Chele Delgado Publishing
While making and distributing "Walo," we threw ourselves headfirst into the world of self-publishing
and somehow managed to make it out the other side intact.
During that process, it quickly became apparent that despite the immense progress that's been made to empower self-publishers and first time authors, there are still huge barriers to entry. Those barriers undoubtedly prevent many important stories and unique voices from reaching their audiences.
We'd like to use our expertise in order to help writers and illustrators– especially those with unique perspectives– to navigate and overcome those barriers.
Have a finished comic or manuscript that you're struggling to get onto paper and/or distribute? We're looking for creators to add to our roster!
As an artist on our roster,
we can help you:
We'll provide you with platforms to easily market and ship your work, both domestically and internationally, all without needing to maintain inventory.
Reach out to let us know a bit about your work if you're interested!
Describe your service here. What makes it great? Use short catchy text to tell people what you offer, and the benefits they will receive. A great description gets readers in the mood, and makes them more likely to go ahead and book.
Storytelling is a subjective art. But the act of researching, planning, writing, and rewriting can be an exhausting process, and sometimes we need fresh eyes to get valuable perspective on how our ideas are coming across to an audience that's going to be experiencing our story for the first time.
Do you have a draft (or even just an outline) for a book, comic, graphic novel, or screenplay? We'd be happy to take a look at it and provide a detailed summary of thoughts and suggestions.
We're experienced in story editing and writing in a professional capacity. More importantly though, we understand the subjective nature of genre, structure, and point of view, and reject any kind of one-size-fits-all approach to story structure– or even feedback. We've been on the receiving end of many unhelpful notes and seen the damage that groupthink can do to unique ideas.
We'll read your work and ask you a set of follow-up questions to find out more about the background, your intentions, your desired areas of feedback, and/or the story itself. Feedback is then provided in 2 parts: our objective and/or subjective emotional experience as a first-time reader, and our suggestions to help you further execute your intended vision.
Whether your work is intended for mass appeal or for a niche audience, our goal isn't to try to fit your story into a prearranged box– it's to act as a catalyst to help bring your idea to life while preserving your story's unique qualities.
