publishing online
« on: June 24, 2014, 11:19:14 AM »
I am currently in the process of writing a graphic novel with my writing partner which we plan to publish online for free in weekly instalments.

Is there a particular platform that's most suitable? ie Flickr or facebook etc
Would it be better to set up an independent web page?
and does anyone know anything of the costs/difficulties involved?
Is there any other method in which to publish such a project?
What do other writers use?

Any advise would be appreciated!

You could probably set up a blog using google or something since that is free and just post your weekly installments there.

I'd be interested in knowing a lot about that too, from what I see artists set up their own web pages to post their webcomics. Sometimes they upload all pages online for free and then allow readers the option to buy it if they wish. Best results are when you set up your own domain, but I'm not sure how to do that  so you may need to find hosts, such as let's say Wordpress.

A facebook page is a good platform to advertise your work, but not exactly the main platform to push it forward.

I don't know about costs at all, but first and foremost you'd have to have things square with your partner because that can become problematic in the future if things go forward.

Amazon publishes ebooks? I think a digital version of your comic could be published there? But I haven't done much research on that to be honest.

As a writer I haven't been using other platforms apart from the usual. Deviantart, Twitter is also a nice place to set up as authors and mingle with other artists if you follow the right people.

Try checking out Not A Villain webcomic, Gunnerkrigg Court and Remind webcomic. The authors there published their graphic novels in one form or another. (Not exactly sure about NAV)
