2. What is the price point?

At this point we don't know how much the book will retail for because we don't know how many artists will be in the book - we don't know how thick it will be. As soon as we know the retail price we will post it.

3. How many do you expect to print?

For this first arts annual the book will be printed by my our POD printer. the first print run will be about 200 copies with fallowup print runs as they are needed. Authors can order as many or as few extra copies as they like at a 40% discount. Printing POD is wonderful, we can order as few as one book - amazing.

4. Do you expect to put them in all the Northumberland Public Libraries?

Our expectation is that the book will be placed in more than just Northumberland libraries. Our distributor is Ingram. They have an international distribution method. We also serve many Library Service Companies.
