Breaking the Rules

October 14th, 2009

Rules are made to be broken, right? Well, good then, because I long ago promised myself I wouldn’t divulge all of the major monthly Parcell Press Newsletter secrets and treasures to just everyone. I promised myself, “Self, that kind of news is for people kin’ a’nuff to subscribe.” But from time to time, I can’t help but want to share all of the secrets and treasures with the whole world.

Also, about a year ago I invented “Two-New Tuesday,” a clever plan by which I’d add just two new titles to the Parcell Press catalog per week, so as not to overextend myself or my customers, and to get folks in the habit of checking in weekly. I mean, who can forget a phrase like “Two-New Tuesday”? Well, the more new things I pick up for the shop and the more excited I am to share them, I have slowly but surely broken that rule as well.

So, I’m here to just get this rule-breaking over with once and for all. First, I am just itching to share this Coupon Code with each and every one of you. Typing sweaterweather09 into the coupon code field when you checkout will take 15% off your order total! Fuh real. But be quick, because this coupon code won’t work after 10.30.09.

Second, I’ve added about a bagillion new titles to the catalog lately. They’re all great and I’m really excited to show them to you. Here’s a little breakdown:

  • 17 Strangers by Katie Haegele
  • Cometbus #52
  • Cramhole #3
  • DIY or Don’t We #1
  • Gullible #29
  • Ker-bloom #79
  • King-Cat #70
  • My Time Annihilator
  • Papercutter #11
  • Please Be Brave
  • Quotidian & Friends
  • Runx Tales #2
  • Things I’ve Lost / Things I’ve Found
  • Truck Face #13
  • You Idiot Book

Can you believe it? That’s a lot of new stuff. Feels good to get all this out of my system. Now maybe I won’t be hyping out so much when I’m packing up your orders.
