    Default Braggin' Rights - Ghost Town Book

    Just thought you guys might be interested in a brand new ghost town book that was just published. Some time ago I was contacted by a publishing company in Lincolnwood Ill. As a result they used a number of photos that I had taken over the years and have been posted on this forum. The book has now been published. I received a copy yesterday and I'm impressed with the content and quality of the publication. A lot of the towns we discuss here on this forum are featured in the book. Numerous photographers were featured in the publication and the final result is outstanding. The name of the book is Ghost Towns Yesterday and Today.

    That's really cool Don. I'm curious, did you strike the deal before posting photos here, or after? In other words, I've always heard you should never post a photo that you plan to publish in print. (The publishers don't want them online before they print). Is that true?

    Really don't know. I have 2 copies and would assume that if not already, it would be very soon.

    Only after you quit picking on Darin. Right now you are on suspension for your poor attitude in re Darin. We might consider your request after you change your ways and show some respect for him.
