If you visited the Armada Wars stall at Sci-Feb, you may have picked up a business card. You'll find a coupon code on the back of it... but it's not just any old coupon code, oh no.
This is a persistent, mutating coupon! Throughout the year, as new items come onto our store, the advantage it gives you will change periodically. So for example upon the release of From Shattered Stars, you will get a preferential rate on the paperback.
All we ask is that you keep it to yourselves. Convention visitors are special!
The first offer is a whopping 30% off all posters, which includes value packs!
There's loads of information on this site about the series, broken down into very logical sections, and the best place for a newcomer to start is with the about page.
As you may have read, Armada Wars will be making its debut at the Sci-Feb convention in February 2017, with plans to attend at a number of other events including Comic Con.
Preparations have started months in advance, and here's some of the kit that's been acquired to make our participation both smooth and slick.
Not pictured: Haribo.
Armada Wars is now signed up to the PayPal Here programme, which also means it is now a PayPal Check-In location.
What does this mean for you the customer/fan? RCV will start to promote the Armadaverse in the real world in 2017, so you'll be able to get paperback books, posters, or other paraphernalia signed right in front of you. This site and the official Facebook page will pre-announce all appearances.
Thanks to the little guy shown in the image, payments can now be made in person by swiping a card, chip and pin, contactless, Apple Pay, cash/cheque, and of course PayPal transfer.
If you're a fellow indie author, or a small/home business owner, I recommend taking a look at PayPal Here.
The card reader works in conjunction with the PayPal Here app, which lets businesses put together a product catalogue. It allows product options, tipping, tax calculation, Check In, and email or print receipts, plus it can integrate with the Constant Contact service so that customers can be added to your CC mailing list (if they so desire).
