  1. GREAT excerpt. I'll admit to having BAMMED an elevator button myself, and these sentences really capture that. Love the cover too.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.
