We have nine days left of the year 2014 and let me tell you… it’s going to be an interesting nine days. Come to think about it though, all of 2014 has been interesting in mostly good ways. There have been a few meh moments, but for the most part? It’s been good.
2014 has been action packed around here as three books released, nearly 5,000 photos taken and new soundbites created.
Let’s check out the books!
First of the three books introduced you all to my bear, Buddha!
Buddha’s been riding me since July and most recently has embarked on some new adventures. His first three months with me though had been so action packed that he wanted his own book.
Buddha’s Adventures is the book about Buddha’s run through central and eastern New Mexico. You can check it out at Amazon, Blurb, Google Play or iBooks.
The second book was a part of my graduate project for the Eastern New Mexico University Department of Communication . It’s titled Hipsta New Mexico. Hipsta New Mexico is a journey through New Mexico via the Hipstamatic apps on iOs. It is a full color book that shows the beauty of the places I have been and people I know here in New Mexico.
It’s available on Amazon, Blurb, Google Play and iBooks! Grab yours today!
The last book… which was the second book in my graduate project and part two of my project is the newest collection of poetry. Part one was Hipsta New Mexico- book and exhibition and part three was the academic write-up about the project.
The book is titled Burning Bridges of the Delicate and it is… what it is.
It is a bit of a collaborative effort as my friends Caitlin Barnett did the editing and K.C. Peterson did the hand modeling and lighting (I took the photo). Yes, that is a live lighter and it was exploding from usage as we took about 40 shots to get this one. The last shot, the one that blows up the lighter, turns out to be the best shot. LOL!
The poetry itself is darker in tone and a much deeper expression than my earlier book, The ?s 4 Us. Some of the poems featured in Burning Bridges were blog posts here and you can find them by looking at the poetry tags. There are a lot of cool poems in the book. One of my favorite’s is Dreamt Days and Mind’s Lie. Check out Burning Bridges of the Delicate on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Createspace, Google Play, iBooks, Lulu, Kobo, Oyster, Scribd or Smashwords. Use the ISBN’s 978-1500126742 for print and 978-1311873842 for e-book.
Photo wise? Not sure where to start as I initially thought it was going to be a quiet year. I was so wrong!
That’s a TINY fraction of what has gone on this year! A lot of photos and a lot of fun! It was wild shooting!
The last thing…
Two readings from the book Burning Bridges of the Delicate. Two that… I hope inspire someone.
We’re (not) Sorry
So yeah… the next few days are going to be interesting. A lot of new ideas are coming and I am just hoping to knock it all out!
