The Glorious Gutter Life
005 - Preorders, and the Life and Death of Your Favorite Comic
You have a finished book.
Let that sink in for a second.
You finished a book. And whether it’s an issue or a whole OGN, it’s a finished thing for you to be proud of. Take a moment and relish in it.
Because now we’re up to the hard part:
(Yes, another THE hard part, because each one is the hardest bit while you’re in it.)
Getting people to order your book.
I don’t think we as creators can ever stress strongly enough just how important a reader preordering a title is to the survival of that book.
The survival of your book.
And, as of this week, my book, too.
