But Wait, There’s More! Pre-Order The Very Last Castle
When I was a kid I really loved infomercials. Touchless, The Food Dehydrator, that oven that cooks things with air or something – I watched them all. If you’ve ever seen an infomercial, you know that the best moment is always when someone says “But wait, there’s more!”
Well, you can now pre-order the picture book I wrote and Mark Pett illustrated, The Very Last Castle. If you pre-order the book from my hometown bookstore, the fabulous McLean & Eakin, we’ll send you a signed copy when the book arrives on October 9th. And, hey, shipping is only 99¢!
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!!!
You will also receive a limited-edition mini-comic about how the story was written, hand-made by yours truly.
Here’s an excerpt (with a guest appearance by J.K. Rowling):

Once the mini-comics are gone, they’re gone, folks – never to return. I can only handle so much folding and stapling.
In summary, if you preorder with McLean & Eakin you get:
1. A book about courage that I think you and the kids in your life will like.
2. My weird signature marring the beautiful title page.
3. A limited-edition hand-crafted mini-comic about how the story was made.
4. 99¢ media mail shipping!!
5. The satisfaction of supporting a wonderful, award-winning independent bookstore (this is the best one).
Thank you for your time.
