Seeing as this is where our journey began, I thought I’d jump back into the Millarworld forum to announce our new Kickstarter.
I joined this forum back in 2015 when Millarworld first announced the talent search. I didn’t win, but I got some constructive feedback, which along with stories from other creators here, inspired me to have a crack at manifesting something.
So we’re super pumped to present…
Milky issue #1 (of 4) - a fresh comedy/sci-fi comic book
Synopsis: A nervous milkman leads the ignorant residents of Crafton Hill in a daring rescue after his lifelong crush is abducted by aliens…
You can check out the Kickstarter here: https://kck.st/2wMx1pH There’s a trailer that shows off a lot of the artwork and, if you’re feeling flush, you might like to chip in a little. We really appreciate any support.
You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter if that’s your jam.
There’s been a lot to learn in this process (and I’m still learning). I’ve been absent from this forum while in creative-mode, but now I’ve got a bit of experience behind me, I feel like perhaps I’ve got a bit more to contribute.
So if you want any advice on launching a Kickstarter for your book (or can offer any) please drop a comment below or message me directly.
And please share your Kickstarter or self-published book experiences in this thread - especially if it’s a product of this community like Milky.
While this post obviously serves as a bit of self-promotion, I do hope it inspires anyone who’s having a hard time getting something made as this forum did for me. Whether it’s about funding, self-doubt, or you just don’t know where to start… feel free to give me a shout. I’m not an expert by any means - but I’m more than happy to help anyone that asks if I can.
You don’t need permission to create a thing. Just work hard. Ask for help. Build a team (pay your artists). Learn from failure. And make it happen.
Oh, go on then… Here’s a sample page for you. It’s page 15. If you want to know what happens before or after, you know what to do.
Have an inspiring day!
