#515: Up and At ’Em

September 27, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Bleeding Cool ran a brief (three-question) interview with me on Friday, in case you missed it. It's actually the second time Dale Lazarov put me through his All Is Full of Linky Love interview stylings (the first time being when it ran at Talk About Comics a long time ago), but like I told him, if he asked me the same questions in another year, they'd be different answers.

I need just TWO pre-orders for the Michael Bay is the Devil T-shirt before I can print those puppies up. They're $17.99 now, but they'll be going up to $19.99 after the pre-order (I based the original $17.99 pricing on an rough guess, but had to revise the finished price after getting a quote; it's a four-color design, don't forget). If you're a lady or a plus-sized (XXL and up) dude, it's a very good idea to pre-order, because I can't seem to get rid of them in the other shirt designs, so the odds of me ordering those sizes is slim!

EDIT: I just got those last two, so the Michael Bay shirt is GO. Get your orders in now at the pre-order pricing, though. The price will go up to $19.99 on October 4th — and I won't be ordering many extra Men's XXL and up or Ladies sizes.

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 If you have already written the short story, great, but it must be previously unpublished.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