View Full Version : Cover/feature in a national glossy!

05-31-2007, 10:16 PM
Recovering lurker here. Just wanted to let out a little cyber-yippee-

my 2500-words-plus-photos feature "Fear and Entrapment on Bad God Mountain" (a story about climbing Devil's Tower, WY) appears in, and is mentioned on the cover of, the debut issue of Outer Edge, a new Australian adventure glossy with a 50,000+ print run. Since my general writing goal is to "make it" as a travel/outdoors/adventure writer, this is a HUGE step.

I'm going to put the piece up on my website in the next few weeks. I don't want to link to my site yet because there is some mysterious problem with the "clips" page, but when I fix it I will come back and add a link. Just in case any of y'all are curious.

Thanks all! I'm not a drinker, so I'll leave the champagne to you. But I may have eaten half a cup of brownie batter last night in celebration...

Side note: I discovered that using coffee instead of water when making the "add oil, eggs, and water" variety of boxed brownie mix makes the brownies mocha-like and extra delicious.

Great news, congrats (ETA: on the feature, and the new brownie receipe, too LOL)!
