Maze-ing Maze 329
Maze 329: Today I hit 50,000 page visits for the blog! So that was a great accomplishment for the project. Thanks to every single person who has spent time viewing the maze madness that I’ve spilled all over the world-wide web.
I also have a new project with http://www.grammarmancomic.com/ I will be completing a series of 5 mazes that are geared toward helping people to learn english. Although I like to use my mazes to educate and inspire people this project can help promote my art outside of the US.
Day 2 mission agent/publisher. I spent about an hour collecting agent contact info. Then I started the process of sending out query letters to the list. I even got rejected 10 minutes after sending one out. I must have caught the agent at their computer. She loved the samples but didn’t feel they could be “sold at all” to the children’s industry. I have to admit I probably didn’t send her the best examples. Hours later I got another rejection with the agent saying she may want to work with me in the future however. So that one more NO to add to my list, but oh yea I no longer accept NO. So its on to the next! And a maybe that I can live with and use as a positive to keep me going.
I also spoke to an author who has become a friend. She put several of my mazes in her book which will be published in the next few weeks. She gave me some great ideas as well.
I also spent some time on Linkedin trying to connect with people in the industry. So the second day was strong but I think that with 28 days remaining I need to come with stronger more aggressive tactics. I don’t know what yet but my marketing efforts need to be as unique and eye opening as my art. Again to all the visitors who enjoy my work please feel free to tell the world about my mission!
