Cleveland Photo Contest!


 I had to get that out first.

 It's called 67 Things to Miss About Cleveland. And will be available for purchase November 15th.

 But now my editor is requesting I get photos for each thing on my list, and since I don't live in Cleveland myself anymore, I need some help.

 So here's the game. If you'd like to be published in my book, with photo credit, email me submissions at sharpshinyclaws@gmail.com, with a header explaining which Awesome Cleveland Thing your photo is for. You can also submit for more than one thing. I will pick my three favorite photos, and each winner will receive a free copy of the book! (note: I am self publishing, so three is probably the limit I'll be able to afford. I'm in SCHOOL darn it. Also, unfortunately I can't otherwise compensate photos that make it in. So this is for fun, darlings, not pay.)

 The deadline is November 1st, 2012. Good luck and happy shooting!

 Here's the list! You'll notice it's only 66 things. Because I've got 67 covered.
