Aaaaand here’s my second surprise, though I have to admit, this one more or less happened by accident. I wanted something palpable to commemorate the unreal fact that I had somehow managed to write and publish ten books, and then I thought, why not take my Resident Witch logo and put it on a T-shirt? What logo, you’ll ask, and rightly so, because you’ll probably have read the e-book and the thing only shows up on the backside of the paperback. Yes, I’m that bad at the whole marketing and branding issue.
Anyway, I found myself looking for ways to design T-shirts online, and stumbled across a few pages… and then it all went a bit out of hand, and before I knew what I was doing, I had an online shop for merch stuff, and my own Resident Witch shirt. Now the kids want a Resident Nuisance shirt each, which may or may not say something about their ability to self-reflect.
Just kidding. They’re wonderful kids. Most of the time.
I think I designed the shirts in a way that won’t make you feel like you’re running around a living, breathing billboard. No mention of any book on them, no interactive website link, not even my name, which means you don’t have to have read any of my stuff to enjoy wearing a funny shirt. They’re not precisely cheap, but they come with a good conscience. The company producing them takes great care to work sustainably. Organic cotton, wastewater recycling, workers who earn a decent wage, renewable energy, all that, just look here. Good quality, too. I’ve set the price to the lowest possible option, which means if you actually do purchase a shirt, I get a cup of coffee out of it, and I’m not talking fancy caramel soy latte, just an ordinary cup, milk, no sugar.
Here’s the link to get you to the shop, and a bad pic of me with my new favorite shirt. The only thing to rival my marketing skills are my selfie skills.
If you’re missing something, your favorite quote, your favorite color, whatever, drop me a line, I’ll see what I can do.
