Putting together the book took longer than I expected. I thought I would’ve wrapped it up in December, but I fell into my problem of thinking things won’t take as long as they really do take. Plus, I did keep adding and updating things until a few days ago. Café 7 for example got updated (despite the book being done) because of a revisit in which I found out they changed things up.

I’m rather proud of myself with this new book. Why? Last year’s book had 48 pages and I beat with 74. The whole inside of the book was greatly improved and looks more professional. I reorganized the ideas into districts. Featuring Bed and Breakfasts is a great addition. I have an awesome cover designed by Jill Lynch. I like that I got to include some Not Oklahoma places this year, which is part of a small step to do a national project. Again, all of the new content and updated information is cause for celebration.

I wish I would’ve gotten some advertisements in the book, like for spa services or flower shops. I just didn’t have to time to make that effort. I wish I had pictures of places that I didn’t get to personally visit last year. I wish I could’ve added even more ideas in the Tulsa section, but I did give it more pages. If only I didn’t have a day job… I guess I got to save some stuff for 2015.

If you’re wondering what’s next, one of my projects is another Uncovering Oklahoma book. Since this year will mark my fifth year, I thought it would be neat to make a book showcasing my photography and what I’ve learned. I haven’t decided on a title yet. (Uncovered Adventures from a Travel Show Producer? Meh. I don’t know.) The book will be written as a good read even for people that don’t live in Oklahoma as it will have helpful information, beautiful photography, and insights of working on a travel show. I have decided I want to release the book in April, which is the month I filmed the first video back in 2009. This book is also part of a step to do a national travel project and I’m not going to say anything else because it’s way too early.

One major milestone for 2014 done!
