What is murder, monsters, and madness in the face of true love anyway? There’s a shiny new die cut sticker available in my shop. I think you’ll dig ’em.
Up until now the Gleam Upon the Waves swag set has been missing a key piece. Remember, a few weeks ago, when I mentioned I was working on a top secret bookmark? Well, I am please to say it has arrived in all its horrific wriggly glory. Avert thine eyes from the madness-inducing tentacled terror of The Bookmark of the Deep!Continue reading → The GLEAM UPON THE WAVES swag set is complete
As many of you know, with the launch of each novel in The Bell Forging Cycle, I’ve released three custom bookmarks—Gleam Upon the Waves will be no different. Today, I’m excited to share two of them! I think you’ll dig ’em. The third—to be revealed later—it’s still in production and will deviate a little from the standard 2″x6″ square format if everything works out (or it’ll be fairly normal if they don’t.)
You can see detailed version below. There’s the standard title-style bookmark which matches the other series’ sets, and one modeled after a ticket from The Gamble. (Which you’ll get to visit real soon.) Both feature spot gloss on the front and back. (It really makes that bloodstain pa-pop!) I’ll share the top-secret third bookmark when it’s available and ready!
Down to less than a week, roaders! Looking for something to do until Gleam Upon the Waves arrives? Check out this post from yesterday!
A new book means new 1″ buttons. I think you’ll dig these. One might even remember seeing similar campaign posters in certain old haunts.
While the news on the pandemic front has been positive. We’re still a ways away from in-person conventions and meetups. That doesn’t mean I’m slacking when it comes to swag. Like the titles before it, Gleam Upon the Waves will have its own swag pack, which I’ll eventually give away at conventions and over on my store. I’m excited to share it with you. First up: the new stickers.
These will be 1.5″ vinyl like the others. I’m really pleased with how well they turned out. And those Clark Ashton Smith fans out there will appreciate my not-so-subtle reference. Bookmarks are still in production (trying something new), but I should be able to share the new button real soon.
15 days, roaders!
Are you bored with your current photo on Twitter or Facebook? Looking for something different? In between events this weekend. I had a few moments so I put together some free avatars you can use for your social media accounts. You can find the full list over on my Free Stuff page alongside cool backgrounds and info on how to get free swag packs. Hooray!
Once there, you’ll be faced with a choice, and you must choose your allegiance wisely. Will you lace up your boots and join Bell Caravans, find a spot in the multi-level City of Lovat, or will you side with the aggressive empire-building policies of the City of Syringa? The choice, dear reader, is yours!
Think I’m missing something? Would you like to see a Cedric’s Eatery avatar? Sardini Market? St. Olm’s? Shoot me an email or let me know in the comments below.
