Yeah, to be honest it just seems like publishers don’t really mind about that stuff as much as the actual book. If you give them an amazing pitch, they’ll probably jump through a few hoops to help put your book out.
And thanks — I don’t have much Rival Schools or Shirow fanart! Just the couple of stuff that’s gone on here. I’m planning on playing RS again, maybe it’ll make me want to draw some more of it.
