Instant Love: the cover

I still can’t quite get my head around the fact that I have two books coming out next year. I mean, I did the work. I sat in this chair I am sitting in now and wrote for MONTHS. I shot the images. I pulled out every thread of myself for my book and collaborated with two women I admire so much for the other. And yet, as we get closer to 2012 and the final birthing of the books, I still can’t quite believe it. I’m almost embarrased to have two books coming out — it’s seems so greedy. But that’s just the way it happened. A little bit of serendipity spirinkled on a ton of hard work.

In this age of online magic having a paper book in your hands could be considered rather quaint, but after centuries of the written word, i don’t think they’ll be dying out any time soon. If anything, my Kindle makes me appreciate my paper books even more.  I love watching my nephew playing on his mummy’s iPad but his favourite is still a paper book about tractors.

I got a nice surprise this morning when I noticed the covers of the books had been added to their Amazon listings. It’s a pleasure to be able to finally show you the cover of Instant Love. It’s a book for anyone who loves Polaroids and photography and we hope it will inspire you to go exploring with your cameras!

    Gorgeous Cover! and it’ll jump right out at you on the shelves, wonderful!

    Two books is a huge achievement,well done you. Having written a book myself I know the writing hours,mental angish and roller-coaster emotions that go along with it and oh the time it takes to reach the final goal! Two is outstanding, I wish you every success

    So exciting! The cover looks great!!!!! My Kindle has allowed me to really slim down my book collection and now I only buy paper books if I want to make sure I have them for years to come. I can’t wait to add your books to my shelves!

    Just put my pre-order in!! I was cleaning out my basement a few months back and was so surprised that I found my old Polaroid 210. I had totally forgotten that I still had it. You would’ve thought I’d found gold. Now to find film for it. Can’t wait to get your book. The cards are beautiful so I’m sure the book is gorgeous. Congratulations!!!
