The Trials and Tribulations of Georg and Lulu · 3:15am Mar 7th, 2019

For those of you who don't know, Lulu is the self-publishing company that many of us are doing our Bronycon Bookstore books on. It's a bit arcane with some fiddley bits, which I'll whine about below the break (with a sneak peek at drafts of the printed version)

Printed copies of TOWGA = 1 · 4:11am Mar 22nd, 2019

Got back my ‘proof’ copy of The One Who Got Away/Drifting Down the Lazy River today, opened it up to great excitement… Then saw the first typo. And the second. And third. And the page numbers are *all* on the right side (instead of r/l/r/l) And I’m still not quite sure if the ‘gutter’ is in the center or the edge of the paper. And… Well, that’s about it, really. I’m sure JK Rowling thought much the same when she unpacked her first copy of Harry Potter (only with far less money involved

Man, I really shouldn't have locked myself into such an awkward title theme for blogs about the Bookstore. Bit late now, I suppose.

Bronycon Bookstore - River is Coming · 9:57pm Mar 16th, 2019

Ordered my proof copy to see just how my formatting looks on The One Who Got Away/Drifting Down the Lazy River. So in about 2 weeks, I'll know roughly where I stand and what I need to go back and fix in the Word primary document. (and I fixed *two* typos while making this last pass.) So we're getting there. If you're interested, the Lulu final file I submitted is here on my Google Drive. I managed

Working on Sisters for the Bronycon Bookstore - No April Fooling · 5:31am Apr 1st, 2019

If there is anything that makes me regret using so many footnotes, it is putting together a dozen plus of my stories for printing. FYI: This will be the third book I plan on bringing, provided my sanity lasts that long. Many thanks to katiepox at DeviantArt for allowing me to use her 'Sisters' for the cover art (below), to Bad Horse who allowed me to use two of his short stories, and to about a thousand editors who helped sort out the collection

Hearts and Hooves and Georg’s Self-Promotion · 3:20am Feb 15th, 2019

In honor of this day, I got the wife a small box of chocolates, I’m getting you some shameless self-promoting story plugs, and I got myself some needed time working on cleaning up my older stories. Oh, and Iisaw put together a cover for my Bronycon Bookstore double-story entry, which I’m listing next:

Season 9 starts soon - Should I publish my pending pile then? · 4:36am Feb 25th, 2019

Ok, I’ve got a question: Since readership peaks during the episode airing period, should I go ahead and publish my incomplete stories when Season 9 starts to air? I did this a couple of years back and called it March Madness, putting out a chapter a day for a whole month. Normally, I hold off until the whole story is complete and edited to a fine gloss, but some of this stuff will take another year to get wrapped up, if then. Here’s what I have:

The Monster Project is now officially complete. I have received my proof copies (hardback and paperback) of Monster in the Twilight, and Letters From a Little Princess Monster, looked them over, and think they’re about as good as its going to get from my ten thumbs. I also received my copy of Tales of the Sun from Ministry of Image which has In Celestia We

Everfree Northwest 2019 and book sales 5/8/2019 · 11:59pm May 8th, 2019

Getting things all set up for my trip to Everfree Northwest next week while working on my Bronycon Bookstore books, and I got to wondering. Will anybody be at EFNW who can’t make it to Bronycon, who also wants a copy of one of the three books (thanks to Iisaw) that I’ve got set up? I think I can wedge 12 copies into my airline luggage and still have underwear space, which would be about 4 copies of each. (cont.)

Bronycon Bookstore - Georg will be there Thursday · 2:34am Aug 1st, 2019

Made it to Hershey Pennsylvania today, so I’m about two hours out of Baltimore. Depending on where the wife makes me drive on the way there, I should be… noon? Then badge, and books to the bookstore, and figuring out where everything is… So looking forward to this.

Lies, Darned lies, and Bronycon Bookstore publication · 5:14am Mar 6th, 2019

Ok, I’ve got a couple of questions for the Bronycon Bookstore setup, and the One Who Got Away/Drifting Down the Lazy River book I’m putting together for it.

First, should I use a real picture of myself or find something on the internet like a computer-generated face? Because I’ve got a face that was made for radio, and a voice destined for print media.

Bronycon Bookstore - So You Want To Print A Book But Have Questions · 5:08pm Jun 4th, 2019

That’s ok. I have questions too, and I’ve been through the process several times now. Anyway, I got a question by email, and rather than send a response to *one* person, I thought I’d blog it and let everybody see how screwed-up I made the process… I mean what is involved in the technical process of making your own paper book copy.
