***** UPDATE 4/27/21 ***** We have a winner for the third of ten ARC giveaways. Holly. was lucky number 1281 out of over 1400 entries, and she has already e-mailed me back to claim her ARC and freebie! Come back Friday for a new question to answer to enter the next giveaway! Congratulations, Holly! And thank you everyone who played along.
In celebration of earth day, I want to know, is your library primarily paper…or plastic? (electronic) And because I like giving things away, if you email Tim your answer, you will be in the flash-giveaway for a bound-manuscript ARC of Million Dollar Demon. (My library is strictly paper simply because I enjoy the tactile touch and need to break from the screen when relaxing.) Want to enter? Here’s how this week!
Using an email you have access to for the next five days, email Tim at <firstname.lastname@example.org> Put “Paper or Plastic” in the subject line so we know you’re entering the contest. In the email, tell me if you have more paper books in your possession at this very second, or electronic. (Tell me here as well to help boost shares and get you some bonus points–which get you nothing except the chance to brag about your library.) One entry per household please.
I will cut off entries at midnight, PST on Monday, April 26. I will announce the winner on Tuesday morning, AND email them for the address they want me to mail the bound manuscript ARC to as well as find out if and how they want me to sign it. Winners will have until the coming Thursday midnight to get back to me to claim the ARC and tell me their mailing address. If I don’t hear from you by Thursday midnight, the ARC goes back in the pool and I will give away two next week.
Out of the U.S? You can still enter. ARCs have no cash value, though they may get held up in customs forever. Books will go out UPS or USPS, whatever is faster. Chance of winning depends upon how many enter. Winners will be chosen by a random number generator, and I can’t be responsible for mail that goes astray.
That’s it. But do come back next Friday to enter again with a new question. I’ve got a bunch of these to give away until release day on June 15th. To clarify, these are bound manuscript ARCS, not the soft-cover, book-like ARCS we are used to. As far as I know, there will only be ten of these in existence. End of story. Boom!
If you want to skip the chaos and pre-order a signed, personalized copy, I have a list of my favorite stores. If you like your local store where they are, please consider ordering online from them. Not just my book, but any book. If you want a signed-to-you copy, Nicola’s is our only outlet this year. You can find them at the same link. I will have beautiful, signed book plates at Mysterious Galaxy, Murder by the Book, and the University Bookstore.
