What is a fanbook, exactly? Simply put, it's a collection of messages, pictures, and any number of other things (gifts, etc.) put together by fans in order to be sent to a band. In short, it's one way to show your support for the band you love even if you can't go to their live shows and events.
How does this collective effort make it into one tidy little package? That's where I come in. As the organizer of this project, I will be taking submissions (for a yet-undetermined amount of time) both by e-mail and by traditional mail (I will give my actual mailing address only to those who have something ready to be sent) from anyone who wishes to give the band a greeting or gift. For the most part, all letters, drawings, photos, et cetera will be accepted unless deemed inappropriate.
You will be contacted if your submission does not meet the guidelines and offered a chance to change and resubmit it, within reason.
And by all means, go ahead and make more than one contribution! If you want to submit a drawing and a photo and a letter, please do! I'll do my best to place them together when the actual book is made. ^__^ I'm hoping to have at least a few hand-written (or hand-drawn) submissions (i.e. ones sent through the mail to my house). It's more personal that way, I think. I know I'm going to write mine out on paper for sure. ^^;
The guidelines will remain relatively ambiguous. Hopefully, that will allow you to be creative and not limit you much. One thing is for sure: there will be no maximum number of submissions per person, and letters may be as long as you like.
All of this does not mean that I won't accept submissions by e-mail, however. Use whichever method of submission you prefer. Just remember that my printer is somewhat old, so image quality is generally not very good. ^^; It might be better to print on your own if you have a digital image to include.
If it happens that shipping costs are an issue, I may offer to pay for it myself. I want everyone who is interested to be able to participate. ^__^
If you have any ideas or suggestions, please share them! This is not just for me, remember. ^_~
More information will be added with time, so please check back soon. Any questions can be addressed to me, anon_99. My contact info is listed in my profile, so there is no reason you shouldn't be able to reach me if you need to. The quickest method of getting in touch is generally leaving a comment on something I've posted or directly e-mailing me. I check my Yahoo! e-mail account several times a day, so I should see it.
I hope you will help me to make this project a success! ^__^
