I'VE PUBLISHED MY FIRST BOOK!

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 22, 2014, 4:27 PM
:iconduck::iconsaysplz: Productivity happened?!


...yeah, surprisingly.  I've been busy and yet not so busy.  Some of it is part of a long and really stupid tale of wasted time and other issues. Other parts of it are chalked up to life, love, stress and setbacks.  For one, I've been getting ready for school.

:iconduck::iconsaysplz: THIS OL' ROAD AGAIN, HUH...

Except this time the fees are actually being worked out. All I've gotta worry about is transportation and whether or not I'm taking extra classes.  What am I majoring in? Computer Information Sciences... I know, right?  Why not photography?  'cause the school I'm going to wouldn't really be teaching me anything I didn't already know and wasn't already learning... and I like computers, so hey, let's go!

I'm still gonna be a photographer, that'll never go away. Shutter clicks until the casket

However, that's not what this journal is about as you can see from the headline.
I just released my first photobook, "Nouns (of The Person and Place Variety)" and it's good stuff. :D  It's full of street photography and portraiture that I've taken over a period of time.

:iconduck::iconsaysplz:Where are you selling the book? "Mr. I'm gonna use a duck icon to talk to myself".

Well, Mr. I'm a duck icon used by myself to talk to myself... I'm selling it at blurb in both e-book AND softcover print. You can check it out here www.blurb.com/b/5380870-nouns-… OR  head over to (for Australians au.blurb.com/b/5380870-nouns-o…)and pick up a copy for yourself, your loved ones or the waiting room in your local hospital or dentists office.

:iconduck::iconsaysplz: So what about previews, huh? 
The cover looks like this:
 Reaper-X - Nouns Book Cover by UseR2006

and, morbidman187 picked up a copy and took pictures of it, so you can tell it's a real book that he purchased with money. The pictures are hosted by UseR2006 because he did a big favor by featuring it on his journal:

You can also see some of the other pages at the blurb link here.

I'm proud of it and so far a lot of people like what I've put into it. I honestly hope you will too as it is my first book and I feel it showcases my best work so far.

and I'm still working on stuff... I'm already working on putting the next book together. Wanna help make that happen?  Buy this book.  It'll help me with loads of stuff, particularly school stuff and photo equipment.... mostly school stuff, honestly.  I'm saving up to get a vehicle to make this travel stuff easier.

On top of that I still need to hit up spyed and/or LaurenKitsune about some new features as mentioned in this one journal. (What's up?)

So, what do you think?  How are you?  Talk to me, I've not posted a journal in FOREVER.

Hope you're well.

Sincerely,
Oslo Redgrave

Hi, I'm Oslo... Nice to meet you.
I was one volunteer of the Community Volunteer team among many upstanding lads and lasses that made up the team. Which means you might have found me in #devart and doing other awesome activities that just make people smile... (or groan depending on what end of the spectrum you're on. Groaners on the failside)

I'm the founder and student of DACipher a group geared towards spreading knowledge throughout the community and providing a positive and gateway into artistic growth. You should check us out.

I'm a photographer too.. You can check out all of my other stuff at Depth Mental Photography via those links below. :)

I'm a metalhead and I've been one for years, if you wanna see what I listen to, I'm Reaper-X on Last.Fm. Feel free to comment on our Taste-o-Meter compatibility if you also use Last.FM.

I'm also an aspiring musician working on a "super secret project" with a rather narcissistic name, in my opinion at least, attached to it. It's going to have an all deviant lineup, so keep an eye or two peeled for that.

Really, I just want to be happy again.

I am not from Indonesia.

Favourite genre of music: Heavy Metal and Heavy Metal Accessories. Some Hip-Hop, rock and whatever else I feel sounds good.

I had no idea what was going on. Glad you're okay, though.
