Now that it’s February, the publication date for my debut novel is just two months away, which means it’s time to share the White Rose pre-order gifts I have planned! I’m so thankful for everyone who wants to read, so this will be my turn to give back to you.
How to Pre-order
Make your pre-order by 11:59 p.m. EST on April 1, 2019 at …
- My local independent bookstore, Porter Square Books. I’ve attended more book launches at PSB than I can count, and I just love the knowledgeable, friendly staff (and the fact that the store is one of the most enthusiastic settings for the HONK! band to parade through).
- Any independent bookstore (I love indies!). You can find the closest one to you on Indiebound and pick it up in the store–how cool is that?
- Any library. I personally pick up a ton of the books I read at my local branch. Did you know that you can make a request at your local library to purchase a book? Getting my book into libraries where even more readers can find it is a huge dream of mine, so if you prefer to make a library request, that will also qualify.
- One of the larger outlets. I realize many people make their book purchases at Amazon or Barnes & Noble or others I haven’t listed, so these will count as well. Also, for my international friends, books can be ordered and shipped through Book Depository.
To receive your gifts, send your full name, mailing address, and proof of your pre-order to WhiteRose.Preorders@gmail.com. A screenshot or photo of the pre-order or library request is fine. Now on to the gifts themselves!
First off, everyone who enters will receive a beautiful bookmark and a sticker. This part of the giveaway is open internationally! I truly appreciate the support of all readers, and I’m so glad I can at least send along these goodies to readers farther afield.
Then, along with these swag packs, winners of the following gifts will be chosen randomly among entrants based in the U.S. (because shipping costs).
- Three third-place winners will receive a white rose enamel pin in addition to the swag pack. Aren’t they beautiful?
- Two second-place winners will receive rose-themed notebooks in addition to the swag pack. Useful for jotting down any and all thoughts!
- One grand-prize winner will receive a mini Playmobil figure of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in addition to the swag pack. Goethe was an 18th-19th century German author whose words inspired the White Rose to take action, and I just loved that his action figure shows him writing.
