You got that right man! Besides life, family responsibilities, etc. I'll get it done by next month anyway. Then on to what copyrights I need that are still left...

I gained something interesting out of taking my son to job #2 by 11AM. Yet again, rt 254 was bogged down by a sandbagger dragging down a big line of cars, us included. So I go off on the usual rant, but this time said, " Here we go, tippy tippy tappy on the brake pedal! blah blah, yada yada...". It then hit me that, " Hey! that'd be a good title for a book on home brewing!" I say to my son. And so it started, a couple hours ago, that book number three has begun. " Tippy Tippy Tappy- A Journey Through Home Brewing". Even my wife smiled & her eyes lit up when I told her the story & showed her the title page. GOOOAAAL! I know it sounds reminiscent of Rudyard Kipling's Rikki Tikki tavi & it's likely bouncin' around up there someplace. I have read the book ages ago now. Funny how an idea can start. I thought, tipping a glass after tapping a beer. Cool. My journey through this happy madness will be in book form. Not sure when it'll be done, as I have nearly completed the re-write of book one of my Time Lords 2034 series, started book two with that. Then starting this one today. I definitely need a hit book to propel the others at least closer to the top. We'll see...

Thanks. Almost done with re-write of book one so I can start again on book 2. The homebrewing book has a good start as well. had to shorten the alternate title of it to A Journey in Home Brewing to make it fit. My home brew notes that go back to the beginning are good to use. They have anecdotal info & all that too.

Well, the re-write of book one of my Time Lords 2034 series is done! I took out a ton of copyrighted stuff. But just E-Mailed NASA for certain permissions. I just found out something about HG Wells stuff. Since my reference to his Work "War of the Worlds" was published before 12/31/22, it's in the public domain. Here's the link where I found that out; http://www.hgwellsusa.50megs.com/UK/hgwcopy.html
So it would seem no worries there. Just have to wait & see what NASA says about the small Earth pic I used in the cover art & names of spacecraft & projects. I hope they're not greedy about it?...otherwise, the re-write is ready to upload pending NASA's answer.

NASA images are public domain as long as you give credit.... I published a popular science book a couple years ago using over 250 NASA and ESA images.... No worries. You just can't use the NASA logo or imply that you stuff is affiliated with or approved by NASA. And you can't use images with identifiable people.

Here's some links to the image use policy:
http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/guidelines/index.html#.VBHmDSj1alk
http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/imagepolicy/
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikilegal/NASA_images

If you need some world building suggestion for your SF, check out my "50 Most Extreme Places in Our Solar System" www.extremesolarsystem.com

Hardcover, published by Harvard University Press, but not an academic text. Translated to German, Korean, and Japanese.

Thanks man! I'll look over the link later. Cool prospects await! And I'm glad to hear the public domain nature of NASA pics. I only used the one on the cover the rest are program or spacecraft names...there's a lot of books & stuff there. Not surprised about Io, but raining diamonds on Neptune? Cha-ching!

Pretty sure that you're fine with mission and spacecraft names as well.

Since mine was non-fiction we didn't even worry about names and the topic never came up from the publisher.... The images, however, they wanted permission all signed off by the creator(s) or proof that they were public domain.

That's pretty much what I'm waiting for. At least proof of public domain so I can keep getting my 70%...besides the need for some technical accuracy/ecstasy...
