Pre-Post-Pre-Order Special

April 23, 2017


My new book, Everything is Flammable, which is getting rave reviews, is not in stores yet and can still only be obtained at a few select places, like Desert Island, the upcoming PEN Festival, on the Uncivilized website, and now here.

For you “process nerds,” I’m offering a special deal: each of the next fifty copies bought from me will include a detailed draft of one of the pages from the book. I’ll choose my favorite for the first one and work on down that way, although they are all pretty cool. Also, if you’ve read the book or part of it and would like a specific page, please feel free to inquire in the buyer’s notes if it’s available.

A lot of these drafts have “deleted scenes” and this one even has a deleted cameo with Julia Wertz:


It will arrive in the book nestled next to the page that it eventually becomes:


Here are some more examples:





The books will ship as soon as they touch down into my hands, which should be mid to late May.

For only $20.00 plus shipping, you can get a unique piece of artwork and a signed copy (160 pages, full-color, Hardcover, 6 x 9 inches) of Everything is Flammable.

Just click:

Please indicate who (if anyone) you would like me to sign the book to!

UPDATE: These are all sold out!

But check in for deals like this one soon.
