Don’t Miss Out
While I do post things on Facebook, most posts aren’t seen. I don't know how many times I've missed things from other people, only to find out the day AFTER something happened. The solution? Subscribe to a newsletter. (Just be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email address book, and if you use Gmail, please please please read the information below so I don't disappear into Gmail la-la-land.)

THE BOOK: What Mental Illness Feels Like—Images & Stories
For people not interested in my regular nature photography newsletter, I've created an email sign up that is ONLY for updates on the creation and publication of the book based on the What Mental Illness Feels Like project. You will ONLY receive updates pertaining to the book, nothing else.*
The book newsletter will include: Progress notes, excerpts, exact publication date, etc. that will be emailed every couple of months. Tentative publication is 2020.
If you are already subscribed to my photography newsletter, do nothing. You'll get these updates as part of what you already receive.
* At some point after the book is published, the book newsletter will end. You’ll be informed well in advance.

If you have a gmail account
Gmail includes a feature called inbox tabs, which uses different tabs to organize your mail into categories. Tabs are available on both desktop and mobile versions of Gmail. My emails might end up in your Promotions tab in your Gmail account. Some people never look at that folder and maybe wonder why they don't receive newsletters they've subscribed to. Here' show to solve that problem.
Place email in Primary tab
The best way to ensure your emails appear in the Primary tab is to manually set this up in your Gmail account. There are a couple different ways you can ensure that an email will show in a specific tab.
Drag and Drop
The easiest way to move an email in your inbox is to left-click and hold on the email to drag it from the Promotions tab over to the Primary tab.
Release the mouse to drop the email into the newly selected tab. Once dropped, Gmail displays a yellow box that asks if you want to make this change permanent. Click Yes to ensure that all messages with the same From email address appear in the Primary tab going forward.
Similar to the drag-and-drop option,
Right-click on the email in some browsers to bring up a small list of options. Click the Move to tab option and select the tab you want to move the email to.
A yellow box will display that asks if you want to make this change permanent. Click Yes to ensure that all messages with the same From email address will appear in the Primary tab going forward.
