Exciting News, Free Stuff, & a Couple Giveaways
I’m always looking for ways to make each new release fun and a little bit different. The second book in the Watersong series, Lullaby,will be out November 27, 2012, and I wracked my brain for a way to say thank you to fans and make the release special.Here’s what I’ve come up with.
The first is a special short story Forgotten Lyrics set in the Watersong world. Forgotten Lyrics is $1.99 wherever eBooks are sold, but as a special treat for my fans you can read it HERE free of charge for a very limited time. It’s already been free for a few days, and I think it only has a couple days left, so check it out free while you can.
And now to the NEW exciting news. The entire first printing of the new Lullaby hardcover will feature a special collector’s signature. As a reader I love adding signed books to my collection and wanted to do that for people who buy my book.
But signing thousands of books would be tough, especially when I am working on Elegy, the final book in the series. Plus I would feel bad for the person who received the 50,000th signature – it probably wouldn’t be readable. (If I’m being honest, everything after the 50th signature would be pretty lame).
So my publisher and I found a cool way to do it. I signed a few sheets of paper, each one with a different signature and then an actual pen traced my signature into all of the books. I don’t completely understand how they did it, but it looks really awesome. They completely duplicated the way the ink looks from the pen I used and everything. It’s kinda crazy actually.
And onto even more fun news! Since Lullaby is coming out right around the corner (it’s like two weeks away), I thought it’d be fun to do a little giveaway before the release. I’ll be giving away TEN signed hardcovers of Wake (the first book in the Watersong series), and ONE hardcover of Lullaby signed with a personalized message. Both giveaways will go from now until November 21st. Sorry, it’s open to the US & Canada only.
