I remember emailing Peta through Facebook with my crazy idea. The cafe where I wrote the book proposal has long closed down. The babies I rocked in a pram next to me as I carefully crafted our big idea are now pre-schoolers. I recall the joy upon waking to an e-mail from our agent that Random House really REALLY wanted us. For some reason the travel chapter flowed so easily at a table in my new favorite cafe…that cafe is closed now too. So many walks home from dropping Gemma at school were done on autopilot as I had my nose in my phone reading and sending emails during the revision period. It is a different walk home now from a new school.. All those changes over the last 2+ years and one thing has endured…
Tomorrow on the 20th of March in America, it is officially born to the public.
This is just the start for Beyond Snapshots™! One of the first things we have coming up is a Twitter party. Keep in touch on our Facebook page for details!
If you have not already pre-ordered your copy or have not run out to the local book shop to pick one up, there are a few chances to win a book floating around the internet right now. Lensbaby (the lens I used for these shots) and Clickin Moms both have interviews and contests on their blogs! Each has a special extra you could win so check them out. We are also giving a way a signed copy on our own Facebook page, but you must enter to win it on my SESAME ELLIS Facebook page.
Life just flies by us… capture it beautifully.
