Publisher Noob Helper
« on: December 02, 2014, 03:49:17 PM »
I am currently in the process of becoming a digital publisher.
I am working on the website and working out detail stuff with Amazon.
I would like to be known as a publisher that helps the unknown.

I lack experience and products, so I cannot start yet. As a wanna-be publisher I want MR’s help, by letting me help anyone in MR. So if anyone would like help with anything let me know and I will try my best, and hopefully make some Manga/comics/or some crazy combination of the two.

That's pretty cool man, I don't see many members that want to focus on the digital publishing side of things. I'll keep you in mind :)

Since you're on the internet, I suppose Google will be your best friend for now on that topic, since I don't know if anyone has too much information on publishing other than the process. Once you gain some knowledge, might I ask that you come back here and share it with us so others interested in publishing can hear about it? It might be a lucky break for us all.

Well, I have done some digging. It really all depends if you want to self-publish or go through a publisher.
I thought going through Amazon's Kindle Publishing would be a good idea, but unless you can market your manga a ton you aren't going to make a profit at all. Unless you get lucky.

I did find something that looked interesting though. It is called endpaper. It is a ebook tool for either self-publishing or for publishers. I requested more info from their company. From what I have read though, it is a cloud-based software that you can upload your ebooks and sell them through codes you generate. Your ebooks will even be accessible on any device. In addition, you can get code cards if you want to sell physical codes in a retail store.

I'll post more when I gather more info.
