PATHS TO PUBLISHING: A roundtable discussion about what to do with your comic (or book) once you’ve finished it.
Crunch time. One week before Komikon left.
You’ve drawn, lettered, inked, and colored your masterpiece. Think you’re finished? Nope! That’s only half the job, kiddo. Now you have to figure what to do with it: Publish it on the web? Print it up as a book and sell it at conventions? Make an e-book and put it on the Kindle Store? What next !?!
Join a group of creators, fans, and editors as we discuss these questions, and more.
This is a FREE talk, and all guests are more than welcome to chime in, ask their questions, and say their bits!
- The ways book and comic publishing are changing.
-The current state of the indie (and traditional) comic publishing scene;
-new avenues to publishing and getting your work in front of readers
-possible new ways to make an income from your work
-How to pitch to publishers AND readers
It’s a wild world out there- digital media and fluctuating readership have opened comics publishing to whole new challenges. The rewards are few, but for the brave and the stubborn, very high indeed!
Date: November 9, 2014 at The Forum, Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street, BGC, Taguig. 2-5 pm.

The book that changed my life was incidentally the one that got me into reading. A young adult fiction story about self discovery and dealing with unexpected tragedy, Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick was an eye-opener for me.
When people talk about Haruki Murakami’s bestselling novel “Norwegian Wood”, they talk of being thrust into a beautiful, dream-like world of adolescent love, longing, loss and loneliness — a complex mix of emotions that may have inspired James Cousins’ There We Have Been and Without Stars.
At the helm of this masterpiece is James Cousins, a graduate of London Contemporary Dance School who quickly established his mark as a rising star and became the first winner of the Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures Award.
