Discontinued!



Why? Because I wasn't happy with it. Due to my impatience with researching book printing options, I made the mistake of going to a Kinko's and getting color prints on laser paper. The quality was decent enough, but the price per book was much too high. As a result, I made another mistake and charged $20 a book to recoup my costs. Not the smartest move for a relatively unknown artist.

There is good news though. I think I have found a better option. Over the next few months, I'll be putting together a new and improved book. Glossy paper, more pages, professionally bound with a hard cover, and more importantly... a cheaper price tag. As an added bonus, joining me in this book is my talented friend, Jeremiah Alcorn. Between the two of us, we're aiming to fill about 50 plus pages worth of material.

So what about the people who have already purchased Samiches 2? Well, in order to make ammends for my brain fart on this last book, I'll be sending each one of you a copy of the new book free of charge. Hopefully this keep you all from wanting to kill me in my sleep. Heh heh.

Also wanted to mention that those who have ordered Samiches 2, but have yet to recieve their copy WILL still get theirs (and be added to the list for the new book). All recent orders went out today, so check your mail soon.

Thanks for your patience and support!

-Steve.

Getting stuff privately printed can be a pain in the butt! Good luck in your new venture, I am sad I missed Samiches. If you find an extra, please let me know.

Yo! You should definitely check out this site for publishing... http://www.lulu.com/
it's the Cafe press of book printing. Worth investigating. I'm a big fan of your style. I'm sure to follow your career as you move on. I remember seeing your posts on the Sketchbook sessions forums.

Can't wait to add another Lambey book to the collection, but this time it's with Miah? The possibilities abound for name's for the book. Whatever the name, it's bona fide.

Alright! A free book! I was getting pissed as I was reading on that I spent so much money for the first one and you were going to do a new better one. Just Kidding! I like the samiches 2 and it was well worth it. Good luck in publishing the next copy look forward to getting it. If it doesn't come out till comicon next year and your at the show give it to me there and I'll trade you a print if you want.
