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.

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 beĀ  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.
