SDRR: hookers and blow


It was expensive, but not quite that expensive.

Maybe hookers or blow?

Self publishing; for people who think destination weddings demonstrate too much humility.

The Muthaship: Self publishing; for people who think destination weddings demonstrate too much humility.


That analogy does work when you consider regular publishing and traditional marriage as archaic institutions that haven't really adapted to modern social conventions.  You might have a point though and I think you should really spend more time explaining to people who self publish how to be more humble, those farking jerks.

^THIS

There's a reason self publishing is called vanity publishing

Bought.  Congrats on your comic, now you get to do the hard part; promoting your material.  Ignore the folks who don't understand the amount of work or time involved and mistake ignorance for wit.

Cheers!  Looking into who to send free reviewer copies to now.  It'll most likely help that the second issue is just about complete (adding a new code to crack) and the final is already through the layout approval stage.  So at least I don't have to go out there saying 'It's the first in a series (that I will never finish).'  Also looking into if conventions are a real thing - promotions wise - or just a cool reason to travel to cons (NTTAWWT).

As to the rest...  I've been here 7 years under this handle alone.  I know it's all in the Fark game.*

/which I imagine is a lot like CAH but with more Romero and Omarion jokes
//probably the same number of Wil Wheaton jokes, though

Anecdotal but a friend of a friend self published a comic and did a convention, ended up with some really good publicity from it and sold at least enough comics to pay for the cost of the table.  He went around to all the local comic books stores as well and I believe nearly all were cool with stocking/selling if even on a trial basis.

The con scene is something I'm going to need to investigate more.

It certainly seems to be a much closer knit community than books are, so it'd probably be a good idea just for the ability to quickly network with others who might be trying their hand at the same thing.
