Thanks everyone... my sister-in-law bought me the book and surprised me with it. I was really weird to see it in person.

I wrote the publisher and requested some type of book tour for me to do signings, but they said it wasn't really necessary. Then I told them they WILL let me do a book tour or I'll whip out some of my Green Beret training on them. They said I wasn't really a Green Beret and that they didn't like being threatened. Oh well...

Now drop and give me a good Marine Corp 50 because they portray your image as a John Wayne, child loving, do gooder, green beret.


you forgot to end with "Semper Fi, Do or Die!"


Congratulations on the publishing man, that has got to be an awesome feeling. Hopefully more to come.


Yeah, you're correct......SEMPER FI, do or die Marine.

I added a couple more details to the last quote.

That's really cool, congrats!

Bummer about the Green Beret thing, but at least they didn't say you were in the Navy.

Congrats big time, thats really good news, and yeah, it may not be alot of money but for me its more about the exposure ( no pun intended!) you receive, especially if you are just starting out. Hope it continues to get even better for you, and it does give the rest of us hope!

Awesome, Todd! Congrats! And I love this quote:

The other potential here is that you said you received a credit on it. That now makes you "searchable." Who knows?

Thanks! I still can't get the smile off my face!

The way I look at it is this... if I wouldn't have had it out there I wouldn't have ever been published. To be honest, if someone would have written me and asked me if they could have used it for free I would have said yes. Photography isn't a business to me... unless someone offers me money.
