    Diamond sent a letter

    and it was a rejection.

    Can't say I'm surprised at this point. I knew I was on the bubble. It still smarts. I will publish, but it won't be through diamond, unfortunately. So, I am forced to got to one of their competators and sink some $ into more marketing.

    As they say, not happy.

    In their letter they said the project shows potential, but does not have a strong enough marketing plan. Which is interesting, because in their materials they said NOT to worry about supplying a marketing plan (which I supplied ANYWAY) So, after almost THREE months, I'm not at square one, but at least I know WHAT I have to do, what's next.

    Not too happy, but I will show em'

    Shine on You crazy...

    Still Waiting.

    Diamond has yet to contact me since I last talked to them. Do I want to know what they have to say. Yah, I do. But. Well...I want them to say YES! At this point I just want to know yes or no. Its frustrating to have your fate in someone elses hands, but its the game we have to play. I just wish it was more clearly defined. If the process is 2-month plus to decide, fine. I'd be more "dissapointed" if they decided and they just haven't had to send me my rejection letter. The waitin' is the hardest part. But while there's hope, there's life. Come one diamond, come through. Shine on you crazy Diamond.

    Meanwhile, I'll be scanning in issue#7 to be colored next week. I'm so far ahead of my schedule, its crazy, but it gives me time to refine, so as they say, its a good thing.

    Still have some extra-bonus material to work out and draw, plus the websites, but those are largely done, just need the gmaes, etc...

    One more thing...

    I DID submit my book to SEVERAL comic book companies (publishers, let me be clear, not diamond, I have at least a dialogue with them) and got NO RESPONSE. I have to say, not cool. How much time does it take to send an email, or in the case of my submissions, send a letter in the self-addressed stamped envelopes I INCLUDED in my submissions package. Come one man, form letter whatever. It was like two years ago, be cool, we all started off in the same place, at the bottom. We should all try to remember what it was like to be rejected, to put ourselves out there. It takes a lot to create something, it takes more to submit it to people to judge it. Thanks to the MINORITY who replied back, I do appreciate it. I'll go it on my own, but It would have been nice to work with some of you. Maybe next time.

    Still Waiting

    For Diamond. I'm trying REAL hard to be patient. I go between pessimism and optimism. Right now, I'd just like to know thumbs up, or thumbs down. It will be the two month count by the end of this week since my submission was accepted, so just patiently waiting to hear from the good folks at Diamond. I hope I get in, but at this point, I need to know SOON, because I need to get all my ad buys, games and contests in place for the pub date.
