Oldman,

As the proud owner of one of your original pieces of work (gifted to me via one of your infamous F.A.com contests), I need to say "sign me up for one copy, please!"

As a designer I have found that less can be more. Words or no words if I learn something and enjoy it then its worth my money. Are you going to sell signed copies?

Oldman: Don't know if you considered this and you probably already know about it, but apparently www.lulu.com (I'm not associated with it) is a great place to self-publish. My friend is writing a comedy/commentary styled book and is going through them. Apparently for awhile now, they are offering the ability to purchase an ISBN number and they handle the distribution to Amazon.Com, Barnes & Nobles, Borders, and any book store that buys their books from the massive wholesaler, Ingrams. I've signed up for an account for test purposes, and it seems a bit easy. Make a .pdf of the book, upload cover art and you're good to go!

Good luck and can't wait to get a look at the book.

EDIT: By the way, it's completely free. Lulu takes a commission out of the sale price that's actually not too bad.

Oldman,

Have you ever seen a book called "Kung Fu for Girls"?
http://www.quirkbooks.com/Book.aspx?BID=157
This is most likely WAY different than what you are going for, but I reccommend it as something to look at. It is a selection of situations and techniques that apply specifically to the young urban female, and is told through some great illustrations. It gives very basic SD instructions, usually glaringly obvious, such as what to do if a strange man on the train sits down next to you and grabs your thigh (grab the offending hand and bust him in the jaw) etc.
Like I said, I'm sure the content is much different than what you're working on, but the format is there and I honestly think it's much more effective, comprehensive and attractive than a complicated MA book.
Maybe give it a look if you get the chance.

And I'll def read your book when it comes out

Thats pretty cool. FightingArts also does some publishing. Id like to have the time to write. I wish you the Best of luck Mark, and look forward to seeing the final draft.
