One More Stop To Print!

Well as noted I’ve been working on print copies of Focused Fandom: Cosplay, Costuming, and Careers and Focused Fandom: Fanart, Fanartists, and Careers.  The good news is my prototype print copies are in the mail, and I should get to look them over next week!

It wasn’t as easy as I thought – since I haven’t queued up a print book in about a year.  But frankly, I think I should have earlier.

As much as eBooks are a big thing, books like these are also gifts – and giving eBooks really isn’t quite the same.  I have to remember an audience is bigger than . . . the audience.

Also books that are physical leave a legacy.  It’s something people can keep, treasure, and remember.

Hang in there, if the review goes well then I just have one more test print to confirm it’s good, and we’re there . . .
