50 Days Later… The White Jade Comlet
After 50 days of waiting, and some not so nice words to the Printing Company, I now hold 4 Copies of My First Ever Self Published Comlet, or 8 Page Partial Comic.
I have to say, they came out Amazing…
One of the reasons I’ve been so Patient with this Printing Company, is because the Quality of Their Work is Very Strong.
Coupled with Good Customer Service, I was Patient.
Until they started to Get Sloppy… And I suspect it’s the Manager or Owner that is to blame.
But, I suspect I shall Never know.
Meanwhile I’ve taken up Researching a Different Printer for This Book, so we shall see how that goes.
Now Comes the Hard Part… No, not the Marketing, which I know Full Well will be a Challenge… No, that’s not it.
Up until now, I’ve always just Hired My Artist to Draw me Work, but I’ve come to a pretty strong realization, that if I’m actually going to begin Marketing This Comic, I need to sit down and Truly Hash out the Specifics in Regards to Money, should I start to actually generate interest in this Book.
In the Past, I Hired her, and she did the Drawings. Simple enough. But if I actually start to Sell Full Blown Issues of this Comic, How will that work?
Anyway, that is the task at hand… To Set up the Financial Part of it with My Artist ahead of time… So that if I Generate Enough Interest in this Book, that we have a Lagit System in place to Cover Both of Our Asses Financially, lol
Once we have that set up, I can Begin Trying to Generate Interest in White Jade, and go from there.

What this is Designed to do, is to Stir Up Interest in the Story, and Art of The White Jade Comic.
Once I begin Generating some Revenue from Writing, I will most likely Rehire Del to continue Drawing Pages for White Jade… At this Point I have The Original 8 Pages she did for me in 2006-2007, as well as The Cover for Issue #1, and Issue #2.
Back in 2007 I Submitted These Pages to Dark Horse Comics, and Antarctica Comics, to no avail…
And then Life Stepped in, and I sat White Jade down once again, along with Writing in General, until August 18th of Last Year.
At which point I started my Main Blog, The Written Word, and have created several more Blogs along the way.
Now that I have returned to Writing, and/or Creating, I decided to Pick Up White Jade where I left off, however, as Self Publishing is such a Huge Thing Now, I decided to start having what I do have Printed, as Is.
And I sent off The Pages to be Printed in Comic Book Format this afternoon, so we’ll see how they come out.
