Just the other night, I abruptly sat up in bed and said, "Steven, I have a book! And it's going to be in stores! And people that I don't know personally will buy it and read it!". He looked at me with a yes you do and are you just now realizing it look. I have spent the last few days packing up pre-orders and preparing for the official release. It's even more perfect that it's labor day weekend because there's no BBQ I'd rather be at and nowhere else I'd rather be than hard at work doing what I love. I'm so freaking happy that sometimes I think I might levitate.
There were times that I truly thought it may never happen and that this book that I worked so hard on might never be a real thing but it did happen and I have a book in my hands to prove it. It's really beautiful and I'm so excited for you all to see it!
While you wait for yours, I'll tell you...it's bright and colorful and the smiling faces inside are joyous and funny. The design is crazy lovely and the words on the pages are straight from my heart for yours. It's approachable and instructive and it will change the way that you take pictures. The cherry on the sundae is that my friend, Brené Brown, wrote an amazing introduction that I know you will love.
I've got other goodies coming too! This week there will be cool t-shirts added to my shop, new book related artwork, camera bag goodies and gorgeous custom made leather camera straps. In the next few weeks I will be adding videos to the online video library as well as free downloadable book content. I can't wait for you guys to see it all.
Tonight, as I type, the book went from 50+ something in my category on Amazon.com to #10. It's still like #90,000 and something overall but it may as well be a bestseller in my mind. I'm just beaming...and grateful. Thank you.
You can order books directly from me! They come signed and with a piece of art and a camera bag cheat sheet. Get yours here.
PS- Since I wrote this post last night, it's now #8 in my category, there's one left and it's #58,311 overall. Squeal!
