It is just one of those things that happens today that drives people up the wall about entertainment today. You shell out your hard earned money for a product and get it. You are happy with what you got but then you learn there is going to be a new edition with all the same material plus some bonus stuff. Could be a color edition, more "unseen" stuff or even something as simple as hardcover. It does get annoying for completest. I feel like sometimes it alienates people too. They don't buy the book or game or movie for fear that something better is going to come out and they will have to spend more money to get it.
With my books you can rest assured that I will not do this. When you get a Bixby House Book, you get the complete edition. As long as it comes from me as an independent self published deal, you will not have to worry about a better collected edition with five new strips that weren't seen or more behind the scenes stuff. I, just like you, really want to buy something once and love the experience I get with it be it a book, game, movie or whatever. I just wanted you to know that.
When you buy a book from me I want it to be a safe buy. To know you are getting the complete package. As cheesy as it sounds...
That is a Bixby House Books promise.
So to those of you that have bought a book or a couple copies of my first one, you have my undying thank you. To those that have left a review on amazon, you have a double shot of thanks. It's piping hot so be careful. Those review are ultra special to me so it really means a lot for you to take time out and write one. I realize that there are many other important things in life.
That's all for now. Thanks for reading through this cartoonist's ranting.
I will see you in the panels.
