The Many Joys of Book Authorship

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

I've never been so proud to be the author of a book as I was when I saw my friend Bart carrying a copy of The Young Birder's Guide in hands-free mode.

In the booth where it was being sold at The Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival, dozens of copies of the book were purchased by blushing female customers following Bart's appearance.

Steven King, John Grisham, Oprah, and that mom that writes lusty vampire books can just eat their collective hearts out.

Snort!! Hands-free YBFG!

Simon looks like he's got a comment about it all queued up.

Was he out birding at the crack of dawn?

Or, is this birding by the seat of one's pants?

Oh. This wasn't a Caption Contest post.

So did you offer to sign it?

That isn't a great place to carry one of the smaller guides like Kaufman or the old Peterson - too easy for it to slip down..... Works pretty well with National Geographic.

Hi Julie - your blog is lovely - maybe we could feature the bird books on www.thegreenpages.com.au
Let us know - or any good stories you have!

All the best
