Beta Readers

​Hey guys, this a call to arms, of sorts. I’m looking for a few folks who would like to be test subjects, if you will. I’m in need of some Beta readers for a set of stories I’m writing. I need people who are willing to read my stuff, for free, before anyone else has the opportunity. The downside, they may be a little rough, your job as a beta would be telling me what are the last few things I need to fix before I send the manuscript off to, Max, my editor. Please, if your interested in helping me out send me an emil to hughiegibsonwriter@gmail.com and I’ll explain more expectations, don’t worry, it isn’t hard work, if you can read and can be honest with me about my work you are perfect for this job. Like and share this post as well. I can use all the eyes I can get on these things.

Becoming a publishing company?

I have been looking at a lot of publishing houses and companies and thinking about what I want to do with my writing, and with my partnership in Point Blank Comics. And I’ve decided that I’m really going to focus on trying to get an online team together to make these comics I’m writing and by expanding Point Blank Comics as a publishing house of webcomics,  ecomics (publishing through apps like comixology) and print on demand comics. An Indie Press if you will. I have experience in self publishing and I’ve got an idea and drive. I think it’s a gripping idea that will get artists excited.

The main reason for this is a simple one, almost all comic book publishers are closed to everyone but teams at the moment but the comic book genre is bouncing back and I feel the companies out there can’t handle the influx of people looking to jump into the business.

And, the mission is simple, I want to help cultivate talent and hopefully get us all noticed by one of the big boys.

I’ve already set up as a publishing company when I started self publishing a couple years ago, for tax and legal reasons, so why not bring people on as a team? I don’t see any reason to not do that.

New project

Started my latest comic series today. I’m loving the dark noir feel of this series.

Branded

When a man wakes up in a ditch next to a major interstate with no knowledge of who he is or who would want him dead he sets out on a quest aided by the only two clues he has, a strange brand on his right forearm and a uncanny ability to kill people with is bare hands with the slightest of ease.

His Father’s Eyes is a short story set in the Pine Bluff universe. Tony Corbett comes from a long line of Missouri lawmen but he is about to leave all that behind and run off the the Florida Keys. But just before the man sentenced to death for murder of Tony’s mother over 20 years ago is about to be executed skeletal remains are discovered near the home where his mother was last seen. Tony soon uncovers a conspiracy that casts doubt on his long held belief that his mother received justice and points to the unthinkable.

As Always, Thanks

Available everywhere

As writers we want our stuff to be seen and consumed. I made the mistake for over a year of allowing that market of potential readers to be  greatly reduced by allowing myself to be blinded by the royalty rates of Amazon and Kindle.

As of yesterday Adrenaline Issue #1: Gold Rush and A New Man, Jacob Mallory Mystery #1 are available at every ebook site including Barnes and Noble and Apple iBooks as well as Kindle.

I saw no need in keeping an exclusive with Kindle Direct Publishing when they were not selling enough copies to act as an incentive to stay with them.
