Hello everybody, I was thinking!

I know, call me a maniac but I had an idea. Why not publish a book on ABDLs? The idea is simple: we gather the best stories and we make a compilation, we add ADISC's articles on Infantilism and How To Accept Yourself and voila, we have a book! I think it's an interesting idea, if you'd like. Of course there are legal matters and such, but it's worth a shot don't you think?

I can take care of the project if you'd like, and share the profits equally with every author who'd likes to participate.

I'd just need permission from the writer's to use their stories and have them published in a book we can sell in Amazon and other sites WORLDWIDE.

Requisites:

1.- Story must be "innocent". That means, try to keep sex to a minimum.
2.- It must portray an ABDL in a good manner.
3.- The story must be at least 7000-10000 words long.
4.- Permission release form (I can make it) from each writer to release the story to the public.
5.- I need a team that will act like a judge panel to choose stories.

Anybody in the forum can contribute by chosing his/her favorite story and submitting it through this thread for analization and review.

So, worth a shot? If this could be made, which stories would you suggest for it? "A New Home For Baby Nick"? "Raquel's Only Wish"? What would you like to see in this book?

Call me crazy, but I think we as a community can make it!

In what seems like my special way of pointing out the negative, some random thoughts:

- There are already a fair number of ABDL books out there, most are quite terrible.
- The "free porn" problem. There is a ludicrous amount of free stories out there, and sites that index them, so you have to consider what the value added is. A collection of otherwise freely available content, especially if sold digitally, adds very little value. For people to actually pay for something that they can get for free, you have to have either significantly higher quality, or appeal to a specific niche group.
- Authors tend to be fairly protective of their work, and just contacting them will be a significant problem. "DprGrrrl1984 on SiteFullOfDiaperStories.com said it was cool" is probably not enough if you are talking about something you plan on actually selling.

Hi BoundCoder, yeah, I know there are setbacks.
-I know there are ABDL books out there, and I know they are TERRIBLE. That's why I want to make a difference.
-Maybe we could write our own stories, from here, in a blog or something. That will make it more of OUR STORIES, because we're the authors. I'm talking about QUALITY stories that we can distribute amongst ourselves.

Thanks for your random thoughts, though, really appreciated!

Well,

It's an idea...

But, as stated would need to be much higher quality than what's available...both in format and content...

I've published a few books (Manuals) and having the reference and releases is a HUGE project on its own...

Just getting the proper permission for photos in my endeavors was way harder than I thought it should be...in the end I ended up having all the gear brought to a private studio and over the course of a week we do all the shots we needed without extra hands or tools in the photos that were needing releases...first time I ever meet a hand model though?

So, releases are all done...

Now, any changes to the original that was sent in will need a revised release or ok from the author...

My grammar and spelling sucks...but I see lots of errors n every story...from spelling to punctuation and grammar...

So, now you have the proper releases and final renditions hopefully formatted in a similar manner to main continuity of the book...

Next, comes compiling the book of shorts...with some artwork to make the stories pop...indexing...and covers etc...

Its a daunting task!

I'm not saying don't do this...in fact I think done right it will sell...not sure how much...but I'd buy one most likely...

So, if you put in the hours...delegated or your own...make a first rate and rational book...it would be good...

Now by rational i say, good continuity...say the book is all fictional stories...or real(ish) stories...or self help stories

I don't think a vanilla would buy a book about Abdl stories...and an ab doesn't need to know what an ab is...so for instance you most likely won't have a section abut what is AB in detail in a book of stories...

In other words pick your demographic...there is a bit of crossover...but not enough to include each others area in detail...

Ex. Perhaps in the forward to the book, or introduction you can mention Abdl and about it in general terms...

If someone wanted to spend lots of time doing this project...there is perhaps a few books that could be sculpted from the gigantic mind of ADISC...

Ex.
Am I an ABDL & How to deal with being an ABDL
What's an ABDL and they aren't sickos
ABDL Stories of fiction and real(ish) type stuff

I'm sure the titles need some work :)

But, in all seriousness...I'd throw in my hat for what I can do...
I have 24/7 servers available for storage and/or virtual servers if needed...Located in my home IT center...
I can proofread...as can most...

PM me if you want/need anything

Kik91,

I'm no AB - and I am not into stories of the AB/DL nature. So my comment here is based on a different point of view...

What I can not discern from your idea so far is its actual goal -
A) is it to create a book that will help the general audience understand ABDLism better in a non-creepy manner?
B) Is it a book that is focused on ABDLs providing them with a bundle of stories?
C) Should it be Both?

Now in case of "A" - leave out all fictional stories! honestly, from a point of view of someone who's not into the stuff, the stories for 99.9% are rather creepy.
To be honest I love to read, I love fictional stuff, but there are so many ABDL Stories, even if not sexual per se, which are so borderline on Abuse and worse that I don't think anyone outside the circle of people who're into that kind of fantasy will find it even remotely pleasing. Also to the average non ABDL person the idea of an Adult being reduced to a Baby-Like state isn't going to sell well.
If it should be a support type book, mostly intended for the audience who's inclined to learn more about the subject, get an insight, etc... maybe because their partner is an ABDL...
Than I'd say the book would need a bunch of REAL LIFE STORIES - no weird fiction. Basically honest 1st-person reports on how it is, how life is, what difficulties, problems and joys are encountered...
I'd also be weary to link to ONLINE references, as you have no control over that content. The content might be ok at the time of publishing, but half a year later....

B) if it's for ABDLs primarily... then there's absolutely zero market value. There are TONS of stories, forums, self-help, etc. materials out there, free of charge... compiling a bunch will not be a rewarding work.

C) I don't see this working at any rate. Well this isn't true in its entirety - if you'd do an "A" version (a book intended for an interested Audience who wants to learn more about the ABDL World without the creepy stories), it could just as easily serve as a self-help book for ABDLs struggling with their identity by showing them how a number of other people are coping, living, etc...

Another factor to consider: Many of us struggle with buying diapers in person, even on-line in some cases. Who, absent the compulsions we experience, is going to be seen buying such a book?

The idea is simple: we gather the best stories and we make a compilation

I admire your enthusiasm but I fear it is anything but simple. There are so many different kinds ABDL's around, that just agreeing on what are the best stories is almost a mission impossible. There are thousands of stories around and only very few are really attractive to me. Most are just plain boring to me or include subjects that turn me off. Including any stories about minors, sissies, baby girls, humiliation, sex, or real live experiences would be a reason for me not to buy your book. But if you leave them out you will no doubt lose a lot of other potential buyers.

So I wish you luck but I fear that it will be near impossible to please a big enough group of people to make it worthwhile.

OK, guys...it was an idea. But if you think it doesn't work, I understand. It was just something that had me excited for a second, but don't worry :)

I think it might work but, like people have said, you have to pick your target market carefully and go through some legal hurdles. So, if you intend to do it, take EPO1's and Bigbabybret's advice carefully.

As an author, I'd have to say "What's in it for me?" I've got plenty of stories I could self publish (POD is trivial, e-book publishing is even more mindless).

OK. Rather than simply delete this one, I let it run its course. You had an interesting discussion and brought up many ideas (and roadblocks). The biggest roadblock of all, though, is one that you did not think of: you cannot, according to forum rules, organize such a thing here because to do so is to solicit authors for external posting rather than posting here, which is contrary to the mission of this forum. So I'm closing this thread at this time. It was a good conversation though.
