---

The “give away committee” thing is the idea that a person could back for six physical books and arrange for some of those to go to “the give away committee” - and find a good home for the books.  Possibly high school libraries, or maybe youth counsellors or ....  well I think it would be good to get a thread going to discuss all the possibilities.



Any other ideas?

How much would be the shipping costs to Madrid (Spain)




It will definitely be more expensive.  

We could just ship stuff from here, but that will probably add about $60 to the cost of shipping.  Ug.   On the other hand, for six books that are unsigned, it is possible that we could set up with a "print one book at a time" service in europe, and my quickie math says that that would add about $35 to the cost.  So still kinda nuts - but less nuts.

Hi, I'm the one who sent you the email.
Maybe there is an option to buy the books in a printer friendly format, so I can print with time in my printer.
I prefer paper books (sorry) and perhaps that would be an option.

Best regards
Manu

I'm not a graphic designer, but I do work in print as a prepress operator. If you need any help setting up print files, let me know (though, I'm sure you have all the help you need without my offering).

So you might be good at reviewing our layout stuff?

Question About Kickstarter: To pay the $5 in shipping, would one just donate a total of $20 or is there a different way to pay the shipping costs?

It is important that we don't use the word "donate" for a bunch of reasons - at the top of the list is that donation stuff is not allowed on kickstarter.   The idea is to buy a thing before it is ready to be bought.  

If you select the $15 reward, and you are in the US, if we get funded, you will part with $20.   $15 for the book and $5 for shipping ...  and the little box ... and the fondling of the box ....  and making sure we get the right label on the right box ....   etc.

Does this help paint a picture?

Tonya,

I have put your offer and info into our layout notes stuff.  If the kickstarter is a success and we go through with the layout to get the book printed I think you will hear from us!  :)

 
We should throw him a surprise party. It will cheer him up. We can use this tiny ad:
