Well, this is been a long time coming and follows MANY discussions on our Facebook group. But we think we're finally ready to start.
Some of you who have been part of those discussions over the last year, will wonder why the idea has shaped up this way. Honestly, our answer to that is that we decided to grab the bull by the horns and get something working. There were so many pieces to fit into the planning that it was starting to get a bit out of hand. We wanted to simplify things so that we could finally get the ball rolling.
More than anything we're planning for this to be a shakedown of the concept and to make sure all the components fit together. We expect things will change a little bit as we go along, but by launching the Co-Op this way, we can incorporate what works, and what doesn't, gets chucked.
After a trial run of eight or ten Cons we should have the details worked out, and then we're hoping to turn the idea loose and provide only the support necessary to keep it organized. Eventually we'd like to see five or six group tables like what we're creating here operating across the country.
We're very open to ideas and suggestions, and I hope many of you will choose to get involved so that we can get your books out there to a much wider audience.
Feel free to leave comments, or to ask questions here or on the group.
You can also sign up to participate starting ... now.
Thanks for all the support and encouragement, and we hope to see you at your favorite Con soon.
