Self-Publishing Advice & Consult

25


25 per session Virtual OK

I am a bestselling author and graphic novelist with a large number of creator-owned, self-published books. I will give you advice and consultation on how to self-publish your own book via a 30 minute skype video call.

I am a bestselling author and graphic novelist with several podcasts and thousands of followers on social media, SoundCloud, iTunes and more. Over 10,000 followers!

I love to tell stories that make you think. I might tell you an eerie horror story that gives you chills, leaving you spending a sleepless night staring at your closet. I might tell you a satire that makes you laugh until you cry. I might tell you a crime story, so suspenseful that it leaves you breathless, wondering if the detective will apprehend the killer before they strike again. I might tell you an erotica that will leave you breathless for…other reasons… But above all I want to tell you a story that makes you think: about life, love society…about real life issues that make you challenge your own beliefs, all through the safe and comfortable filter of fiction.

I have over 15 years of professional experience in writing and illustration for graphic novels and film. I have also had the privilege of being a part of the writing team for The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe and it’s one-shot spin-off; Deadpool Corps: Rank and Foul along with being involved with art production for Dark Horse Comics and Jack Lake Productions.

I currently spend most of my time working as a traditional novelist and teaching the next generation of artists and writers. I collaborate with some great art organizations and schools and conduct independent seminars, as well as serve as an adjunct professor teaching writing and digital illustration in the Sequential Arts program at Max the Mutt College of Animation, Art, and Design in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

About Mike Gagnon

I love making art and stories and make my living doing what I love every day. My passion is creating. I am currently focusing my energies on my owned creator-owned web comic and video game projects.... Some of my clients are recognized names; such as Marvel, Dark Horse, TwoMorrows etc. Specialties: comic books, movies, music, screen writer, journalism. Currently very much into repurposing and upcycling material that would normally go to landfill. I believe that we can use things like waste plastic and aluminum, repurpose and reuse them. I love taking what would be considered junk and turning it into real art and sculpture. Also interested in trading and bartering goods and services as much as possible to avoid giving money to mega-corporations who mistreat and under pay workers. Looking for like-minded people who want to change the system together. show more
