Thanks for all the great response on the book. That was the best response on the website since who knows when and it totally made my weekend. Feeding off the positive energy I was able to complete work on the cover for the Vermont Monster Guide (which I’ll post soon as I get the ok from the publisher) and work some more on that Magic Inkwell Reader cover (worked on a back cover illo and correcting some design stuff… thanks for the advice/suggestions everyone):

I’ve done most of my scanning and working on finishing up the book this week. To answer some questions, this book will be P.O.D. for this first run. It’s really the most logical way to put out the book because I can put out a quality product that anyone online can order and I’ll make a modest profit which will definitely help me out right now. I’m leaning heavily in the direction of one particular online P.O.D. service but would love suggestions/ideas from anyone that’s had more experience with this sort of thing. The book will be retail $10 (plus whatever shipping and handling is when you buy the book online). I’ll be buying copies to sell at cons, etc. as signed editions for the same price) and the page count right now is sitting at 64 pages and will be quite a nice little package. I’m getting excited!
