As word has gotten out about The Illustrated Section, interest from artists continues to grow and grow. I am adding new books to the site on a regular basis. It makes me so happy to see so many creative and ambitious artists making stuff and putting it out there.
If you are familiar with the submission process for the site (if you’re not, go here to read the guidelines) you know there is a small flat fee to list a book here. I do this to help pay for the costs of the site and as an alternative to taking a percentage of the artist’s sales. Well, now I am going to provide a way for artists to list their book here on the site without paying that fee.
Here’s the details:
Buy at least $4 worth of books from the store, and list your book here for FREE.
The normal fee for listing a book for sale here is $5.99. Now, you can pay less AND get some comics.
My reasoning is, the money I receive from contributing artists mostly goes towards advertising and trying to find customers to buy the content being submitted. This would essentially do the same thing, except now you get to support the creators directly instead of handing your money over to me. I have no problem giving that up if it means more people are reading and checking out the awesome content here on the site.
And as a reminder, once your book is listed on the site, I won’t be taking any commissions or percentages from your sales other than the usual PayPal fees. You get paid for everything you sell on a monthly basis.
If you are an artist and are interested in selling a book here, all you need to know is on the submissions page.
The Fine Print
Here are the general rules about this new policy:
- Contributors must provide an order # with their submission so I can confirm that they have bought some books. Order total must equal $4 or more.
- An order # can be used only once for this deal, even if the order total is higher than $4. If you want to list another book under this deal, you’ll have to buy more comics or books.
- It doesn’t matter how old your order is. If you bought books three months ago, you can still use it to pay for your listing fee today.
