Whazamo! State of the Art: Self Publishing
The Toronto Comics Arts Festival is the most jam-packed fiesta of cartooning talent you can find all cramed under one roof. This year, rather than just show you the festival, we wanted to take a close look at the methods and means contemporary cartoonists use to express themselves today in a two-part series called State of the Art.
The first part, Self-Publishing, explores the tenacity of print culture in the age of the web. Comics artists have been printing their own books for so long it's practically a right of passage. How do they reach their audience? Why is self-publishing considered fair game for comics and graphic novels but not for other forms of writing or literature? Are they simply crazy for doing this -- or do they know something we don't? Featuring creators such as: Adam Bourret (I'm Crazy), Jim Munroe (Sword of My Mouth), Tara Tallan (Galaxion) and Chris Kuzma and Patrick Kyle from the art collective Wowee Zonk!

A self-publishing enthusiast speaks
I've self-published two novels and made a success of both. Here's my perspective on self-publishing, looking past all the negativity and seeing something that authors and readers should be excited about.
The little English-language bookstore was a treasure-trove of ideas and excitement. We were an American family living in Mexico City for a few years, learning a new culture and exploring our neighborhood. My young kids were just beginning to love books and the Kindle had yet to be invented.
The store was called Libros, Libros, Libros and conveniently located next to a Santa Clara ice cream shop with the best coffee ice cream I’d ever had. We idled away a lot of Sunday afternoon there, buying Junie B. Jones for my daughter and Star Wars books for my son. W.E.B. Griffin’s nearly endless military and police fiction series for my husband. Design books so I could figure out how to decorate Mexican style.
The kids are grown and in college now, yet they still talk about our Sunday trips for books and ice cream. But the magic of bookstores is waning, it would seem. Dramatic changes in the publishing industry have impacted the way authors get their books to readers. Traditional book publishing and retail models have been battered by the rise of online retailers. The ebook revolution has given us more books to choose from, but all too often good books are lost in the virtual churn. Continue reading Are Bricks and Mortar Bookstores Going To Survive?→
Our guest today is Andre Phillip-Hautecoeur, author of One Exquisite Night in Paris and is self-published. He is here to give his experiences as an Indie author. Thank you for your time in answering our questions about getting published.
