I have exciting news! Three little joyful updates that I can finally share with all of you.
1. The New Cover
Below is the cover for my first (and the next, tenth) edition of Moon Belize. I’m still stoked that my photo was selected. If you look very closely, that’s the reef in the background. Hold off on guessing the location, I’ll be running a little contest over on Facebook soon! – **Oops, out of sheer excitement, a Facebook friend accidentally disclosed the location – ha! – so I can now tell you this shot was taken from Pelican Beach Resort on South Water Caye, off the coast of southern Belize – one of my absolute favorite spots. In fact, when I tie the knot some day, I think it will have to be here.
2. The book will be printed in full color
For the first time, the book will be printed in full color, front to back! No more black and white photos. My images of Belize will come to life, beyond the front of book section. Aah… all those long hours and days lugging my equipment, sweating, composing… all worth it. As a travel photographer, I couldn’t be any more excited or grateful. And for months, I’ve been dying to share this news with you all.
3. Moon Belize 2013 is now listed on Amazon: You can pre-order it now!
You can now view my book up on Amazon — the summary is currently being tweaked, per my request — and save your copy by pre-ordering it now at a discount! Feel free to share the link or this blog post with friends or colleagues who may be interested.
A wonderful seven months in Belize have passed.
I am back in the States for a short while — catching up with family, eating lots of my mom’s Ethiopian food and making plans.
But it’s not goodbye, it’s soon come Belize, as they say in Kriol.
I’m also happy to report that my editor gave me glowing feedback on my Moon Belize manuscript — great news to receive on my first day back home. We are both eager to view the first proof pages in July before it goes to print (there’s one more surprise about that – stay tuned).
My next destination is in the works! In the meantime, I’ll be sharing more postcards and tips.
And if there’s anything you’d like to read more about on Belize or on long term travel, feel free to chime in below, I’m more than happy to consider your ideas or answer your trip planning questions.
