    Okay, I just saw your ad after a few rotations. How about including your name in the ad? I know you are trying to be modest, neutral, and scientific, but I suspect some people might see "Photographic Emulsion Making, Coating and Testing" and say "Oh, that sounds really interesting, but I think I'll wait for Ron's book to come out."

    Ok, well, IDK how to put this, so here goes!

    Sean designed the ad! And, there is only so much that can go in that thumbnail, so I guess he was not wrong.

    Also, I okayed it, so my bad!

    Can you also put the link in your signature of your post? Just a suggestion. BTW, loved the podcast the other day.

    Actually, this is what I would suggest, but I wanted to run it by the other moderators first to be sure we have a consensus in favor, and we do, so please, go ahead and add a link to your signature. We're usually okay with people promoting their own books, workshops, and exhibitions this way, since it tends to be fairly low key.

    Well, there's probably a reason why the Marketing guys don't usually get invited to the meetings in the IT and Engineering departments, and the IT and Engineering guys don't usually get invited to the meetings in the Marketing department.

    It has been suggested that I am trying to "force" the Kodak method on the emulsion making community.

    We would be very lucky indeed to actually have Kodak's methods taught to us.

    As a signature? Sure, if it fits, or even better, I'd just link "fotoimpex" and "photo formulary.

    I think that changing your signature Ron is a great idea. That will retroactively change all your posts (ever) to have that signature.

    Marketing is so important and I'll 2nd that so far, your book remains somewhat on the DL (down-low for all those over 30... ).

    This might be a long-shot, but how often does a book on Emulsion making come out?? Imagine if the Brit. J. of Phot. did a story on it. Have you considered a "press-release" of sorts?, as silly as that may sound.

    PF doesn't even say the name of the author. Wow. The description is just the table of contents, which is really not the space or place to present this. This is where the sell should be happening. I'd be more than happy to draft something up if you're interested.

    I want the ball to start rolling for this book, and I think we need to start kicking it around!

    A little bit more information with a real photograph at the ads would not hurt anyone and may be an bikini woman with a glass rod in her hand
    Saying I love glass rods especially Rons )
