    I had an interesting idea today while thinking of writing contests from the past. It is absurdly easy for me to self publish books. I can do it for free, and I know there are other writers on the server. It would be very easy for me to take a collection of stories written by the community and, with the help of someone who can use Photoshop or a similar program, make a physical book out of it. It could be sold on the website, to the community, probably for less than $10. I could set it up so all proceeds go to the server. It wouldn't be much. But it could be a fun project.

    How I'd suggest going about it:
    Put out a call for writing along a certain guideline, with a due date.
    • Writing must be related to Imdeity, whether about a character, an event, or even just about your time here. Past submissions could be used.
    • Writing must be first or third person; I/ He/ She/ We
    • 1000 words or less. Perhaps fewer.
    • Month long submission period
    The publishing process
    • Stories could be edited by the writer, myself, or server staff.
    • I can collate and format them into a document ready to be submitted to the publishing site
    • Someone with image editing skills can design a simple (or not) cover within the set dimensions. This is the trickiest part in my experience.
    • I submit all the files to Lulu.com, the site I use for publishing.
    • I'd have to have a conversation with the staff and/or deity himself about that process so I could set him up as the owner of the book.
    Let me know what you think! I could even turn the server rules/ guide into a book this way.

    This is awesome I would like to write a book. My Guide line would be what I was when I joined to now. Thought it could be funny. Because I was a noob. Third person because I have talked to the person that helped me get around and I know that side of the story.

    Oh and the writer should probably get like a 2%. Money used towers buying stuff from server.

    Like I want the 200 dollar rank and I will have to write a bunch of books

    No, I hadn't seen that page! I knew all the contest submissions were somewhere theoretically. I'll have to check out some of the others.

    If you have any suggestions for ImDeity Tales, you can always send them to me as suggested in our Wiki. Do not worry, entries that will be published, will be rewarded. ;)

    If you ever want to make a book out of it, let me know, because InDesign should be used rather than Photoshop for the inner lay-out of the book. ;)
