It's time guys.
The post you've been waiting for.
THE LODESTAR PRE-ORDER GIVEAWAY IS HERE!!!!
Now that we're three weeks away from the launch of LODESTAR (AHHHH–WHERE DOES TIME GO???), it's time to make sure you know how to get your free swaggish goodies!
(And warning: as always, this is a epically long post with LOTS of important information, so make sure you read it all carefully so you don't miss your opportunity)
(Note: if you're planning on coming to one of my signings, you don't need to take advantage of this giveaway, since I'll be giving out the same goodies in the main swag pack at my events. Go HERE to see if I'll be doing a signing near you)
I will also choose twenty-five (25) of you at random and give you this: (yes, that's in *addition* to the other swag!)
And because I like to keep things simple, I don't require proof of purchase for the giveaway. If you say you pre-ordered LODESTAR, I trust you. But remember, liars have to lick lockers that taste like Iggy breath–meanwhile honest people get to eat big bowls of Starflower stew! 🙂 I also won't be announcing the winners of the additional goodies. If you win the extra swag, you'll find out when your prize arrives in the mail.
This giveaway is open internationally. It also doesn't matter if you pre-order an eBook or a hardcover. As long as it's LODESTAR, it counts. 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.
(and scroll down for one more option before you make your decision)
I also know lots of you pre-ordered your copies of LODESTAR months and months ago (which is so incredibly awesome, btw.) And if that's the case, you can definitely still fill out this form and get your free swag pack. But if you haven't ordered LODESTAR already, you must pre-order your copy before 11:59 pm (pacific time) on 10/31/16 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 pre-order five books, you can get five swag packs. Just make sure you tell me how many copies you pre-ordered so that I know how many swag packs to send you.
Also: since I'll be on tour when this contest ends, there *will* be a delay on when your swag gets mailed to you. It won't come with your book, since your book will be coming from wherever you ordered it from, and then I will be mailing the swag separately as soon as I'm home from tour. I PROMISE I'll have them all in the mail before November 30th. (most likely much sooner). And I always post on my social media when they go in the mail, so you'll know when to keep an eye out for it. Sorry for the small wait, I can't mail stuff while I'm traveling.
(And again, if you haven't checked to see if I'm touring in your area, see my events page HERE. I hope I'll get to meet at least some of 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'm also only going to answer questions that haven't already been covered by this post, so please make sure you've read this post carefully before you ask).
And …. I guess that's it. Though I do want to once again thank all of you for incredible support. This series keeps growing and growing and it's all because of you. I can't wait for you to read LODESTAR. I'm so incredibly proud of it.
Only three weeks to go–AHHHHHH!!!!!
*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.
