Publishing

Tell Zambia about a shop selling some product cheaper than others. Or ask others to help you find something. Compare quality too.

How many copies are you looking to publish, pages and what set out budget do you have?
If you are just looking for a printer to do the work I know a brilliant one.

Emzy 1 zalé ,

comics where my passion in my teens and early twenties. i made a lot of comic books and bought a lot as well. marvel comics especially were my favourite, still are. captain america, spider-man,hulk were an obsession. i seriously encourage you to continue drawing and keep that passion alive. book-stores in zambia dont stock comic books. even my MAD magazine wont be found on the shelves these days. sad.

all the very best Emzy 1 zalé , will definitely buy and support your work. good luck

Well done Emzy. I'd love to see your comics. Here's an idea :idea: . There are tons of comic book resources online with a feverish following. While you can have your comic book published in print for sale here in Zambia, why don't you also make your presence online. Join these communities, interact with fellow comic book enthusiasts, get their response and feedback. Chances are you'll gain alot from just being there.

But for now, can you give us sample? 8-)

I hope your ears don't have wax coz this is no bullshitin', am gong to tell you here.

The publisher business is dead. The Internet killed it. In this day and age, anyone and everyone can publish on their own volition. Their own power. Their own terms. Seriously dude, welcome to the 21st century. forget the publisher. If you have access to the internet, which you obviously do, publish your own sh*t. This is the age of the one man army.

Good luck and God bless you.

Emzy.

Don't be cheated. Publishing is still very well and alive! In fact I saw him walking down Cairo road just yesterday :)! Get a good publisher and get your stuff PRINTED. The internet has ONLY stolen part of the market NOT ALL of it. We still watch TV (as in we still pay multi-choice 500 pin a month just to watch the same movies we can watch or download from Coordinator's internet), we still go to the movies, we still go to the bookshop and buy books, we still buy newspapers, we still read good comic books BOUGHT OFF THE SHELF.

Your strategy is just more diverse so that it includes the internet.

My advice to you is go ahead and make publishing arrangements. Get an internet page to showcase your work - and sell your comic books!

As a start, do a sample picture of your work and post it on this forum. You can take a picture of half a page, post it here and we can criticize you until you give up - if you don't have a strong wishbone! ke ke ke!

Good luck!!

Scholarly gentlemen Rude Nude Dude and Bamwine,

I think perhaps you may have misunderstood the gist of my post addressed to the one and only Emzy 1 zalé. Or perhaps it is me who misunderstood the Emzy in the first place.

I got the impression that the dude was sweating to find a publisher for his masterpiece. And from the look of things, there were no publishers on the horizon. At least none willing to publish his masterpiece.

So that's when I thought I give him an alternative. It is a fact that many authors who would never had a chance in the old world of publishing, are now self-published, thanks to the Internet.

What I'm saying is, if you find a traditional publisher, fine. If those publishing dinosaurs think you are too much of a novice for them to risk it, then go it alone via the Internet. My intention was definitely not to kill the Emzy's dreams of having his masterpiece published some day.

Do not forget that you will need an expert to check your book before you publish it, lest you publish something that will have no readership online. Yes, eBooks are the 21st thing! But how many people take time to read online vis-a vis printed books?

I am an independent Proofreader/Editor. Please call me to read through any work you may have before your book goes for publishing. I see many mistakes in many books and it's not impressive. So please call on my services. I am independent, which means we can negotiate.
