I've been contacted by a publisher

Red flash caladiumAnd he wants to use a picture from my gardening blog in a children's book on container gardening.

Seriously, if you'd ever told me I'd get into print as a photographer I would have said you were nuts.

I'll get credited and will receive a copy of the book. Very, very cool.

But the irony of it is killing me.

Hey publishers, I've got a manuscript for you! Yoohoo! Over here!

How crazy cool! Good for you, Janet.

And if he knows anyone he can refer you to. ;)

Ohmigosh, the irony is funny! I groaned out loud, seriously!

Janet said...

Spy, I think I did too. I'm not even a serious hobbyist with a camera, so it's REALLY ironic.

I told him I was honoured, and I am, but, you know...

Could be a sign of a hidden talent. Something to think about...

Very cool! Is that the photo they want to use? Congratulations!

Janet said...

Thanks Janna.

Ed, I would be too intimidated. One of my cousins is the only person in history to be the official photographer for two Canadian prime ministers. ;o) I'm not even a serious hobbyist.

Tara, yes, that's the one.

Dawn and Melanie, thanks. I couldn't agree more.
