MediaBistro volunteer photographer

Last week I volunteered to take pics of MediaBistro’s Happy Hour Party at Wine House in Austin, TX. You can find the rest of the photos here.

I enjoy taking pictures and wanted to try my hand at taking pics under pressure—there’s nothing like taking pictures from a party not knowing if it will be inside, outside, how many people will be there and making sure you have them all edited with captions by a certain time the next day. The experience was good and just goes to show everything takes longer than you think it will! Everyone at the party was very fun and mostly willing to have their photos taken, although there weren’t a ton of people there. It looked to me to about 30 people throughout the night, although some people were rotating in and out, so it was hard to keep track.

MediaBistro volunteers are also given a credit towards its site to use, so I am using my credit for an AvantGuild membership, which I hope takes my writing business to the next level. You can see more of my photos here.

Buy the book

Hey! I know many people missed the Kickstarter campaign, but still want to pre-order a book and CD. We are taking pre-orders for “Jump Little Cake Jump” at http://jumplittlecake.com/buy-the-book. We are finalizing everything now and expect the book to be back from the printer at the end of the summer. Hooray!

Update: Cupcake book and CD success!

I am super-excited to announce that, not only did we make our Kickstarter campaign, but we made a little bit more than the $7,500 goal. We’re now on our way to making a children’s book! It will have about 12 short songs to go along with it and narrations for each character. If you want to learn more, you can visit Jump Little Cake, Jump!
