Mentally Incontinent Book 3 Presale Is GO!

That's right! It's Cyber Monday, which is pretty stupid as a concept. But it IS the day I told you I'd be putting my new book, Mentally Incontinent: Yes, My Third Book Is Also Named Mentally Incontinent, Even Though Everyone Told Me To Name The Third Book Something Different From The First Two, But They Also Told Me To Name The Second Book Something Different From The First And I Didn't, And I Figure, Why Break The Tradition? on presale. And so that's what's happening here and stuff. 


Before we get to the commerce, let me go ahead and tell you that you may want to read through everything first, to make sure you don't miss an awesome super deal. Cause there's a few of those here.


Also, the only way to guarantee that books will be there in time for Christmas is to buy them during this presale (unless you buy the e-book editions, which are available the second you buy them, but who wants to unwrap a box full of 1's and 0's? NO ONE THAT'S WHO).


Also, notice that the cover (by Casey Edwards) is in production currently, and isn't ready to show yet. So I had to make due with some stand-ins. You may have heard of the authors.
BIG IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're reading this in Facebook or your RSS reader, you may not be able to see the Add To Cart buttons below -- Go to the original post to buy these awesome things! Also, YOU DO NOT NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO BUY. Just select "use credit card" on the checkout screen.


Okay, so without further ado, let the buying BEGIN! What you can buy today:


*     *     *


Mentally Incontinent: The Third, Hardcover edition. It's $29.95, and is only available during this presale (which ends Friday, December 9). 


(Actual cover coming soon, for now, James Patterson elected to stand in for this shot)


It is also limited to 100 copies total (well, actually 110, but the last 10 are not available for purchase and must be won and will have a full color pretty picture drawn by me in them). And of course, you can get a stick figure in it for a buck more. It's tradition.

Mentally Incontinent: The Third, Paperback edition. It's $14.95. And while it isn't limited to 100 like the hardcover, it IS only guaranteed for Christmas if you preorder it!


(As with the hardcover, the actual cover of the book is coming soon. And Douglas Adams didn't volunteer to stand in, but he's dead and can't argue)


And you can add a stick figure drawing to your autograph for an extra buck. And why would you do that? Because it's HIP and it's COOL. That's why.

Mentally Incontinent: The Third, Paperback + Hardcover Super Duo Pack. It's $44.90, and by doing the math I just realized I don't know why I didn't just make the prices round numbers. 






This nets you both a hardcover and a paperback copy. Why you'd want both, I'll never know. But if you do, this is how you do it, yo.

Add A Copy Of The Second Book (The Penguin Book) To Your Order: It's $14.95.



Blah de blah. You guys know what this book is and stuff. If you know someone who might benefit from its presence for Christmas, or you missed out on getting it, or you have a brand new table in your house that needs to be level, this is a great chance to make those things happen. 




Add A Copy Of MI2:

Mentally Incontinent Trilogy Super Pack: It is $99.99, and consists of a hardcover and paperback of MI3, a paperback of MI2, a paperback of MI1 (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??) And a copy of MI #0, the first ever thing I published. Limited to 10!!

So, I located 11 copies of my first book. There was a return shipment sent to my printer a long, long time ago, and when I was setting up the new book, I saw the notice asking if I should have it shipped to me or have them destroyed. The notice was almost four years old, and because I went through Penguin for the 2nd book, I hadn't been in the interface for the printer to see it. So I am having it shipped to me. One copy is owed to a family member who has held a grudge for a long time because they never got one and it was sold out and out of print. So the last 10 are available to you in this super Trilogy Pack. This is the only way you can get the first book these days, unless you want to pay upwards of $100 at Barnes & Noble:



And as a super bonus, I'll also toss in one of the very few remaining Mentally Incontinent #0 fanzine things I made back in 2004, which was a HUGE mistake of a business endeavor, but still fun to do. It's the very first printed work of mine. It includes the first (and only) work of fiction / sci-fi I've ever written, about an alien abduction gone silly. And it's included in this pack. But note -- these are 9 years old or so, and have been sitting in a box in the attic, so there's a bit of water damage on a few of them. You get what you get. So, get to getting it.

And with every preorder, I'll toss in some of the random memorabilia and giveaway items I've produced over the years (that I just found in the garage), such as stickers and bookmarks:



Alright, that's it for the holiday product blitz this year. For those of you hoping that I'd do drawings again, I still do them, so just email me if you want to commission something. But they're more than $3 now, so understand that when you email me. And those of you I still owe drawings to -- hit me up so I don't let it slip off my radar, I WILL DO THEM.

Except Tricia's robot.
