After a respectful pause to see if Dare or Pagan changed their mind, I happily announce that I'm reclaiming my idea. :D

Outlaw Press will be an imprint for my work, interesting freedom-related public domain reprints, and a welcome home to any TMM writer who'd like to publish under a united front. I'll use either lulu or wordclay for POD services, and any writer who is published will have their own account for revenue purposes.

My main question, I suppose, is if it would be ok for me to use the wolf logo? It was used on the SYMBOLS FLOW title page and never fails to make me smile proudly.

Claire? Would ya mind?

I have not changed my mind.  Life happens... and right now I have to much stuff going on to even think about OT.  Hell, I want to find time somewhere for my own writing that I have been neglecting for years.

Good luck and best wishes with it.

Go for it, George. I’d be very happy to see the name and/or logo put to freedom’s use; that’s where it belongs!

If there’s any way I can help, please email me.

Well, if you're interested I've got four novels looking for an imprint.

Cool. :) Right now I'm doing some research on the relative merits of lulu vs. wordclay: base price, binding fee and (most importantly) shipping and handling costs. I've been happy with lulu on everything except shipping and handling.

I'll keep you posted, bro. :)

OK, after some research I have decided to stick with Lulu. wordclay's s&h was a tiny bit cheaper, but they offered far less options in design, cover art and binding. Also, I am absolutely thrilled with how my book turned out (and THANK YOU once again to Pagan & Dare for their superb work!).

Joel -- I have my brother working on a 'special edition' cover for Songs. I'll send you a jpeg as soon as he's finished messing with it. In simple description:

A man and two children sit by a fire. The man is obviously telling a story. The children are rapt, listening. The flame and smoke rise from the fire and in them is the image of a man with his back turned to the viewer -- in t-shirt, jeans, sunglasses and a ballcap. Strapped to his back is a shotgun. On his hip is a holdtered pistol. His right hand is raised in defiance.

Sound interesting? :D

Christ in a cattle car, that's a lot better than the cover pic I've been carrying around in my mind for a year.  Do you have access to anyone who could draw it?  Or are we talking Photoshop?

It'll be drawn in pencil, 'inked' and colored and manipulated in PaintShop Pro or GIMP.

I'll keep you up to date. My brother draws slowly.

One of our former TCFers (and a good friend of mine) has a print shop. She did the Gadsden Girl posters for me last year. I'd be glad to put anybody in touch with her.

And George, my brother, by all means use that logo and publish away!

Technically I don't think it's an Outlaw Trail book, but Symbols Flow did get Lulu-published and is still available.  Great stuff, too.
