I finally finished up Rain :: Volume II today, just short of 6 months since I first blogged about the idea. I proof read it several times, ran spell check, proof read it some more, and finally ordered the first copy! It will take about a week to print and 3-5 days to get here, so I should hopefully have it in hand before I graduate. Assuming everything looks good, this puts me on track for a May 8th release date, which is what I was hoping for. I did not end up putting an ISBN on this book for a variety of reasons. Next time I guess.
The Rain :: Volume II came out 59 pages with around 70 photos. An introduction, a handful of short stories, a handful of anecdotes, and a special conclusion. Almost all the photos (except for three, I believe) have exposure (focal length, speed, aperture, and ISO), date, and location information. Final price is $40.951 plus shipping (which is almost another $9). Please note that I am not making any money off this book. If you feel that I should be, you may use the donation button found on my site.
I am planning on making available a special limited edition signed copy. This copy will be about $36.86 (yes, cheaper), plus shipping2. Because I have to order at least 10 copies to get this discount, I will A) need at least ten people to B) prepay. All the details about how to do this will be available on May 8th.
In the mean time, sit back, relax, and know that awesomeness is soon to come.
