Sign Up for Swag and Review Copies!

Guys--I promise not to turn this into the All-AtU-All-The-Time channel. One last thing, then we're moving on to different subjects! Sorry for the extra booky news lately!

Even if you're not a book blogger, please read this post for a chance to get free stuff! Free for everyone--not just book bloggers!

So, lately I've been getting a lot of requests from book bloggers for ARCs. And...uh....I don't have any more left to give. I didn't get many to start with, and they went FAST! But if you want an ARC, never fear!

  1. There ARE going to be some contests  on this blog to win one! And they'll be open internationally!
  2. There are contests open RIGHT NOW to win one: here, here, and here.
  3. I'm also taking up information that I will pass on to Penguin.

Basically, I'm making a list of book bloggers to send to Penguin, and Penguin will then decide what to do with any remaining ARCs. This doesn't guarantee that you'll get an ARC, but I'll make sure Penguin knows that you're interested. 

However, I've been having trouble keeping track of everything, and it's resulted in a lot of back and forth in emails. SO...I made a simple form to fill out! Then it goes straight into a spreadsheet that can then go straight to Penguin! So: wanna sign up for an ARC? Click the link below!

But, why stop there?

Because I'd like to do something for everyone, book blogger or not. I'm not sure what I can do--it's going to depend on how many people sign up for stuff--but at the very least I'm going to send out some postcards. I'd also like to send out some swag--bookplates? bookmarks? Maybe a special print newsletter? I don't know! It's a mystery! A surprise! So, if you'd like to sign up to win free surprises from me in the mail (and NEVER spam or junk mail), then just sign up here!

Whoops! I forgot to include a spot for country code for my outside-the-US peeps! If you're not in the US, please just put your country code in the zip code section. Sorry!

Beth, thank you so much for your generosity and for doing your best to provide us with multiple opportunities to "earn" an ARC. You are total awesomesauce! :-)

You have been wonderful and understanding about ARC. You are my very first ARC that I have actually wrote the author and asked for one. I have signed up for every contest out there to win this book. I am grateful for the opportunities you have given everyone to win one. I just wish it was out now because I would be at the bookstore buying one right now I just want to read it. Shellie

Great idea! I'm looking forward to reading this, whether in ARC form or when it comes out and I buy it. :)

There wasn't a place to list Country in your swag form, but I stuck it in the Zip code section.

I stuck my country in the State form, in brackets. :P

Anyway, I let you know in the form that I've already received an ARC and just want swag!! You're really fantastic for setting this up, though. I'll let people know about this on my blog!

Beth, you are so awesome. What a great idea. =)

Casey McCormick said...

So tempting to request an ARC but since I'm not a regular reviewer, I'll stick with the swag or newsletter or whatever it ends up being and review it when it comes out. : ) You are teh awesome. <3

Thanks for sharing all of the ways to get a copy of your book, and for passing on our info to Penguin! FYI - I found this through Cass's site (Words on Paper).

Steph Su said...

You are lovely and I adore you and I am so freaking excited for your book. (How could Penguin keep us hanging like that after THAT first chapter?!?!?!?!?!? AHHHHHH!!!) Anyway. Going to fill out that form now. Eeeeeeee.

I entered my address all weird (street was fine, but I put my town and county in the city section, country in the state section and post code in the zip code bit *facepalm* - I live in Scotland).

But anyway, this is so awesome. I desperately want an ARC of this, but I can't wait for the actual release because the cover is pretty much made of gorgeous so I can't wait for the finished copy to be out. :)
