Home to the most thought-provoking and engaging properties to come out of the small press.

As I've begun this process, I've had random brain-farts for ideas that I think better develop the overhaul of the self-publishing process I've begun. As I've stated before, the overall goal of this project is to create a model that requires very little financial investment from the intended creator -- so far, I've managed to work with no investment, although I'm willing to admit that I've created a misstep in my process by going at it that way. In retrospect, my plan for doing sketches to raise funds for my print cost is still stellar, but if I had planned a majority of the aspects of my book before hand (like the title!) I'd have been able to take $5 (a nominal investment) and create a really cool sketch card that kicks starts my promotional campaign! But as they say, hindsight is always 20/20 and I've rectified the issue by creating the piece below. It has everything on it EXCEPT the intended release date, but that's only because I haven't finished the book yet! Should these run out and I need to generate a bit more capital later on, I can add that later to further promote the book...possibly even using them like a pre-order form! Without question, the sky's the limit and as always, keep cre-8ing!

Reading is Fundamental...

So, I went back to the theatre today for my second round (boy time flies!!) at fundraising. I had taken a small bit from what I earned previously and had some sketch-cards printed out at a local Staples Copy Center (expense of less than $5!) The cards look AWESOME and was able to earn another $13 (only $17 shy from my $50 overall goal). I had done at least 3 pieces when a guy, intent on buying one asks "What's Ominbus?" And I instinctively correct him and say, "It's called OMNIBUS (ohm-neh-bus)" And the guy says, "That's not what it says..." and he's 100% correct!!!!! I had printed up these lovely cards and totally GOOFED on spelling the title correctly!!! I was super embarrassed, but the guy said that he dug the mistake and wanted the piece any way -- so, here's the CORRECTED logo for your viewing pleasure.
