The past year has been full of exciting things happening behind the scenes here at Nerdy Ink. At the beginning of the year, I was offered a book deal, which has had me diving in and out of edits and drafts to meet my deadline for next year’s release date, while simultaneously creating new covers and special edition books for you all here. It has been a rewarding, but stressful year. In the midst of this, my husband, Josh, was offered a really amazing opportunity in the field he used to work in before he left his career to build Nerdy Ink with me. Adding both our new endeavors (atop an ever-increasing demand for our time where our kids are concerned) has stretched us quite thin. With these things in mind, as we look to the future, we have decided it’s time to make a change.
While we haven’t settled on exactly what that change will look like, one thing that all of our options have in common is the need to relieve ourselves of our current inventory. This means that our Black Friday sale is, in some ways, also a “final sale.” The sale will start Friday 11/24, and will be 40% off ALL in stock items until they're completely sold out. We're not saying they'll never be available again, but we truly don't know what the future holds. So, now is your chance to grab your favorite Nerdy Ink item before it's gone.
There are still a lot of things to be decided in the coming months. I love what I do, and while I, like any other author, hope my book becomes a wild success, I have never wanted to give up art in place of writing. My plan is to do both, but in order to do so successfully—while maintaining some semblance of a life outside of my career, especially relying less on the help of my husband with Nerdy Ink—this change is a necessity.
I promise to keep you all updated once we have settled on a plan of action. Until then, we’ll be rolling and shipping dust jackets as fast as we can!
