Author Carol Abrahamson invites architects, interior designers, and other home design professionals across the country to submit their designs for possible publication in her forthcoming book, Extraordinary Homes: Built-in Convenience Features That Make Any Home Truly Special. It will be a color-illustrated reference and master idea book for homeowners and design professionals to use in planning remodeling and building projects. The book's emphasis is on built-in features such as motion-sensor baseboard lighting from bedrooms into bathrooms, outdoor closets to store a hose at every faucet, closets and cabinets whose lights go on as their doors open, and ironing boards and washers/dryers inside master closets.

If selected, submissions will be credited in the book's text and contact information will be included in the professional resources listings in the book and on its companion Web site. The deadline for these submissions is March 2003. Professionals interested in receiving submission guidelines should contact the author at (928) 284-5753 or
