I honestly cannot believe all of the good things that have been happening in my life lately...I mean, as if this past Friday night's celebration of the Grand Opening my new photography gallery, in tandem with with the first ever solo show for Photographer Osmyn Oree - with so many of my wonderful friends in attendance, along with family members, and folks that I'd never met before - and then selling one of Osmyn's gorgeous prints, on top of all that - wasn't enough to have me floating on air - I've got a couple of other cool things going on, as well:
Haje Jan Kamps' new book, "Shooting Yourself - Self-Portraits with Attitude" was recently published, and is available for purchase through The Ilex Press, and Amazon.com UK. Haje very kindly featured me and my selfpics in our own special chapter - plus, several more of my self-portraits appear on various pages throughout the book. I am so elated over having had my work and my story included in the book...I just keep thinking, "Could somebody pinch me please? This cannot possibly be real!"
THANK You, Haje, and congratulations! You must be positively delighted with how well the book turned out!
And in other kickass, breaking news - the incomprehensibly sweet, thoughtful, and generous fellow blogger Molly, of Molly's Daily Kiss - took it upon herself to put my name in the hat as a potential speaker at Eroticon USA 2013 (which is scheduled to take place this October 19th, in Atlanta, Ga.) - after which, event organizer, Ruby Kiddell contacted me, and officially invited me to submit a proposal (which naturally, I did) and the next thing I knew - there was my name and bio on the roster of speakers who will be participating in the weekend's events! Can you believe that?! Little ole ME - leading a discussion about erotic photography, and hosting a self-portraiture workshop at Eroticon's first engagement here in The States!!!
All of these amazing, new developments practically blow my fool mind! I'm not sure what I did to get so lucky, but I'm not asking any questions...think I'll just count my blessings, and continue to revel in all of the excitement :)
