Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience full of creative people who don?t realize they?re allowed to be good businesspeople, it?s just not expected by editors and publishers who plan to take advantage of their usual naivete? in the NEW new media capital of the world? St. Petersburg, Florida!
I have always made my living as a freelance writer. First came fanzines, then newspaper articles, then magazine articles, and now mostly books.
Along the way, I have relied on a short handful of ?How-to? books that have been extremely helpful in educating me in freelancer etiquette as well as where to find editors, publishers, and agents.

I?ve also dug in deep for tips on getting paid properly and on time and how to deal with the occasional weasel who tried to screw me out of a paycheck.
When Christopher Hart, who may be the world?s best-selling author of how-to cartoon and draw manga books, told me he had published a book called How to Get Published As A Manga Artist: Everything You Need to Turn Your Passion Into A Career, I figured it was a good idea for a highly specialized freelance artist but was skeptical that someone as experienced as I could learn something new.
I was right… and wrong.
While How to Get Published As A Manga Artist is aimed at a particular type of independent creative person, its lessons can work for artists and writers producing original material for any field. Of particular interest to me is its advice about the rapidly evolving world of self-publishing.
Whether you are just starting out or, like me, have years of experience as a freelancer, I heartily recommend you get this book. It will pay for itself overnight by the knowledge you will gain.
