Sketchcard pre-orders have officially sold out!
Keep in mind that these will be available from a few different retailers upon release, so even if you didn't get an order in, you'll still have a chance at the packs in March. (I'll be posting more info closer to release.)
I just mailed the first batch of commissions today and should finish mailing the rest by Wednesday or Thursday. Again, everyone should receive their order by Christmas, except of course for international orders. Some may arrive in time, but again I can't make any guarantees.
The Scream sketchbooks are continuing to ship as well, so if you haven't received yours yet, they are on their way.
Also, the sketchcard pre-orders are almost gone with fewer than 100 left. If making an order of 5 or more, please email me first to verify that I have the quanity you need.
I doing this a lot sooner than expected because of the huge response. So here's the lowdown:
- The Dead@17 sketchcard series is being produced by 5FINITY Productions.
- The cards will be limited to 600 packs. Packs are comprised of 1 randomly inserted sketch card, plus the potential for a bonus autograph card or a special limited card. There are no regular, pre-printed cards in this series. Except for the random bonus cards, 1 pack = 1 card.
- I am personally producing 200 sketchcards (1 in 3 packs), with the remainder done by a roster of talented artists, many of which have produced Dead@17 short stories or pin-ups in the past.
- The packs will be released and begin shipping on March 15, 2010 and will be available from various retailers. I have been allocated 300 packs and will be accepting pre-orders. 5FINITY has already completely sold out of their pre-orders.
- Cost per pack is $20. There is no limit, but once the 300 are gone, they're gone!
- When ordering multiple packs, just input the quanity you need upon checkout.
UPDATE: There are now less than 200 packs left.
The next chapter of Dead@17, entitled The Witch Queen, arrives in March 2010! The most recent chapter, Afterbirth, arrives in stores today in trade paperback. (UPDATE: I was just informed that the Afterbirth trade was held up in customs and won't be out until the 16th.)
Also arriving in March will be the first official Dead@17 sketchcard series from 5finity Productions! More details to follow in the coming weeks.
Finally, check out a new interview with me over at From the Tomb Magazine.
The Scream sketchbooks have finally arrived back from the printer! The first wave will be shipped out by the end of the week, with the remainder going out next week. I will probably be cutting off ordering soon so if you haven't got yours in, now's the time.
Also, the holiday commission sale tonight at 12 AM Central.
