The Spirit War Give Away!

THE TIME LONG FORETOLD IS UPON US... The Spirit War is finally here!


And it looks so nice next to the omnibus!



Isn't it lovely? Don't you want one?! Well, you're in luck, because Orbit sent me a big old box of these lovelies to give away to you fabulous people!


A pile of Elis! 

Now, since the last give away contest I did for the omnibus was such a huge success, we're going to do it again! I am happy to announce the...

Official Spirit War Pre-Release Raffle!


The Prizes!
You've waited patiently for so long. Now, you can win the book before it hits shelves! I'm giving away 7 personalized signed copies of THE SPIRIT WAR (or the Eli Monpress Omnibus if for some crazy reason you haven't read that yet, your choice!), one for each day until Thursday, May 17! Also, at the end of the contest, I'll combine all the entries to pick one grand prize winner who will get signed copies of both THE LEGEND OF ELI MONPRESS Omnibus and THE SPIRIT WAR, plus a $50 Amazon.com gift card to spend on the books of your choice!

How to Enter
Unlike my last contest, there's no reviews to move this time, so that means the rules are even simpler. All you have to do is spread the word that THE SPIRIT WAR is coming out on June 5! Post about Eli on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, your blog, or any other social platform of your choice and then drop me a note in the comments below letting me know what you did and I'll enter you into the pot.

This is a raffle, that means you can enter multiple times. Every time you spread the word somewhere on the internet (or even in real life! I'll totally count putting up a flyer if you roll old school!) put it in the comments below with a link. Pin the cover, 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 every day 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  Thursday, May 17th 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, and the UK. Only one entry per social network per day (so no posting it a million times on Twitter for a million entries :P). Readers who win one of the earlier signed copies are still eligible for the grand prize at the end, 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.

ETA: Following me on Facebook, Twitter, Tumlr, and Pinterest also count as entries if you're not doing that already. Bonus! Just let me know below.

Will have to get more clever with the other entries since I have none of these other accounts.

Teehee! Got a convert from my earlier posting pf the links on facebook! :-D

"OK, just that first bit in the sampler, about the door, makes me want to read these books. Thanks :)"

Thanks! Can't wait to read it.

deshipley said...

Two separate Facebook account shares and a blog post!
Part of me hopes I don't win so I'll be forced to spend money on you (I've yet to have the honor); the rest is like, "Heck and who cares. Eli by hook or by crook!"
I'm gettin' my "Spirit War" either way, so best of luck, everyone!

I hope I'm posting this entry correctly to be entered. ... I'm not on Twitter, so I'll have to see where/how else I can think of to post the news.

Jenni said...

I followed you on tumblr (moonlullaby) and reblogged the deadskunk quote because it is a thing of beauty.

I'm not entirely sure this counts but I've got the Spirit War entry for our library district's SFF newsletter ready and raring to go, I'm just waiting on our suppliers getting their acts together so I can order it.

Rachel Aaron said...

@Jenni that totally counts! Any way of helping to get the word out!!

And we're picking the next winner now!
