Progress has come on thick and fast with lots of outstanding articles submitted. It's just me text-wise who needs to finish some stuff and then a few images and it is done!
My current plan is to get the cover professionally printed and do the inner pages myself as that gives me a bit more control over deadlines etc and stuff going horribly wrong. Does that sound a terrible idea?
Are there any volunteers for proofreading it as well?
It looks like my printer will conk out at about 100 copies. Do you think that will be enough, especially given it is going to be free? Maybe we can give it away with purchases of £20+ in order to encourage sales?
I dunno what the expected attendance is, but you could try that. Or ask Nick how many transactions he expects to make and then say free copy with every purchase? Free zine with every Rock Lord bought? If you're putting it online you could include downloads in the readership figures.
I feel like you will all be very happy with what I've been doing!
(Also Rock Lords related stuff, zing!)
The only main issue I have now is printing the cover. Should I do it just one-sided and thus be cheaper, or double-sided and scrabble for stuff to put on the other side? the plus of having the inside white is I guess people could sign it there
