Well, there you have it- Book 2 of Tangled River if finally done. However, judging from Tanya’s rather leisurely way of storytelling, you can be sure there’s lot’s more to come before we reach the end.

Even though doing a webcomic was my initial idea, I always had publishing the book at some point in the back of my mind. Even though I’m grateful that Tangled River has a decent amount of regular readers, a core of which comment regularly, I would still like to find some way to reach those comic fans who don’t look for their comic fixes on the web.

I’m guessing there may be a few Tangled River readers out there who have some experience or knowledge of what it takes to get a book published these days, and I could use some guidance on what I should do next. I would like to publish these first two books in one 175 page color graphic novel- Tangled River Volume One.

It seems to my options are:

1) Send it out to various publishers and see if anyone is interested.
2) Publish it myself, using Createspace, that way getting it on Amazon as well.
3) Try a Kickstarter
4) Send it to Comixology

If anyone’s got some ideas or feedback, I’d love to hear it. In the meantime, I’ll try my best to stay on my regular page-a-week schedule, though I’ll need to spend some time in the next few weeks doing some proof-reading, re-drawing and cleaning up of Book 2.

One more thing. I was sad to hear about Project Wonderful closing down soon. I’ve been relying on them for all my web advertising, and I’ll need to find a new source. In the meantime, if you can occasionally click the vote on Best Webcomics box above, it would be really helpful.

Thanks again to all you readers.

Gina Biggs made a pretty successful webcomic to paperback transition with her comic "Red String" (her current main gig is "Love Not Found") and if you were to send her an email, I'm sure she would have helpful advice.

Pascalle Lepas is also just about to publish a paperback version of his webcomic "Wilde Life" and would also be happy to offer some helpful advice if you emailed him.

Awww, still waiting for licorice...

As for advertising theres web collectives (like spider forest), twitter, instagram, tumblr... There's also webtoons and its western clone (forgot the name) but the comics there tend to end up on manga scrapper sites. On the other hand if you make a little page with your webpage and info it could be free advertising. The top scrapper sites leave those on.
