50 AMP PRODUCTIONS and RE-LOGIC: Announcing the “Terraria” Graphic Novel Series

50 AMP’s first title, “Terraria,” based on one of the top 10 best-selling video games of all time, created by RE-LOGIC, coming in September!

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES, August 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Founded by Grant Alter, 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS is a new publishing/entertainment company that will be bringing some of the hottest properties to comics and graphic novels. The first project coming from 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS is based on “Terraria,” which has sold over 45 million copies.

The collaboration between 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS and RE-LOGIC is not the first time “Terraria” has ventured into comics. In 2016, DC Comics released a one-shot “Terraria” comic book which was sold with two miniature figures. The comics were sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us, where they immediately sold out. Occasionally, copies can be found selling on eBay for over $60.

“We’ve been working closely with our partners at 50 AMP PRODUCTIONS on all aspects of the graphic novels – from script to line-art to coloring and more, we really feel like these are a perfect balance between staying authentic to the ‘Terraria’ experience while taking enough creative license to be able to craft an engaging story within the ‘Terraria’ universe,” said Ted Murphy, Head of Business Strategy and Marketing for RE-LOGIC, creators of the “Terraria” video game.

The single-issue comic books for this series will be available exclusively at 50ampproductions.com, along with some truly exciting collectible goodies.

The collected edition graphic novels will receive a wide distribution to stores and outlets that carry fine graphic novels everywhere.

Grant Alter brings well over a decade of experience in the world of comics and publishing, having served as writer, editor and Editor-in-Chief. Dean Koontz, Charlaine Harris, Stephen King, Paulo Coelho, “The Dresden Files,” the prequel to “Game of Thrones,” “The Wheel of Time,” Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Devil’s Due, Dabel Brothers, Dynamite Entertainment, Random House and Harper Collins are a few of the projects, people, and companies Alter has had the pleasure to be involved with over the years.

Along with Grant comes a solid team led by Creative Consultant Andrew Cosby, the co-founder of BOOM! Studios and co-creator of the hit SyFy TV series “Eureka;” and Creative Director Dave Lanphear, a veteran in the comics industry, having worked for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, CrossGen, Sony Pictures and many other media companies.

50 AMP PRODUCTIONS CEO Grant Alter said, “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with RE-LOGIC to tell a compelling original story that people of all ages can relate to, while ensuring that it adheres as closely to the existing elements of the game itself. We made this book to be accessible for new fans, but enjoyable for the fans who have supported this game for over a decade.”

New Book Provides Franchisees with Insight on How to Build Wealth

“Real Freedom: Why Franchises Are Worth Considering and How They Can Be Used For Building Wealth” is now available on Amazon

LICKING, MO., UNITED STATES, August 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gregory K. Mohr’s new book “Real Freedom: Why Franchises are Worth Considering and How They Can Be Used For Building Wealth” is now available on Amazon. This Wall Street Journal bestseller is an essential guide that provides readers with all the information they need to make an informed decision about franchising as a way to build wealth. With topics ranging from the different types of franchises available to how SBA loans can be used for financing, this book has everything aspiring franchisees need to get started on their path to success.

Time is a precious commodity. Everyone has the same time in the day, but some never seem to have enough time to get everything done. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to get more done in less time? Gregory K. Mohr has figured out how to do just that. In his book, he shares his methods for increasing productivity and achieving success. He shows readers the types of franchises, the pros and cons of the services industry, horizontal vs. vertical growth, and much more. Mohr has a proven record of success with over 200 clients who’ve learned his methods.

Mohr began his working life in the restaurant industry. He first came into contact with franchising when he worked at a fast-food restaurant chain straight out of high school. He later managed a twenty-four-hour chain restaurant before earning degrees in electrical engineering and physics and becoming an engineer.

Mohr had always been interested in business, and he knew that he wanted to be his own boss someday. However, he never imagined that it would happen the way it did. After working in the corporate world for fifteen years, Greg was laid off from his job in the semiconductor industry.

While this was initially a difficult experience, Greg saw it as an opportunity to finally pursue his dream of owning his own business. With the help of a franchise consultant, he found a great fit for his goals and criteria and never looked back. Today, Greg is the proud owner of a successful franchise business, and he loves being able to share his passion with others.

His experience in the restaurant industry has been invaluable in his current role as a franchise consultant. In particular, it has given him a deep understanding of the day-to-day challenges faced by franchisees and how to overcome them. The former corporate ladder climber and best-selling author was named the 2019 Franchise Consultant of the year at the #1 franchise consulting company in the U.S. As a result, he is uniquely positioned to help franchisees succeed in their businesses.

Mohr also hosts the Franchise Maven podcast, which is all about franchising, becoming a franchise and growing a business. On the podcast, Mohr educates people about franchising and helps them to decide whether or not it is right for them. He does this by providing information and resources to help them make an informed decision. For Mohr, it is all about helping people to achieve their business goals, whatever those may be.

“I believe jobs are tools to help us live happy, fulfilled lives. That’s why I help entrepreneurs and corporate holdouts create wealth, financial freedom and security through franchising,” Mohr said.

Real Freedom: Why Franchises Are Worth Considering and How They Can Be Used For Building Wealth is now available on Amazon.

