It must be over a year ago now that Alex, the brains behind Phicno.com, contacted me via Twitter to see if I would be interested in selling and promoting 'Alexandra Forever' through Phicno, a platform he informed was tailored to help indie community.
I will admit that I didn't give it much thought at the time. As with many creators I hold down a full time job that pays the bills while being chief cook and bottle washer for the nearly full time hobby that is my passion. There's not a lot of spare time for exploring potential new avenues for distribution and promotion. My response was maybe, but I don't know when.
Alex was persistent, but not annoyingly so. Over the course of the next year, he would check in from time-to-time to see if I was ready to learn about Phicno. Very recently, that day finally arrived for me.
We chatted on the phone and he walked me through the site. It was obvious that he was proud and passionate about what he had created. His enthusiasm for helping the indie community combined with participation being free was enticing. I decided to work with Phicno. Alex provided a little technical support but otherwise my setup was very straight forward.
Beyond uploading my promotional comic book onto the site I don't have any affiliation with Phicno or Alex. I'm writing this blog post simply to help bring awareness to a platform that is legitimately trying to help true indie creators.
