A book illustrating Rockport, beautiful and quaint seaside village, containing breathtaking vistas along with anecdotes and history.

I am completely in love with this beautiful village of Rockport Massachusetts.  I feel blessed every day to live in such a gorgeous place.  Being here has inspired me creatively in a way no place else ever has.  I am a photographer, and have had a camera in my hand since I was a little girl.  I have been photographing Rockport for quite some time, and people have often said to me that I should put a book together.  I have so many beautiful images, and it is only right to be able to share them.  What better way than in a beautifully designed coffee table book? 

I battled back and forth on this for quite some time, and recently have decided to move forward with the project that has been started long ago.  I have spoken to local bookstores, who are excited to carry the book.  And I have started working on going through the thousands of local images I have to choose just the right ones.

In putting together a book, I had to come up with a way of organizing it.  I spent a long time thinking this over, and decided that there are so many things I love about Rockport it would be hard to put them in any sort of order.  Then it came to me to organize them by season, since there is something intrinsically and uniquely special about each individual season in this quaint little village.  And so it came to be.

I plan on designing the book to be approximately 100 pages.  It will include anecdotes, some details on where the photographs were taken and maybe some history along the way.  It is coming together fairly quickly.  The biggest stumbling block that I have is that in order to self-publish this book I need to come up with money for the printing.  I have a wonderful company to work with, who feature artists and photographers in their books.  But the funding is a big hurdle to overcome.  That is where you come in.  I need your help!  And in exchange for a donation you will be rewarded.  I have set a series of rewards based on the amount donated.  I have faith that you will help me with this thoroughly worthwhile project.  The bookstores have expressed a need for more books about Rockport, they know my work and love it.  They are already talking about sponsoring book releases.  So please help me on my way.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

In speaking with the book company, I know it will take between 3 and 4 months to get the book put together and delivered. So I need to move on this right away. I have finished the contents of the book. That means that I can get things finalized by January and, barring any unforeseen circumstances, go to print by the beginning of February at the absolute latest. The bookstores are trying to schedule a release for May 17th, dubbed Motif #1 Day, a day celebrating the town of Rockport. I plan on working as hard as possible to make that deadline.
