Yearly Publication Ideas

Last updated on 10 years ago

I had the idea of creating two small yearly publications. One in the form of a calendar, and one in the form of a book.

The idea for the calendar is to take 12 of the best poems chosen by the membership and publish one on each month of a yearly calendar.

The idea for the book is to take a compilation of the best stories as chosen by the membership.

Both these items can be printed and pruchased through CafePress which spawned the thought. A softcover spine novel is only about $10 US to buy once you create it.

Thoughts everyone?

I do question the story book. It's a good idea, but do you mean short stories? I mean, it'd be hard to fit ten books in a small paperback.

Bear this in mind. Cafe press charges a flat fee and the site would add to it. No one is going to pay more than 19.95 for a paperback. That limits us to 150 pages.($15 for CafePress and $4.95 for us). That's the maximum, I believe.

I don't know how many words go on a page there but it something to be considered.
