    Well, first we have to get the book finished! LOL!

    Anyone who is still thinking of submitting a story, poem, or photo, you still have time! Thanks to those of you who have submitted! I appreciate it!

    Cheers!

    Default Submission Deadline Approaching....

    The Aug. 30 deadline for submissions to the Orchid Photography book is just about here. Next Wednesday, open submissions will close. At that point, or shortly after, we will start contacting folks by email who have submissions that are going to be included in the book. The email will have a link to a page where you can see the information we would like to include about you in the contributing authors section of the book. I will include the information in PDF form and also in a word file so that you can download the document and type directly onto the form or use it for reference when filling out your bio information. We have already started downloading the photos and choosing page layouts and color combos. It is really an exciting project for us and I thank those of you who have contributed and continue to contribute!

    I hope if you have not yet participated, you will consider doing so. It will be an exciting time when the book comes out!


    Cheers!

    The open submissions for the photography book will end on Wednesday. I just wanted to say thanks again to everyone who have contributed to the book. I really appreciate all of the recent submissions from the newer members too! Around the first week in September look for an email with the link described in my previous post. Until then…

    Cheers!

    Talking

    Well, today I spent most of the day working on the book. I am happy to report that it is coming together very well. I would still like some more diversity in the types of orchids featured within the book. So, to that end, I am opening up the gallery again in hopes of getting some additional shots from the list below.

    These are a few additional orchid genera I would like to have represented in our book:

    Masdevallia, Bulbophyllum, Neofinetia, Cochleanthes, Epidendrum, Angraecum, Rhynchostylis, Vanda, Renanthera, Lycaste, Dracula, Promenaea, Gongora, Maxillaria, Miltonia, Zygopetalum, and Grammatophyllum.

    If you would like to submit a photo(s) that you have taken from any of these groups, please do so! I will leave the gallery open for the next three weeks for additional submissions. On October 16, 2006 I will close the gallery and make sure I have everyone's final information for her/his bio page.

    Once the musical I am directing opens, I will have more time to work on the book in the evenings and give updates here in this thread. Thanks for your help!

    Cheers!

    There is still time to submit an image or two to the book. Thanks to the folks who have added a few new genera! I think it will represent what we all grow better.

    Cheers!
