Scrapyard is Inbound
Submitted by Howard Tayler on May 4, 2009 - 02:22
I got a phone call on Friday. A nice man with a heavy asian accent asked me if my address was a business or a residence.
Iâ€™ve gotten this call before. I know what it means. It means the people who printed Schlock Mercenary books want to know what kind of a truck to send. I explain that the truck must have a lift-gate and a pallet-jack, because like most suburban American homeowners, I did not purchase a home with a loading dock. Also, I do not own a fork-lift.
If the nice man is to be believed (and I have no reason to doubt him), my shipment of The Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance and Schlock Mercenary: Munitions Canister One is due to arrive a week or so from today. Pre-orders will not ship until June, however, because I still have to sketch in a thousand of these and that takes me about three weeks. Also, Sandra canâ€™t print any postage until after May 15th because the rates are going up.
Those of you who have already pre-ordered probably saved some money. No, noâ€¦ donâ€™t apologize. Weâ€™ll be fine. Think of it as a â€œcheap shippingâ€ sale we ran without telling anybody.
I believe that means that between now and May 15th weâ€™re still running a â€œcheap shippingâ€ sale.
