Archive for the ‘Hampton Press’ tag
Well, I finally put the book up at ISSUU. In a way, it was quite hard to let this one be put up, unlike the first book. Why? It isn’t finished yet. There is more yet to do if the book is to actually find its way into print format. I am trying hard to get this put into the print world using Hampton Press at the moment. Will it make the cut? Will it be rejected? Will I have to self-publish? All questions that I am sure that every author feels when trying to break into the publishing world. It is about confidence.
I know the book is good, very good. I realize that this sounds egotistical and filled with hubris, yet I do sense that this different approach to getting the word out about Jung and Jungian Psychology has an important role to play. So why the doubts? Well, I am not a certified Jungian analyst and that fact discredits my efforts in that community. So, now, it is up to the wider community to either accept or ignore this effort.
This book isn’t about photography or poetry though both are featured in prominent positions in the book. It isn’t even about the SoFoBoMo challenge. That challenge was an excuse to make a book that has been sitting waiting for me to realize its presence within. For that, I am thankful to Paul Butzi and the challenge he offered to so many photographers, both amateur and professional alike.
This book is about community, what I am giving back to community. It is also about the dialogues I am having with others who are reading and then discussing with me, this book. This process began partway through the book as I sought to make sure that I was heading in the right direction; and the process continues even though it is now released in a web version in time to qualify for the SoFoBoMo challenge.
So, does this book have meaning for you? Would you care to talk about it? If so, the book is available for reading by clicking on the image of the book off to the right side of this post, or clicking here.
