#689: Bad Brains

Notes from the Manager

Thank you once again to everybody who backed the Book 2 Kickstarter project! I am incredibly grateful for your support and generosity!

Starting next week, I will work my ass off to deserve it by making the best book I can. And next weekI'll be issuing Book 2 updates primarily through the Kickstarter Updates feed (and web page)— although you can also follow me on Twitter, because the links will get posted there, too.

Sorry about the delay in opening up PayPal donations towards Book 2 (for those of you who have asked about that). Expect that on Monday or possibly sometime over the weekend.

I've been a little busy getting my ducks lined up for going to grad school in the fall (I've officially accepted a spot in the Graphic Design MFA program at the University of Minnesota now), and with one large freelance illustration project that I need to get polished off before I can start on Book 2. So, you know. Don't worry: there should be plenty of time to get Book 2 completely finished (reader for the printer, anyway) before school starts. And hopefully school won't get in the way of Multiplex… but we'll worry about that when we get there.

This arc will be continued, of course, on Monday. See you then!

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 If you have already written the short story, great, but it must be previously unpublished.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