Okay, okay, okay, I know. I have left this website to stagnate for a while. I’ll work on it. What are the highlights for you? Recently Steven and I revisited GMB Chomichuk and Justin Currie (Chasing Artwork) on their podcast Super Pulp Science:
TL;DL: Steven and I wanted to talk about what it’s like self-publishing, and how we work together as a creative team, which as it turns out, is pretty well.
So here is our estimated timeline moving forward, for those of you who have been keeping up with our journey:
May 22 – Our file-in Print Deadline with our printer, Friesens.
June 23/24 – FanQuest in Winnipeg, MB, where Steven and I will be debuting Infinite Universe!
- Finish the book. This one is going to happen, but we’re in our final sprint now with just over 2 weeks left to get everything done.
- Start thinking about what we want to have at our table at events moving forward. For those of you who are also getting started at shows, there’s a great Super Pulp Science episode that Steven and I will probably emulate. You can listen to it right here.
- For those that don’t want to listen, here’s our grocery list right now:
- Prints! Probably a few original, probably a few fan-art style
- Square Card Reader – so we can take payment at the table.
- A banner. We really need to settle on a RadKaul Comics logo before we can do this one.
- Book Stands! Nothing crazy, but something so that we can display our book.
- And finally, we are going to start putting together pitch packages that we can take tp publishers to further distribute our book once it’s made.
“But wait,” you may ask, “if you were going to go for a publisher, why even self-publish in the first place?!”
Good question. Because if you were a publisher, and a couple of guys with no publishing credits told you they wanted to make a book, would you take a gamble on them? Dicey. it comes down to what Steven and I tell ourselves all the time: “No one is going to take you seriously until you finish something.”
So that’s where we are. We’re finishing something. And I mean that literally. We’re so close I can taste it, and we can’t wait to share it with you when it’s done.
Until the next time,
P.S. I owe you some art, so here’s a work-in-progress poster I recently tossed together for a page in the book.
