I've gotten a few questions I forgot to address about the book and figured I'd post them here so everyone can read the answers:

1. I thought in the beginning that the sales from this book were going to charity. Is this still the case?

That was originally what we were aiming to do, but then discovered that according to what charity you pick, the project (be it a book, fundraising event, newspaper, etc) had to be approved by said charity each step of the way. So for this first project we've decided not to be associated with any particular charity. That being decided, we've chosen to keep the cost of the book as low as possible, so neither Grace nor I are making a profit off the book. (I think I've actually *lost* money, lol I've had to order multiple proof copies!)

2. Might it be possible to purchase the book at cost if I wanted to bring copies to sell at events (and is that permitted)? Or is the existing price already at cost?

The book price is set at cost right now. What that means is the $22.10 you're paying is what it costs Lulu to create and print the book. No profit is being generated from it. Unfortunately since I can't give out free copies to each contributing artist, we wanted to keep the book as affordable as possible.

Yes! If you'd like to purchase multiple copies of MP to sell at events please do so! This will increase everyone's visibility as an artist and would just be awesome in general.  :)  And if you take photos of the event, please let me know and I'll post them on the blog for everyone to see.

Progress Update

Hi everyone - here is the latest update on the book: I ended up getting sick and then ran into some unexpected color issues with the proof copy. I am currently working with Lulu to straighten them out. Hopefully it shouldn't be too much longer, thank you for your patience!

Proof Copy GET

I'm excited to say I have JUST received the proof copy of MP in the mail today! Grace and I are going to go over the book together tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon, but I can already see that there will definitely need to be a couple changes implemented. (nothing too major - don't worry I didn't leave anyone's artwork out!)

I am extremely happy with the print and paper quality, though. It's very professional and I can't wait to show you guys!

Book Progress

I want to thank everyone for your patience, we're still working on getting Midnight Phantasmagory published. Assembling each artists' pages and doing the layout took longer than I anticipated - I was also having some technical issues with, but I believe everything is fixed now; I'm just combing over the book one last time to make sure there are no spelling mistakes, etc.

Proof Copy

Another short progress update on the book - I'm in the process of uploading all the pages to Lulu. I'm aiming to order a proof copy by July 31st because Lulu's running a special until then where the first book is free for new authors. Grace & I will use this copy as a last, final check to make sure everything is correct before we send out the link to the published book for everyone.

(Deanne & Kasey, I've checked over both your pages twice, but since I haven't heard anything from either of you I'm just going ahead and uploading them).
