Hey everybody, I didn’t think to do this on Black Friday, let alone Black Friday Origins: Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday, Whatever It Is Sunday, Cyber Monday, Steam Punk Tuesday or Wednesday Wedding Day, but now here it is The Next Saturday and I just want to remind everybody that if you happen to do your Christmas or other shopping through Amazon or Amazon UK you could really help me out by using my search bars or links, no matter what it is you buy. You pay the same amount you were gonna pay anyway but then they slice off a little chunk for me.
And I have just now decided on a special deal I’m gonna do. Now through the end of the year, if you do one of the following things to support me:
- buy a NEW copy of any of my books
- buy some stuff through my Amazon links
- donate something to my Paypal thing
- buy one or more of my Vern’s Fleamarket products (using my link gets me referral money on top of royalties)
(see sidebar for links)
…and then email me about it (outlawvern at hotmail dot com) I will send you a signed bookplate that you can put in one of my books, stick to your Kindle screen or put on your guitar case or whatever. Please put the word BOOKPLATE somewhere in the subject line of the email so I can find them easier, and let me know the name to sign it to and address to mail it to. Also, please specify if you need it for a Christmas gift so I can try to rush it to you. (Note: I just now decided to get some custom ones made, but if you need it fast I have a box of Garfield ones around here somewhere that I’ll try to find).
I’m using the honor system here but I know you guys are good for it.
By the way, there’ a new Val Verde design available at Vern’s Fleamarket. I never posted about it because I’ve been waiting for them to get American Apparel poly-cotton-blend shirts back in stock for me to get one on, and it’s been a few months. Anyway, this one is modeled after t-shirts that tourists would buy in various beautiful parts of Hawaii, California or Florida.
And you can also get all kinds of ties and bandanas and crazy shit with the Val Verde flag on them.
Anyway, sorry as always for the shilling, and for those of you who don’t do any of this I still appreciate you being here and reading. But if you’re able and willing to go the extra mile you help me support my dream of bringing you the good shit.
thanks everybody and happy holiday times.
