Comic Event Organisers Please Take Note!
Do I get invited as a guest to these events? NO!
Do I ever get offered a table at these events for the promotional work I put in for them? NO!
Do I ever succeed in getting a table at these events? NO!
What do I get out of all the work I put in for these UK events? Absolutely nothing. Organisers seem to think they are doing me a favour by deeming to grace me with their press releases.
No. It stops. Time for me to be 'selfish' -I'm a person who publishes -biggest publisher of Independent comics in the UK. Yes, but I don't know so-and-so. I get invited to vote in the Harvey Awards and others -and I get invitations from outside the UK.
All my years promoting UK comics, the Small Press, my work, my publishing means nothing to a convention organiser which, let's put it mildly, is a bloody outright insult. So why should their events mean anything to me?
From now on there are no more freebies -and please don't say you never saw this posting as its going out to you by mail also. £20.00 a posting of a Press Release from an event organiser or you can pay £50.00 each year to have all your PRs on site rather than individual charges.
