When I was a kid, I had a subscription to Boy’s Life magazine. The magazine was always kind of bleh, but at the back of every volume were several pages filled with mail-off ads. Incredible X-Ray Specs, Hilarious Sneezing Powder, Amazing Sea-Monkeys, etc. You know, awesome stuff that fills a kid’s head with crazy ideas about what’s to come.
And it wasn’t just about the item. It was the whole process: mailing off the coupon, waiting while daydreaming about all the stuff you could do when the item arrived, checking the mail every day for your package, and that final sweet moment when it actually arrived and you were holding the thing you’d been waiting for so long in your hands.
So. What does this have to do with the Boothworld Industries Initiation Kit?
I decided to include a mail-in offer at the back of the Boothworld Industries Initiation Kit, and yes, it’s fully functional.
Keep making cool shit, people. And don’t forget: you have to buy the book before midnight on Friday, August 7, 2015 to be included in a published novella as a founding member of Boothworld Industries and get the free preview of the upcoming novella “Darkness Blooms.”
