I am so excited to share that my latest book has been completed, printed and delivered to my house!
This is an expanded version of my 2016 first issue. The title is the same: "Nature-ly Fun: Bird Photography From A to Z" but this new one has a hardcover. This is something I really wanted because the hardcover looks so much better than the soft one, and the physical condition quality of the book is much better and longer lasting.
The book's central themes remain the same: that birding and nature photography is fun, interesting, wholesome and healthy. This is truly a hobby that can be picked up at any stage of life and can last a lifetime.
I used the alphabet's 26 letters to extoll an array of attributes of a hobby I enjoy so much. "A" is for Adventure, "B" is for Beauty- you get the idea. A short essay supports each descriptive letter accompanied by several of my photographs that further illustrate each letter.
The book also includes what I call "Best of the Rest." These are other types of photographs I enjoy taking, such as sunrises and sunsets, lighthouses, cemeteries, churches, reflections and shadows, as well as animals other than birds.
I love this owl photo so much that I took a few years ago in the Hollings National Wildlife Refuge south of Charleston that I kept it on the cover.
This second edition is 100 pages versus the first version's 85.
I even added a few types of birds not included in the earlier book, bringing the bird variety number to 90 from 85.
I have just added this book to my three previous ones on my Amazon authors site. Click here to see it.
The book can be purchased through Amazon or from me directly, which I will happily sign. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will add Charleston area store locations where the book is sold as they become available.
Many thanks to Whitlock Business Systems and its 360 Digital Books division for another fine collaboration. This is the third book I've done with this company located near Detroit and I'm pleased again with the quality, service and pricing.
Please contact me if you have questions or comments about this book or my previous ones. Thank you!
