Win the Eli Monpress Omnibus!

So, Orbit is launching The Legend of Eli Monpress Omnibus this month! Hooray! Isn't it pretty?


And it's got three books in it, so it's HUGE! Also, the finish is smoooooth, but the book isn't too heavy, and it smells nice. In short, a very pleasant thing to hold in your hands.


It seems kind of absurd this phonebook only costs $10.98 on Amazon ($9.99 for the ebook, that's like $3 per book!), but the dealz, they are realz! I couldn't be more excited. I think Orbit did such a great job on the packaging for this book. That's why I'm giving some away!

The Eli Monpress Omnibus Giveaway Raffle!

The Prizes!
To celebrate the release of my omnibus and get the word out, I'm giving away 7 personalized signed copies, one for each day until Tuesday, February 14! Also, at the end of the contest, I'll combine all the entries to pick one grand prize winner who will get a signed omnibus and a $50 Amazon.com gift card to spend on the book of your choice!

How to Enter
Happy as I am about the omibus release, binding the first three Eli books into one volume means I leave all my lovely reviews behind. The Spirit Thief has over 100 reviews on Goodreads, the omnibus has only 5, and that just sucks because they're the same books. But there's no way to link them...

SO! Here's the deal! If you rated or reviewed The Spirit Thief, The Spirit Rebellion, or The Spirit Eater, I'm asking you to please take a moment to copy it over to my new book on Goodreads and leave a note that you did so in the comments. Every transferred review is an entry to win!

Didn't write a review, don't feel like moving it, or haven't read the books yet? No worries! You can also enter simply by spreading the word of the omnibus's release! Post about Eli on FB, Twitter, your blog, or any other social platform of your choice and then drop me a note to let me know what you did and I'll enter you!

This is a raffle, so you can enter this contest multiple times. Every time you spread the word about the omnibus's release or move a review (or write a review, if you're so inclined, but only if you want to. You know how I feel about reviews. They are precious gifts! But if you want to write one, I would be delighted and it would totally count for the contest.), put it in the comments below with a link. Move a review, post on Twitter, and mention the book on your blog? That's 3 entries! Tell me so and I'll enter your name 3 times.

I'll be drawing from the comments on this post every day, including today, so the sooner you enter, the more chances you have to win! You can also keep promoting the book to increase your chances ever further! Winners will be announced the morning of the day after they win, so today's winner will be announced tomorrow morning, etc.

The grand prize drawing will be on Tuesday, February 14th at 12:00 PM, east coast US time (EST). After this, entries will be closed and I'll be mailing out a lot of books!

Boring Rules Stuff
This contest to open to everyone in the US, Canada, the UK, and Auz/NZ. Only one entry per moved review/social network (so no posting it a million times on Twitter for a million entries :P). New reviews and moved reviews count as 2 separate entries. Also, you can move reviews/post new reviews for the omnibus on other sites besides Goodreads. Readers who win one of the earlier signed copies are still eligible for the grand prize gift card, but since they already have a book coming to them, I'll pick a new winner to get the extra copy.

If you have any questions about the contest, the rules, or the books, please contact me! If you want to read a sample of the book you'll be winning, you can do that here.

Good Luck!
And please spread the word of the contest around. If I get a lot of people, I'll just give away more books to keep the chances even.

Thanks for reading!
- Rachel

The word has been spread on Ever On Word! If anyone who takes note is half as excited about a chance to get this book as I am, you'll get a cats-and-dogs downpour of entries. (:

Well here's my Goodread's review-

http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/274315443 and I posted it on Amazon as well.

Cara H said...

I don't know how to link my review like Dustin did but I added my review to Goodreads. Happy to do it! Anything that keeps you in the storytelling business!

Deshipley said...

Check, and check. Two more shout-outs for you, Rachel, courtesy of my personal and "Ballad of Allyn-a-Dale" Facebook accounts.

So I obviously want to win the contest BECAUSE I LOVE YOU, but I'm also genuinely excited to spread the Eli-love. I recommend them to all my reading friends, and I've yet to have one come back and tell me that they didn't like it. (I guess Eli charms more than spirits...)

Moved reviews for books 1 and 2 to the omnibus, adding a review for book 3, too (because I never wrote one, what??). linkage!

Posted on Facebook: link

...and Tumblr... link

...and Twitter. link

Also, if I disappear for a while, I'm hiding from all of my followers who no doubt want to maim me, now.

Looking forward to books 4 and 5!

I'm very happy to post a review on your Eli books. I stumbled across them at bookstore called Mysterious Galaxy in between work and my house in Los Angeles. I love these books. They're so much fun and very unique. Best of luck.

Rachel Aaron said...

You guys are the greatest!

I shared this on my facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/artbymeg it's the post currently at the top! I'm not sure how I can link to the individual post, but I hope that's ok! I'd love to read your books, so an omnibus version would be a great way to get into the first three :-)

I also posted it on twitter not that I have any real followers. I do the following. Didn't want to play the Potter card but the first book at least has that care free feel.
