Dear Agony Aunt,
I spent 18 months of my life interviewing, photographing, writing, designing, laying out, producing (and having professionally printed in China), living and breathing a hard cover coffee table book. The first six months after the launch was great, okay, hard work. I did it all myself (aside from retaining the services of a professional editor) which I am immensely proud of. I have sold/gifted around 500 of 1000 books, which I hear is not bad, but it didn’t even pay for band aids and now my garage has become a sad and sorry graveyard. It’s a great book (if I do say so myself); I did hate it there for a while, but now I’m feeling sad for it and need to do something to move the last of the stock. Alas my post-production sales enthusiasm has dried up and I need help and inspiration on how I can relieve myself of the rest of my babies, so I can move onto a new book or project. Any advice that doesn’t involve matches and deranged laughter?
