Scripped Pre-Order. Also, Prizes.

27 Jul

Wednesday is ours! The Scripped pre-order is a real thing.

Interested? Check it out here at Belfire Press.

When you fill out the little order form, just pick “pre-order” for shipping. You will not be charged a thing until the actual book is printed and ready to go (mid-August, for the record)–and then Belfire will send you an invoice. Yay!

If you do pre-order (oh gosh, please do!), remember to take advantage of my two-for-one offer. Send me an email, let me know you’ve opted in on the pre-order, and you’ll immediately get the Tales from Liberty Tree chapbook e-version. Plus, I’ll put you down for one of those signed, numbered, pretty jobs I described this weekend, and when the pre-orders are all finalized and ready to go out, I’ll drop it in the mail for you.

(Did I mention my aunt did the cover painting? Yeah. She’s awesome.)

Not sure you’re interested, but… maybe interested?

So you checked out the website, but you’re still not sure. Sounds like a weird idea for a book, this whole Appalachian fae thing. Can she pull it off?

I’ll tell you what. I’ve got two chapbooks that have printing errors, #8 and #11. They’ve been fixed up, they’re still beautiful — hell, I had four initially, but two people actually elected to have the ones with the error in them because they thought it was cool.

If you leave a comment right here and simply say, “Look, I’m not sure I want to commit to a pre-order,” I’ll enter you in a drawing for #8, to take place on August 10. You can tell me why (“I read this story of yours and it was total crap.” “I’m thinking I’ll just grab the e-book.” “I’m sick of your long blog entries!” “I want to but I have no money!” “The voices won’t let me.”) or not. No strings, no nothing. Just give me a shot.

But Katey, I’m totally pre-ordering! What about me?!

I see your point. I mean, even if you’re not pre-ordering, just sure you want to wait for the e-book or some extra cash or whatever, you should still get to win stuff just for being cool.

How about this? Give me a signal boost — link this post from your blog, tumblr, twitter, facebook, G+, whatever. Spread the love around to your friends who might not be in the know about awesome Appalachian fae, and you’ll get a drawing for a prize, too. If I see it I’ll let you know, if I don’t see it please tell me in whatever way suits you best so I don’t miss you. Tweet, email, comment, whatever works. I’ll keep a thank you list.

The loot: I’ve got two copies of Dark Quest Book’s fabulous Jennifer Brozek anthology, Beauty Has Her Way, and someone needs to win ‘em, right?

    Not to fly at you from left field or anything, but when will Scripped be available for Kindle?

    • Katey July 28, 2011 at 12:26 pm #

      The date right now is Aug 15, which is also when the print ones will go out, barring any disaster with the proof!

    • Katey August 2, 2011 at 1:29 pm #

      Hope it suits — I’m so excited I can’t see straight… but for once it’s totally justified!

    Dude, pre-ordering is complete…I shall be peeking in the mailbox every day until it gets here…

      “Look, I’m not sure I want to commit to a pre-order,” Please enter me in a drawing for a free one! :)

      I am so excited about your book. I love the concept!!!
      I can’t commit to any more money for books right now. I just spent big bucks on books for the kids for the comming school year. (We home school.) My book needs are on the bottom of the list. :(

      Anyway, even if I don’t win. I’ll buy it eventually. It’s just too cool a concept! :)

      • Katey August 2, 2011 at 1:31 pm #

        Hello, Amanda! Thanks so much for stopping by. I completely understand — I have to give myself a Book Allotment in cash each month and then hope for the best.

        You are entered :D

    • Katey August 2, 2011 at 1:30 pm #

      Thank you thank you thank you, Alan!

    Well you already know I preordered. In fact, although I was away from the net for a wee while, I made sure to check in periodically to see if your book was available to pre order yet. I shall plug the book EVERYWHERE when I get back into the internet full time.

    • Katey August 3, 2011 at 12:03 pm #

      I was so surprised — I actually thought that email meant you were back already!

      Cate, you really are the best. Thank you <3
