Until recently, the traffic on this site was driven almost entirely by my blog posts. Many of these posts are stories of my early days in publishing, tidbits about contracts, and resources for creators, such as legal and insurance info.
Thousands of you now come to read the comic. Boffo!
But many of you comics readers have not also read the blog. If you have some extra time this weekend, I’d like to recommend some of the posts you may have missed.
Very Bad Publishers chronicles my adventures at the SECOND worst publisher I ever worked for. It starts out mild and gets downright wild. The contract pitfalls chronicled therein are in contracts you will encounter today. Read and heed.
101 Things Your Publisher Doesn’t Want You to Know: these are culled from a pamphlet of tips and tricks I wrote some time ago. I haven’t had the time to upload all of the original articles, but there’s stuff here that may be of use to you.
This is a list of agents who specialize in graphic novel contracts.
Here is an overview of health insurance resources for self employed creators.
For inspiration, I hope you will get some use out of the Work Is Good posts.
And for your entertainment, the HUMOR tag will bring the guffaws. I may or may not publicly reveal the horrid truth behind all those tootsie roll posts. Until then, my favorite of the laughalots is the true story Breeding in Horse Country.
I’ve loaded a number of my commissions. Including some I still haven’t shipped to the hapless patrons. I hope you enjoy these sketches.
Special thanks to DC McQueen for all of her hard work on this website, and her consultation. I had no luck trying to get my webcomic up and running by myself, and even less luck decoding the strange new world of the webcomics community. But DC has been very patient with me, and has done a great job. She also recently moved us to a new server, which has put a stop to those daily outages.
If you consider putting together a webcomics blog, I can’t think of a better person to hire for the job. I am new to webcomics, but she has made me feel very welcome. Her kindness and excellent service are much appreciated. Please do check out her webcomics magazine Girlamatic.
We’re in the middle of a terrific storm out here in the east USA, so please don’t be offended if I can’t answer emails and posts right away. The barn is flooding even as I speak. I have been unable to get online for the better part of this week.
Thank you for reading my webcomic. If you’ve got a hankering to, my tip jar appreciates the coffee money. The more caffeine I drink, the faster I draw. Seriously.
