Or, what to expect from us.
Succeeding creatively is hard,
and we don't have any magical solutions. But we do have something
that sets us apart from other publishers out there:
What's more, we're successful
that has pros and cons.
We make a living off our own work, so we won't be trying
to make a living off yours. The goal is for YOU to make
a living from it.
Awesome readers already know us, and
trust us enough to take a look at new things we have to
Experience is now on our side- everything
from writing and storycraft, to editing and artwork, to
social media, animation, ad campaigns, fulfilling orders,
merchandising, kickstarter boosting, and more.
We're busy with our own series. This means we wouldn't be
promoting your work full time. But, then again, neither would
We don't have the insider connections
of a huge company, and our titles are not in major retail
But I forgot to mention what I view as our
biggest pro- our overall philosophy. We love good stories- intense
plots, charismatic characters, engaging twists, lovingly crafted
art. And the two core ingredients to stories: Creators, and readers.
That keeps our focus in the right place.
We want to bring readers fantastic work. We
want to help creators present it. And we want to have fun. How,
precisely, do we aim to accomplish this?
It's pretty straightforward. When creators
sign with us they still own their work, their characters, and their
rights. They can still print their own books on demand, and sell
directly to readers if they like. They basically just give us permission
to *also* sell their work. And we have a nice batch of readers to
add to the mix.
Essentially, it's self publishing on steroids.
Why forfeit independence? We want to give
creators maximum latitude, a hefty signal boost, access to an established
customer base, and the credibility of an official publisher to cut
through the online clutter.
The hope is that long term, successful creators
can band together through Vivid, overlap readerships, and generate
a supportive venue greater than the sum of its parts.
We're Looking For.
