May 31 2016:
Thomas and I had a conference call about his book this afternoon. After comparing the three different ways (Createspace, Blurb, and Local Publisher) to publish his 365 day photography project, we decided to go with the local publisher here in Reno.
We’ve got some work ahead of us to give them an idea of the layout, the introduction, captions and quotes. They have created a “Thomas Student Discount” to make the set-up do able for us.
When I committed to him that I’d create a book out of this project if he stuck with it, I had NO idea how I’d pay for it. For some reason, I have this ability not to let that stop me from pursuing projects (D iz for Different would never have been published if I let that be a project crusher).
I am still amazed and just plain giddy when things line up for projects to come to life. The “Thomas Student Discount” and some other “just for us” accommodations to make this happen is simply magical. We will still need a wee bit of funds to get it going, yet the remainder can be paid with royalties. YAY Thomas!!! xoxo
