You’ll hear developers say in flash games that the polishing phase can take nearly as long as the actual game development itself.
I feel like that’s the point I’ve reached with my upcoming ebook on flash game sponsorships. Everything is starting to come together, and I can’t tell you how awesome it is to see all the work I’ve put in over the past months transform into the (nearly) finished book.
Based on your suggestions, I learned that the previous name I had picked for my ebook just didn’t cut it for you. It was too simple; not concrete enough. I took your advise to heart and set about brainstorming a new name,with the help of a few friends at Flash Game License.
The new name I came up with?
Getting Your Flash Game Sponsored
The new title is detailed, and conveys the essence of what the book is about without being too long.
Besides the number of developers and sponsors who have contributed quotes to Getting Your Flash Game Sponsored, I’ve been working with guest authors from Vortix Games and Berzerk Studio in the past month who have agreed to lend you their knowledge about the sponsorship process. These people are professionals in the flash games industry, and I’m happy to have them on board for sections about bidding, negotiations, and an in-depth case-study on a wildly successful flash game (whose name I can’t reveal just yet).
Guest authors aren’t the only people I’ve been working with. For those of you who have been reading my newsletter, you’ll know that I outsourced the design of my book’s cover to a graphic designer from Indonesia. I found him courtesy of Freelancer.com, an excellent resource for outsourcing that I may have to review in the coming days. I couldn’t be happier with the final cover; but you’ll have to sign up for my newsletter if you want to see it before the book releases in early October.
Expect more updates and sponsorship related articles in the coming weeks as I prepare for the launch of my ebook (and yes, you’ll be able to buy a hard copy).
