Maiden and the Fish + Black Friday – Cyber Monday sale!

Happy Thanksgiving! With our release of Maiden and the Fish this week, a beautiful short story by new Sparkler additions Lydia Mackenzie (author) and Phong Anh (illustrator), and the temporary lowering of the paywall for Off*Beat Chapter 15, now all chapters in this month’s issue are available free to read! That won’t last forever, so get your goodies while you can.

And now that it’s technically past midnight, we’re in the loved-and-hated BLACK FRIDAY. All products in our shop (except for subscriptions) are 15% off until 11:59 PM EST on Monday if you use the coupon code blackfriday2013 at checkout. Stay home from the crowds and shop in your pjs with us! We also added a special new product: an 11″ x 17″ print of Phong Anh’s beautiful illustration for The Maiden and the Fish, which was also modified for Issue #004’s cover. For you non-subscribers, buying that print will also get you an immediate free download of the short story in ebook format (pdf, epub, and mobi) so you can download that gorgeous short onto your devices. LOVELY.

For those who want to do Sparkler holiday shopping but can’t take part this weekend, no worries – we’ll offer an (admittedly smaller) discount on our store starting Tuesday, and that will run until December 31st. All these sales are to help fund our 2014 line-up, which is shaping up to be awesome. Thanks for your support!

Edit: Forgot to mention that now you can get the Off*Beat Vol 1, Off*Beat Vol 2, and Tokyo Demons Vol 1 paperbacks at Amazon as well (those links will bring you there). And they have their own deals there, too. Nice!
