I am putting this poll here to gauge interest!

Are you interested in a Wind Tunnel Dreams 2007-2011 ebook?

Yes.
36(70.6%)
Maybe.
15(29.4%)


Over 500 pages, woo.

I would not be selling this on Amazon because Reasons; I am too tired and cranky to write a long post right now! But before I pull the trigger on giving poor scifantasy so much work to do, I figured I should see if more than like 3 people actually want this.

Would this be the same as the print book?

It would have about 9K more words... two more years' worth of WTD.

OK! Now I can answer the poll :-)

As long as it's available in DRM-free ePub format, definitely.

It would definitely be DRM-free!

I got Rachel a Nook Tablet last Xmas, but whenever I pick the thing up, I end up playing video games.

If you plan to do a print edition, I'd be much more interested in that.

Unfortunately, that would take a lot of money, which would defeat the purpose!

In that case, I'll probably buy the e-book, if it's the only form available, once I get my finances in order again.

Have you considered submitting it to a small-press publisher?

The problem is this: The WTD stuff isn't up to my standards. That's why I won't offer it on Amazon - I think it only works if you have the context, if you know it was an experimental LJ thing. Very few of these are things I'd send out into the world with my name attached for people who don't know me to see. That's why I'm resentful of and resistant to the idea of offering it as an ebook at all - this isn't my A-game, and I don't want anything out there that isn't. But I'm stuck because of this damn cat.

So no, definitely not submitting it to a publisher; the very thought of non-LJ-friends reading this makes me curl up into a fetal position on the couch. Seriously, that's how I spent yesterday.

Ah. Got it. An art professor I knew at Earlham used to say, "The most important thing a potter does is destroy pots."

Yes, but I'm still in a situation where cost matters. Having a .mobi would be easiest for me, but I can even read .pdf's.
