Not too long ago, we advertised the idea that we'd be putting out a LoAP book. Well, the pages for the book are officially completed now. There's still some steps to take to finish it off, though. So, I thought I'd advertise it by showing off the cover, which we're also using for the website now. This is specifically the website version, and not the book version (book version lists the book number).

I've been looking at pricing, and it looks like printing this will be roughly about $25 or so. I'm looking into ways to advertise it along with raise money for printing. We have to raise about $500 to get the first printing done, and that only covers about 25 or so books. So we need at least that many pre-orders.

So, how can you guys help?
1. Recommend me ways of publishing the book. I've looked at Lulu.com and a few other minor sites, but I'd like some more options to look at.
2. Recommend me a crowd-funding option. I'm looking at Kickstarter, but Kickstarter also costs a fee. So we'd have to make a certain amount just to cover that fee, along with the amount to publish the book itself.
3. Pre-order the book. Seriously, this is the best thing you can do. Get in contact with me about ways to buy the book and pre-order it, cause without that money, we can't do anything at all.
4. Advertise to your friends. Help us get more people interested in the book by advertising it to your friends.

I'd go with...

I'd go with kickstarter. Yes, they charge a fee, but they also have a wider audience.

Rather than going for a minimal printing, expand your goals a bit and you'll probably meet them as long as your pricing structure is reasonable.
