Your feedback requested..

Love to get your thoughts on a strip I created awhile back. Will post on off days.

  3. Wow-Thanks MMM and Brian! I sent it awhile back to one or two syndicates, I believe. Any contact you'd recommend? You can see a whole batch @ http://ahcartoons.blogspot.com/

  5. Have you tried the Washington Post Writers Group? That's my syndicate and they are great to work with. Amy Lago is my editor there.

  7. Brian,
    Should I contact Amy directly? I could send her a link to my http://ahcartoons.blogspot.com/ Feel free to send her the link as coming recommended by you would get more eyeballs. I think it's strange that being a Judeo-Christian country we really don't have many comic strips that deal with the subjects of Heaven and Hell, etc. Anna Hosanna could fill that gap in a sort of Calvin and Hobbes way, I believe. Love to chat more with you.

  8. Jon, here's a link to the Writers Group's submission guidelines: http://www.postwritersgroup.com/comicsubmissionguide.html
    They accept samples via email or USPS. You can mention my endorsement in your cover letter if you'd like. Tell Amy I said I think it's a winner.

  10. Brian-Just sent a letter and samples to Wash Post. Hope it goes well!..Tell Amy to look for it.

  11. I wouldn't limit myself to the Wash Post, Jon. They're my first choice, but why not shop it around? Maybe they'll get into a bidding war over your strip.

  12. Brian-I know I've sent it to at least 2, maybe 3 syndicates already and been rejected. I'd love to run it by you. Maybe with some help/mentoring from a veteran like you I'd have more of a chance. Got an email address? Mine's honestjonbooks@gmail.com. Regardless, I sure appreciate what you've already done to encourage me.

  13. I'll be happy to do what I can, Jon, but I don't know any magic formula for getting syndicated. In my case I think it was dumb luck. You can email me at picklescomic@sbcglobal.net
