Risks and challenges

The book is still at the editing phase, and the funding required will allow me to finish the editing as well as initiate the publishing of 500 colour books that will be available in April of 2017.
Some issues I may face is copyright issues with some photographs I wish to use.
The cost of the actual printing of the books will change as markets fluctuate, the cost that is listed is based on current markets. I do have additional funding possibilities if the publishing costs change significantly to protect us against this.
I may end up needing more than 500 books-and for that I will apologize now. When they are gone, they are gone. Printing of books works at increments of 500, I am not willing to print a second time unless I see a commitment for 500 more.
