Wednesday Wrap-up: 5/3/17

Big shake-ups here at Old School Evil this week.  Unfortunately, the image above is not one of them yet. 

The decision has been made to self-publish Old School Evil.  The agent search, though short, has been extremely disheartening.  I haven't come to this decision lightly, but I want to have creative control over the project, including cover and other art assets and I feel this is the best way to go.  It'll still be a while before I'm ready to publish though - I've decided I want to go through another draft or two to clean things up and add some stuff in.  I think in the end, the book will be that much better for it.  I'm also hoping to get into a critique group that covers finished novels so I can make sure it's totally ready.

Because of the changes to the plan for Old School Evil, a few things have been cut as well.  As I originally envisioned making a toyline and a webcomic that used the toys, I realized that was way too much work at this time and have put it on the backburner.  I would still love to make the toys someday, but I think I'd prefer to wait and see if I receive any amount of success with the book before I try it.  Maybe I'll do some Heroclix-type figures before stepping up to full-sized action figures, but that's still going to be a while.

I'm still planning to finish the show's various titles and logo images, but I think it'll be a little while before I finish any more of them.  I need to rework a number of the logos I've already shared here.  And probably redo that terrible Flashback page.
