Rabbit Valley® Comics is not creating any Black Friday sales. We’re not doing Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Sex Toy Sunday, Cyber Monday, or Gratuitous Marketing Tuesday.
Rabbit Valley does sell products like books and art. But more importantly, we sell stories. We sell beautiful stories like Alflor’s Prince of Knaves which we’ll be proudly reprinting soon with some surprises and all new artwork. We sell sexy stories like the Trick or Treat anthology. We sell profound stories like Wolf’s Chronicles of Jayden series (book two now available). We sell stories that you imagine in your mind when you buy a print from one of our dozens of artists. And, we sell some really funny stories with 2 the Ranting Gryphon’s DVDs and CDs.
What makes that story worth 15% off today for one day only?
Did the artist put 15% less work into the book today? Did the author skip rewriting 15% of the book to make it better? Did an editor decide a story was good enough, might be 15% less good than the rest of the stories, but good enough?
Of course not.
We sell stories. Stories made by real people. Stories with real time and effort and talent poured into them. And for anyone, especially me, to say today that work is worth 15% less is profoundly stupid.
I am tired of the ridiculousness of consumerism on holidays. Buy, buy, buy, buy, and you don’t need it, but buy some more. Buy on Thanksgiving, buy on Labor Day, buy on Christmas, buy on Memorial Day. Never mind the meaning of the holiday, being thankful for what we have, celebrating that we do not need to be forced to work a 60 hour week, that we respect religions, and that we look back on our fallen in war.
So, if you buy something from Rabbit Valley this weekend, buy it to read it, buy it to enjoy it, and then if you wish, pass the book to another person. Share the story. Know you helped pay the rent of the person who wrote it. Respect the work, respect the artist, and thank you for supporting them. We will keep bringing you the stories as we always have for over 15 years.
