There’s a new marketing service for Barnes and Noble authors. It’s called Bublish (https://www.bublish.com/home). They offered a free trial for two months, so I decided to give it a try. It’s pretty cool. It hasn’t actually helped me sell anything yet as far as I can tell, but I like the way it works. You upload the epub version of your book, then select a chapter or some excerpt, which they call a bubble. You can then share that bubble via Twitter or Facebook. The other cool thing is that they post tweets for me on weekends, and the last two Mondays I have been part of their floating bookstore through Storify.com

Here’s a link to my Bublish Author Profile.

In the process of working on the flower photography book, I find it really difficult to decide when to stop. I now have 144 photos in my gallery, and yet I keep shooting. I am giving myself until mid-late June; then I have to stop and put the book together. I have come up with a cool idea though. Sometimes when I just don’t feel like going anywhere, I just go to my yard, or the yard of one of my neighbors. I have explained what I am doing, and they have happily agreed to allow me to traipse through their gardens with my camera. Today’s photos are from my next door neighbor, and the neighbor two doors up. They are dramatically different gardeners. One keeps their garden pristine. Every thing is controlled, and as near perfect as possible. They other likes the wildness of nature. There are many wildflowers (some would say weeds), but also many beautiful things he has planted. The peonies are from the pristine garden. The purple iris and poppy are from my “wilder” neighbor. The Old English rose is from my garden. Starting next week, I will share a poem each Friday (most likely). It’s your job to hold me to this. 🙂BobkasthPurpleIris-edited

This photo is from Virginia Commonwealth University’s Multicultural Festival. The event was held in a park that is known for its homeless population. The park is effectively on VCU’s campus, so it was the perfect location. So, included in the many cultures was the culture of homelessness. The man in the photo below was having a great time performing for the crowd. I chose to make the background black and white for a couple of reasons. First of all, he loved being the center of attention, so I tried to do just that with this photo. Secondly, he obviously wasn’t letting his dire circumstances bring him down that day, so I made him a colorful spot within a subdued background.
