I try my best not to get too aggravated about things I can't change. But just received news from my printer that I will not be receiving my book before this weekend's Huntington Tristate Comicon. I busted my backside to get it done in time and now, I'm getting foiled by a scheduling snafu. I used a printer I have placed many novels with, so while not per se a comic or graphic novel printer, they gave me an awesome deal and an assurance of the turnaround I needed. Needless to say, I'm only using them this one time.
The book clocks in at 104 pages of story with supplemental pages in the back. I was looking so forward to holding it in my hands in addition handing it to those of you nice enough to purchase an earlier issue.
I suppose this is just one of those pitfalls of Indy publishing.
