I received an exciting e-mail from Jana Holstein, Managing Editor of Somerset Memories (used to be Legacy Magazine). They picked up a layout of mine a while ago. Then, they asked me to write an article on "creating your own background" to go with the layout. Then, I received this e-mail:
I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know of a *slight* change in plans, about which I hope you’ll be excited. My publisher was so captivated by your “Spying On My Brother” layout, that she’s decided to launch a new department in Somerset Memories. We’ll be calling it “Anatomy of a Page,” and it will focus on a brilliantly executed layout in which we show close-ups of specific details that make up the page in its entirety. Of course, the entire page will be shown as well. Right now it’s slated as a 2-page feature....We’re excited about this new department within the pages of Somerset Memories and feel it will be well received by our readers. You can be especially proud of the fact that it was your layout that spawned the development of this new section! Congratulations!
Pretty cool, right!?
