You have until 8:00am Mountain Daylight Time

If you've been paying attention, you know that pre-orders are open now for Schlock Mercenary: The Blackness Between. You also know that sketch editions are limited only by the 24-hour period in which we're letting you order them. As of this writing, two thirds of that period has expired, and you have but eight hours left. Of course, by the time you read this post, you will likely have less time still. If you want me to draw on the mostly blank 100th page of your book alongside a number that says "I paid extra for this," hurry to RIGHT NOW. I'll update the blog when time runs out. So far over 600 people have ordered numbered sketch editions. Their financial acumen and artistic patronage rivals that of the Medici family of Renaissance Italy, to whom they are either related, or dead-set on displacing. And for just $25 (plus shipping and handling) you can join their noble ranks. (I should write marketing materials for the Franklin Mint. Of course, I'd feel dirty using these kinds of words to hawk somebody ELSE's schlock... )
