25 Copies of Cherie Priest’s DREADNOUGHT to Give Away — Hurry!

UPDATE 10:05am — Giveaway is over! Thanks, everyone!
Yes, the title of the entry says it all. Or does it? Actually it doesn’t, because Subterranean Press’ Bill Schafer is here to tell you more — namely, how to get one of those fabulous new Cherie Priest novels, and how to pick up a brand new electronic version of another awesome tale in the Boneshaker universe — cheap! Take it away, Bill:
We have 25 copies of Cherie Priest’s new steamtastic — and yes, this is my attempt to coin a new word — novel, DREADNOUGHT, set in the same universe as her breakout novel, BONESHAKER. Take a cross country trip with an indomitable Civil War nurse and check out the scenery through the windows as you pass by, including steampunk war machines and hordes of zombies. Onboard, you’ll have to settle for high intrigue and even higher tensions, and don’t ask what’s being heavily guarded in the train’s rear car.
To snag one of the copies we have to give away:
1) Be a US resident.
2) Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with DREADNOUGHT GIVEAWAY as your Subject line.
3) The meat of your email should include ONLY your name and address.
We regret that we can’t send out emails to those who’ve won, or not, so the only indication you’ll receive is if a copy shows up in your mailbox in the next few weeks. The usual catch is included: By accepting DREADNOUGHT, you agree to read it within two weeks of receipt and post a reader review to Amazon.com — good, bad, or somewhere in between, it matters not to us.
In other Cherie Priest news, we’ve released the eBook version of her BONESHAKER-related short novel Clementine at the smashingly low price of only $2.99. This one includes dirigible dogfights, heavy armament, race relations, as well as a too-well-known former spy now working for the Pinkerton agency. (At the moment, it’s only available at Amazon. Other venues — and formats — are currently being uploaded.)
You’ve got everything you need to know. Enter — and good luck!
“1) Be a US resident.”
E-mail sent, fingers crossed.
Thanks for bringing us readers this opportunity, sir.
Awesome! Thanks John!
Oh man… the weeks of waiting is TOTALLY the hardest part. Can I somehow manage to forget I entered? *laughs*
Done and Done :D

“1) Be a US resident.”
Over at 10:05? I entered at 10:05… blasted overcomplex and uncertain universe!
Ah well, I’ll likely forget I entered and buy it anyways. Boneshaker was a fantastic and fun read.
I recommend buying it just to be sure, and then, if you win, giving the extra copy to a friend. Who will then give you a kidney in a time of need. Seriously, it’ll work just like that.
In my experience, people are great about promising kidneys for books, but when it comes time to collect, they try to get away with offering you an appendix or a vestigial tail.
Lame-sauce for just missing it, but I was going to purchase this book with real money anyway. :)
Dude! Thanks so much to both of you – I really do very much appreciate it, and I hope the winners enjoy the reading.
Damn. Five minutes?
Holy crap …
Very much looking forward to reading this book. Cherie Priest is brilliant.
Personally, I’m holding out for a lung, or at least part of a liver. Especially if I have to buy a loaner copy myself. That’s an investment.
However, I’ll settle for a kidney if I win a give away copy. I’m not unreasonable.
Oh well — my copy shipped from Amazon on Monday and should be here tomorrow…
Too late to try to get the free book, by about 3 hours, :) but ordered Clementine from Amazon. Thanks for the tip.
Well, I clearly missed this by miles, but that’s okay as I’d preordered a copy a million years ago. It came 2 days ago, but I haven’t had time to read it yet, to my dismay. This weekend, I hope!
I should pick up that Clementine e-book, too.
e-mail sent.I hope DREADNOUGHT is in my mailbox.
Boy, I wish these weren’t always given away during work days. I never seem to see these until the evening, when everything is gone. Darn.
Boneshaker was one of my favorite reads in the last year. Thank you for introducing me to Cherie Priest’s work!
I’ve already bought Clementine, and looking forward to Dreadnought as well. Steampunky greatness!
YAY I won it! it arrived today! willing to lend when I finish if you haven’t read it and are in the DC area!
Squee! Mine showed up today. I never win anything!
