Thanks to many of you, we are SOLD OUT of our “Wild in Arizona: Photographing Arizona’s Wildflowers” books. We continue to have requests for copies (that we don’t have) and many of you sent in great suggestions for new locations and new flowers.
Sooo, we need more books!
After considerable thought, Paul Gill and I (Colleen Miniuk-Sperry) are working hard to come out with the Enhanced 2nd Edition of our award-winning guidebook, “Wild in Arizona: Photographing Arizona’s Wildflowers, A Guide to When, Where, & How” (scheduled to be published in March 2015).
We’ve listened to your suggestions, and as such, the enhanced 2nd edition features:
- 13 new spectacular locations
- 12 new featured flowers
- 10 new “Making the Photo” stories
- Over 80 new photographs
- An updated Bloom Calendar
In other words, we’ve made an award-winning guidebook even better! (To view more information about the original book, visit our website at www.wildinarizona.com.)
But we need your help! Publishing will be expensive!
To publish the Enhanced 2nd Edition will cost about $14,000, considering costs associated with printing, shipping, etc. (Most authors do not make money on books, and this is why they call us “Starving Artists!” LOL!)
Paul and I started an Indiegogo campaign, where we are seeking your assistance in raising $5,000 to help us cover less than half of these costs to publish the book. We are so passionate about helping others grow in their own photography and helping others get outside to enjoy all that Arizona has to offer.
As a thank you to YOU, our valued supporters, we are offering discounts on:
- The new book and eBook!
- Private half-day workshops with me
- One-day workshop with Paul and me - only 5 available!
- 3-day Arizona workshop extravaganza with Paul and me – only 3 available!
And the chance to get your name in the book forever!
To jump in on these exciting, but limited-time, perks, visit our new Indiegogo campaign at www.indiegogo.com/projects/wild-in-az-photographing-az-s-wildflowers-book now through February 6, 2015. And then get your camera ready for Arizona’s upcoming spring wildflower bloom!
As always, thanks much for your support!
Paul and Colleen
