It´s a lot of work. I have written instruction books (and even published one in 2006) since I learned to write.
I think it is a nice idea, although we do not have much clientel. All the information we have to share, is on this forum. Do we really want to compete with ourselves?
Also creating real-life books (printing etc) costs money.
Who would sponsor that? You know we need to have couple of books ready to mail before any orders.
Or were you thinking you just print a book to your customer with your table-top printer and send it to him in an envelope? THAT is freakingly expensive ink and paperwise. It also means you have to knit/staple/glue/whatever the book yourself by hand.
And if you even hope we would sell 100 copies of the book... imagine printing 100 copies of the thing with your printer, knitting it together as book, gluing covers to it and then licking 100 stamps and delivering the books to a post office....
I am sorry to rain on your parade, but I edited my book 4 months after the 8 months it took to write (9 hours a day/6 days a week), to make sure all details were correct. If I am taking part making our book, this is the commitment I know it asks, and I am not sure if I have the time for it. Anything less would be blasphemy XD
