Hello:

Saw that you posted this and went in search of a few links that might help the move the discussion along. As the proprietor of a publishing imprint that was registered in 2013, I'm truly interested in what others think of the company, as well.

Bloomberg Business Company Overview of InkShares, Inc.

The Wall Street Journal - Speakeasy "‘Star Wars’ Writer Gary Whitta Journeys to the Future of Publishing"


Digital Book World Nerdist Launches Collection on Inkshares


GIGAOM "Inkshares wants to create a hybrid of traditional book publisher and crowdfunded digital platform"


Comic Con 2015 Event - "The Crowd: How Creatives Are Using New Means to Connect with Their Audience" - which I provide merely as an aside.

I suppose my questions are: who's the publisher of record? You or Inkshares? Who owns the rights (including copyright)? You or Inkshares? I did a search (albeit a quick one) and didn't find this information.

Thanks for giving me more things to consider.
Is there independent black owned publishing companies out there that new science fiction or graphic novel writers should take a closer look at?


SUGGESTIONS:  Check out the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America Website.  They have a section titled, "Writers Beware."   Also, write or email the Library of Congress Section on Copyrights.  Request them to send to you the information on Copyrights.  Many lawyers have this data and could be charging their clients money for information that is free to the public. It is a large folder on copyrights with the book on copyrights. You can copyright toys, music, and hundreds of other types of date.  There are at least twenty to thirty types of detail copyright information that no one should be paying lawyers for.  These are taxpayers money producing this information.  Donot be so concern seeking out African-American Publishers.  Seek out publishers who are seeking new writers. Years ago, there were African-Americans who were published by Black Publishers and never received royalty payments.  I advised never submit manuscripts to any publishing company that donot pay royalty payments.  Remember the color of money is GREEN.  Thirdly,  try to attend writing conferences of three to five days of your areas of specialty.  Since I am into fantasy and science fiction conventions, those are the ones I try to attend.  There are agents, publishers, editors looking for new authors.  In todays compettions the more manuscripts you have the more notice and higher advances you may attain.  Also, contact the Library of Congress and request the large folder on "copyrights."  You should never pay for free information on copyrights when in fact this large folder is funded by taxpayers money.  I make sure that I receive this folder every other year.  Again, when you are not in the know, people will or can take economic advantage over you.  Fourthly, GOD gave us these talents and Brothers and Sisters must do research in the areas of their specialty.  I will be attending the World Fantasy Convention next year.  There is limited membership attendance due tot he facts that there will be agents, editors, publishers there along with authors.  I can go on and on but time is now limited for me.  Take care everyone.

Now that The Mouse has made it legit to say or think, "Black / African derived super hero" folks can rise up and openly participate indie Black Age of Comics' creators and their continued lines of amazing products. After decades of being "Indie Black adverse" many can now deal in legal Black-Money by collecting and gifting indie-Black Age products.  Putting them in the hands of so many hungry deserving fans and students. The Mouse has come a long way since his early minstrlal shimy days to rise and rule. Its nice to see him open up the door. 

Now lets see who is willing to leave the plantations of the mainstream.

As we have been saying for over a decade.... "Indie today: Black Age Forever!…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
