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 . . .
