Gonna be startin' somethin', gonna be startin' somethin! My wife was surprised to find out that I've never actually put together a submissions package and sent one off to a publisher for what's sure to be complete and total annihilation. Maybe I should just get it out of my system?


Anyone else here already sent something off to a publisher? What happened?

Where's your blog? And when might you be trying to do this effort?

I have an awesome story idea that I'm writing. I think if I find an artist I will try some submissions.

I have some people I know at Image and Avatar.

I'm thinking of doing this. Really.

I wonder if a few of you might also want to try it?

Maybe if the Outhouse powers that be are open to it we could keep a running blog/documenting our progress from start to finish of this effort.

The Guantlet....let's run it?

It'd show the rights and wrongs of our attempts as well as see if anyone gets an actual reply from the publishers.

Nice!

Some of the four pager you got going there I'd consider some other values in those wide open backgrounds. Not sure if it'd be more blacks, tone, or clouds for texture, or hatching. But over all I like what you've got going there.

Well I've let Bluestreak know of the idea, still waiting to hear back from him. I'm sure Jon will weigh in when he see's this. If this doesn't seem like the right fit for the OH, there's always going indy. Even though it's a lonely place. :P

I've self-published a bunch of stuff on a really small-scale, around a dozen different books, and had a really lucrative deal with Wowio before the site went from paying me hundreds of dollars a month to literally fifty cents. Don't get me started on that... but the creative impulse is still there. I've sent a few inquiry letters but never thought much of it. I really need to get my ass back in gear.

Well hey. I'm looking for a few good men/women to attempt this with. We'll all work on our own projects but we blog/document our steps and progress till the bitter or sweet end. Anyone game?
