Thank you, now I just need to find a way to make a living at this...

Didn't POTN, or it's followers, request a photo book? That would maybe be a start.

Straightening...lol. Every time I straighten the horizon, I hang the picture crooked.

I downloaded the blurb software... and I'm dropping photos into a book layout. The problem is, everything great I've got planned and will do in the future won't be in the book. I guess I will need a sequel...

I've got an idea for my 2nd anniversary of Ducky in the City... I will be shooing an off road race next weekend and Jessie James is looking for a team to drive for, possibly at this race. I might just have to get a picture of Jessie James posing with the ducky... If he isn't there I might have to get Jeremy McGrath and/or Cary Hart to pose with our little yellow friend...

I think this is the point. Smaller books in some form of series format. Diary of a Wimpy Kid type stuff. If the demand calls for it, Ducky keeps going on advnetures. If not, oh well.

If you waited for yourself to complete Ducky's adventures, you may wait a long time. And, you may miss a lot of new people that would enter the Ducky sagas that aren't members of POTN. IDK, just trying to keep the brain juices moving forward......for Ducky's sake. It's a great idea that could be added to any picture for any reason.

The problem I am having right now is I have almost 400 ducky photos to fit in a book...

So split it into 2 or more and get a head start on a series of books.....Just a thought. :)

No you have 400 photos to fit into book_s_. I think it would be difficult to tell a story with 400 photos in 1 book. Try the Lord of the rings method (and no not the 12 years to write it)- where the book was written a 1 big one, but when published broken up into 3 as the publishers were concerned about about book size / marketing such a huge book.

Also gives the chance if it takes off later to sell the combined omnibus editions to collectors/people who want to catch up on Duckys' adventures.
