[img_assist|nid=3115|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=250|height=225]Junkies, today is a big day in Siglerism. As reported in the Global Print Monitor, I have launched the future platform of world destruction. Say hello to my little friend: Dark Overlord Media! I have partnered with Audacity Events, a San Diego company run by Junkie AlphaGirl, to establish my own small press imprint. 

Dark Overlord Media Launches, Publishing Books By Established Online Personalities

San Francisco, CA (August 19, 2009) – New York Times best-selling author Scott Sigler today announced the formation of Dark verlord Media, a publishing house created to produce books and other properties for established online personalities.

“Entertainers are using the internet to establish their own audiences,” Sigler said. “You no longer need a big publisher or a network marketing machine generate a fan base. Dark ∅verlord Media wants to help those entertainers and journalists create tangible products that will make their audiences happy, then facilitate selling directly to those audiences.”

Awesome!

What exactly are the requirements, though, to getting published through DOM?

This is awesome!

Great idea Scott!! I hope this erally helps you and other podcast authors out there to get as much content produced as possible. Good luck!

How far along the path should I be?

This seems to be an excellent way to take advantage of the space and its potential. 

My initial question is, "How far along the path do you need to be?"  Meaning, do I need to be an established author with an already large contingent of listeners prior to working with DOM?  Or are you segmenting and tiering the business to address authors at different stages of their online careers?

Learn you some manners. Show a little respect when you're talking to a lady. Especially when you're talking to one as awesome as AlphaGirl.

I see you will be releasing The Starter in 2010

Will this be a PG version or an adult version.

Have you thought of doing a limited run of the books in Adult versions which junkies can Trade in CH's and Cash to purchase?

This is a great step forward for podcast authors and the FDO

New York Times best seller, now a publisher can't wait to see what Sigler does with this newfound power. If nothing else he can now print manuals for the plaid tanks on the cheap.

Awesome sauce!

Congrats to all involved!

OK, why is it that I can't open the full link.

I couldn't do it on my computer at home last night and I can't open it at work.  There is apparently a gremlin about!

 Awesome that you're

 Awesome that you're branching into the niche work. I'm wondering when I'll be seeing Dark Overlord Media books available on Barnes & Noble eBooks... so I can read 'em on my iPod Touch... or get them in chapter snippets... a text version of PodioBooks perhaps?
