#137: Spidey’s Got Bright Eyes

May 9, 2007

Notes from the Manager

No, I don't think Spider-Man 3 "sucks," unlike a lot of excessively vocal, whiny fanboys on the interweb. Although there are several really stupid plot points that drag down the movie for me, it was definitely fun to watch: the action is phenomenal, and most of the cheesy stuff is flat-out hilarious (I actually loved the widely-reviled Saturday Night Fever sequence). I only mention this, because every so often, I'll get an e-mail from a reader that forces me to explain (yet again) that my characters are not mouthpieces for my own opinions — even Jason, who does admittedly parrot my own opinions of movies most often, but still not all the time....

Anyway.

For more of my actual thoughts on Spidey 3, download the latest episode of The Triple Feature Talkcast, featuring myself, Tom Brazelton (Theater Hopper) and Joe Dunn (Joe Loves Crappy Movies)! This one is especially fun, because of all the back-and-forth between us. For once, none of us agreed on a movie! Joe loved it; Tom hated it; and I fell somewhere in the middle, though I definitely leaned more towards the "loved it" end of things than the "hated it" end....

Tell me a story. (Looking for a prose writer for an eBook single.)

Sunday, March 29, 2015

I want to take a foray into electronic publishing.

I am looking for a (prose) writer to provide a short story, novella or non-fiction story that I will turn into an iBooks-formatted eBook for sale (in the iBookstore), released under my Chase Sequence publishing imprint. Chase Sequence published Multiplex: There and Back Again, which won the 2014 IPBA Gold Medal for Best Graphic Novel/Drawn Book–Humor/Cartoon, so technically it is an award-winning publisher.

There is no limitation with regard to genre, but I will say that my taste in prose leans strongly toward literary fiction and non-fiction, and toward characters, psychology, and well-written prose over plot. (Margaret Atwood is my favorite writer.)

What to Submit: A pitch for a 30+ page, prose short story/novella/non-fiction piece. No comics — no picture books. If you have already written the short story, great, but it must be previously unpublished. Please include links or URLs to a resumé and examples of previous published work would be helpful, to give me a feel for your voice.

Send questions (or submissions) to gordon at multiplexcomic.com.

The Terms: No money up front, but 50% of the cover price in exchange for one year of exclusivity (from the date of publication). The writer retains all other rights to their story. These will be sold via iBooks only (at least at first), which means that Apple will get 30% and I will get 20% for my contributions: I will edit the story; I will design and produce the eBook; I will illustrate a cover for it (or hire someone else to, if I’m not the best fit for the story); I will help promote it.

Please submit your pitch before April 30, 2015. I will notify the selected writer(s) I am interested in working with as soon as possible after that.
