So, as everyone knows, I’m wearing many hats, to produce my properties (Favor of Ares, Blood Matters, and True Victory) in several different forms of media. Right now I do the following:
Novel: writer, editor, production supervisor, marketing executive, agent
Light Novel/Ranobe: writer, artist, production supervisor, letterer, marketing executive, agent
I would like to see each series as a comic book, manga, and an anime. In which, right now, I do the following.
Producer, Art Director, Character Designer, Editor, Graphic Designer. I love doing what I do, but I realized now, I need to really start getting more help. I already paid an editor, who edited the first three chapters of Lust, and a graphic designer to produce the cover of novel. However, as an artist, I don’t have the patience, to do the sequential art for the comic or manga, so I will be flexing my editorial muscles, to find a comic book writer, penciler, inker, colorist (I might do this myself, lol, just can’t get enough work), and letterer(again might do it myself). For the manga, which is a little harder to find, since most managka’s do their own work, is finding a mangaka, who is willing to do the work. This means also finding a translator, so I can have the light novel and manga printed in Japan.
With that being said, just like with my editor, I will be using Fiverr.com. Now, of course you get what you paid for, but my general experience with the site has been good. Brian Kaufman, the editor I mentioned earlier, has done some great work for me. The same with my graphic designer. Here’s hoping that I find a comic book writer and a mangaka, along with a comic book penciler and inker. Wish me luck!
