When Sascha Martin’s Time Machine finally launches, it will be available for a short time on preorder, and at a discount.

It’s been more than a year in the making. The drawings are done, the text is placed, we’ve coded the interactive elements, and now Manuela is adding colour to each page.

Sascha Martin’s Time Machine is getting close.

I wanted to let you know, and give you the opportunity to register for an alert when the book goes on pre-order, so you can buy it at a discounted price. Just sign up for John’s author mailing list, and I’ll email you the moment I know the date for preorders so you can mark it in your calendar and grab that discount.

And in case you’ve forgotten by then, I’ll send you another alert on the day preorders open.

Then you’re all set. Now you can relax and read about the story.

Sascha Martin’s Time Machine
