From Wyoming Author Bill Sniffin: New book features Wyoming’s favorite places – here is your chance to participate
Your area along with other places all over Wyoming will be featured prominently in a new book planned for distribution this fall.
The coffee table book MyWyoming: Stories and Photos of 101 Fascinating Places is by Bill Sniffin. It is the followup to the very successful book published in 2012 called Wyoming’s 7 Greatest Natural Wonders. Format for the new book will be similar to the old book including 30-plus photographers and 14 foldout photos that are 13”x30” in size.
Sniffin is soliciting stories and photos from people all over the state for inclusion in the new book. Persons should send stories about their favorite places to email@example.com or send to PO Box 900, Lander, WY 82520. Editors will try to match up the stories with beautiful photos of that area. Stories will be 150 to 500 words in length.
Persons with outstanding photos of Wyoming are encouraged to submit them, too. They will be paid for the use of their photos.
Top-notch Wyoming photographers like Dewey Vanderhoff, Woody Wooden, Randy Wagner, Dan Hayward and Scott Copeland were included in the last book and will be featured again in the new book.
The earlier book sold 14,000 copies over a 15-month period, making it one of the best-selling books in Wyoming.
