Of course, depending on shipping, but they should be arriving right on time! I ordered these babies about a week or two ago in the hopes they would arrive June 1st, just because it makes my life easier on remembering what day they came in. These next books mark numbers 51-100, so be sure to get your copy on sale for $20!!! This includes tax for those of you who are local, meaning the "total" is $19 and some change so it's equivalent to $20. I just found that way easier, and rewarding to my customers for being very supportive, so I do intend on doing it for now, not sure about future orders however.
Unfortunately, while I'd love a price drop on my global sales, that is not the case, therefore: $20 books is for in-person sales only. Just wanted to clarify that. NOW prices of my books do vary from cheapest to most expensive in this order:
Amazon > Direct From Me > Barnes & Noble > Roseace
Another issue I've been running into: I'm going to try not to charge extra for signed copies, but I can't really have a book-signing if all the books in this print-on-demand existence are already signed via Direct From Me sales. Which, I'm not complaining, it's just a lot to keep track of and forgive me if I may have missed over you! I've been pretty busy, so please just message me, and we'll get that cleared right up!
And some old news: if I have signed your book already and do schedule a book-signing, let me know your favorite character (yes there will be a quiz!!!) and I will draw at least a head sketch of that character in your copy. These books will be available while supplies last, and I'm getting into my busy season, so I can't guarantee that I can hold copies for individuals! First come, first serve.
Also, PLEASE don't get my book unless you like the work. Several people have been buying the book simply to "help me out." Please understand that I am after a growing fan-base NOT seeking your money. While it is appreciated, I don't want people to buy my book and turn out not liking its contents simply because they thought they knew me personally, and expected the book to be a bit different. DISCLAIMER: Guys, this book is dark! I've tried writing comedic stuff in the past and it shortly became cannibalistic. I write what I know, and I write to get an immediate reaction from my audience.
Trust me, if this book and my work isn't your cup of tea, that's fine. What's going to upset me more is finding out you bought a signed copy of my book with your name in it that I can no longer resell because it was personalized and since you didn't like it, you put it on a shelf and it was never seen again. That would hurt me the most, because I worked my a$$ off for this story, 10 years of my life. I started this project when I was 13, so I still had homework and assignments, and so on!
Anyways--rant over--and thank you for those of you who have truly fallen in love and become engaged with my novels. You are my audience, and I look forward to making this world an imaginative place your mind can escape you and ignite the flames of your own creative endeavors.
So again, thank you for your time, and if you for some reason don't enjoy my novel, all I can say is give it to someone who will, and if you love it, great! And stay tuned for more news on all my future books as well! I don't want people to feel obligated to buy my book simply because they know me in real-life. If you are interested in "helping me out" in that way, then simply spread the word to your loved ones about it, who share my common interests and feel free to purchase some corresponding book merchandise as well. I've got several T-shirts and designs that go hand-in-hand and can definitely work toward advertising.
Have a blessed June, and God bless!
