Today is Good Friday, a day to remember the Sacrifice Christ Made on the Cross so that we might be saved. The fun part of the celebration is Easter, when Christ Arose from the tomb, proclaiming victory over Death. Today, we Christians reflect on the magnitude of His Sacrifice.
It’s also Bandcamp Friday, which means I hope you will reflect on the magnitude of sacrificing a few bucks to buy my music—or my second book!
The first Friday of a bunch of months in 2023—February, March, April, May, August, September, October, November, and December—will feature this pro-indie music observance, a day on which Bandcamp waives its usual 15% commission on sales.
In other words, when you buy my music, almost 100% of it goes to me, instead of almost 85%.
Currently, my entire discography of ten releases is $9.50, a savings of 45%, which is not bad for ten releases. That’s $0.95 per release—not too shabby! To purchase the full discography, click on any release, and you’ll see the option to purchase all of them.
I’m also selling all of my paintings for $10, with free shipping in the United States, regardless of how many you purchase. They’re one of kind, so once a painting is purchased, it’s gone.
I’ve also joined Society6, a website that lets artists upload their designs, which can they be printed onto all manner of products (like this throw pillow, or this duvet cover). Why not get a bookbag with a mouthy droid on it?
I only get 10% of the sales made there, but some of the stuff looks really good—I really want these notebooks with my “Desert View” painting on it (which again, is just $10 for the one-and-only original). Some of them are straight-up goofy, like this church doodle I made celebrating the presidential pardon of Roger Stone (the description for the piece is “Anger your friends with this doodle commemorating the presidential pardon of America’s most dapper political operative“).
I have a few new paintings from my highly unsuccessful foray into selling at the Lamar Egg Scramble, and I have two new doodles for just $5 each: Robo Talk 23 No. 1 and No. 2. I’m also working on quite a few more doodles for Society6, which will also end up here.
My first book, The One-Minute Mysteries of Inspector Gerard: The Ultimate Flatfoot, is $10 in paperback, and just $5 on Kindle.
My second and newest book, Arizonan Sojourn, South Carolinian Dreams: And Other Adventures, is $20 in paperback and $10 on Kindle.
