Hello, It's Barry. I'm meeting with the publisher today at 2:00. This is the third and I hope, last time I meet with him. He's going to print me a proof of the book, and then were in business after I ok it. I'm pretty excited!

I need you folks to help me make a decision. It has 311 pages, and there are over 200 color photos of both head badges and bicycles. Printing all the color photos is the expensive part. If I stay with 311 pages, I'll have to sell the book for about $40.00. Is this to much? Should I stick with 311 pages or take even more companies out in order to drop the price of the book?

The book was about 700 pages when I finished it, I had to take about 50 companies out to decrease it to 311 pages. Because of this, I already have a second volume nearly ready to go. Ha Ha Ha.

Thanks! Barry

I hope the 50 you took out were the more common names... obscure name are way more interesting.

The book has 311 pages of which 211 are color and 100 are black. Some of the pages have more than one color photo. I received the estimate about 5 minutes ago and then made another appointment for this coming Thursday. Yahoo!
