. With their help, we served over 700 kids and donated more than 200 books!

If you own a business or know of a business owner who would like to partner with us for next school year, please have them We offer 10 amazing touch points of marketing and promotion for our business partners that last throughout the school year! And because school budgets for author visits and field trips have not bounced back since the recession, we can’t do this without your help!

Be The First to Get It!
My new Self-Publishing Blueprint had a stellar debut on Tuesday, March 28. It is now selling briskly at a super low price that lasts through Monday. After that, it goes to it’s regular price, which is also a steal. Here’s a link to watch the webinar that gives you a sneak peek at this unique product and access to the early bird price, click here.

If you’ve ever wondered about self-publishing or if you are serious about the process but confused by all the false information floating around the internet, this is the perfect product for you. I walk you step by step through the self-publishing process, using videos and worksheets to cut through the confusion. And the product lives online, which means you can go through it at your own pace and access it anytime. Here’s what some of our early buyers have already said:

  • This is going to make my project completion even easier than I had imagined – can’t wait!
  • Wish I had this the first time I self-published!
  • Yes!! Some of the absolute terror I was feeling is fading.
  • I’m in too! This Blueprint really covers all the bases an author needs to know!
  • Giving us specific recommendations and letting us know who to stay away from is HUGE!!!! Really crazy helpful.
  • I have no doubt this product is worth 10x the cost. Having a system that works is invaluable.
  • Totally worth it!! Buying it was a no-brainer.

I believe nearly every author has a self-published book in their future, even if you also hope to traditionally self-publish. That’s why I wanted to share with you all my best tips from 15 years as a successful self-published author and coach!
