TIP 8: Graphic Novels...
 

Many major publishers seek new talent each year.  e.g. You don't need an agent to email Rick Chillot at Quirk Books in Philadelphia
with your concept and work samples, 
because he is currently seeking a quirky new series publicly:

Handy Hints:
1) DON'T send *anything* to any major publishers until *after* you've finished your graphic novel.  Or else they may take your basic concept and assign it to an artist in their stable who can produce it faster than you. 

2)  DO follow the submission guidelines for each publisher, because if you can't follow basic instructions they reject you instantly, without even looking at your work.

I'm just bumping this old topic, because I'm seeing a lot of questions out in the facebook groups about this over the past few weeks, so it may help others here, since not much has changed, and it might help you too, if you're interested.

Bleetz:
Thanks again Bleetz for thinking of me. I've not made any moves on it as of yet. Like many artists, I'm comfortable following
 my imagination and not so much working with businessmen types. I sincerely want to to do this but I'm a bit uncertain as to
my ability to  meet deadlines. I've never worked with them and I'm a bit fearful of letting the publisher down. I'm gathering the
courage to leap the shark and I'll probably be fine once I do, but standing on the edge, it's the fear of failure in a world I know
nothing about that is making the leap difficult.

I, so much, appreciate your help and encouragement, and I'm determined to make sure your efforts in my behalf aren't
in vain. I've been re-reading your 10 steps in anticipation of making the jump and I will make my leap very soon.
As we used to say, onward into the FOG!

I can't thank you enough for your invaluable advice. Smile

Cool pete
