I'm going to make this short and very sweet, and I'll follow-up with another formal post but I'm just sitting here holding my second copy of Aether fresh from the press, and I have to admit, I am really excited! This copy is incredible, and looking really, really good! A special thank you to all of the artists who took the extra time to resubmit work; It really pops!
So without further ado:
AETHER d'ANIMAUX VOLUME 1 IS OFFICIALLY READY!
For those of you looking to order (just in time for Anthrocon!), here's the link to Lulu.com:
Just a quick progress report regarding the publishing of [i]Aether[/i] through Lulu.com:
On Friday (March 5, 2010), I received an automated email from Lulu.com (the selected Print-On-Demand printer for [i]Aether[/i]) stating that the document PDF was failing to rip because of the size (1.96 gigs).
Lulu's press site says files must be below 2 gigs total. But after trying to produce the file, the email states it must be below 1.8 gigs. The email also states that I am not asked to do anything, as Lulu it sorting it out.
I have sent a follow-up email. I plan to follow-up again today.
Stay tuned! never a dull moment!
