Surfing the ads on Craigs List does work. They have two categories for writers and I found an ad that caught my eye. I am now under contract with the Turner Publishing Co. of Nashville to compose the captions, chapter introductions, preface, and dust jacket for their Historic Photos of Puget Sound due out in November. Among other things Turner produces coffee-table books with archival images. Walt Crowley completed one for them covering Seattle in 2007 and Nick Peters did one for Tacoma. I also agreed to attend three book signings or promotional events. And I get some free books.
The publisher’s representative said that he was impressed by my web site.
So by Christmas I should have three books on the shelves.
