The short version: Come buy SECONDS from us, either by paying in advance starting June 23rd, or once we get the book in the store starting July 15th, and you get a free ticket to the Toronto launch event with Bryan Lee O’Malley and friends (a $10 value!).
Long Version: SO! We’re doing a cool event to celebrate the launch of SECONDS, the new graphic novel by Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley. The event is on Wednesday, July 30th, and it’s at The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema just around the corner from our store. It’s going to be a cool event, with an interview and a presentation and some fun stuff. We think you’ll enjoy it.
Because we’re expecting a lot of people, we had to rent a big space, and that’s The Bloor. We pay for things like this by selling books, and so if you’re buying your books from us 1) Thank you! and 2) we’ll give you a free ticket! If you’re choosing to buy your books elsewhere, well, ok I guess, but to help offset the cost of the event, we’re selling tickets for $10.
SECONDS goes on sale beginning Tuesday, July 15th, and we will have books that day (barring disaster). If you want to pre-purchase a copy of SECONDS, and get your ticket early, you can come and buy one in-store beginning Monday, June 23rd. You’ll get your ticket to the event, and we’ll give you something you can exchange for your copy of the book when it arrives in store July 15th.
(Oh, and we said that you could pre-purchase starting the 16th, originally. Our bad, the tickets aren’t ready yet. Pre-purchase starts on the 23rd.)
So! This sounds a lot more complicated than it actually is. Come buy SECONDS from us, either buy paying in advance starting June 23rd, or once we get the book in the store starting July 15th, and you get a free ticket to the event (a $10 value!).
Thanks for reading.
