Scenic Seattle now available for Pre-Sale

The Face of SuzzalloI’ve been too busy to write much lately, but I wanted to tell you that my book Scenic Seattle, Touring and Photographing the Emerald City is now available for pre-sale on Amazon. This is an updated and expanded version of the ebook I published in 2013. My publisher, Schiffer Publishing, sent me the a color layout draft of the book this week for markup. The main purpose of this draft is to make sure the photographs are placed in the correct places and have the correct captions, to make sure the previous edits from the text galleys were done correctly, and to start populating the index with page numbers. Then it’s back the publisher next Monday. They will send one more draft for a last check before being printed, and finally it will be available in June.

If you are interested in buying the book, you can pre-order on Amazon, or you might want to wait until the book is printed, after which I will be offering it for a special price on my blog. Stayed tuned for details!

The photo above is of the Suzzallo Library on the University of Washington campus in Seattle, just one of the many places described in the book. The photo, by the way, didn’t make the cut for the book.

  1. Congratulations on your book. Looks good and I hope you have much success with it. I see it is available on Amazon. Did you write your book through Createspace or someone else. I also sell through Amazon, but looking for a better online company to upload my recent novel for publication.

    • No, I wrote it by myself. For the original ebook, I used an online service for the formatting. Then when I decided I wanted to do an updated print version, I shopped it to several traditional book publishers. Schiffer picked it up, and I did the rewrite, shot some new photos, and sent the whole thing in to them.
