Hey everyone. I posted something here a month ago for the rough draft of the book I was working on, and am now in the process of completing the actual book. Details are below... but I am doing a coffee table book called WE ARE CUBS FANS and plan to release it this July. It will be a combination of pictures I have taken around Wrigley Field and personal stories from die-hard Cubs fans answering one simple question in around 100 words.... "WHAT THE CUBS MEAN TO ME?".
The biggest thing is I need the stories by this weekend... May 31st. I really want them to be handwritten as it adds a unique aspect. There are many ways you can get them to me - scan & e-mail / fax / or if you have to type it and e-mail. Please check out the website http://www.wearecubsfans.com.
Please help spread the word and GET ME YOUR STORY! The best story submitted by May 31st as judged by myself and a few of my advisors will have the chance to win a pair of Cubs tickets for an August 2008 game. Spread the word, get me your story and Go Cubs. I look forward to hearing from you!

A new book project by Will Byington - needs your help ASAP!
ARE YOU A CUBS FAN?... or do you KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS?
I know many of you are Cubs fans and if you are not, you know someone who is! I need your help... I am self publishing a 128 page hard cover coffee table book about Cubs Fans called WE ARE CUBS FANS. Things have sped up in recent weeks and I am planning to get the book to the printer by June 5th in order to have finished copies by the first week of July!
I have set up a website at http://www.wearecubsfans.com for more details. The book is a collection of pictures I have captured of die-hard, life long fans in and around Wrigley Field last fall and this season along with notes from fans answering the simple question... "What the Cubs mean to me." I prefer handwritten notes... but there are many ways for people to submit a story...
