Ever Written A Book?
General query here, as I'd like to pick your brains. Our MG group has been publishing an East Texas Calendar & Gardening Guide for about 7 years now. Besides the calendar grid we give folks month-by-month lists of things to do, gardening projects & several pages of more detailed infomation on such topics as growing roses, invasive plants, composting, etc.
While the calendar has been a very succesful project for us,we're now thinking about writing a book on gardening in East Texas. Thisw would be in a format much like cookbooks that many groups put together for fund raisers. Basically a 5 X 7" size bound with a plastic spiral binding.
If any of your groups have attempted such a project, I'd like to pick your brains for ideas and practical information on printing costs & the types of distribution you have used to sell the final finished product.
We are just in the beginning stages of thinking about this, so any thoughts you have would be most appreciated.
