My name is Bijhan and a real life publishing company is going to print my first novel. It’s a science fiction / fantasy adventure with lots of characters who are gay, trans, and/or not white. It’s also set in the mid to late 1800s, so it has a “Wild West” feel.
I have created a card game, video game, and a soundtrack album to go with the book. Art commissioned to create the card game will also be used in conventional merchandise, such as shirts, posters, and mugs. These products will be launched in co-ordination with the book, with advertisements in the book sending readers to the associated products.
Only problem: I am terrible at marketing.
I don’t have any money up front, but what I can offer is a portion of the profits. Right now I’m getting 100% of nothing, so I’m happy to give up a meaningful portion to someone who can help make this a success.
To help you see what the project is like, if you PM me your email address I can share with you an unedited manuscript of the book (we’re still making edits at the moment), concept art for the card game, a working version of the video game (it only needs new art, but the programming is all there), and some unmixed demo tracks from the soundtrack album.
If you have any questions, or recommendations as to who or what might help, please let me know in the comments.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and I appreciate any and all help and advice.
