As of this minute, they're 20% gone...
As of right this minute we've pre-sold exactly 1000 copies of Schlock Mercenary: The Tub of Happiness. This is a print run of 5,000, so in just under 24 hours we've sold 20% of the books.

Don't worry. We won't run out. Buy all you want, we'll print more.

So our household is wondering - how many of those are for the sketch edition? Is your hand feeling good about this?

Both fordprfct and selenite asked for Kevyn. I'd been holding out for Kevyn and Elf, but it wasn't an option. :-(

Sorry about that not being an option. Since K&E don't get together until Book 8, I don't figure I'll be offering that as a sketch edition option for a while.

Show up at a convention, though, and I'll put the two of them on paper for you (or in the back of an unsketched book) in a jiffy!

And if that is indeed 60%...*does a happy dance*

Will it be going up on Amazon? I see you have three books up there, but one of them is >Administering Groupwise 5.5. I wonder what kind of sketch I could get if I brought that to a con?

Bring Administering GroupWise 5.5 to a convention, and I'll deface it very happily.

Tub of Happiness will eventually be available at Amazon, but not until mid-December at the earliest.

He'd cut everyone's mail quota to store the last three seasons of Big Brother. ;)

In 4chan's /co/ they were mocking your books. I think that means you're officially famous, now.

Well, if you compare with syndicated strips, there's still the TV series to go yet.

And Howard did say he'd dabbled with animation in the past. ;)
