Writer's Kit #3 is here, w/ more chances to win a signed-by-Neil Gaiman bag!

We had such fun with the first & second Writer's Travel Kit, which quickly sold out, we designed a third set. We only have 100 of these-- they will go fast.

A lucky clicky pen w/Neil's writing advice printed in silver, a tote bag, 12 postcards and a new luggage tag. All the traveling writer needs to get around.

The new luggage tag is hard recycled plastic to withstand all of the rigors of travel.

The tag features a quote from Neil:

"The world always seems brighter when you've just made something that wasn't there before..."

3 DREAM postcards, 3 WISH postcards, 3 HOPE postcards and 3 FIRE postcards. (or let me know in the memo, i'll make 12 of whatever you prefer) These are the newly reprinted HOPE cards, I went with Chris Riddell's original lighter-in-color version.

This lovely tote (made entirely out of recycled plastic bottles), will hold what you need to carry with you perfectly. The straps are reinforced, to carry everything from a change of clothes to your bowling ball. Silver ink on black, w/a protection dragon!

CLICK HERE TO ORDER.

(tote bag WILL fit the gorgeous ABSOLUTE SANDMAN #1, but sorry to report, that giant book does not come with the kit)

to further sweeten the deal, when Neil was in town, I asked him to sign 15 of the hundred bags in silver sharpie and I will send them in random orders. I thought it would be like the Willy Wonky golden ticket, and a nice thank-you to his readers.

TO BE CLEAR: they are not all signed, only one in fifteen have been signed!

this is what the lucky fifteen look like! There is actually a pretty good chance of getting a signed Neil bag for a steal.

We are packing ALL the kits up and throwing them in a big bin, so we will not know who gets the signed versions. Hope you will post your prizes on the Neverwear Facebook page.

(i also post discount codes over on that page- worth a visit)

Note to add: we are offering FIVE signed versions which will directly benefit 100% to The Gaiman Foundation--see under separate heading, look in the product line! for that one you can click CLICK HERE.

Fellow writers! remember Neil's brilliant advice on writing: "finish things"-

happy new year 2016!

hello all you fine readers!

hope your new year's eve was wonderful. (we went to the last ever Motley Crue show here in LA--still a little sleepy)

Neil posted a mini-video reading his New Year's Wish, see it here.

Last year, the so-talented David Mack did a watercolor illustration of the New Year's Wish and we sold out in three days. This year we did a second printing of it, David added a frame and a blue wash~

we are selling it connected with a secondary companion print- get one for $28 and the second is only $10 dollars more, for a limited time.

We will disconnect the two prints on January 3rd, so if you like, get them early! Order them here.

updates on the Neil Gaiman/David Mack prints!

Hello all, a little update on the new DAVID MACK/NEIL GAIMAN print shipments.

We had pre-postaged/packed many of the tubes and now we are putting the prints in the tubes.

We had to hand-number, hand-stamp 4000 pieces-- they should all be at the post office by Monday morning Dec 14th. For orders made after the 15th Dec, we can't be sure that packages will arrive by Christmas, we shall try, but can't guarantee.

If you have been following our Facebook page, or our twitter page you have seen many of the photos from Neil's visit here in LA.

*whew-- a whirlwind! I even got him in front of the Breaking Bad RV which is parked on the Sony lot...

You will also have seen that I asked Neil to sneak sign a small amount of the DREAM prints and have slid them into the pile. You may just get one in your order.

The print bundles will separate on Monday at midnight PST, meaning no longer will you be able to buy one at 28$ and get the second for only $10 more dollars-

the Dream will become $28 and the Wish will become $38, so that's a nice savings if you want both... click on this to get to the WISH/DREAM prints!

thanks so much for your support- your moneys have gone on to fund protecting the lions and tigers of our planet via BLACKJAGUARWHITETIGERand freedom of speech via Comic Book Legal Defense Fund! also furthering the careers of artists via Gaiman Foundation.

we are so grateful for you!

NEW! dreamy David Mack/Neil Gaiman mash-up plus a reprinting of WISH.

This dreamy watercolor by David Mack perfectly illustrates Neil's words "A book is a dream that you hold in your hands."

We are offering this limited edition full color print in an easily framable size of 8.5" x 11".

Printed right here in Hollywood, California.

Get it on the presale price of $25 or buy it with the second edition WISH print for only $35. This sale will be up for the next four days until Dec 1, 2015. Also I posted a 10% code on the blog/twitter/instagram. follow me for these little money-love-bombs. (@neverwear on twitter etc) (easy access for code, which you enter at checkout: Readerlove10)

(NOTE TO ADD: PRESALE PRICE IS OVER, but still offering both prints for a deal at $40)

I love that she is floating with cats while reading.

also here is the second run version of Neil's New Year's Wish print also done by David. We did sell out the entire run last year....this print will have a run of 1000 at a size of 11" x 17".

all sold unsigned with the Neverwear stamp embossed.

