Okay, so I started a google group where we can all discuss the locations of Houston and you guys can send us pictures and stuff.
When I was in Houston, I took a ton of pictures. But I just didn’t have enough time to get it all down. I was really interested in a lot of the vegetation and trees, for example, but was mostly just able to drive by those areas. I didn’t get to see the Water Wall either. Well, I saw it, but it was night and too dark.
A lot of people also were explaining their neighborhoods to me, and I’d love to make sure that everyone gets represented in the book. For example, I was told a bunch of times about the large Vietnamese population and how I needed to head down to their part of town. But I couldn’t!
So the way that the group works is, you send an email to the group account, and everyone can get that email and read it and reply to it. So if Chris or I need anything specific, we can just send an email to the group, and if you set your settings so that it goes right to your email, you will get an email from us asking for specific reference.
I also have no problem with anybody using the group just to communicate with one another or with Chris or I about the book.
So here’s what I need. If you want to be a part of this, shoot me an email at stegmanr at gmail dot com. Or send me your email via Twitter. I’ll add you to the group. Please make your settings so that you get emails, at least the digest version. It’s the best way to stay on top of it.
And if you have friends that you think might be interested, let them know to contact me as well. The more the merrier!
After meeting all of you guys and seeing how excited you were for the book, the least I can do is do your city proud.
