The flowers that Carol and David had for me at my show.


The book I had on the table with the above flowers at my show.
Sorry the photos are not so good of the book but I did not have time to do repeats. It is shiny so the glare did not help me take the photos.
As you can see Prince's photo of the sunrise which I have on the sidebar of my blog, made the back cover. Also, he had three other photos in the book.
As for Kitty, I had six photos and one poem in the book. If you recall in a previous post, I mentioned that I had submitted photos and was notified that some would be used, however, we did not know which or how many photos would be used as I had sent in several.
Our payment was two copies each for the use of our material. Prince kept saying "wonder which ones they used." When Puppy went by and picked up our copies at the Westview, we could not wait to see which of our photos had been used.
Can you imagine how we felt when we saw our photos and my poem? We were both truly humbled by the number used.
If anyone would like to order a copy which is offered in soft and hardback, please go to www.publishedbywestview.com
Again, I was not told to say this nor will I get anything but the enjoyment that you would like a copy.
The kitty justice is to use part of Minnie's phrase "I am just so proud."(To have my work included in this book but most of all that Prince's photos were featured.)

Lady Di,

Congratulations to you and Prince. There's nothing like the feeling of seeing your work in print, whether it be a story, a poem of a photo. Great job, both of you.

Just recently I had a story accepted for publication. Though the payment was not what I'm used to, it's always nice being recognized.

Take care and stay warm.

Blessings,
Mary
