Many of you know I have been writing a book that is now out. It is called House Proud Unique Homes of Louisiana, published by Glitterati. In fact many of you have purchased it, and I thank you.

- In fact there are many many people to thank. There are the bloggers and the blog readers. Being a blogger has made everything possible.
- There is Deb Shriver who did the foreword, and pointed me to the publisher.
- There is my publisher Glitterati.
- There are the homeowners who let me into their homes and hearts.
- There is the city of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana, and all the creatives here who embrace me and help me all the time.
- There is Sara Essex Bradley who is not just a photographer, but that once in a lifetime creative soul mate that I am privileged to have.
- There is my family. My sister Cher is my biggest cheerleader and inspiration.
- And there is always Alberto. Words cannot describe his dedication to me, and his constant belief in my talent. Ours is a love story, that goes beyond love.
So to help celebrate, Glitterati is giving away three copies of House Proud!
