With Christmas come and gone its time to get a few things sorted out regarding my book release timetable. A couple of big changes to the release dates for upcoming photography books were made a couple of weeks ago. Quite simply the amount of photography work before Christmas meant I wasn’t able to concentrate on the text for The Two Towns book that was due for release in December.
Rather than rush the book out, I’ve decided to delay the release until the end of next year. It is a drastic change but I really do want to release the book in the runup to the Christmas period. December 2020 will mark the fifth anniversary of the trip to Edinburgh – plus I will have a whole year to work on the introduction and other remaining text for the book. The text hasn’t flowed nearly as easily as I would have liked!
With the delay of the Two Towns book, the next book for release will be Edinburgh: Seven Hills. I plan to release that book in the early Spring. The images are in place as well as a lot of the text. Only the introduction text is left to complete and I have a good idea of what I’m writing for Seven Hills. It will also be the first colour photography book I’ve released so I’ll be breaking new ground.
More details about the Seven Hills book will be added to the website soon.
More Photo Zines
This year saw the release of my first photo book in over eight years. The photo zine ‘Caught by the Tide‘ came out in July and was the first photo magazine I’d ever produced. Overall it was a great experience creating the zine and I plan to do more. I may even put another zine together in 2020 if I can find the right project.
So the year has been a mix of the successful release of the zine and the delay to the second book. Next year should be good with a book release pencilled in for early in the year and also towards the end.
