This is kinda old now but it’s still so good.
Creating, Printing and Selling Your Comic in the Digital Age
If you like the articles I’ve written on reMINDblog.com then you might LOVE my book that is all about self-publishing comics. You can now order the paperback on Amazon and get a free Kindle download with your purchase. This book is a nicely packaged collection of everything I learned while making reMIND and while trying to sell it. There are chapters on making money, fundraising on Kickstarter, growing your audience, distribution and so much more. Pretty much every question I get asked is answered in this book so please check it out and get copies for your friends who are trying to make comics.
Audio Version Coming Soon
You heard me right. I am recording the audio version of Unnatural Talent as well. I plan to sell it on Amazon as well as Audible when it’s finished. In fact, here are the first three chapters already finished and on YouTube. Check it out my playlist below:
Sunday only, I’ll be at Long Beach Comic Con this weekend (September 28th) selling and signing copies of reMIND 1 & 2 as well as Unnatural Talent and Progressions.
I’ll be at the Eat/Geek/Play booth #142 towards the back of the hall. Come see me if you are attending the show! :)
Whew! I really broke reMIND hard the other day. I had to call in the big guns to help me get it fixed. Yep, the President of the United States. He put the same people on it who fixed the Obamacare website. Better yet, I’m not paying for it. Just expect another tax hike this year. :)
Sorry, bad jokes all around.
But I did get the help of Philip Hofer from Frumph.net to help and he went above and beyond to assist me in my mess. Thanks Philip!
Better yet, this has inspired me to dig into reMINDblog and fix all the problems that I’ve been putting off for a long time! Like 2 years! One of the things you might notice is that I put the Guest comics back into the menu. I removed them for a while because people were getting confused when they were reading reMIND and then came to all the guest comics. But now I will add them all back and try to organize it all so it’s easy to navigate. I’m also going to add back in all the guest art from my contests here so it’s easy to navigate too.
So hopefully this week everything will be all polished and new looking. :)
Thanks again for following my progress and a BIG thank you to everyone who supported my latest Kickstarter for Sithrah! Together we raised $51,761!
See you soon!
Many of you know that I started MakingComics.com a few years back with big dreams of it becoming the ultimate free making comics resource online. Then I started the Making Comics Podcast where I talked to a bunch of amazing talented artists and writers of comics. This was super fun and rewarding but the weight of creating and managing all the content got overwhelming when accompanied with finishing reMIND and keeping it on track.
I didn’t know what to do so I stopped.
Then I met Patrick Yurick when he invited me to be on a panel discussion and I saw his passion and drive for teaching people to make comics. He also had a great track record and loads of experience with non-profit companies. I approached him about taking over MakingComics.com several month back and the results have been astounding. Patrick has since put together an amazing team of passionate people (that keeps growing by the day) and behind the scenes they have been planning a massive site relaunch for January 1st. There will be regular podcasts, panel discussions, tutorials, articles, and even free online live classrooms to join and learn from. The vision for MakingComics.com has now dwarfed my original vision and I’m excited to see what happens after it launches in the new year. It’s hard to explain just how much they are doing but to help give you an idea, here is a quick preview discussion that we had last night talking about some of the things you can expect to see in January when the site relaunches.
Please, mark your calendars. January 1st, 2014, the new doors will open and I hope you are as excited as I am to see what cones from this.
