You probably know that I'm a big fan of independent bookstores--after all, I grew up in one. I had my first job in my parents' bookstore, visited indies on family vacations, and still do a lot of my writing in my local indie's coffee shop. Every bookseller I've met has been supportive of writers, and to thank them, I'm going to do an I HEART INDIES pre-order campaign for HER DARK CURIOSITY.
It's simple, and everyone wins until supplies run out! If you preorder a copy of HER DARK CURIOSITY from any independent bookstore in the US between Nov 25 and Jan 28, you get this custom tea pack as a free gift. It includes "Sweet Madness," a vanilla ginger rooibos tea with a tropical flair custom blended for THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER, and "Dark Secrets," a nutmeg orange rooibos tea with a spicy holiday aroma custom blended for HER DARK CURIOSITY.
Once you've preordered, fill out the form below to redeem your gift. I don't require proof of purchase, but you must list which indie you purchased the book from, and I know a lot of indie booksellers, so be honest. Word gets around!
Not sure where your closest independent bookstore is?
If you'd like to pre-order a signed or personalized copy of HER DARK CURIOSITY, contact Highland Books in Brevard, NC by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 828-884-2424. That's my family's bookstore. They'll throw in a bookmark for free. Of course, these qualify for the pre-order campaign.
Quantity limited to first 200 entries. Open to US residents only; sorry, no international shipping. This promotion is for books pre-ordered at independent bookstores only, but if you prefer e-books, audiobooks, or to purchase your copy from Amazon or Barnes and Noble, that's great too! There will be additional contests for all readers at a later date.
