As I explained before, I’m staying off the convention circuit for 2014. I plan to return in 2015 when I hit Anthrocon once more and check out at least one other one. However, I plan to overcome one of the biggest challenges that Sunnyville Stories faces.
Do you know what that is?
It doesn’t matter how good your work or your product is. You could have the best and most cutting-edge creation – but if nobody knows about it, nobody buys. Do you see what I’m saying?
What I lack is advertising! I’m planning to raise awareness of my work by running ad spots inside of publications. I’m in talks with a few specialty publications to run a few advertisements for Sunnyville Stories in 2015. They would mainly be publications like the Comics Journal or Self-Pub Magazine.
I’m also planning to run advertisements in convention programs like Further Confusion 2015 or Anthrocon 2015.
Another aim will be to get more press coverage. I want to see about the local newspaper here in Fargo; maybe they’d be willing to do a story about me and my work. I also need more blog coverage and anything else to raise awareness of Sunnyville Stories.
If you represent a blog, newspaper or publication that would like to do a story about myself or my creation, you can reach me via email at maxwestart(at)gmail.com or you can write to:
