As you all know I have published a couple of books last year, a fact that makes me a very proud author. My Dutch book is sold out now and my book in English is nearing the same milestone soon.
But there’s going to be more of it. Today I received the ISBN for the American version of my book A taste of love. The publisher in America has sent me the proof for the book and the cover and I gladly gave my approval.
So in the coming weeks I will be informed about the publishing date and the final result. I will keep this a secret for a while until it’s finally there but the book cover will show a picture that is very dear to me and a lot of my friends.
Exciting news, a third ISBN in my name added to the collection. Well, soon anyway.
Update 1 June 2018: unfortunately they went bankrupt and the entire stock of the company was destroyed at the curator’s orders.
Some of my friends say I should be considering a career as a professional photographer, they’ve been saying it for years now. And when they say it they make me smile. The truth is I think it’s nice to go out in nature and take pictures of flowers, insects, mushrooms, birds or whatever attracts my attention and I thoroughly enjoy it but I also think that I will never be good enough when I compare my work to that of those who are already professionals.
And I am somewhat scared that if I choose to become a professional in this field I might not enjoy my pictures as I do now. They would be reduced to ‘bread on the table’.
Facebook wanted me to collect some pictures I posted there over the last year but I am much more a man of words really, although I do take a good picture every once in a while.
But the main event of 2015 was mostly my own little anniversary of writing down thoughts, stories, blogs and poems over the last 10 years.
I quite enjoy doing that although I know I can be a bore sometimes to you when I pester you lot with my poems. So if you want me to stop doing that you can tell me straight up but I must warn you that I most probably won’t listen, I will continue writing!
To the next 10 years. Cheers!
