One of the marketing folks at Crown, Roxanne, just set up a sweepstakes for my new book, Paradox Bound (out in hardcover just four weeks from today). I happen to think it’s a pretty cool book, and it’s gotten starred reviews from Kirkus and Publishers Weekly, sooooo… Who knows.
Anyway, go over to the PRH website before Thursday, August 31st and enter your info and you’re now in the hat to be selected for one of a hundred bound galleys of Paradox Bound. Totally free. No surveys or mailing lists. Unless you want to be on the mailing list. There’s a tab for that.
Now, what does this mean for you, occasional browser of the ranty blog?
Well, you may remember we did something similar about two years ago with The Fold. This is a chance to see an earlier draft (the first layout, essentially) and the final draft side by side. You can read the book, then go through the earlier version and find all the places my editor and I changed things. Every tweak and adjustment as we prepared the book to go to the printer. And there’s a fair amount of them, so it’s a worthwhile exercise. And all it costs you is…
Just go sign up before Thursday. Granted, there’s only a hundred copies to be won, yeah. But let’s be realistic—I’m not J. K. Rowling. I can’t picture your odds getting any lower that a 1 in 3 chance of winning. Really, I’ll be thrilled if it reaches a 50-50 situation.
Also worth mentioning that I’ll be doing a ton of signings that release week. Borderlands in San Francisco, Books Inc. in Mountain View, Pages in Manhattan Beach, Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego. Please preorder a hardcover from them and then come by so I can scribble in it for you.
