last chance saloon  

Although the intarwebs have clearly got an opinion already, I figured I’d mention one more time: I’m running a poll as to which photo set I should submit to an exhibition. Submission deadline’s Thursday, so this will be the last time I have time to collect opinions. As if there was a question as to which set you all think I should submit. :) (thank you, btw, to whomever voted for the flowers: I have the impression you felt sorry for them, the poor lil’ neglected things. :) But I didn’t figure they’d be a top vote-getter: they’re pretty, but not…atmospheric, I guess.)

thinks to do today:
- upload Chance #1 for the Dabels
- go to the gym
- write 2K on TPC
- print out HoF & revision letter
- clean the kitchen
- make bread
- do laundry
- write CEMurphy.net newsletter
- post TQB excerpt

thinks to do this week:
- go to the photo shop to:
» get graveyard photo set printed
» ask where I can buy photo sleeves, backers & mailers in bulk
- HoF revisions

Hm. While I’m after getting the 5×7 photo sets printed, should I be looking at getting, say, 8×12s of some of them printed as well? Not, presumably, to buy as a set, but again in comments people’ve expressed interest in individual prints. Not sure what price point to sell 8×12s at, either. $30, including S&H? (Perhaps I should be running another poll…)

Ok, this is very much like procrastinating at this point, so I will go break fast and then work. *trundles off*

I am not sure exactly what is involved but you might look into offering your pictures at www.cafepress.com

I believe it is easy to use and they take care of making all the prints and such for you.

Re: Pictures
I think if I started offering larger prints I would definitely go with CafePress or somebody like them. One of the reasons to do it myself, though, is the conversion rate; if I price CafePress stuff high enough to actually make any money myself, I don't think anybody'd buy the photos! :)

Out of curiosity, what size was the photo you enclosed with the copy of HoS?

(Which was received with gratitude, and read in one long session, finishing at nearly 2 am. the book, that is. When is the final volume out? September? *sob*!)

*laughs out loud* Yay for staying up all night reading! :) Yeah, the 3rd book is out in September. Aren't you glad I've got another series starting in May to tide you over? :)

The photo is 4x6, so the graveyard set I'm proposing would be just a little bigger than that.

Okay, completely off topic, but Amazon has borked up your new book:


The reviews showing are for Susan KRINARD not 'House of Cards'.

*shakes fist at amazon*

Dunno if you want to say something to them... :)

My editor was informed a while ago and they're doing what they can. Thanks. :)
