Charmy's Army in "Long Overdue" Strip 6


It has been a whole week since I emailed by submission to The Washington Post Writer's Group. I don't expect to ever hear back of course. I've sent so many submissions over the years and no syndicate ever responds. Honestly, I would just love one of the form letters I hear about from other cartoonists. I refuse to believe my strip is so back that the syndicates won't waste their time with a form letter.

My goal for October is to have submissions out to each of the major syndicates. If once again, I do not hear back from at least one syndicate by February of next year, I am going to begin working on one of three other strips I have in my brain. I hate to think Charmy, Weaver and Frenchy would be shelved, but after five years I may have no other choice.

How can you save Charmy's Army? You can follow me everywhere I am marketing my strip...

PATREON - This site even allows readers to pledge a monthly monetary amount to my strip. These pledges help me buy all my supplies and pay my fees which run about $100 per month.... yes, per month. Stripping is expensive.

TAPASTIC - This is another site that allows readers to pledge a monthly amount to cartoonists. Unfortunately, you must have over 600 followers to be considered for funding. I have 27 so I have a long way to go before I am promoted to receive funding from pledges.

GO COMICS - This site is also a syndicate!!! I pay $100 a year to be on this site. They do not even know I am here. I have 42 followers and I get around 5 or 6 looks each day. Those are terrible stats. I really could use readers to create an account here (free), add me to their collections, and leave me daily comments. This would show Go Comics that I have a great strip that people want to read. This site is part of the syndicate Universal UClick. Being picked up would mean possibly getting into a newspaper or two... or twenty...

FACEBOOK - My only success story. Liking my page here will get you in with my biggest gathering of readers. Working on reaching 1,000 active readers!!!

Follow me here, there and EVERYWHERE!!!

Thanks,
Davy
