Update on Printers (with assist from Gavin Grant)
Gavin Grant is a contributor to the Pick Your Battle project, an editor at Small Beer Books, and a fiction writer. He emailed the following response to my recent update:
If you can finish the book, edit it, get it copyedited and printed in 30 days, that would be awesome. I find printers (unless I'm using Bookmobile.com—nice price quote software on there once you are logged in) or a local copy shop for galleys, most printers are more like a month. I usually use Thomson-Shore for books as the price and quality are good—but speed isn't their thing.
So I checked out Bookmobile and the price quoted wasn't bad. My plan for now is to push ahead on all the stuff I can directly control, and see how long the stuff I can't control (like how long my printer takes) works out. If I run into serious snags I'll let you all know through this here Kickstarter updater dodad.
