IOTF Illustrators could put their art on Amazon WOTF's

Postby soulmirror » Thu Apr 18, 2013 3:56 pm

On the new WOTF #29, for instance? It helps sell the book (everyone benefits there, writers and illustrators both!)

Show potential readers and buyers that the WOTF is hat rare and beautiful gem, these days: the ILLUSTRATED book! :)

See how purty WOTF #28 is (but more Illustrators need to add their art!) ???

See how purty WOTF #27 be (but more illustrators need to add their art) !!!

Oh, alas, [b]WOTF #26, 25, 24, 23 ... wouldst the buyer/reader/fan see or expect any of your visual IOTF joys that await them there inside?[/b]

No, alas, not.

Anyway, sharing your IOTF-winning art helps promote both your careerand everyone's shared anthology!

It's easy to upload your IOTF-winning art as "customer images" onto your year's anthology!

You might share the idea with your IOTF illustrator friends (many of whom may not often visit our forum) ...

Thanks, Tina! And again -- Congratulations!

ETA: You might share this with them too: The IOTF 25th Anniversary book and website ...

I think at one point I figured that IOTF #29 winners would fall inside the 25 Years window (but I've also been confused on contest dates before, so ...?)

Anyway, thanks!

I think someone at the event announced that next year marked the 25th anniversary for Illustrators. So your figuring seems to be correct.

Thanks for the info! Good, that's great to know!

So ... every IOTF winner needs to get their art submitted to the 25th Anniversary Book website!

http://iof25.com/

When you submit art to your on-line portfolio, it asks you whether you want that art considered to be in the book (I think you can submit MANY illustrations / artwork ... but choose up to six for consideration for the book?)

As we've said before, the 25 Years WRITERS book came out a while back, and it's wonderful! So here's ILLUSTRATORS' chance! :)

There's a contact link to ask any questions about it there too.

Well, it seems the geniuses (sarcasm) / idiots (idiots) at Amazon have decided to remove the "customer images" tool ... one of the greatest marketing tools ever created.

So now very few readers / Amazon buyers will understand the WOTF is one of those rare great genre things: ILLUSTRATED fiction.

Createspace writers and illustrators are crippled in having that illustrative advantage in showcasing and selling their/our art.

If anyone's inclined to send Amazon letters of protest ... or organize a boycott in protest to bring those f@#kers back to their senses and restore customer images ... PLEASE DO.

Please go here ^ and express your desire that the "customer images" tool can be RESTORED to help Writers and Illustrators SELL our books, products, etc!

Thank you! wotf007
