GrayHaven Update and Sale

We’re here. We’re here!

It’s been a hectic and busy year for a lot of the editors here so updates have been few and far between so for that, we apologize.

While some of our planned releases and open submission period have had to be pushed back more times than we would have liked, all of the current planned books are still in production.

I’ve discussed it before but the major challenge this year was to update the online ordering system to ensure those who paid money for their books received their books in a timely manner. Even one mistake was too many so there was a focus on making the system a bit more streamlined and I’m happy to say it’s worked out very, very well.

The second major challenge was to make sure the books we were putting out were of the best quality. In previous years we’d put out close to two dozen issues which was a minor miracle but the content suffered because of it. This year there was a concentrated effort to slide the schedule accordingly to ensure the books being published were the best they could be. From DOBER-MAN 2 to LIL KAIJU and the KAIJU OGN I think we’ve put some of our best work out in 2015 and will continue to strive for the best even if it means decreasing output. Our readers deserve the best.

Lastly we wanted to really try and give back to creators who have done so much and corrected and re-instituted a comp policy for creators. Again, we’re happy to say that due to Erica’s efforts that has worked wonderfully.

The remaining weeks of 2015 will be devoted to completing production on YOU ARE NOT ALONE 3. We set an aggressive publication for this book and didn’t meet it, even with the prep time and having the book 90% completed before the Kickstarter launch. We also have a few of the anthologies ready for production.

Appropriately enough, being Black Friday, we’re going to launch a HUGE sale on our books. 50% OFF EVERYTHING!

Everything from older books already marked down to newer books to our over-sized OGNs. When you place your order into the system, just put in the code ‘blackfriday’ no spaces and it will automatically take off 50%. Be forewarned, the system doesn’t like orders over 10 books so if you are ordering 12 titles you will have to break it up into two orders (six and six, eleven and one, whatever) but both will still be discounted. It’s our way of saying thank you to readers as well as getting some rid of some excess stock.  Better still, the 50% off sale will run through December 6th or until supplies run out.

The anthologies will continue to come out. We love the idea of having books where new creators are given a chance to do a short and get published. There’s a sense of pride in knowing we’ve helped more than 250 creators get their work published in a comic for the first time and we don’t want to lose that. New anthology themes will be announced in the coming weeks with our next Open Submission period. The focus in 2016 will be on self contained material though. Unfortunately the anthologies just don’t sell as much as they used to for us. It’s difficult enough self publishing mainly black and white books. We will be trying to offer creators with longer story ideas an opportunity to put those books out through us though, details of which will be revealed soon enough.

There are a lot of things we want released and able to give you all. I’m not a patient person so delays frustrate the hell out of me. But we’re hoping that pulling back and taking some time will allow for better reading experiences and better opportunities for creators who are a part of what we do.

Thank you for reading, enjoy the sale and have a wonderful Holiday Season!
