For this week’s #webcomicschat I thought I’d borrow from Bob Mayer (@Bob_Mayer) who recently published an article on his blog titled “If I Were A Newly Self-Published Author, What Steps Would I Take To Succeed?” It’s a well written article that gives great advice to anyone involved in self-publishing. Even though it’s meant for writers I think it applies to webcomic creators as well. One of the main points I take away from it is the idea of persistence. It is rare indeed that a self-publisher becomes an overnight success. It is more likely instead that success comes after long, steady persistent effort.
