I can't believe how close we're getting to the release of LET THE WIND RISE (only three more weeks–OMG!) So of course that means it's time for the giveaway you've been waiting oh-so-patiently for–THE LET THE WIND RISE PRE-ORDER GIVEAWAY!!!!
(Please note: this is a LONG post with LOTS of important instructions, and you'll want to make sure you read it all carefully so you don't miss your opportunity)
Okay–here goes. Prepare for ALL THE INFORMATION.
(and yes, I will be doing something like this for LODESTAR's release–but that won't be posted until October so please don't ask me about it now. My brain can only handle one book release at a time)
Which is why everyone who pre-orders a copy of LET THE WIND RISE before the cut-off date (4/25/16) AND fills out the form at the end of this post*, will get these awesome LET THE WIND RISE goodies mailed directly to them:
I know some of you have noticed that the covers for this series have changed between book 2 and book 3, and are now wondering if you should get any of the new paperbacks so you'll have the matching set. Or, maybe you're new to the series and realizing it's silly to buy book 3 if you don't have book 1 or book 2 yet. Either way, I wanted to do SOMETHING to make it a little more fun if you decide to buy the other books in the series.
SO. If you buy a copy of LET THE SKY FALL or a copy of LET THE STORM BREAK (or both!) between now and the cutoff day for this giveaway, you can get bonus 5×7 postcards–featuring the AMAZING art that I commissioned–and additional signed bookplates. (and yes, I will count ebook or hardcover purchases of either book as well as the paperback, so long as those purchases were made during the giveaway time period of 4/1/16 – 4/25/16)
Which means–if you buy LET THE SKY FALL (in addition to pre-ordering LET THE WIND RISE) I'll include this beautiful, DOUBLE SIDED postcard featuring the art by Laura Hollingsworth along with an extra signed bookplate! (yes, this will be in *addition* to the other swag pack for pre-ordering LET THE WIND RISE)
I'm also willing to mail the swag packs anywhere–even internationally. And it doesn't matter if you pre-order an eBook or a hardcover of LET THE WIND RISE. And you can buy your 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 your copies months and months ago. (which is so incredibly awesome, btw.) And if that's the case, don't worry, you can definitely still fill out this form and get your free swag. But if you haven't bought it already, you must pre-order your copy before 11:59 pm (pacific time) on 4/25/16 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–as long as you buy the corresponding number of books. So if you buy five books, you can get five swag packs. Just make sure you tell me how many copies you bought so that I know how many swag packs to send you. Same goes for how many copies of LET THE SKY FALL and/or LET THE STORM BREAK you buy during the giveaway time period.
One final thing: I know some of you would prefer having an actual signed hardcover (personalized to you and everything) rather than a bookplate to stick in. And if that's the case, I'd recommend pre-ordering your copy from one of the places I'll be touring to. Many of them take orders (I know for a fact that Changing Hands is awesome about it). And I'll give them the swag to include when they ship your item to you. The only caveat to that is, you need to order your book before my event, so that I'll be able to sign it while I'm there. And if you decide to go that route, you wouldn't need to fill out the form at the end of this post. The store will take care of it for you.
Um……….. I *think* that covers everything–but if I missed something, feel free to ask in the comments. (note: I will only answer questions posted in the comments on my website. If you're reading this on Goodreads or any of the other places it feeds out to, make sure you go to shannonmessenger.com to ask your questions)
And …. I guess that's it. Though I do want to once again thank all of you for incredible support. I know some of you have been waiting a loooooooooooooooooooooooong time to see how Vane and Audra's story ends, and I'm SO INCREDIBLY EXITED to finally share it with you.
Only three weeks left until LET THE WIND RISE–EEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*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
