Published!

I’ve been neglecting the blog lately.  Bad form. One might think I’ve been enjoying a winter’s rest, but that hasn’t been the case.

I do have some wonderful news to share….news that I’ve been guarding for a while. Meditation For Two is going to be published in the United States by Trafalgar Square’s Horse and Rider Books! I couldn’t be happier about the whole experience.  The people at Trafalgar are marvelous to work with and I have only optimism and hope for continued collaboration.  None of this would have happened were it not for two people: Dominique Barbier and Sam Abell.  Dominique has had an illustrious career as one of our finest living Masters of Classical Dressage and has a number of publishing successes to his name as well.  This smoothed the way for me…..the newbie….to have a book published with such a respected organization.  Thank you, Dominique.  And to Sam Abell I offer thanks for the belief in the work, the encouragement to pursue a dream, and the tools to design and create a humble, meaning filled book.

And before the release in the US, the book will be available in Germany and Switzerland on March 1st.  The title has been changed for the German edition. It will be published as: The True Nature of the Horse, and what it teaches those who love.  It’s a mouthful for sure, but one of cultural nuance.  And herein lies a lesson. The book is in the incredibly capable hands of the team at Wu-Wei Verlag. I had to keep telling myself that when the design was completely changed, when the title was changed, indeed even the shape of the book was changed.  So authors and photographers beware: it is often the case that when your work is handed over your ability to control your product ceases.

Trafalgar Square has chosen to keep the original design, completely.  It will be interesting to see how each volume performs in the marketplace, how each book is promoted, what the differences will be and how the public will perceive it.  I’m looking forward to the journey.

As I have received a great deal of encouragement about my photography, my poetry in the book and my writing on the blog, I am now working on a book that combines the three. I’ll post excerpts from time to time here and invite comment.  I thank you in advance for your participation in the discussion.

    Keron: Ah! Control over one’s photo’s and writings is a hallmark of all photographers and writers. I indeed do “love” your poetry on your website. It has show me the inner workings of your heart and mind. Congrats on the publishing of your new book on horses. They are the love of many lives. And of course yours. I’m looking forward to your coming back to She-town. It will be a pleasure to see you and learn from your talented eye for photographs.

    Hopefully your trips abroad have been good. I’m slogging through 10 inches of new snow and actually hating it. Although you and I had a wonderful time taking pics in a Feb. snow here in town.

    Be well Keron,

    K. Here’s a link to my website and pics of me and my siblings, and my dad who left this earth 31 years ago. He was an artist/illustrator when he was in his prime.

    Enjoy looking at them. Check me out pushing the lawnmower when I was 13 years old. Pretty amazing!

    Bye for now.
