Book on the 09/10 Conference Winning Side

By CometSport10/5 09:54Fri May 10 09:54:30 2019

Morning all,

After a lot of demand following Ronnie's testimonial and Lawire Wilson's piece in the Comet, I'm looking to put together a book on the Conference 09/10 side, with next season marking 10 years since that remarkable team got promoted. The book would cover the whole season, with memories from those involved.

Two questions...

1. Would people be interested and actually buy a book on this?

2. Considering printing costs, which will range from 700 quid to 1,000 quid depending on the number of copies, would Stevenage fans be willing to crowdfund the printing?

All proceeds would go to Cardiomyopathy UK in memory of Mitchell Cole

Anyone has any book printing experience or know someone who does let me know

What about funding/backing through something like Kickstarter? That way you would know you have raised the money to go ahead before you commit to the project. Stretch goals can be included for better quality paper, covers etc.

How would the crowdfunding thing work? We all pitch in a tenner, or whatever, beforehand and you go ahead if there's enough to make it happen? Then we get a copy once printed. If so, sounds good.

Hi there,

I run a book publishing company and would be pleased to help in any way I can. You won't print anything decent for a thousand quid, but it is a worthy subject and a worthy cause. My email address is jsellers@firststonepub.co.uk.

You haven't. But you will now. Strange sense of humour some folk.

If this project goes ahead I wouldn't want it done cheap, it needs to be a proper book. Not a weighty tome but a worthwhile read and keepsake.

I wasn't expecting Lord of the Flies.

Just a small book, like 50 pages*. More interested in the content that than the style.

I hate reading books and have never voluntarily read a book before so this would be my first one.

*although if you get Westley to put in a foreword it might double the size.

50 pages isn’t a book. It’s a copy of Razzle with all the adverts taken out.

You should do a whole chapter on the away game at Grays. A kind of reportage piece covering tension, alcohol, stewards and pitch invasions. The four fans involved could be interviewed with false names.

Yes, can do that for free. Probably looking at printing between 200-300 copies, maybe doing a signing session with some of the players and then do the rest via Kindle

The great thing with that era, you wouldn't need to ask twice for pieces from the players. They'd give you all the help you wanted!

Ditto to the above. I’d be happy to give my time researching etc.

Would it be worth approaching a local company like Streets to help with printing? I’m not sure if they do books per se but I’m sure they’d give advice.
