Changing States book release!
Hello! Remember me? That girl who went to all the states! I am working hard on your art rewards, and today marks the launch of Changing States - selected photos and observations from my time on the road - and you can check it out here (if you pop the preview in full-screen mode, you can even read a bit of it).
Now, here's the tricky part - blurb.com is having a contest with a travel category, and if I win I will get $3,000 (which I could really use, because it turns out getting to all 50 states is pretty expensive. Who knew?). If you can spare me a moment of your time, please click that link and vote for Changing States so I can qualify for the final round. If you'd like to encourage everyone you know to also vote for my book, that would be excellent.
Incidentally, if you are one of the fabulous people who pre-ordered this book, feel free to admire the preview but obviously don't purchase it - I am filling those orders myself, even as you read this. If you are not one of those people and you want to buy a copy, I won't stand in your way, but really just voting for the book would mean a lot. For extra credit, make a comment, blog it, or otherwise get the message to the people.
