I'm finding out that not everyone caught my last post on this, so i'm re-posting it.
GO BUY THIS BOOK:
(...or go create your own version by adding other artists' works, changing cover art, or writing your own introduction.)
It's 11 of merriehaskell's short stories assembled in one handy-dandy volume. It supports the author, as well as a cool website where many authors can showcase and sell their work. It gives you a chance to say you had a copy before she got world famous.
I made it, i bought it, i read it, i loved it. It was something like $20 with shipping included.
So yeah, point made. Go do the thing.
-=ETA=-: ... and while i'm plugging awesome indy art, i should mention that i just bought this. (Two copies, of course.)
