OK, just so you don’t think that I am lazy and ignore the book issue. Here is a little update. I am working on it and it will not simply be just a reprint of the pages you see on this thread. So it is more work for me, but since it is work of love I I am not a professional writer/ photographer/publisher etc.) so I would like to be it something I am not ashamed of. I already send out some pages to on-line printers to see how it comes out on printed page. Some are OK, some are lousy and although cheaper, I would not use them - as I said - after all the effort, some WOW has to be involved here. I did not realize how much hassle is involved. One company prints only horizontal and hardcover. Another only vertical and softcover. At this point, I tend to lean towards soft cover (Cheaper mailing, and vertical works well with the material I am using). The hard cover sample I made pleased my ws so much, that they ordered them for gifts, mostly for their kids, since it has only 20 pages and it gives just a glimpse of what is underwater here. Of course, ordering photo books in such small numbers from on-line company is expensive and would not be practical for the many-page book I have in mind. So I am still searching. If you are interested in the “Beneath the Whidbey Waters” I made for my wife’s coworkers, flier is on my Smugmug since I don’t want to use this site to promote it. Please I welcome any feedback on the issue. Thank you.
Since I live "afar" in Thailand now, I love being able to follow the goings-on of Puget Sound with your pictures (and others) here and on NorthwestDiver.com. I often check your thread on both websites, even knowing almost all of your work is double posted. That way, I get to see it twice!
When you finish the "real" book, can you airmail one to Thailand for me?
If it will fit in an 8 1/2 x 11 envelope and is under four pounds, it's only $11 shipping...which I'd gladly pay to get your book.
Regardless, happy diving, and thanks of sharing your work.
