My new book Fast Faces: Unleash Your Creativity with a Friendly Lump of Clay is now available on amazon.com.
In fact, I woke the first morning it was released and saw that Fast Faces was already the hot new release in the Sculpting Technique category. Wow – I had not expected that, but it’s pretty cool.
Since the book came out it has often been the #1 seller in the Sculpting category on amazon.
You can find both the softcover and Kindle versions here.
The ‘look inside the book’ feature on amazon will let you take a peek at the first few pages.
If you missed my previous post where I told you more about the book, you can find it here.
As always, your reviews on Amazon.com will help out a lot – independent authors like me depend on reviews to help expand our audience, so don’t be shy. 🙂
Here’s what some of my readers have said about the Fast Faces book:
This book is an excellent way to get your creative juices flowing. I love the style jonni uses, doesn’t feel like she’s talking down to you at all. Encourages you to use your imagination and to trust your eyes. Less specific techniques and more a philosophical approach. I.e. knead the clay, fold the clay, play with the clay, etc, until you see a feature or two you like and work around that. Most important takeaway, have fun when you create.Tillinghast7
Well, this little book is quite an inspiring tale of creativity by an extremely generous author! You may think it is just about a blob of clay, but think again! this book has me creating with a smile, no frustration and looking forward to sharing with my grandkids, mother, and anybody else who comes by! In addition I have realized I have skills in woodworking as I built the sculpting easel, not just one but 3! All different sizes to fit the kids and myself and they turned out rather nice. My first fast face was soooo much fun and has helped me put expressions on other projects! Loveklhnurse
Fast Faces is one of the great art books out there. I have hundreds of them, but this one approaches art with great entertainment, fun sculptures, education, and displays psychological insights about art throughout. Even though the book is about unleashing your own creativity — and Jonni Good teaches you how to do that — it also addresses the psychological part of you to let you see differently, experiment differently, and learn differently. I look at all my art projects differently. I have more fun, I listen to what I see, and I see differently.

I checked your book on Amazon, of course, I saw a “used copy” for $23.19. I found that puzzling and amusing because the book came out yesterday (and cheaper new). I need to get online and buy some clay. Thanks so much.
HI Rex. I saw that expensive version, too. I think they buy the book from amazon, then add shipping and profit. A weird business, but maybe they make money. It’s probably all automated, too.
I made a few changes to the book after you so graciously helped me find my worst boo-boos. There’s always just one more little thing you can do to make it better, but a deadline helps bring that to an end so people can actually get a chance to read it! Thank you so much for your help.
Congratulations! I had already purchased the print copy before this post came out as I remembered you mentioning it would be out on Tuesday. I can’t wait to read/try it and I will be sure to write a glowing review. I really should read it first though. I hope this is a smashing success for you!
Thank you, Eileen! And yes, please do read the book first. A review that’s written just to be nice to the author won’t give other readers any help, and they can actually stop potential from even looking inside the book. But I can’t wait to see what you think after you’ve had a chance to look it over, especially about the idea of having a ‘Fast Face’ party or workshop. I’m too introverted to do that myself, but I think it would be a lot of fun if the instructor understands the concept well enough so the students catch on right away. But you would know a whole lot more about that than I do, so I can’t wait to see what you think.
Hi Jonni, I bought and read the book and it is a fun book to read. I love the part of people like me complaining about not having talent; that it is what we make of our own art as we see it , that is important; not what other people think. It is freeing in a way and I have been sating that for years. But, I have had to read that to really believe it. Thank you, I hope this book is a great success.
is there an email list I can sign up for? I’d like to receive blog posts
Hi Candy. I took down my email signup form because so many people were signing up, and it started to get too expensive for me. However, you can subscribe to my YouTube Channel (click the little bell thingy so they’ll send you a notice when I upload a video). I also hope to start a Patreon account just so people who want notifications will be able to get them whenever a new post comes out. Thanks for asking!
Candy, I learned I just have to “cowboy up!” and check the site. I don’t mean to be cheeky at all, but I learned you can’t rely on lists. I have empathy with you!
