I submitted the photos in question on October 29. If they’re to be included in the field guide, I suspect it might be up to 30 days before I know for certain.
The last update? An e-mail from the publisher:
Thanks Jason. We’ll decide what we need and be in touch with you. It can be a slow process.
Keep in mind they contacted me, not the other way around, so I have at least some hope that my pictures already have a leg up on the competition.
Time will tell, though. I’ll keep you posted.
