More on the book

Well, that was painless. Blurb's software for assembling a book is really very user friendly, especially for this kind of book where you're mostly swapping pages around. I actually did the whole thing in one session with a baby in my lap, although the big monitor helps. One bit of good news is they can print everything flush to the page without borders, so the image size will be a tiny bit larger even though the pages are a bit smaller than Lulu.

So now we wait. I get a copy (which will take a while - they have to print it and send it UPS ground from Lord knows where). I decide if the quality's impressive enough versus Lulu to justify the 50% price increase (sigh) and if I need to make any little tweaks. I may need to reorder another test book if I make enough changes that I feel nervous, but otherwise I just mark it as public and roll with it.

These aren't a big money maker compared to the prints, but they're fun, and people give them as gifts so in some ways they're kind of a permanent advertisement (put the URL in the book!).

Long time lurker, first time poster. Just wanted to say I'm very excited about your work in a book format.
