So, as promised, here’s my big announcement. I’m joining Joe R. Lansdale, Jonathan Lethem, Nick Hornby, Richard K. Morgan Chuck Klosterman, Dennis Lehane and three of my personal heroes–Bruce Springsteen, Charles de Lint, and Andrew Vachss–at Novel Tees. It’s a literary t-shirt shop where all profits go to Protect, a lobby for legislation to protect children from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. And when Andrew Vachss signs off on this sort of organization, you can be sure it’s the real deal.
The shirt, heralding the charms of Angelina’s Tavern, is available for discount pre-order right now. As the site says, shirts are SCREEN-PRINTED (not some cheap, one-off photo print) on Anvil 100% organic cotton T-shirts. I proudly wear the Mama’s Restaurant shirt (from Vachss’s Burke novels), so I can vouch for their quality.
As I said, I get nothing from this; all profits go to Protect. But you do: in addition to getting an awesome shirt, if you post a photo of yourself wearing it, I’ll send you a free signed copy of the Eddie LaCrosse book of your choice! So pass the word, share on your social networks, and let the world know about Angelina’s Tavern.
