How do you want your book?
For those interested, I'm trying to figure out the best way for you all get get your books. For those of you that would like an actual printed book, I will be self-publishing by Blurb.

Pricing from Blurb: http://www.blurb.com/create/book/pricin ... d-portrait
I will be using the Standard Portrait sized book, for the 41-80 page range, in full color.
Costs with regular paper are $24.95USD, if you want premium paper, add $3.00.

I am not sure if you get to choose what paper you want if you buy straight from their site, so if you want a copy please vote with which you would prefer.

Since printing is so expensive, I would also like to make buying an electronic copy an option. Whether this will be an eBook, simply hosting the PDF somewhere, emailing it to you, I dunno. :? If I am going to charge a small fee for it I don't want people to just be sending it to everyone else, so I'm not sure. (the small fee would be to help cover the costs of some of the professional pictures I had taken, any additional proceeds would be sent to one or more hedgehog rescues of my choice.)

So please, let me know what you would prefer! I am hoping to have the book finished and have ordered a few copies for my vet and I by mid September, hopefully sooner.

*NOTE* I have decided that I would like to use the full 80 pages for the price they charge. Once I figure out how many are in use, I will be accepting pictures from whoever would like to have their hedgehog in the back of the book. There will be limited space and I will be taking pictures on a first come, first serve basis until the pages are filled. I will need a first and last name or initial to use your photos.

Re: How do you want your book?
I would love to have a copy of your book. Can I get one sent to Canada?

Also, Charlotte would love to be in your book :) she says that you can pick either of these pictures. Or if you want I can send different ones.


Please let me know how and when I can get a copy. Also, please PM me for any of my personal information if you require it.

I forgot to say that I want the one on premium paper if I have a choice. Otherwise
plain paper if that is the popular choice and it had to be all the same.

Re: How do you want your book?
I will see if I can have the book listed twice, with the two different papers, or make that an option. Blurb prints them separately, so I don't think that will be a problem. :)

Here is their shipping information, you can use the Shipping Calculator to get an estimate of what it would cost.

Re: How do you want your book?
I would love to buy a copy of your book. An e-book would be perfect as I can put it on my kindle. PDF files work well, especially with photos. I'm not 100% sure but I believe there is a way to lock a pdf file so that it can't be copied or printed. Let me know when you get everything set up.

Re: How do you want your book?
I would like the higher quality paper (slik) because it just look so nice and that would make a nice book.

Re: How do you want your book?
Thanks for the comments and support everyone :) I think I will have three options: two, for printing, I will have both the standard and the high quality paper available for purchase from Blurb, at the price I listed. That's the cost of the printing and otherwise the material is free. Then I will send the PDF for free, to anyone who requests it. It'll be a large file so I'll have to test and make sure my email will send it- otherwise I am sure Bryan could set me up a page on this site so you all could download it. I think this is a great way to make sure everyone is able to access it.

If anyone want to send me pictures of their hedgehog, I will use the remaining of the 80 pages in the book as a "hedgehog central members" section. You can email me the pictures to [email protected] , please remember to give a name to credit and let me know your username on the forums. I will make sure every member that sends in a picture will have a picture of their hedgie (or hedgies, I will take one of each).

Re: How do you want your book?
can we send you a bunch of pic and you chose or you want us to send only one picture?

Re: How do you want your book?
You can send as many as you like. I will use at least one. Also, please specify if you have two hogs that way I can use one of each. :)
