I'm a big fan of web comics. One that I've been following for years is Girl Genius by Phil and Kaja Folgio (the 'g' is silent.) Today they began raising funds on Kickstarter. Never mind they already made their first goal on the first day. Watching the whole process is fascinating, which got me thinking about my project.My biggest obstacle is visibility. So far this month I've had 1 buyer. One of my friends knows about viral marketing. I think he might help me raise awareness of the book.
You already know my form of entertainment is the written word. Today I was thinking about putting up Travelers Road on a web page, one chapter at a time. Not to underestimate people, but if there were just words on a screen, people would lose interest mighty quick. I've often remarked that TR would make a good graphic novel, but the time and expense would be problematic. Fortunately there is a middle ground. Let's say there was a chapter up on the web, but moderate sized sketches of the characters or scenes were interspersed through the narration?
Just an idea I'm bouncing around. I've got some of the pieces of that puzzle already, fitting them together is the trick.
I'm always thinking of stuff like that. What do you think?
I was going to post some pictures, but my phone is recharging. I'll put them up some time tomorrow, I promise.
