Another way I am hoping to break into comics, is through getting stories in anthologies. My hope is to get more eyes on my work. So I search and pitch to anthologies, and it’s been to mixed success.
Like most thing when trying to break into comics, there is a lot of rejection. It’s part of the process, but never easy to deal with. And early on I had my fair share. But lately that has turned around. I have two stories coming out soon, and building my network has had helped out a lot.
I have a story in the “Why Faith?” Anthology called “Faith and Forever” and a story called “Where 4RU?” in the “My Kingdom for a Panel” Anthology. These will be coming out soon after crowd funding. And I can’t wait to be part of them! “Why Faith?” has a story from a New York Times Bestseller, how cool is that?
I recently heard back that another pitch I had in didn’t make it. But that’s OK, I will either submit it elsewhere, or make it on my own.
Got to keep make comics and trying to break in.
Thanks for reading, back next week with a blog post on video production.
