tomato-face children in mary's mole
I want to thank everyone for the feedback, regarding the book idea. I'm extremely happy Andrea is cool with this idea too. Again, I know we're all busy and I'm hoping nobody feels pressured or anything. I think we all have a lot to offer, and maybe I'm being way too naive and optimistic, but I think we have a shot at a book. I just researched several publishers who I think would be into our work, including Chronicle, Phaidon, and Upper Playground, to name a few. At the end of the month I'll be e-mailing some people at Moleskine, to see if they can get behind us.
Some of these companies require about a three-to-six month wait for a reply, which is fine. In the meantime, we can still consider the online publishing route. I'm glad Jess has some contacts, and any help whatsoever is a good thing. We might want to consider doing a self-published book first then send it out to some of the pros afterwards even.
Again, I hope I don't seem to off-putting here, or gung-ho, but I don't want to see an opportunity for something good and let it pass on by, only to regret it later on. In the meantime, I hope everyone's doing well and enjoying the remainder of their summers, and thanks again for the feedback all!
