Book Deal!

I’m very, very excited to announce that I am teaming up with the fine folks at TSTC publishing to produce a coffee table book featuring my images of the Texas Frontier Forts!!!!

Hope the image in my previous post makes sense now. 😉

I can’t begin to tell you how honored and pleased I am that my work has been chosen to represent some of Texas’ wonderful history and I’m really looking forward to completing this project.

The book is scheduled to be released November 2012 and I have a bit of work to do between now and the end of the year; filling in some gaps in the work I’ve already completed on this project.

More to come soon!
