#199: Ledgerdemain, Part One

January 24, 2008

Notes from the Manager

First things first: I know. Several of the "facts" in here have since been debunked. This strip takes place on Tuesday, immediately after the news broke -- and some of these debunked facts are still being reported in supposedly legitimate news outlets, like the bit about pills being "scattered about" his body. Anyway. Bear with me. I'm going somewhere with this.

Second: I'm not trying to make fun of his death, so don't yell at me about that. Bear with me, and when this is all done, if you think it was in poor taste, then yell at me, and I'll tell you how little I care.

Third: I liked Heath Ledger as an actor, in the handful of movies I've seen him in, and I felt he was on the verge of a breakthrough in his career with Dark Knight. So, really. I'm not making fun. Bear with me.

Thank you again to Shayna Marchese for the guest strip on Monday. If you missed it, go read it. It's in-continuity, and all of you love Devi, so of course you want to know what's been up with her, right?

Tell me a story. (Looking for a prose writer for an eBook single.)

Sunday, March 29, 2015

I want to take a foray into electronic publishing.

I am looking for a (prose) writer to provide a short story, novella or non-fiction story that I will turn into an iBooks-formatted eBook for sale (in the iBookstore), released under my Chase Sequence publishing imprint. Chase Sequence published Multiplex: There and Back Again, which won the 2014 IBPA Gold Medal for Best Graphic Novel/Drawn Book–Humor/Cartoon, so technically it is an award-winning publisher.

There is no limitation with regard to genre, but I will say that my taste in prose leans strongly toward literary fiction and non-fiction, and toward characters, psychology, and well-written prose over plot. (Margaret Atwood is my favorite writer.)

What to Submit: A pitch for a 30+ page, prose short story/novella/non-fiction piece. No comics — no picture books. If you have already written the short story, great, but it must be previously unpublished. Please include links or URLs to a resumé and examples of previous published work would be helpful, to give me a feel for your voice.

Send questions (or submissions) to gordon at multiplexcomic.com.

The Terms: No money up front, but 50% of the cover price in exchange for one year of exclusivity (from the date of publication). The writer retains all other rights to their story. These will be sold via iBooks only (at least at first), which means that Apple will get 30% and I will get 20% for my contributions: I will edit the story; I will design and produce the eBook; I will illustrate a cover for it (or hire someone else to, if I’m not the best fit for the story); I will help promote it.

Please submit your pitch before April 30, 2015. I will notify the selected writer(s) I am interested in working with as soon as possible after that.
