Boneshaker Book Giveaway
Posted on September 28, 2009 Posted by John Scalzi 18 Comments
UPDATE, 1:36pm: All the copies are claimed. But you should still get a copy for yourself in the old-fashioned “go out and buy one” manner, because it’s excellent.
Hey, kids! My pal and Subterranean Press publisher Bill Schafer is having a giveaway of Boneshaker, the absolutely spectacular new novel by Cherie Priest, which officially hits stores tomorrow. Bill’s got 25 copies, and one of them could be yours. Here’s what he has to say about that:
Folks who want a copy (US residents only, sorry) should drop me an email (email@example.com) with the subject line “BONESHAKER.” In order to be eligible for a copy, they must be willing to read the book in the next two weeks and post a review to Amazon.
Note: when we run promotions like these, we receive far more emails than we can respond to, so please don’t query to see if you’ve won a copy. You’ll just have to wait and see if a happy extra package shows up in your mailbox in the next few weeks.
Don’t delay people! Do it now! NOW!
And also, for those of you who want to know more about the book, check out Cherie’s steampunklicious site The Clockwork Century. We also have Cherie scheduled for a Boneshaker Big Idea in a couple of weeks, so you have that to look forward to as well. Life is good.
Woohoo! Entry sent! I won the “first 110 people get an ARC of Little Brother” contest a while back (Thank you, PNH!) so maybe I’ll get lucky again.
Just sent my entry form. Of course, your posting this will ensure they get more response than they expected!
Woohoo! Thanks a zillion, dude — Bill warned me you were going to do this, but my internet has been spotty today.
So consider this a thousand smoochies upon your cheek!
Looks like I missed out on this one. :) That’s okay, I picked it up at Amazon anyways.
Just emailed :D. I loves me some free books!
Dang. Missed it because I had to do something useful, like look for a job.
Aw dammit, I completely missed this because I only just saw the post come through on Google Reader, but when I clicked through it’d been updated. Sniff.
Oh well, I was going to buy and read this thing anyway. ;)
According to Amazon, Boneshaker is being published by Tor. Is Amazon simply wrong, is Subterranean an imprint of Tor, or did the secret masters’ mask slip yet again?
SubPress and Tor are unaffiliated. Bill is doing this (I assume, I haven’t asked) because he’s a friend of Cherie’s and wants to help get the word out on the book.
Darn! Missed it, but that’s okay, because I fully intend to put good money towards this book either way and those not in the know of the goodness that is Cherie Priest should be getting these books.
I sent my email at 1:08 pm, so maybe I’ll get lucky… :) I’ll be watching my mailbox to add to my Cherie Priest Collection! :)
Aw, missed it by a lot. But I’ll be buying a copy anyway, because Cherie Priest is made of writerly goodness. I’m looking forward to that Big Idea!
They had me at ‘zombie’.
Set in Seattle, too. Sweet!
Just bought this at Amazon.
Shoot. Of all the days to be laid up in bed with some silly illness. Curse you, whatever is afflicting my stomach!!
You should 100% certain buy this book. In fact, you should buy the rest of her books too.
Cherie’s work is chock full of awesome. She crosses fantasy and horror sensibilities, but keeps a sense of the heroic about her main characters.
I sent an early e-mail but I hold little hope of winning since I live in Israel
She had me at the Westerfeld cover quote.
Cherie’s gonna be a Big Idea?! Way cool!! I should get my delivery slip of my preorder Any Day Now. I’m so excited!
