I've been working on a a story for a couple of years. After some hicups with artists and off the back of some Steve Forbes and Calvin Camp help, I've re-written the story for the better (I feel).
When I knew where I wanted to go with it I made further adjustments based on the policy of the publisher I'm planning to approach. They have a policy to publish 3-4 part mini series only and so I have cut my 12 issue and focused on the the 1st four parts with the scope to expand it.
I'm hoping by making the pitch and product bespoke I will stand a better chance. I read that it was easier to pitch a mini as the publisher sees it as a low risk option. I also read that stories should be kept (when possible) in self contained (yet linked) part. So that if the series is ongoing it will be easier to split the run and re sell as TPB's.
