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. I'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 can'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, no... don't apologize. We'll be fine. Think of it as a "cheap shipping" sale we ran without telling anybody. I believe that means that between now and May 15th we're still running a "cheap shipping" sale.