CLICK HERE TO ORDER!

so grateful for these two visionaries.

a portion of the money collected will go to THE GAIMAN FOUNDATION, Neil's support of the art community, they do a great funding of the CBLDF as well-- and another portion will go to BLACKJAGUARWHITETIGER, a big cat reserve in Mexico.

We will be ahead of the game this year as I am NOT ON TOUR! We expect to get the prints in about ten business days, and will have the labels and tubes all prepped beforehand.

BRAND NEW! Writer's Travel pack #2 (plus a good chance to win a signed-by-Neil bag)

We had such fun with the first Writer's Travel Pack, which quickly sold out, we designed a new set. We only have 100 of these-- they will go fast.

A lucky clicky pen w/Neil's advice printed in silver, a tote bag, 12 postcards and a luggage tag. All the traveling writer needs to get around.

4 WISH postcards, 4 HOPE postcards and 4 FIRE postcards. (or let me know, i'll make 12 of whatever you prefer) These are the newly reprinted HOPE cards, I went with Chris Riddell's original lighter-in-color version.

**(in other news, I am sending the reprints out to those who ordered, if yours doesn't show up soon, let me know! neverwear@gaiman.net)**

This lovely tote (made entirely out of recycled plastic bottles), will hold what you need to carry with you perfectly. The straps are reinforced, to carry everything from a change of clothes to your bowling ball. Silver ink on black, w/a protection dragon!

(it WILL fit the gorgeous ABSOLUTE SANDMAN #1, but sorry to report, that giant book does not come with the kit)

The luggage tag is metal to withstand all of the rigors of travel. We've had them on our road crew suitcases for three years and they're still hanging on. Dream dangerously, team.

to further sweeten the deal, when I saw Neil at the Long Beach event, I asked him to sign 10 of the hundred bags in silver sharpie and I will send them in random orders. I thought it would be like the Willy Wonky golden ticket, and a nice thank-you to his readers. TO BE CLEAR: they are not all signed, only one in ten have been signed!

this is what the lucky ten look like! There is actually a pretty good chance of getting a signed Neil bag for a steal.

Writers! remember Neil's advice on writing, "finish things"- CLICK HERE TO ORDER. enjoy.

mistakes were made...plus All Hallow's Read.

Hi lovely readers~

it has been brought to my attention, there is a mistake on the HOPE cards.

Am having them reprinted now.

It was so tiny, I honestly did not see it when I approved the proof.

However, I can send out the “collector’s items” for you in the meantime if you order in the next two weeks while we wait for the reprinted version.

to order the postcard set, click here. click here)

**Watch your mailbox if you have already ordered them!

Still free shipping! (even though we're taking a hit on the international orders... )

My apologies to the talented Chris Riddell & to you.

Also, as Halloween approaches...

the give-a-scary-book tradition continues..

a little trick-or-treat 4-pack in honor of the upcoming All Hallow's Read.

We held a contest a few years back to see what you talented geniuses would come up with-

Sean Von Gorman, creater of Houdini, Pawn Shop & Toe Tag Riot "arted-up" an adorable 8" x 10" one sheet of a lil' Neil out trick-or-treating for books & candy with a ghostly buddy.

Sean also illustrated a bookmark.

In addition, you will get these full-color super-cute stickers:

littlest witch art by Kate Laird & sweet-scary skeleton art by Ayeshia L. Rubio.

they come in a sturdy kraft protect-o package.

you can get your All Hallow's Read set for $12.95 and I will throw in one of each of the new postcards...mistake and all!

ORDER HERE.

Thanks, friends. It's always an adventure over here at the Neverwear Treehouse!

catching up, back from SDCC.

Hello beauties.

Am just back from ComicCon, where I was working to benefit Neil's Gaiman Foundation and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. I cut my weekend there short to get back to this--even missed the Game of Thrones panel (with a saved seat in Hall H)--:(

What a great visit it was, though, saw so many people and found a few amazing new artists to work with in Artist Alley-- stay tuned for these updates when I am finished with ship job, I'll do a photo post.

People are starting to post that their Hope prints are arriving, hurray! However, I am about 3/4 the way through and there are still unshipped orders...

When I posted the print, I tried to be very clear about the fact that it wasn't going to be on my doorstep until at least ten days after announcement, maybe more depending on holiday.

They arrived 3-4 days ago to me. I had to number and stamp them all by hand, which takes a little chunk of time.

That's why we give the 30% pre-sale price, we are bargaining for your patience.

We have been shipping them as fast as possible with 3 full time employees. Even so, we are definitely not Amazon. (how DO they do it?)

Please know we are very grateful to you- suffering a little Irish guilt over here.

Ok! back to the diamond mines. I'll leave you with a faux Thor that I followed until he smiled at me...
