My First Book

Pair of Doe mule deer in the snow

OK, so it’s just a Kindle Book, but it’s a start 🙂 I’ve long wanted to publish a book but obvious barriers such as printing and marketing costs have always made the process prohibitive.  So the other day I was poking around and discovered the Kindle Ebook process and thought, heck… why not give it a try?  I didn’t want to do a very big work only to discover some insurmountable problem so I decided to start a series of short stories of interesting moments in my experience with taking photographs in the field. So I quick wrote up the story of how I captured one of my favorite images of these three deer during a blizzard called “The Blizzard and the Camera“.

I had a few problems getting started including the fact that my cover page failed to upload. I shouldn’t have published until I was all ready but I did have one issue that I wouldn’t have know until already published. The work was supposed to take up to 72 hours to review but perhaps since it is so short it was already live in just a couple hours! The major problem I am having is that I was trying to credit my photo buddy Kevin for taking my profile picture and I wound up making him a co-author… actually the photographer for the book instead of just the contributor of the profile picture 🙁

Well anyway, after it went live the software allowed me to go back in and delete the co-author status but apparently I’m going to have to wait for a data base update for the reference to be removed from the main page in Kindle. Oh well,  the work is still there and I’m the author!

I have quite a few more ideas for short stories to add to my series, called Photo Adventures so be sure to stay tuned! The work is listed for $2.99 which was the minimum but for you Kindle Unlimited subscribers I think it can be read for free.


As always, the best of these images and hundreds more are available for purchase on my website as wall art on glossy metal or acrylic sheets, stretched canvas and traditional matting and framing. Tons of cool household and gift items are also available with any image you like including coffee mugs, t-shirts, blankets and pillows, battery chargers, phone cases, stationary and much much more!
