Two new videos to check out this weekend, and a reminder that the special editions are available for pre-order right now…and they are being grabbed up at a decent clip. Especially the hardbacks…so, as an ol math teacher of mine used to say, “A hint, to the wise, is sufficient!”
This week’s collage-as-it-was-made time-lapse. As with all the collage videos, some lucky hardback buyer will end up with this as the actual cover of their copy.
And it’s official: Every special edition hardback and trade paperback will come with a free digital download of the Leeches of Lore album mentioned in the novel itself.

But don't get the issue for that. Check out all these other folks:
It's easy as pie to get a copy, as you can order through ETSY. Numbers are limited, so don't sleep on it!