Powerhouse Memoirist Andy Smart’s THE MORE YOU HATE, a Memoir-in-Essay Collection is Now Available

Book cover, grayscale, has young boy looking through scope of large gun

Unsolicited Press, a PNW small press, releases Native Missourian’s first memoir about the death of his father and surviving the loss of a parent to suicide.

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, USA, August 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — THE MORE YOU HATE ME by Andy Smart is a memoir-in-essays collection that examines the author’s experience with his father’s suicide and the layered influence of the film Full Metal Jacket on both men. As Smart navigates the worlds of his past, present, and future, Kubrick’s Vietnam war movie casts its long shadow over him; his is a story of what it means to live each day as a sequel to the last. This isn’t just a suicide memoir or a survivor’s victory lap, but a book about the hardest truths of being a son.

PRAISE FOR ANDY SMART
“Family violence is the subject of many memoirs but I’ve not seen a book examine the nuance and indeterminacy of gun culture as it slips between the walls of the house next door. Smart’s narrative unfolds against the back drops of Hollywood and the NRA—America’s twin churches—where death is advertised in bright colors. At home the darkness streams down. This is a must read. I’ll wager you can’t put it down.”

—Stephen Kuusisto author of “Planet of the Blind”

ABOUT ANDY SMART
Andy Smart earned his MFA in Creative Nonfiction from the Solstice Creative Writing Program at Lasell University, where he was a Michael Steinberg Fellow. Andy’s essays have appeared in “Salamander,” “Sleet Magazine,” and “Moon City Review” as well the anthologies “Show Me All Your Scars” (In Fact Books) and “Come Shining: Essays and Poems on Writing in a Dark Time” (Kelson Books). His poetry has appeared in “Lily Poetry Review,” “The American Journal of Poetry,” and elsewhere. Andy was a 2019 Pushcart Prize nominee. His first chapbook of hybrid poetry, “Blue Horse Suite,” is available from Kattywompus Press. THE MORE YOU HATE ME is his first full-length book. Andy lives in Missouri and online at www.AndySmartWrites.com.

Well known for custom and retail coloring book manufacturing since 1988, the company brings in-house perfect bound and hard cover book finishing options.

It’s a pleasure and fun offering new and current customers perfect and hard back book options for their needs. And it brings jobs to our industry.”

— N. Wayne Bell Publisher

ST. LOUIS, MO, USA, July 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — US based Really Big Coloring Books® | ColoringBook.com a recognized leader in custom and retail coloring book production adds services to include traditional perfect binding-glued soft covers, and case bound-hardcover book finishing. “Purchasing manufacturing equipment and expanding with in-house production of perfect and hard back book finishing has been a natural progression for our company,” says Founder & CEO, N. Wayne Bell. “Over the years our company has employed artists, editors, writers, designers, and sales staff to produce coloring book products for businesses and consumers. During this time we outsourced perfect bound and hard back book projects. Historically we produced coloring books and some full color products while our binding area specialized in spiral, saddle stitching and pad/glued books. Now we add to these new services and bring additional binding options in house. The expansion includes new equipment, additional productions service, an extensive training program and more jobs”. Bell commented on the new service options.

“Perfect Binding is a widely recognized soft cover book binding method in which the pages and cover become glued together at the spine with a strong and flexible thermal glue. The other three sides of the book become trimmed to give them clean perfect edges. Perfect bound books may feature a clear coat or laminate cover to enhance the quality and appearance of the book”. The company states they manufacture perfect bound books in about any size from 5.5 x 8.5 inches to larger formats of 13 x 19 inches, beginning with a cover and two sheets of paper up to about 2.5 inches thick representing approximately five hundred sheets. Customers with catalogs, brochures and marketing pieces often prefer a glued perfect binding to enhance the look, feel and professionalism compared to the traditional saddle stitched or stapled pieces he said.

“Case binding, commonly referred to as hardcover binding, involves the construction of an exterior case made of various strengths of cardboard wrapped with the cover paper. Case binding is a more complicated process compared to other common types of binding and is a preferred binding method of educators, libraries, bookstores, retailers, and consumers. Considered the best binding technique of the publishing industry. The inside pages may be sewn together and then glued to the end-papers and then glued to the covers spine. “Offering this traditional book binding style to our new and current customers has been a winning service for our sales staff,” stated Bell.

He continued, “Square back binding is a advanced technology of the higher-end digital print industry and looks like perfect binding in shape, appearance, and professionalism. This technology is often replacing the traditional saddle stitched booklets. The pages are then stitched to the binding/cover with wire. The appearance of the book binding is a square edge and when the book opens it gives the same feel as a perfect bind”.

“Spiral binding never goes out of style,” said Bell. “The company has made spiral products for 35+ years, durability is a major factor offered by the various spiral options. The educational system, schools, libraries, artists, and anyone that loves a book to lay flat as they use it prefers spiral bound products. Another major difference is that coil binding is durable as it has no moving parts, where the binding opens there is less wear and tear on the book’s edge. Spiral books can be notebooks, coloring books or any type of book. These books can have a spiral binding on the top or side of the book, like the our ever popular and trademarked Travel Tablet Coloring Books® that are sold in stores nationally through retailers like Walmart.com, Amazon and the grocery industry”.

The company also manufactures various paper products, menus, pads, cards, anything a business or consumer requests printed on paper Bell says they will try and provide or refer them to someone who can. “Its all about working together in the publishing industry keeping it relevant, up to date and competitive with overseas operations while maintaining US jobs,” Bell said with a smile.
