The Piercing Bible
July 4th, 2009
I gave a brief interview about starting over (after Hurricane Katrina) and it was posted here along with a number of other highly uplifting stories. Here's mine: Elayne Angel I had a successful business in the French Quarter of New Orleans for over 12 years. Unfortunately, it closed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. My husband and I spent a modest sum and moved into a home in the Yucatan of Mexico. In this new, quiet environment I applied myself to writing a book “The Piercing Bible” on my area of expertise. The book has been published (by Ten Speed/Random House) and now my job is promoting it online and via book signings around the US. I networked with everyone I knew to let them know that I was writing a book and I got lucky: I have a friend whose brother works in publishing. He heard about my project and took an interest in it. He was instrumental in getting my proposal and sample chapters to a few major publishers. Without his assistance, I'm not sure how long it might have taken to get published. http://piercingbible.com To give credit where credit is due, my friend mentioned above is Caitlin McDiarmid, the Administrator for the Association of Professional Piercers. And the instrumental help was given to me by her brother, Mark. Here's to the McDiarmids for all of their amazing support!

Book Review: The Piercing Bible | Tribalectic. by John Lopez I've been most nervous about the reviews of The Piercing Bible that are done by piercers. We tend to be opinionated individuals, and we don't always see eye to eye. So when I saw that piercer John Lopez had reviewed my book, I was a little nervous to see what he had to say. Turns out that he has plenty of positive perspectives on The Piercing Bible!

Quite simply the best £15 I've spent on anything piercing related
