Palm Springs Comic Con asked me to be involved in four panels at their November show, which I was thrilled about. Over the next couple of weeks, I will be releasing the live episodes from the event.
The first one I am releasing is my Kickstarting Comics panel. Melissa Kirkman from Cali Comics moderated this panel, which was just me and Madeleine Holly-Rosing. Madeleine is a favorite of the show. This is her third appearance. She was also on the show here, and part of my How to Build an Audience from Scratch panel here. The was the breakout show for Cali Comics, who I’ve known for years and released their first slate of books at the show. You can check out their books here.
This is the most pointed Kickstarter discussion we’ve had on the show, as it related specifically to comics and books. We touch on other types of crowdfunding campaigns, but 90% of this episode is about using Kickstarter for books, and specifically comics.
Aside from just Kickstarter, we also talk about when to find a publisher, and how to find a publisher, the advantages of self-publishing, and many other topics, but Kickstarter for comics is the #1 focus.
I hope you enjoy it!
