I'm also trying to punch up my music act. I'm trying to get to the point where I can play live. The whole reason I want to do that in the first place is so that I will have another place to hustle books. Just think, if I work real hard on my act and at least play a lot of open mics, and maybe get an actual gig somewhere, I can maybe sell 35-40 books a year instead of my usual 25-30 books a year. If I get a gig I would hit the streets again and hand out info so I could feel like even more of a jackass.
One of the main benefits of doing to the flyer thing on Red River is that I pared down what I'm committed to working on. I shelved a whole new comic title that I'd been planning on doing for months. I'm glad that I did that. Comics are hard. The Richy Vegas title takes a lot of commitment all by itself. I decided the first night after being out on Red River to just ditch the new title.
