So here's the thing: I have a project that in the back of my mind, was always a graphic novel project for tweens (specially tween girls.). But I write tween TV, not tween graphic novels. So I tried to make it a TV show, but it didn't work. So I thought, maybe a movie. But it didn't work. Because it's a graphic novel.
It's not just some nebulous idea in my head: a treatment exists, along with a mini-bible.
I have my people ("people?" PEOPLE? I don't know how to write that without sounding like an asshole) looking into Some Things and I am doing research of my own (which is mostly just looking at who's putting out tween girl books and noting the publisher) but I also know that I have Tumblr-peeps in the comic book world who may have some advice or HEY LOOK AT THIS COMPANY.
Here's where I am NOT at this point: I am NOT at the Kickstarter/hiring my own artist/self-publishing/etc. I do not have the time to manage a Kickstarter campaign plus an entire process. I understand that writing a graphic novel is time-consuming; I write for a living (no, really) and writing is time-consuming. If I can't get a nibble and my schedule opens up, a Kickstarter might be in the future. But I'd like to explore other options first.
Does this make me sound like a shithead? Maybe I'm a shithead. I'm really at the collecting-info part of the process. While I've written and pitched 938472934 TV show bibles , I've never pitched or written a graphic novel bible. I don't even know if those exist? The comic book world is a total mystery to me here in TVLand.
