Hey guys.. I'm new here. Very new. My name is Chris and I'm a self-publishing writer from Cincinnati getting close to releasing my first two books through my own self-serving company (Assailant Comics).
I started writing my first comic series (12 issue arc) last year. Originally I had hoped to have it published by an established publisher but quickly realized that just wasn't reality for many reasons. I've spent the last few months getting together a business plan and putting my own books together. Tons of rookie mistakes. Oversights. Just stupid things I've done as I've pushed through this process for the first time. Despite that, I really fell in love with the process.
I documented all of this in my blog called "How To Die Trying", which was recently moved to MyComicBlog.com. I think there could be some helpful stuff for anyone going down the same path. Hopefully someone else can learn from my mistakes. It's been a lot of work self-publishing. Some real heartache and headaches, but also an amazing feeling of accomplishment. It kinda made my wallet sad... but still...
Anyway.. if anyone is interested in reading it, it's HERE: How To Die Trying
My first book releases are right around the corner. The Assailant Comics website will be active soon and all sorts of fun stuff.
Just wanted to say hello. Nice to meet you guys!
PS - The letterer on my first series is none other than Brant Fowler! (he's awesome) Hi Brant!
