Congratulations, Philo! I hope you make some money from the book. And
remember: you're entitled to blow every cent of it on camera equipment!

Thank you!


Though I sold a few locally,
thanks to the glowing review I got I made my first Amazon sale today.

In all honesty I will be lucky if I just break even on the project
but it was not a lot of money


However, I took your advice and will be getting some more camera equipment.

My house is full of cameras and art work/ photography
yet I buy my clothing at Goodwill.

Congratulations on getting it published. Way to go. I hope you receive
much satisfaction from this venture.

Thanks

After doing photography for 40 years it makes me feel good to at least
get a little bit of recognition...but most of all, it's just fun!

Last dude I knew off a NG who went on to author a book was Paul Martz who
wrote OpenGL Distilled. Another bunch of flakes went on to achieve some
success with a project they'd been developing on the sly. Serious Sam.

And if you expect me to now treat you an atom differently either way or peel
your grapes you can **** off, okay? :-)

In 1995 I came out with a poetry chap book entitled " Sometimes I Feel
Like a Poisoned Rat"

A local book store picked it up and I made steady, undecling sales for
two solid years in a row.



One copy per year

each year I got a check for $2

but now that money has pretty well run out so I had to come up with a
new book in order for me to buy food, pay my chauffeur and pay my
extensive staff of servants



My photography book has already sold about 15 copies
and if I sell about 20 more, I'll break even.
That's all I'm shootin' for.

What really made me happy though, was the woman who reviewed the book
has a lot of credentials and her review gave me a bit of "street cred."

When I first emailed the news of my book to everyone I could think of,
I got almost no comments.

When I re-emailed the review to my same mailing list
I got scores of congratulations and even a few sales.

Damn I really lucked out.

Because the book is being sold thru Amazon...
I have to report my income to the IRS


Do you know how much tax I'd have to pay on $10 ????



I'm guessing $20 or so

Cool.

Call me cheap. I browsed through the Amazon 'look inside' thing scamming a
freebie. Tight ****ers. They only showed one photo of a guy with a cigar
sitting in the bar and you on the back. So that dude in the beret was you?
Shouldn't laugh. Christ, you should see me. I've got that burned out doper
stopped by the cops look down pat.

Nothing on Amazon UK but Waterstones might be able to order it? (I think
they swallow the shipping costs as orders get crated and shipped in bulk at
a guess.)

Thanks


yep that's me on the back, but when I take the beret off I look like any
other 62 year old bald man.

If you or anyone wants a book

you can always buy one direct

I'll autograph it and pay shipping


my gmail addy is philo565




BTW: I have not looked like a burned out doper in over 30 years

The last time I got got a speeding ticket, I was so polite and old
looking the cop felt remorse and told me to take it to court and they'd
give me a non-moving violation. It was a small town and all they wanted
was the money. So my "moving violation" record is clean.

I am now a hardened criminal as it's on my record that I vandalized a
street sign !!!!!
