MAIL-ORDER MYSTERIES, MY NEW BOOK AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER!
Hi folks! I'd like to finally announce my upcoming book, Mail-Order Mysteries! For over a decade I've been tracking down actual products that were sold in novelty ads from vintage comic books and in this book I compare the wild marketing claims with over 150 of the actual products. The concept is loosely based on a section of the Secret Fun Spot that I put together nearly ten years ago, though much more extensive and polished. Mail-Order Mysteries, is slated for a late September release (the date on Amazon isn't quite correct) by Insight Editions, and can be pre-ordered at Amazon. I'm happy to report that the hardbound, 156-page volume is only $13.57!
If you're in an extra supportive mood, feel free to click the Facebook "Like" button on the Amazon page. I've learned that even something like that (not to mention the pre-orders themselves) can affect the size of Amazon's second order.
In upcoming weeks I'll talk more about its origins and share sneak peeks and a number of entries that didn't make the final cut. Stay tuned!
