The New Schlock Storefront

Howard has set up a new storefront for Schlock books.

Before they can open pre-orders for Schlock Mercenary: The Blackness Between they need to run several more transactions through it — not just to test the basic store functionality and merchant account stuff (they know that works), but to test and refine processes on their end. You know, taking the receipts handed to them by the store and turning out shipping labels.

So… here’s the deal. For a limited time (call it “from now until sometime Monday�) they will be selling signed copies of Schlock Mercenary: Under New Management (the FIRST book, not the new one) for just $10 + shipping. They would love for you to help them test the store by buying a book (or two!). Maybe you could even apply some of your savings towards a more expensive shipping method, in order to further help them.

Assuming things go well, pre-orders for Schlock Mercenary: The Blackness Between will open on Tuesday, October 10th. Sketch editions will be pre-orderable as well, from 10am Eastern Time on the 10th until 10am Eastern Time on the 11th.

If things DON’T go well with our testing, they’ll postpone pre-orders for a week or so while they iron out the wrinkles, straighten the kinks, flatten the speed-bumps, and un-hitch the hitches. Watch his site for details.
