TODAY IS THE DAY! IT'S SUPER TORC DAY!
What does this mean? Welp, a couple of things. I took today off work, and I'm going to spend the whole day, uh, working. Promoting TORC Press, encouraging people to buy my Cool Stuff, and putting new Cool Stuff online for people to enjoy. Speaking of which, here's a cool new thing that's new available in the Online Store on this here site:
That's right! 7 Worlds #4 is now available! It's 24 Pages in Glorious Color for $4 plus $2 S&H. The main story is a continuation of the story from last issue, as the Hot Fudge Sundae Adventure Club do battle with a horrible worm monster. There are also three short stories introducing brand new characters Lilly Hood, the Jaegerwok, and Foxy Loxy to Seven Worlds. Plus, there's a new page of Quixote Coyote strips. So, there's a lotta stuff in this issue. Since it is Super TORC Day, we are running a special on this book. For the next 24 Hours, anyone that orders a copy will not only receive the book, they'll also get my brand new 8 page mini-comic "Dragon Frogs" (which is a hoot) AND a brand new 7 Worlds mini-poster/print/thingie. IN ADDITION! IF you are a supporter of TORC Press on Patreon and you order the new book, you will get an original sketch of your favorite 7 Worlds character as well. So, yeah, contribute a Buck to the Patreon, and get a sketch worth 10 bucks with your order. Sounds like pretty good math to me.
Anyway, besides this awesomeness, keep an eye on us on Social Media and this site today. We have all sorts of cool stuff we're gonna post as the day continues!
I knew when I started my reckless plan to make TORC Press into a Real Thing, an actual, working business, I knew it was going to take lots of time and work. I also knew it would take experimentation and trying new things. Very early on, I came up with the idea of having three "Event Days". These would be days where I would try to push hard to promote TORC Press, to push Sales, and to try to draw new Supporters to the Patreon. Obviously, I would be promoting TORC Press all year long, but these three days would be significant. The first of these is February 9th, aka My Birthday, aka Super TORC Day.
So, what are we doing for Super TORC Day? There are three things happening that day:
1) 7 Worlds #4 will be available for Sale in the Online Store.
2) Anyone who purchases anything out of the Online Store OR the Store at Storenvy (look for TORC Press on Storenvy) will receive, in addition to their order, an 8X11 TORC Press Print, and a copy of my new mini-comic "Dragon Frogs". As an Added Bonus, anyone who orders something on Super TORC Day and is a supporter on Patreon, will receive an original Pen & Ink drawing of their favorite TORC Press character.
3) Anyone who is a $5 or higher supporter of TORC Press on Patreon will receive a random Quixote Coyote strip. This is the ORIGINAL STRIP, not a reproduction. I never, ever sell or give away my original Comic Book Pages, ever. So in many ways, this is a big deal. If you like Quixote Coyote and have ever thought it would be cool to get an original strip, this is the only way to get one.
Other than that, the Patreon is currently at $7. If I can get enough subscribers to bring it up to $10, then I will start producing a brand new Ultra Dolphin Bros strip every Wednesday. So I'm hoping to promote that pretty heavy this week.
So get ready, Super TORC Day is this Thursday!
