A while back I wrote about how I was contacted out of the blue by a phone book company. They had stumbled across my photos and picked one in particular that they liked in hopes of it being the next cover photo for the 2012-2013 phone book. I didn't even know they had cover photos for phone books, but apparently they do!
And now one apparently has my photo on the cover, see?!
Two copies of the phone book arrived in the mail yesterday. It was a request of mine for using the photo. Since I don't live up north I wouldn't have gotten to hold the actual proof of my published photo in my hands otherwise. However, if you live in northern Vermont and New Hampshire you will get your very own copy!
What's even cooler is that my name and my website is published on the first page! I wonder how many people will notice it?
While being on the cover of a phone book is not like my photos making it into National Geographic or even Yankee Magazine (a New England specific magazine that has great photos) I am going to still count it as legitimately being published.
Hey, you have to start somewhere, right?
