Take That First Step by Camilla Downs – Part Two

January 29 2018:

A continuation of thoughts shared two weeks ago. Do you need to have the means before you begin creating? I say start where you are and grow from there. Here’s an excerpt … xoxo

” …. so I’m going to get to the bottom line first thing. And those who are interested about the entire story can read further. Lillian’s book was published with absolutely no money paid out to anyone for the creation of the book. That’s it!

Now, there was a bit of money paid for the ISBN bar code graphic (about $20), for envelopes to mail the books once received (about $15), and for two proof copies of the book (about $15 each which included shipping).

I want to reiterate that I am not sharing this to brag or gloat. That is not my nature. I am sharing this to give hope, to share …… ”

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Now, for Thomas’ book, Biggest Little Photographer. His book did cost us a bit of up front money as it is a photography book and these are not the type of book to use Amazon’s createspace for publishing and printing.

When Thomas was 8 years old, he began a 365 day photography project. Every day for one year he made a photo of a LEGO mini-figure photographer making a photo. We took that little man with us everywhere!! For one full year he traveled with Thomas and Team TLC. In the beginning, I told Thomas that if he stuck with it, we’d make it into a book.

New Discovery for Thomas

September 15 2016:

A couple of weeks ago I discovered there is a “Brick Store” here in Reno. Thomas was with me today and we went inside to check it out.

A great, locally owned place and the manager there is so awesome!!
Thomas said he couldn’t even describe the feelings he had in that store. It felt good. Good energy, good vibes!!

PLUS, I think you’ll be seeing Thomas’ upcoming book, Biggest Little Photographer, in that little ole store! Wahoo!! Bet they’d love for Thomas to have a book signing there! Stay tuned! xoxoxo
