Details about the Book Deal

It's funny that my life is so centered around the book that I forgot to give details. Thanks to everyone who pointed out my error. The book will contain 30 stories based on a discovery made about a quilt. Voyageur Press is publishing it. They asked me (you could have knocked me over with a feather) to write it. In so many ways, this was a book made for me and I am so thankful that Voyageur Press felt the same way.  I'm still looking for stories so if you have a story that meets this criteria, please get in touch with me. Read carefully. Remember this is not my idea so I don't have a lot of latitude.

1. Your story must be long enough for me to write a 2,000 word essay. It's a lot of words--about three single spaced pages. I need lots and lots of details!
2. Your story must include an element of discovery either about the quilt or the maker. There has to be a surprise element.
3. You must have a high resolution digital (300 dpi)  photo of the entire quilt with no one or no thing in it. It can also be a transparency. Or be willing to have the quilt professionally photographed. If your photo does not look professional, it will be refused. Remember this is going into a book!

I am working on my 12th story. I feel pretty good since I only started writing on September 20th. I have to have it done by January 15. I am up to the challenge! At least that is what I keep telling myself at 2 a.m.
