Pitching to the Media and Rich Textures

Today I am over at the The Insecure Writer’s Support Group - Finding Media Outlets and the Pitch. If you want to know how to find media outlets and how to pitch yourself and your book to the media, head on over.

I’m also posting some more photos from our recent trip to the Cape Fear Serpentarium in Wilmington. These shots show you why I love going there and love taking photos of reptiles - so much texture!

  3. I love the NC aquariums. I went to the one in Wilmington one time. These pix are great. I have a photo of that little green snake, OK, maybe not the same one. It's because those skin textures are so great that people want bags and boots.

  12. It's so easy to look beyond the beauty of reptiles but your closeups really show nature's artistic talent and yours.

  17. Oh golly, snakes and big reptiles really creep me out! The other day my husband and I were walking down the main street where all the tourists wander up and down, and there was a guy with a snake wrapped around his neck like a knitted scarf! A big snake, maybe a boa? Not sure, he was gone by the time I got my breath back enough to talk to him.

  24. Those are some creepy photos. There are no snakes in New Zealand, even at Zoos.

  25. Reptiles have amazing skin and some paleontologists think dinosaur skin was just as colorful which would change my whole impression of them. Great job!

  26. Amazing, but kind of creepy too. Snakes are not my favorite animal, yet they are so fascinating to watch.
