    Re: Treasured Lands book pre-order

    Have two local Libraries getting the book. I think it will be popular. Well done, beautiful images.
    If you have Libraries where you live make contact and push them to add the Book to their collection. From early comments by patrons the book will be more than worth it.
    One of the nearby small town libraries does a monthly newspaper article as well as a radio promotion show. TREASURED LANDS will be featured in both this time.
    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    Thank you so much Willie. To bring Treasured Lands to fruition, I had to make a substantial investment. The publisher is a small family-owned company. They have few resources for marketing, so I am responsible for most of it. We have to compete with brands such as National Geographic, so I critically depend on word-of-mouth to help pass the word around.

    I was very pleased that not only my hometown (San Jose, CA) libraries got the book, but also it seems quite popular (5 out of 6 copies checked out!), as shown in the screenshot.

    Re: Treasured Lands book

    QT, only happy to give the book a boost for the Libraries. I know some have radio shows or newspaper space on a regular basis. One of our nearby Libraries does and the head person is going to make sure to talk/write about the book.

    It is well done and a good addition to the collection of any Library. Hope you sell enough to have to go into more printings.

    This is a terrific book QT. I have been through it twice now and am really enjoying some of the photographs.

    Thank you very much for all of your work here.

    After the first two, I didn't want to bug you with a dripping of individual award announcements in this thread, but now that the main award season is over, I am very pleased to report that Treasured Lands has won six national book awards out of the seven entered: http://qtl.us/2srIEOO
