Around a week or so ago I got my first official board game rejection.
Despite how that sounds, this is actually pretty good news.
You see, I have submitted my designs to publishers in the past. But no one has ever actually bothered to tell me that they don’t want it. Usually they just ignore me.
Heck one company, which will remain nameless, expressed interest, told me they liked my game and wanted to run with it, and then never spoke to me again.
And so an actual honest-to-goodness rejection letter is actually a step up.
This time they cared enough to tell me to buzz off.
I’m still waiting to hear from some other potential publishers and I’m also looking into the possibility of self-publishing, either by making it a downloadable file that the customers print themselves or by actually shelling out the bucks for a print run.
Of course, this means that I would have to also find an artist to make all of the illustrations. So if you know an illustrator that works cheap and can follow instructions, please encourage them to contact me.
Also, if you know anything about the Board Game Industry, or just happen to own a publishing company, feel free to email me about this.
Details about my new project are here.
