Hi Grim Oakers,
We have reached my favorite time of year. Thanksgiving. The December holidays. And what lies between them? The madness that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday!
Many of you want to know what we have planned. I can answer that. In the past, we've discounted our titles for that Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the two days in between. We will be doing the same this year. 10% off stock that exists in our warehouse when using Coupon Code: BFCM2021. Be sure to see what we have in our store and plan accordingly on Black Friday at 11AM PT. The coupon code will last through Cyber Monday.
We are also known for our Mystery Boxes, a cool idea that Jeff came up with several years ago. Sadly, we don't have the stock to achieve them this year. What will we do instead? Becky has been cataloguing our damaged copies. We are very particular about the books we ship to our customers; sometimes, a book pulled from a box does not meet that Grim Oak quality level. It gets put upon a shelf devoted to damages.
Well, that shelf has turned into a bay of shelves over the course of the last few years. There are some great titles there. Some of the books have bumped dust jackets or scraped leather or rubbed foiling. Others have a bit of dirt or glue on the book block. There are other little imperfections too. Perfectly fine books but they don't meet our quality needs.
In short, these books are not part of their limited runs. They are not numbered or lettered. Instead, they will be stamped and reduced in cost appropriately. These will make perfect gifts for those on your holiday list who aren't as particular about the books they own. Or they make for great reading copies, kind of like what I do over on The Signed Page.
And before you ask, no, we will not reveal the titles or quantities that we have. Can't spoil all the fun, right? Some titles only have one copy; other titles have thirty. It just depends. All of these copies will be placed into their own Collection on the Grim Oak Press website to make it easier for you to see them all in one spot. All you'll have to do is click the correct banner and you'll be there.
So get ready for Black Friday! The sale begins November 26, 2021 at 11AM PT! Be ready!
