After another episode of a ranting and raving email to 2L and telling the graphic designer that we are not picking out the strongest pictures. (P.S. 2L nor I are allowed to email Crazy at this point without her going completely off the reservation) So, of course our sweet graphic designer asks for photos and she sends over the wrong ones. Again. At this point we had another photographer lined up to re do our whole shoot and we were going to head off to Stinson Beach. Mostly, I am irritated because this is delaying our book. Crazy does calm down and called 2L to ask where things went wrong because she honestly did not know. She also sent me a pretty long apology email and I responded with a thank you and that we really just wanted the photos and to finish the project. Our sweetheart graphic designer made one last ditch effort to get hi res and succeded. Then crazy tried to add me on Facebook. Really!?
Here is the deal, even when you are working with a family friend, there are certain things you need to get in contract ... oh, and HAVE and contract. Oh, and don't contract with crazy ever. It is not worth the grief.
