I am really excited about this brand new convention coming to Baltimore because I know how hard the creators have been working to get this off the ground. On April 27, 2018 at the Baltimore Convention Center, Jamie Broadnax of Black Girl Nerds and Robert Butler, CEO of The Black Geeks are joining forces to bring you the first annual Universal Fan Con. You know what this means?
Indie scifi novel and comic book publisher Rosarium Publishing announced April 6 that it is raising funds via crowdfunding to help pay for production of a minimum of 10 more titles this year. The campaign, entitled Rosarium Publishing: The Next Level, has set out to raise $40,000 on Indiegogo to cover the costs of offset printing and marketing of fiction in the science fiction, children’s, crime, steampunk, satire and comics genres.
Rosarium Publishing is an independently run, minority-owned publishing company specializing in speculative fiction, comics, satire and a touch of crime fiction. The company was founded in May 2013 by science fiction/fiction writer Bill Campbell with a focus on multicultural stories told from the voices of diverse artists. The publisher currently supports over 40 artists and writers from all over the world and currently has over 18 fiction novels and over 20 comic book titles. You can find Rosarium Publishing titles at Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Comixology and PeepGame Comix. Bill Campbell had one goal when he started Rosarium: to bring true diversity to publishing so that the high-quality books and comics the company produces actually reflect the fascinating, multicultural world we truly live in today.
