Last year, after the launch of Vile & Blessed by A H Serrano, we made t-shirts featuring the novel’s characters. You loved what we made and bought some of the items we made available.
Back then, we weren’t sure anyone would actually be interested in having merch. We were interested in having it ourselves. I definitely want to curl up in my favorite River t-shirt and crack open a book, but the fact that you wanted to do that too was a pleasant surprise.
In light of your support, we wanted to go ahead offer the designs you loved with new items: hoodies and mugs.
It’s getting warmer outside here on the east coast of the USA, so Hoodies and Mugs may not be what you associate with this time of year. But we couldn’t wait, and we decided we’d go ahead make these now since the t-shirts were already available.
Going forward, we’ll try to make sure you guys get hoodies and other items at the same time.
Actually, we should probably talk about the whole “going forward” thing because that short, two-word phrase has a lot of assumptions attached. What we mean is that we 100% intend to bring you more designs for the Vile & Blessed series, for future book series, and for you, the SFF reader.
In fact, we’re going to go ahead and roll out another design today for Vile & Blessed fans: The River Awakening Mark design.
If you’ve read the novel, you’ll know that Vile & Blessed’s main character, River, receives a mysterious mark on his skin, further adding to the mystery of his already peculiar and traumatic past.
I don’t want to spoil the book, but if you know, you know.
Check out our new arrivals in the Emergent Realms merch store, and let us know what you think!
