a tiny little bit of wonderful news

On the running trail.  Photographed with Nikon D200, 35mm lens.

This week, after what seemed like a long time, I finally met with the publisher to whom I'd submitted the book proposal.

They would like to move forward with the book.

This was exactly the kind of push I needed out of the waiting game.  Needless to say, I'm thrilled.  Needless to say, I'm a bit intimidated.  Needless to say, I have a lot of work to do.

While it's too soon to tell you everything, I will tell you that it will be a very visual book, but will certainly not be solely photography -- in fact, it will likely be equally heavy in words and images.  All new words and images.  So yes, like I might have mentioned: I have a lot of work to do.

So this is my tiny little bit of wonderful news.  And there was no way I could keep this to myself, since each of you -- those of you who have commented over the years, or who have otherwise sent me e-mails and notes of encouragement -- are absolutely the reason I had the guts to even dream about becoming a writer and a photographer.  So, thank you so much.  I owe you guys big.
