Morag, if you could let us know in this thread what you would like do by the end of the month, that would be awesome.

Ok, so. Regarding a POD place, CreateSpace is fairly easy to manage. I've done it before when I did the 3rd edition of Bellica. There will be some upfront costs, because you'll need to get a proof done to make sure everything works out (it's not enough to check this on their digital proofer).

Lulu is also fairly easy to manage, but I don't know how their quality compares.

Are there going to be full-color pieces of artwork in the book? That's something we need to keep in mind (as printing a book with color insides will cost more).

Things that should be done by the end of this month:

-figuring out what imprint we're going with. One of the ones I suggested, or create a new one?
-figuring out ISBN stuff. Buying one from Bowker is an option, but it's really expensive. Better options: using a Createspace-assigned ISBN if we go with CreateSpace, or I can get one from my CISS account (the Canadian ISBN Service System). A CISS ISBN is free. Here's a page about using different ISBNs with CreateSpace.
-decide if there'll be an ebook as well as a print book.
-hammer out some deadlines.
-find some cover art.

I think that's good for this month. Regarding formatting, do any of the templates here interest y'all? I've been thinking of picking some of those up for my publishing company, or at least doing an affiliate type deal with the site. So if one really screams 'devotional material', let me know.


I'm away till Tuesday, but I can read forums and my email (katjevanloon at gmail dot com) from my phone and iPad. ETA: I can respond to email easier than I can to the forums, so best to contact me that way if a response is required.

Morag, thanks so much for this!  I've got this copied and pasted into my own notes for deeper perusal, but off the top of my head, I know that there will be a couple of threads to go up for the Cill to vote on, namely the things that cost money and which imprint and which printer we want to use.  Those will get up sometime after the end of the month (I haven't forgotten our volunteer researchers!) when we can come back together with a bit more info.

This is just a general update from my end:

I've read nearly all of our submissions -- one very long one still needs to be read -- but that's been put on hold because I apparently came down with something that walked, talked, and quacked an awful lot like the flu (in June. I know. :stop:) this past Sunday and I'm still pretty out of it, though recovering well. Additionally, I am house-sitting sans laptop until next Friday, so little will be done in the next week or so.

I'd like to be able to check in with our researchers, start a couple of threads on choosing our imprint and how to buy an ISBN somewhere in the middle of June. :)

I've read all the submissions, too, so I'm ready to be put to work whenever you're ready.

Feel better!

I have dropped the ball. I know.

Thorsvin and rocquelaire, any updates?
