Thanks to these folks the contributions I am at 10% of the necessary goal to get the books published.
It’s been a tough decision on making the final details on the layout, style, and format of the book. At the beginning, I really wanted to produce a huge hard covered coffee table book, but to produce copies with such a small production would have been rather expensive. Instead, I set a price that feel is fair and reflective of similar books.
The final book will be 8×10, soft covered, with full colour images, and up to 65 pages or more. The final page count is yet to be determined as I’m still laying out the design. There will be twelve dogs in total gracing the pages, along with their tales as to how they see their lives.
The final book is $49.95 Canadian, not including taxes or shipping. For those who want to secure a book, pre-ordering is offered with a non-refundable deposit of $25. The balance is due 15 days after the release of the book.
Nearing the end of the sessions
I am down to two final sessions and all the photos will be completed. Initially, there were two sessions for each dog, but with time constraints it will not be possible. I am returning back to school in September which will take up most of my available spare time. There is still plenty of work to be done on the book. A bonus is that if I can get everything in order the book may be available in time for Christmas holiday giving.
