The first batch of bookmarks and postcards have been printed (I opted to use OvernightPrints.com).
A few more are in the pipeline. Here's the latest postcard (3 of 4).
Currently, I am waiting on my artist, who is a busy guy, to complete the last piece of commissioned art. It promises to be just as excellent as all the rest. Once I receive that I will make the final BITTEN postcards and send numbers 3 and 4 off to the printers.
These collectible postcards and bookmarks should all be ready for the 11th annual Frightmare in Texas in April.
I am also planning on having colored version of the artwork done up in limited posters / prints. To keep things affordable, I will limit the size of the prints to A3. This will make overall cost for printing, shipping, and sales more affordable for all.
My plan is to offer the bookmarks free with every purchase of a paperback copy of a Winlock Press title. If a customer purchases $50 or over, they will get one free postcard. If one spends $100 they will get 2 collectible post cards. If they spend $150 or more on Winlock Press titles they will get the full set.
Collectible postcards will only be given away with Winlock Press book purchases as they are an exclusive item intended only for serious fans and collectors.
In addition to the bookmarks and postcards, the color posters / prints will cost $25 dollars individually or $20 dollars with any purchase of any given Winlock Press title.
I'll keep everyone posted as things start to come together.
By day I am an educator and a cultural ambassador. By night I entertain notions of being a literary master. In reality I am just a family man and ordinary guy who works hard and loves writing just about as much as I love my family. Just about.
