$6 Paperback Rapunzels are back!

I noticed there weren't a lot of book-related deals on ol' Black Friday this year. Amazon--which began life as a book-seller, had only one book in their "Black Friday Lightening Deals" hootenanny. Wait, no they also had the "Twilight Collection" in there. So two book deals.

That said, they've put up the paperback of RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE for $6 again. If you remember, they did this a few months back and it didn't last long. So if you are the rare blog reader that DOESN'T have a Rapunzel, this is your chance. The paperback, which is very nice (but not nearly as awesome as the hardcover) usually retails for $15. So buy a copy for a friend--just in time for Calamity Jack, which should be creeping into stores in the next three weeks.

By the way, I'll do a custom drawing, say a blog banner or an avatar, for the first person to send me a photo of Calamity Jack on sale in a bookstore.

{UPDATE! This Thanksgiving Weekend Deal is OVER! I hope everyone who wanted one got one! THEY ARE SOLD OUT!}


Juliana said... says that "Calamity Jack" will be available January 5th. Will it be available before Christmas anywhere else? I'd love to pick up a copy for my son as a gift!

I've been told it will sneak out 2-3 weeks before the "Official Release." It SHOULD be in stores mid December. I'm not sure how that works, but that's the word I've gotten.

I hope it does--seems kinda dumb to release a book a week AFTER Christmas. I'm sure the publisher has some kind of plan(?)

I don't really understand how publishing works. I jus' draws de peectures.

Juliana said...

Yeah, a January release is a bit of a head-scratcher, for sure. Beginning of December makes a lot more sense!

I'll pick one up (and have you autograph it next time I see you around!) in December if I can. Otherwise, my son's birthday is in February, so...

I bought five of them for Christmas presents!
How are they getting Calamity Jack out so fast? I thought it took a year?

Nathan said...

Woohoo! Go Edith! That's what I like to hear!

They've moved pretty quick on printing on Calamity Jack. But it looks fantastic. I have a FINAL COPY on hand now (still waiting for my box of copies...) but it really looks good, especially next to Rapunzel on a shelf.
