4. Discuss word count cost.
Lorraine obtained pricing for the book which was emailed to all members previously. It was decided that the story would be no more than 10,000 words in total.

This means that you can have either one story of up to 10,000 words or two stories combined to make up to 10,000 words.

Members decided that 200 hundred books were required. Lorraine will get a quote for 200 hundred books and advise us of the pricing at the next meeting.

5. Any other issues
Idea shared at meeting- a member(s) of the One Book Many Brisbanes project management team to endorse anthology.

• Submit 2nd draft All drafts must conform to the supplied style sheet and formatting rules.
• Discuss pricing based on 200 books.
