Black Friday/Cyber Monday Deals

Hi Everyone,

I hope those of you in the United States enjoyed Thanksgiving yesterday! I have a lot to be thankful for and you guys are part of that!

On to this year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals! Let me say that this deal will last the entire weekend, from Friday through Monday. I’ve tried to keep it simple this year since I don’t have a whole lot of stock on hand. But I think I’ve struck a good balance of discounted items and a free chapbook!

What is the chapbook? It is two chapters from my new SF&F novel The Tempered Steel of Antiquity Grey. It is the first 64 pages, about 1/6 of the book. I only printed 200 of these. 50 went to Grim Oak Press for our Mystery Boxes there (better click on this link to see those!). I gave away 50 at a recent Powell’s Books signing. Which leaves only 100 available on The Signed Page!

First, you can buy the chapbook outright for $10. Many of you already have the books that I am featuring on the website this weekend. So I wanted you to be able to buy it.

Second, if you want the chapbook for FREE — yes, I said FREEEEEE — you can place at least 2 of the on-sale products in the shopping cart, add the chapbook into the shopping cart too, and enter in the coupon code “2019chapbook” without quotes to get the $10 subtracted off your total!

And as I’ve inferred up above, I’ve put on sale all books that I have in stock. So that’s just another way to save! But sadly, I don’t have a lot of stock on hand for many of these, so when they are gone they are gone-gone!

Happy Black Friday! Stay sane out there this weekend and make it to Cyber Monday! We are just entering the holiday season and it’s important to pace yourself!

Be safe! Be well! Be reading something amazing!

New Signing: Katherine Arden

Grim Oak Press is attending 2019 Emerald City Comic Con!

That means I’ll be there, supporting our new anthology, Unfettered III. But it also means I’ll have access to a number of great authors who are also going to the convention.

Katherine Arden is one of those authors. Her new book, The Winter of the Witch, completes her amazing trilogy that began with The Bear and the Nightingale and The Girl in the Tower. Those of you who follow me online know much I absolutely love these books. If Neil Gaiman and Naomi Novik had a literary child, it’d be Katherine Arden. Beautiful prose matched with amazing storytelling. Everyone should read these books. Especially signed copies!

I am pleased that Arden has offered to sign copies of her trilogy, for all of you. Of course, I’m doing it for my own collecting purposes but I know many of you take my recommendations to heart. This is one of those times.

The books will be signed and/or personalized at Emerald City Comic Con on March 18, 2019! I’ll only have 100 copies of each book. I doubt the first two books are 1st printings but I won’t know that until I receive them. Pre-order now and secure your copy! Because when gone, they be gone!

With Magic,

Shawn Speakman
