Friends & Poets,

I have the itch to publish a 50 to 75 page book of my published and selected haiku (and possibly tanka) from the past two years. I think it would cost me about $100 to publish with at least fifteen copies. I would like to know who would be interested in purchasing the copy? I would probably sell the book for about $7. Anyway, if nobody seems interested, I would probably still publish. I’m just looking for support.

Thanks,
Dustin Neal

I'd buy a copy. Would you consider letting me pick a few of my favorites from your blog for the book (I'd still buy if you say no. :-)?

P.S. Are you still interested in doing a Rengay together?

Me too! Only problem is how to send some money over there?

Finnish bankers take 20 USD to send 7 USD for you?

I just printed my summer-poems in Finnish here, 100 copies was 400 Euros (abt 500 USD). 65 pages, paperpack. Last year we did a collection of Ogura Hyakunin Isshu in Finnish, abt 120 pages, 400 copies, some 4 USD each...

I agree with the lulu idea, you can do it for free and people can order form the site, and lulu pays you. I would be a lot less hasssle in the long run. Or, if you spend a few bucks you can get your book liste don Amazon. com, and who knows?

Sorry it's me again here, Mr Dustin!

I found your book in Lulu.com!
Ordered one; my Visa worked OK.

Today I wrote a short information from your Never Seeing Fuji, in Finnish, in my Finnish pages:

(I borrowed some of your poems, and translated those in Finnish.)
