Hello All: Greetings from Garrett Conover in central Maine. I have a lovely log sauna along the Wilson Stream. For about ten years I’ve been working on a photography and text book project with the working title Sauna Magic. No sign of a publisher yet, but an impressive heap of rejection notices as is usually the case in the long exasperating trail of courting publishers. I have a homework assignment from one recipient of my proposal: “convince us that we can sell 5,000 copies of your lyrical and lavishly photographed book and we’ll talk. 10,000 copies and we’ll draw up a contract.” Those may be daunting numbers by themselves, but it is estimated that there are 1 million saunas in North America, which indicates a million people with a known interest. Surely there must be 10,000 people willing to buy a lovely book on a favored topic.

I am super happy you got to the forum. I have checked out your website multiple times in the past! Maybe you can share some inspirational photos at the Sauna Inspiration page?
Thanks for being so cool 🙂October 21, 2017 at 1:17 pm #1052Wilson Stream SaunaParticipant
Dan: Happy to be here. I think I followed to your site either from a post on the 612 Sauna Society FB page or perhaps there was a link directly on one of my pages. Thanks.November 1, 2017 at 5:38 am #1153owen christensenParticipant
