What's your favorite part of Sketch Fest? (Put long answers in the comments!

So, I'm thinking about compiling Rails into an ebook and possibly a print copy. Should I:

Release it as a collection of what appears at the webpage. (Possibly with a bonus story)
5(21.7%)
Make minor modifications so that the stories blend together a little better.
14(60.9%)
Make major modifications so that it reads like a novella rather than a series of short stories.
4(17.4%)

What bonus bits would entice you to buy it as an ebook or physical hardcopy?

A bonus backstory about Bai and Ressa becoming friends
4(9.3%)
A spicy-bits edition with extra racy bonus scenes
3(7.0%)
Extra illustrations
9(20.9%)
A smoothed-over version that reads as a single story, rather than a collection of shorts.
4(9.3%)
Just having it in one easy-to-read file is a big bonus!
9(20.9%)
A printed ACEO with a copy of the hardcopy
7(16.3%)
A chance to win some of the original art with any purchase
6(14.0%)
Something else I'll explain in the comments.

I'm also working on an all-me coloring book. Check all that apply.

Yay! I'm saving my pennies!
13(19.4%)
It's cheating to use any work that has previously appeared in a coloring book.
0(0.0%)
Even if that coloring book has been out of print for years.
0(0.0%)
It's also cheating to use work that was in Tell Me a Story, even though that wasn't really intended to be colored.
0(0.0%)
A bonus piece no one has seen before would be awesome!
22(32.8%)
(But isn't necessary)
19(28.4%)
It should have a theme, not just be random work.
7(10.4%)
A chance to win some of the original art with it would make me more likely to buy a copy.
5(7.5%)
Your coloring books are too expensive.
0(0.0%)
Your coloring books are so cheap!
