That's me! Last spring somebody wonderful at Farrar, Straus and Giroux contacted me to see if I would be interested in having one of my photographs (found via Etsy!) on the cover of a book coming out in January 2010. Today a package was delivered, Mom was over, it was perfect, we smiled and hugged when we saw the published book, two were sent along with a stack of book jackets. It is so exciting to see my work on a published book, but even more so because the book is written by Ariel Gore, I feel honored.
......
I'm going to read it this week, then go to the bookstore, find it and tell people I took that photograph, then purchase several as birthday gifts to give all year long to all of the women who are close to me.
......
Kadee suggested I do a giveaway here...a book and print, so yes, let's do that, too. Say something in the comments, be sure I can track you down...giveaway ends on Wednesday, January 27th at midnight pst.
