You want a good comic book collection? You want a comic book that you're going to remember for the rest of your life? You want one that's had some care, effort, pride and hard work put into it? Lemme just quick show you some of the work the went into just making the cover...and you multiply that in you head times 70 some other pages. I don't screw around when I put a book out. I put out the best I can to make sure you are entertained.
The New collection of Arsenic Lullaby is ready to hit the shelf's and Time is running out to order yours!
...that's not just advertising jargon...there was a mix up and we didn't even know it was in the store's catalogs until like 4 days ago.
I mentioned in the last blog ( https://goldvoice.club/steem/@arseniclullaby/new-arsenic-lullaby-collection-ready-for-stores ) that the new collection of Arsenic Lullaby got put into the catalogue...without me knowing/having time to promote it.
I tell ya, sometimes its like the very harmony of the universe is tuned to throwing a monkey wrench into everything I try to accomplish...which would be unfair if I was a good person trying to distribute self help books. But I'm not, so I will just press on against the cosmic forces of good. Time is short, so let's give this a f*cking whirl, eh?
Here's what ya need to know/understand. Even though it is 2019...the comic book industry works like this- Stores get a catalogue full of comics, they place their orders (after input from customers like you) the distributor gathers the orders, sends them to publishers ( that'd be me), I send them the books, they send them to the stores.
...yeah...no one's figured out a better way, and I can't fight the ocean. SO...NOW...is when you wanna tell your stores to reserve your copy of Arsenic Lullaby "the Devil's only Friend".
"why can't we just order from you?"
Because...the comic book industry would collapse.
I mean, obviously the industry is not hinged on my niche dark humor book...society has not crumbled so far that my despicable stories are propping up an industry. But, we need to go through stores because we need to support comic book stores. BECAUSE...we need comic book stores.
The industry cannot survive without them. I truly believe that, and these are things I have thought through thoroughly. The industry needs stores for pragmatic reasons, and it needs them for moral.
The simple charm and break in the week of going to a comic book store and looking around and getting cool stuff...that is the core joy of this whole thing. It's what makes it a habit. It's what makes it a culture. It's what makes it an event. It's what allowed a book like mine to end up in peoples hands...them just looking around the shelves and going "what the fu..." and giving it a try.
The stores aren't just important, they are necessary .

ANYWAYS...I'm behind the eightball on promoting this. I have no idea right now where I put my contact info of comic book websites, podcasts, youtube channels that wanted to mention whatever new stuff I had coming out...so if you are one of these PLEASE, by all means, contact me. That'll save me some precious time.
