The Long-Awaited EVERBLAZE Pre-Order Swag giveaway!!!

YAY--it's that time again!

Now that we are only three weeks away from the launch of EVERBLAZE (*pauses to flail*), it's time for the annual Pre-Order Swag giveaway!!!!!!

**FLINGS CONFETTI**

This is my way of trying to make up for the fact that it's simply impossible for me to tour to every city. So everyone who pre-orders a copy of EVERBLAZE before the cut-off date AND fills out the form at the end of this post*, will get this awesome EVERBLAZE swag mailed directly to them:

In case you can't tell from the picture, that is:
1 hand signed, limited edition Iggy a l'orange postcard art print
1 hand signed (and personalized, if you'd like) EVERBLAZE bookplate
1 EVERBLAZE bookmark

And yes, EVERYONE who pre-orders the book and fills out the form will get that!!!!!

But wait--there's so much more!

 I will also choose ten (10) of you at random and give you this: (yes, that's in *addition* to the other swag!)

And again, in case you can't tell, that is:
1 sheet of four EVERBLAZE stickers
4 EVERBLAZE mini cards featuring Sophie and Fitz

As if THAT weren't awesome enough, I have one more prize. Five (5) additional winners will get all of the swaggish goodies up above, plus one of these:



The shiny, super-awesome Black Swan mirrors I'll be giving out at the official launch party! (for another picture of what they look like, go HERE) These might be the coolest swag I've ever seen, so trust me, you want to win one.

You don't have to do anything special to enter for the extra goodies. I'll choose the winners randomly from all the people who fill out the form for their swag. So that's the only requirement: you must fill out the form at the end of this post. Which of course means you also must pre-order a copy of EVERBLAZE

And because I like to keep things simple, I'm not requiring proof of purchase. If you say you bought it, I trust you. I'm counting on you guys to be honest. And remember, lying makes an alicorn poop on your head--but telling the truth makes it rain mallowmelt and Prattles! :) I also won't be announcing the additional-goodies winners online. If you're one of the lucky ones who wins the extra swag, you'll find out when your prize arrives in the mail.

I'm also willing to mail the prizes anywhere--even internationally. And it doesn't matter if you pre-order an eBook or a hardcover. As long as it's EVERBLAZE, it counts. And you can buy that copy anywhere books are sold. Of course I recommend shopping local from your favorite indie and supporting a local business. But it's up to you where you want to shop.

I also know lots of you pre-ordered yours months and months ago. (which is awesome, btw.) And if that's the case, you can definitely still fill out this form and get your free swag. But you must pre-order your copy before 11:59 pm (pacific time) on 11/3/14 AND fill out the form before then. After that I'll close the form and there will be no more ways to enter.

And there's no limit on how many swag packs you can get. If you buy five books, you can get five swag packs (also five chances to be one of the winners for the extra goodies.) Just make sure you fill out the form separately for each copy you pre-order, so that I know how many swag packs to send you.

Also: since I'm leaving for tour the same day this contest ends, there *will* be a slight delay on when your swag gets mailed to you. But I promise I'll have them all in the mail before November 30th. (most likely much sooner). Sorry for the delay, I can't deal with mailing stuff while I'm traveling.

(And by the way--if you haven't checked to see if I'm touring in your area, see my events page HERE. Still a few more tour dates to announce, but several of them are there--I'm getting to go so many fun places!)

Um........... I *think* that covers everything--but if I missed something, feel free to ask in the comments.

And I just want to end by thanking all of you for your enthusiasm and support for this series. It is SO FUN watching it grow and find new readers. Thank you for telling your teachers and friends, and posting your edits on instagram, and sending me your fan art, and all of the other amazing things you guys do. Keep doing what you're doing--its working like a charm. And I can't wait for you to read EVERBLAZE.

Only three weeks left--AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, here's the form you need to enter,

*Please note: you must be 13 years or older to fill out this form. If you're not, please have your parent or guardian fill it out for you

**FORM HAS BEEN REMOVED BECAUSE THIS GIVEAWAY HAS CLOSED. Thanks to all you entered!*

  7. Does that mean every where you go for the Everblaze tours gets a Black Swan mirror too, or only the ones who can go to the Launch Party?

    1. I'll be bringing a couple to each EVERBLAZE tour stop to give away as raffle prizes. But I won't be giving them away to everyone, mostly because it'd be too hard traveling with all those heavy, fragile mirrors. So there will be a chance to win a couple at each tour stop, as well as several online giveaways too. :)
