Description Who needs gatekeepers when you can market your stories directly to your readers? Come find out what it will take to transform that manuscript into a marketable product. This panel of indie authors, small presses, and comic creators will tell you what resources are out there, scams to avoid, and what to expect. Come over to the Dark Side of indie publishing. We have candy…

On the panel along with:
Anna Erishkigal (moderator), Guest-of-Honor Ursula Vernon, Ian Randal Strock and Kate Kaynak.


Sun 10:00 AM - How To Make A Comic             Marina 3             

Description Everyone "knows how to make a comic" in theory but the reality of it isn't so easy. Let's talk printing quality, scripts, web hosting, gutters, borders, staples, CMYK vs RGB, and the alike. Bring your questions - our panel's got you covered!

I'm moderating this one! With Dan Mazur, Mildred, Ursula Vernon and Joey the First.


Mon 11:30 AM Build a Home Podcast/Audiobook Recording Studio    Marina 3

Description Come learn how to set up a budget home audio recording studio. How long does it take to record a book or create a podcast? What makes a book read-out-loud-able? What annoying audio narrator habits should you avoid? Once you've recorded them, where can you upload it for monetization or for sale? Our panel of experts will discuss the basics and what equipment will give you the biggest bang for your buck.


On the panel along with: Alexander Danner of "Greater Boston" (moderator), Guest-of-Honor Gene Turnbow of Krypton Radio, Kevin from "Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap" and Justine Graykin.
