I am working on the layout for the book and reading through the short stories. In the coming weeks, I will be sending out edited work for approval. Any corrections/additions or alterations suggested by the authors of the work will be made. After a final edit, the work will be sent out again for final approval. If everything goes well, the anthology should be published late September/early October.

This promises to be quite a book!

Sounds good. I do think you need to be listed as the editor since you're the one doing all of this work.

Some anthologies have 'Compiled By: --", instead of 'Editied By: --' , if you're really bothered by the Editor byline.

When do we get to see the new cover?

Shelagh, once the anthology is published, ISBN and all, should we participants anticipate infringement possiblities for displaying the cover on our personal websites? I'm assuming that since you designed the cover, you hold copyright to it instead of Lulu, so permission to use it may have to come from you.

Hi Jim,

THe cover can be displayed by anyone. If we are sued, I can't think of a better way of increasing sales! Very Happy

Shelagh mentioned in another post that she had gotten permission to use the image for a book cover. This usually includes promtional use as well, but it wouldn't hurt to check with the original owner first.

I don't see any prob with this, esp. if cover credit is given. I would like to post the cover also, when the book is ready, so everyone can see how terrific it is :-)

Great suggestion.

I think 'compiled by ...' has such a nice ring for an anthology.

Very Happy
