Theater Hopper Labor Day Sale - “Year One” $15 - ONE WEEK ONLY!

Tom BrazeltonThis weekend, I spent about 16 hours working on "Theater Hopper: Year Two". All of the images have been formated, dates of publication and titles of strips have been added. I'm even including 8 months worth of incentive sketches that I used to draw back in the day for buzzComix and Top Web Comics when life was a popularity contest. So, as of this morning, all of the methodical boring stuff is complete. I'm going to start writing soon and I hope to put the book into production in the coming months. Actually, it's not a "hope to." It's a "have to."

Y'see, I'm taking "Theater Hopper: Year Two" Wizard World Dallas on November 10 and if the printer is going to get the books back to me in time, they need the artwork by September 29.

So, in order to take advantage of the copies of "Theater Hopper: Year One" already in stock, I'm starting the Theater Hopper Sales Drive!

The concept is simple. We have about a month to sell a whole lotta merchandise and what I'm primarily interested in getting rid of are copies of "Theater Hopper: Year One."

To help kick things off, I am please to annouce our special one-week only LABOR DAY SALE! From now until September 3, all copies of "Theater Hopper: Year One" are available for the reduced price of $15 (plus shipping and handling). You have a very small window of opportunity to grab a copy of this book before they go back to regular price.

Feedback is starting to pour in from all over the country and across the ocean. People are REALLY happy with the quality of the book! In fact, if you'd like to get a sense of what people are saying, I've included some "notes of praise" about "Theater Hopper: Year One" that you can read here.


To help sweeten the deal, my wife Cami took time out of her weekend to put together this adorable, hand made Truman doll:



Anyone who orders a copy of "Theater Hopper: Year One" will have their name entered into a drawing to win this one-of-a-kind keepsake. In order to be eligible, you must place your order by Sunday, September 3! Ladies and gentlemen, the last time Cami made custom dolls for the site, we auctioned them off on eBay for a respectable sum. Order your copy of "Theater Hopper: Year One" at the special Labor Day Sale price of $15, and this little guy might be sitting on your desk a week from now.

Pretty cool, huh?

That's the big news for the moment, so please pass it around. Tell as many people as you can that we're having our sale. Ultimately the goal is to raise enough money to put "Theater Hopper: Year Two" into production. I'll be announcing the pre-sale for that book shortly after our week-long Labor Day Sale has concluded.

Thanks to everyone for your support! It is much appreciated!

All of the books that were pre-ordered have been sent. I shipped off the last large batch this weekend.

Hopefully, no one feels cheated by the reduced price announcement, but it had to do more with timing than anything.

I got the books back from the printer a week before I went to Wizard World Chicago. The cardboard mailers I planned to send them in didn't arrive until the week after I got back. From there it took me two weeks to address over 150 orders as well as provide sketches for each one. It took me three weeks overlapping with the addressing/sketching to ship everything out - going to the post office every day and handing over 10 or 12 envelopes over my lunch hour.

By the time I was done with all that, I realized I had less than a month to raise funds for "Theater Hopper: Year Two." Hence the Labor Day sale and reduced price this week.

But to get back to your original question - no, there are no confirmation e-mails once the book has shipped. I'm sending everything out by USPS media mail. I can afford tracking numbers or anything of the like.

I did my best to keep shipping costs down. Much more than that I think would make the book less attractive for purchase.

Regardless, all of the pre-orders have been sent. If you live in the lower 48, you should see your book in the next week if you haven't already. Overseas orders take 4 to 6 weeks.Â

If you have any questions, feel free to let me know!

hi Xaviar: I've got a larger photo I will send you. My question to Tom's post was with regards to not receiving my copy of TH: Book 1 yet. I dunno if it's shipped yet or not. Tom, are you sending out confirmation emails once the book has shipped? Thanks! -Krishna

 Your comment about your photo got lost when I had to move the site back to my main server from the VPS. Also lost was my reply asking if you had a larger version of the photo. Do you? Â
