    (Book)Mark of the Sinner

    Have you ever heard of that wacky 16th century crowdfunding idea "selling indulgences"? That's the one where someone from the church would offer to reduce your sentence in purgatory (or even grant you outright salvation) if you made the right donation. It was a funding stream for the Crusades, the cathedrals, and--who knows--maybe some really decadent orgies, too.

    We think indulgences are ready for a comeback.So, donate $15 and we'll send you a certificate good for the erasure of one minor sin. Guilty of taking too many selfies (The Sin of Pride)? You're covered. Guilty of eating the entire package of Oreos? (The Sin of Gluttony)? You're covered. Disclaimer: NOT good for the erasure of guilt for actual crimes. Even we have standards.

    Comes with your physical and digital copies of The Sadist's Bible and a bookmark depicting one of His chosen broken angels.

    Includes:
    • The Sadist's Bible in ePub, Mobi, and PDF formats.
    • Physical copy of The Sadist's Bible
    • Sadist's Bible Bookmark
    • Indulgence: good for erasing one sin.
