On publishing

How the sausage gets made

"It’s always interesting to see how something is done. I’ve tried to be conscious of this and show how I make my comics."

Making it work

"This post is basically just a bunch of links that promote my comic-writing effort. It's all the ways I'm trying to do one essential thing: make more comics."

The whole experience matters

"...by having control of the total experience of how your work gets in the hands of your readers, you form a deeper connection with them and create a story for your story."

New kind of ebook reading experience

"One thing that makes Indie Aisle unique is the reading experience. It's designed to make it easy for your readers to start reading right away and give them options for reading the way they are most comfortable with."

Connecting online and In Real Life

"One of the best ways I've found to get it out to people so far has been to take the hardback book to sell at comic book conventions."

What makes a good ebook

"Besides a great story of course, what's involved in producing a good ebook? Here's what I think the right components are and how we built Indie Aisle around them."

Why ebooks took so long

"ebooks are becoming more common today, quickly turning into a new standard for reading books. It's pretty interesting how long the idea of an ebook has actually been around, since even before the mainstream Internet."

The publishing empire of one

"There's no doubt ebooks are changing the way we enjoy our books, so of course publishing, the process by which an author gets their work to their readers, is completely changing as well."

Find an audience, one person at a time

"We've all heard about viral videos that spread online. The concept of being viral is just passing on something from one person to the next, branching out to a potentially large audience."

Introducing Indie Aisle

"I originally had the idea for Indie Aisle when I noticed that there were people I knew who wanted to do something creative from starting a band to having their own online comic, but didn't know how to get their work seen by other people."
