Now, we are trying to decide how best to put our next foot forward. Here is what I mean.
With a handful of projects developed and in a viewable form do we:
- Submit them to publishers, gatekeepers, industry folks and hope that we become "the chosen"
- Do we "choose ourselves"?
- If we choose ourselves, which sounds great, what does that look like? Independent press status? Small press publishing of our own books and comix?
- Or do we put content online for free so we aren't bogged down with sales figures, reviews and things like that?
If we choose ourselves, and we choose well, then the industry gatekeepers either come and find us...or their choices become less essential.
