oh god, the thinks to do  

- get superman stuff at lidl
- get marshmallow fluff at aldi
- get stir fry stuff
- decide what color to paint young indy’s room get paint
- see what kind of inoffensive small carpet can be had for cheap
- call about a shed
- pack up my office
- and the RPGs upstairs
- die in a pit

- do more laundry

In completely unrelated news, yesterday I muttered “take a chance. old races. inheritors’ cycle. #ThingsIAmNotKickstarting #CommaDammit” on Twitter and Fred, who is an enabler, started rolling out ideas on how to run a terrific Chance graphic novel project. WHOSE SIDE IS HE ON, ANYWAY?

(instant download of first issue at $1. full GN download at $25. automatic signed print copy at whatever amount works out to be practical. seriously limited oversized hardcover edition for way high end backers. new chance universe short story for the GN if it makes over $X. new issues of chance/2nd GN at some really preposterously large amount of money…NOT THAT I’M THINKING ABOUT THIS.)

Then roll the first issue out for free a month after the Kickstarter ends, forever, as bait for the full graphic novel purchase.

See also https://submit.comixology.com. Although 50% seems like a crappy percentage.

50%'s very good, actually.

Learn something every day! Why's it less for digital comics than Amazon would give for digital books? I guess you have to go exclusive to get the good Amazon rate.

No, you get 70% in some of Amazon's Kindle markets as long as your book price is within the range they say for it to be in, and otherwise you get 30%. Most publishers, at least my publishers, have magnanimously raised their e-royalties to 25% at this point. So 50% is really very good. :)

You should Kickstart Chance! Also maybe that other comic. Both.

The Chance GN or the ongoing story, I wondered? In your opinion (which I value highly in these matters).
Bryantbryant on June 20th, 2013 08:44 pm (UTC)
The Chance GN has a great marketing story (creator reclaims property from a publisher who did poorly by her). I think you can tell it subtly to avoid burning bridges. Also the comic is written and drawn and inked, so easier to get it out there.

And if you can get Ardian involved, win.

Totally think the Chance thing is a good idea - but then I think I may have said that already.

But AFTER the move...'Kay?
