Want exclusive swag for A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU? Check out the pre-order promotion!

Posted on October 13, 2014

We’re at three weeks until A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU makes its debut in the United States. (It’s already out in the wild here in the Philippines, where I’ve arrived for my tour in a couple of days — and already in its second printing. How exciting is that?) Well, if you’re eager to read the book, I bet you want some gorgeous swag, too. Happily for all of us, several fantastic independent bookstores have joined forced to help promote the release! Want to see who’s participating, and what you’ll get? Read on … 


If you’re one of the first ten pre-orders or in-store buyers at any of the below bookstores, you’ll get ALL of the following:

1) a signed bookplate for your copy of the book

2) a signed poster of the cover

3) a sticker

4) a button with the cover image, which is EXCLUSIVE to this giveaway and the Compelling Reads tour — can’t get it anywhere else!

5) and a button with a fandom saying that I’ve embraced as my personal motto for the Firebird series: “Every Me Loves Every You.”

Do you live overseas, far beyond Canada? No worries! Books of Wonder will be handling international orders, and so they have the materials for plenty of extra pre-orders. Everyone gets their chance.

Probably most of you already know this, but pre-orders make a WORLD of difference for a book, a series and an author. A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU is not a book that’s getting a gargantuan publicity push; the buzz you’ve seen out there about the novel is totally grassroots, reader-driven enthusiasm, and I am so, so grateful for that. If you’re excited for it, please don’t wait around. Only you guys have the power to make this book a success.

Besides, are you going to tell me you don’t want posters/buttons/stickers with this image on them?



Some of the bookstores will be posting special links on their websites, etc., but get in touch with any of them, they’ll be able to hook you up — as long as supplies last. They might not last long! Remember what I said about the Philippines selling out already, after … was it one week? A week and a half? At any rate, you want to jump on this. You have three weeks before A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU comes out, but go ahead and order now to be sure you get the poster and all the other glorious swag!

      That’s it! Well, you have to be one of the first ten pre-orders or in-store sales. But you have acted quickly, so I expect you’re in luck …
