I’ve met deadlines for over a decade, but with my own projects on Indiegogo they tend to be a few months late every time. Why?
Because I’m one guy doing the work of a publisher. I don’t have a creative team other than editing and lettering sometimes. Colorists costs money to have it done right. I’d hand that off but profit margins are tight in this business. Speaking of business, there’s promotion, shipping, thinking about side projects—as a business (I’m an employee of my LLC) I’m trying to find ways to keep my modest payroll going.
This isn’t a big production. This is small mom and pop endeavor. I’m getting better. In general, my audience is patient. Which I’m more grateful for than you all know.
Well, time to get back to work.
