I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!! And it's *possible* I might add a couple of other things.
I know that *is* a fairly Southern California dominant list. And I know some of you might be a *little* disappointed that I'm not coming to your state. All I can say is SORRY. I'm a *wee* bit behind on writing and deadlines right now, and I learned last year that it definitely comes back to bite me if I don't scale back on the events/travel and focus on the writing a little more.
I'm hoping to branch out a bit wider in the summer and fall, after I catch up a bit--and I promise if I do I will keep you all posted.
But I also wanted to TRY to make it up to those of you whose states I won't be visiting. And so, I give you: THE LET THE STORM BREAK PRE-ORDER GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!
Anyone who pre-orders LET THE STORM BREAK before it releases and fills out the form at the end of this post will get this:
1 *signed* LET THE STORM BREAK Bookplate (which can be personalized with your name)
1 *signed* limited edition LET THE STORM BREAK bookmark
As usual, I'm not requiring proof of purchase to enter--though I AM hoping you'll do the right thing and be honest. And I'm willing to mail the prizes anywhere--even internationally. All you have to do is pre-order the book and fill out the form at the end of this post before 11:59 pm on 3/3/14. And if you already pre-ordered the book before you found out about this contest, that totally still counts. It doesn't matter when you ordered it, just that you did. Also: there's no limit on how many times you can win. If you buy five books and fill out the form five times, then you get 5 prizes (also, you're my new favorite person EVER!)
I *think* that covers everything--but if I missed something, feel free to ask any questions you may have in the comments.
And I just want to end with my deepest and sincerest thanks for all your amazing support for my books. You all totally blow me away (hee) and I CAN'T WAIT for you guys to continue with Vane and Audra's story and experience the haboobs, mainly so you'll know I'm being inappropriate when I make haboob jokes. (well, okay, I'm being a LITTLE inappropriate. But... can you really blame me?)
Only a few weeks left--EEEEEEEE!!!
**Form has been removed because this giveaway has ended. Huge thanks to everyone who entered!**
