Homes Book Best Seller at Boat Show

Lake Washington 130 Homes was a Seattle Boat Show “Best Selling Book” for the second year in a row.  The Boat Show has been in late January and early February of each year and will be for the foreseeable future.  I was at the last two shows signing copies of LW 130 Homes, playing on HDTV a multi-media presentation of the Evening Magazine segment on the book plus the book’s highlights.Books were available for purchase and I was signing them along with having an informal Q&A including my experiences in photographing the mansions and writing and self publishing this unique book.In addition I discussed and presented information on our plans for “LW Map of the StarsTMcruise-tours featuring the book and a soon-to-be-available map.   My table and exhibit were at Captain’s Nautical Supplies booth – Concourse 2237.  I will be at the same place next year.

Attendance and activity this year was up from last year’s low.  Boat sales and interest are picking up.  Hopefully this is a sign that the area’s economy is also picking up.

  1. Very simple post yet cool. The Seattle mansion sounds fabulous and I just wonder what is the inside features. Thank you for this post.

  2. In the past, it was fashionable for the elite society of Europe to pursue the social circuit from country home to country home, with intervals at town homes, so unfortified country houses supplanted castles and the modern mansion began to evolve.seattle fertility acupuncture
