Have you felt sorry when realizing that you haven’t made progress in your project as you wanted? You are not alone. Due to my move to Japan and some conventions, my project was somewhat on hold. In the month of May when I had 42 complete pages until today, I only finished 18 pages of my comic LIVE FOREVER. I have completed 60 pages in total.
It was very tiring to move from one country to another and at the same time frustrating not have a head for work on my project. I had also been preparing the proposal for IMAGE COMICS, and they never answered me. Even I wrote twice, one to the submissions email and another to the personal email of the editor in chief. And nothing…
And like a third time, a colleague with a lot of reputation helped me to send it directly, and nothing … I didn’t even want to ask him if he got a reply because if he doesn’t write me, then it’s evident that he didn’t receive any response, so I didn’t want to bother him. There can be many reasons: Image didn’t read my email, Editor’s email was saturated, he wasn’t interested in my work, or as simple as I wrote him at a wrong time. The thing is that the conditions weren’t in my favor.
But when everything seemed not to work, a proposal fell from heaven. But what is it? In the coming weeks, I’ll reveal what it’s about… 🙂
My latest progress:
- I have drawn 60 pages so far. (They still have to be brushed up).
- Write the list of all episodes. (More than 20 and maybe more).
- Plan the Marketing.
- Prepare the proposal for some publishers. (I have news of this that I will soon announce)
- Create content like these for you. The most popular are:
So it’s still a few months to finish this project. In the meantime, I will continue to share with you more sneak peeks and other production news so that you don’t feel so much time waiting.
Has the wait been long?
I don’t feel that it made you wait long since I have regularly been sharing content with you and this has made you part of the production process of this project. And I want to believe you enjoyed it, right?
When am I going to publish it?
The confirmed month of publication is OCTOBER. I know I told you before August, but it’s impossible because… Wait! I can’t give you details. All promptly! But for the moment I assure you that you can read it in the month of October.
Am I going to print it?
I’m thinking of some point print it. And the plans for how you’re going to read it have been changing, and when I thought this project was stalled, something unexpected happened! Something good for YOU, perfect for the project and my career as an author. So wait for news 😉
Do you want some progress?
I already showed you five pages, but I’ll show you a couple more to thank you for your patience and support. These are the pages that follow after page five.
It is worth mentioning that there will be a slight change in the first pages, as well as drawing new ones because there was an adjustment in the story of which I will talk at the time. I don’t want to spoil the story. Also, that means you have more new things to see!
The value content will be suspended for a while to continue working on my comic and leave it ready for you to read since I’m running late. But don’t worry, I’ll continue sending you every Monday exclusive material doesn’t show anywhere else. In addition to some other news during the week whether of my life in Japan, production anecdotes, among other things. What do you think? So I’ll keep in touch with you.
