Self Publishing with Lars Martinson: Parts 1-8 [of 8]

Categories:  Features

Here it is folks (finally!) — the complete “How to Self-Publish a Graphic Novel in 8 Hard Steps” presentation as delivered by Tōnoharu creator and Xeric winner Lars Martinson at the 2010 Graphic Novel Writing & Illustrating Conference sponsored by the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, MN. Thanks, as always, for your patience.

I’d deliver my own “How to Video Edit and Serialize a Slide Show Presentation in 8 Hard Months” but it would just sound like whining.

Here’s a LINK to first installment with details on the program. You’ll find the videos for steps 1-8 below the jump.

STEP ONE :: intro + draw comics for ten years

STEP TWO :: put yourself in a good position financially

STEP THREE :: research

STEP FOUR :: create your book

STEP FIVE :: procure a xeric grant

STEP SIX :: get your book printed

STEP SEVEN :: secure distribution

STEP EIGHT :: market your book

    Thanks for putting this together, Sarah!

    Oh and by the way, if any self-publishers out there feel like I missed the mark on any of my advice, please leave a comment! I certainly don’t profess to be an ultimate authority on self-publishing, so I’d love to hear about other approaches, etc.
