Let me be honest with you. I kinda hate the thought of having a Black Friday sale. It strikes me as a desperate attempt to be trendy and timely.
And as we all know, I am neither of those things.
But we were *already* planning on putting up our signed books for November. And since last month’s books sold out in about two hours, we were going to put up a new piece of Kingkiller jewelry we have from Badali, too. But we realized we might sell out of *those* pretty quickly too….
So we decided to launch a few other things we’ve been thinking about for months, because honestly, with all the donations coming in for this year’s Worldbuilders fundraiser, we need the shelf space.
And then we had so much momentum going, we decided to bundle a few things together at a discount, and put a few things on sale….
If you scroll down you’ll see a lot of details, but not everything.
If you want to see everything we have going on peek over here on The Tinker’s Packs.
And remember, all proceeds from these sales go to charity, so there’s a free warm fuzzy with every order.

- Signed hardcovers of Masks. By E.C. Blake.
Here’s the books, being lovingly packaged by the author himself after signing them.
This is the first book in a new series. They’re first edition too. That’s a lot of firsts….
You can order one here. Be aware, we’ve only got ten, so they’re going to go quickly….
- Signed copies of Fortunately the Milk by Neil Gaiman.
Occasionally I like to help out a new authors by spreading the word about their books.
With that in mind, I’d like to offer up some signed books from a plucky up-and-comer called Neil Gaiman.
I know you probably haven’t heard of him before. But personally? I think this kid is going places.
Again, supplies are limited, so if you want one, you should probably do it quickly.
- Signed, limited-edition copies of The Dark of Deep Below by Patrick Rothfuss.
And finally from Subterranean Press:
While it might not be the Patrick Rothfuss sequel you’re really dying for. It is a Rothfuss sequel book that you can actually buy right now.
Subterranean Press sent us 10 copies of the just-released second Princess and Mr. Whiffle book. We’ve got five of the hardcover trades, and five of the special numbered editions. (There’s only 2000 of those total. And they include extras that aren’t in the trade version.)
(And if you haven’t read the first book, we’ve got that on sale for a couple days too.)
- Mystery Book Bundles from Prime.
The lovely folks at Prime have sent us a lot of books over this last year. A ton of books. Hundreds. So many books that we’re having trouble finding places to put them.
We’ve got novels and anthologies and collections. We’ve got books by authors like Philip K. Dick and Elizabeth Bear. We’ve got anthologies featuring greats like Neil Gaiman, George Martin, Holly Black, Cherie Priest, and Ursula K. LeGuin….
But here’s the problem, with our main fundraiser just around the corner, more books keep piling in, and we’re running out of space.
So we’re going to try something new. Mixed book bundles.
We’re going to package up a bunch of these lovely Prime books, then sell them to you at a huge discount.
If you buy a $30 bundle, it will contain over $150 of books.
The $50 bundle will have over $300 of books.
What’s more, none of the books will show up in both bundles. So if you buy both, you won’t get any duplicates.
We’re not guaranteeing more than 50 of these bundles, so if you want one, you might want to jump on them fast.
- Talent Pipe Earrings
The talent pipe jewelry Badali makes for us has always been one of the most popular items in our store.
But now, we’re offering them in another style – earrings.
The staff of The Tinker’s Packs have been getting questions about these for years, but now we officially have them.
Here’s the thing. We might sell out of this item. But if we do, you can just hop over and buy them from Badali directly. And, since the fundraiser starts on Monday, they’re having their annual drive which donates 10% of your order directly to Worldbuilders.
- US Customers – WBLDUSA13
US customers get free USPS Priority Shipping and 10% of your order will be donated to Worldbuilders.
- International Customers – WBLDINT13
International orders get $10.00 off shipping and 10% of your order will be donated to Worldbuilders.
Note: This code is good for anything in Badali’s entire store, not just mine, so as soon as Monday hits, you can do a bunch of holiday shopping, save money on shipping, and know that money is being kicked toward a good cause, too.

So there you are. Mind you, those aren’t the only deals we have going. We have other things on sale or bundled into groups as a discount.
For example, we’re doing two calendars this year, and they’re already bundled together so that if you buy two or three, you’ll save a chunk of change.
If you’d like to see *all* the new items, discounted bundles, and sale items we put up today. You can find them here.
Thanks for being awesome everyone,
