Hey everybody! Just a few quick announcements. Anybody who has ordered anything before Christmas and after – all orders have been shipped, Test Everything is all caught up. And due to catching up with shipments and orders, the inventory looks like this: Issue 002: Don’t Worry About The Smiles, They’re Normal, is completely sold out. You can’t buy it online or in stores. So thanks everyone for buying! On that note though, there is still plenty of copies of everything else in the store, except for maybe It Is Time.
Also, Test Everything Issue 003: I’ll See You In My Dreams can now be found at the following wonderful stores: Domy Books in Austin (as usual), Nudashank in Baltimore, and Quimby’s in Chicago. Hooray! If you live near those retailers, go out and get it. And look for our next issues to continue to hit the selves at those stores, and hopefully more as relationships develop.
Alright, last but not least, is the most important news. I have only received 12 submissions for the current theme: It Is a Pleasure To Meet You. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of the entries so far, but I need more! So i am pushing the deadline back even further. The new deadline is February 12. So send ’em in! Tell your friends! Hit the blogs! I would love to see what you got! Thanks everybody. The next issue (Hugs Will Save Us) is almost done.
We have a winner! Talia K. was the randomly chosen person out of everyone who answered the trivia question correctly in the first Test Everything Email news, and thus has won a free copy of I’ll See You In My Dreams. There were only five entries, so perhaps more of you out there should get with it, and respond to the emails, if you want to win something, or sign up for the email newsletter with the link in the column on the right if you haven’t already.
Alright! Also important is this tidbit: I (Rand Renfrow) will be in Chicago from December 14-21. This means a few things. Most importantly that, if you want to hang out or meet up, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell me when and where. But, also Test Everything won’t be shipping any orders until after Christmas. That is December 25th. Sorry, but I just can’t. Everyone can still order things, they just won’t go out until after December 25th.
I was trying to finish Hugs Will Save Us by Christmas, but that looks like it may not happen. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated. I have emailed everyone that has been chosen to be in Remember The Good Times, so please, please, check your inboxes and respond to that email if you got it. I need your information! There are still plenty of copies of I’ll See You In My Dreams in the store.
Ok, I believe that is it. I’ll be updated this part of the website often, so keep checking.
