Woot! New webdesign and minicomic available for preorder
« on: March 31, 2006, 11:29:09 am »
Woo hoo!
I've got a new webdesign over at Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan! And I'm working on a minicomic!

The full story on the minicomic is now on the ROCR front page, and I don't want to cut and paste the whole thing here. If you're reading this after Monday, April 3, the press release will be archived on the Headsmen Mini page.

The two things are of course related - I did the redesign to coincide with the minicomic's pre-launch. It was a job and a half but I do think the new look is an improvement, and I hope the mini will be a hit (defined as selling about a hundred copies, really).

Thanks, Xepher and cha0s! I'm getting a few people preordering the comic as well so I feel I might be doing something right just this once.
Of course, to get cost down to a reasonable level, I really need something like 50 signups so it'll be a while before I'm in the clear with that.

Are you doing the big "pre-printed" style book order? Have you looked into something like www.lulu.com for on-demand publishing? Might mean you need less preorders.

It might, but quality control gets more complicated with PODs located in the US. I want this to look good, and the only way to assure that is to eyeball the books before they get mailed to me (and they have to get mailed to me at some point, even if it's just a preview copy).

I'm open-minded about POD, or at least more than I used to be. But if I went with a POD-type printer, I'd  go with one in Europe as most of my sign-ups so far are from here.
