#289: Personal Religulosity, Part Three

This strip takes place in an as-yet-unnamed 24-hour, ’50s-themed diner that just-so-happens to be decorated with movie posters from the decade. (I couldn’t resist.) It’s located down the strip mall from the Multiplex 10 and Flickhead Video, and will probably show up again sooner or later.

I’ve been really taken aback by the enthusiastic response to this story arc, particularly from my Christian readership. I hope this last installment of the three-parter didn’t ruin everything. Anyway, as always, thank you for reading.

The voting round continues through October 14th for Frumph.net’s Webcomics Readers Choice Awards! Angie has been nominated for (Best) Supporting Character, which is really cool in and of itself — but If she wins, I will do a bonus strip “acceptance speech”! She’s currently in the lead, but if you haven’t voted yet, be sure to help keep her there!

(Oh, and by the way, the desktop picture featuring Sunny as Tinker Bell that — previously available only as a vote incentive — has been added to the Extras page.)

UPDATE (10/11): A rather lengthy interview with me has gone up at ComixTalk. It's my second interview with them; the first was back in 2006, when Multiplex was still a new kid on the block.

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 IPBA 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 If you have already written the short story, great, but it must be previously unpublished.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.
