My Giant Pre-Order Thank You

UPDATE: This contest is closed. About half the swag packs were mailed earlier in the week, the other half are being mailed today. Random.org has calculated a winner for the Mega prize and that is...

EMILY D.

Emily - your swag pack already went out. The mega prize will come separately. Congrats!

Why is this called a “thank you”? Why not a contest or a giveaway?

Because everyone wins.

Pre-order Clarity from your favorite bookseller and I will send you a Kim Thanks You For Being Awesome Swag Pack (I should trademark that title). This includes: a signed bookplate for you to stick in the book, a signed bookmark, and a Clarity sticker!

But, since contests are fun, one entry will be chosen at random to win The Mega Thank You (wow, an even better title). This includes: a signed, super special* Clarity hardcover, a signed bookmark, a Clarity sticker, Cape Cod touristy gifts, a $10 iTunes Gift Card to go with the Clarity playlist, and…a handwritten note containing the first line of sequel.


*I realize it’s kind of weird to give a copy of Clarity as a prize to someone who…bought Clarity, but this one is special. I will sign it and mark it up throughout so it will truly be one of a kind. I’ll underline my favorite passages. Circle the passage I wish I could edit out but it’s too late. Include little secrets in the margins like where certain names came from and what real places inspired my fictional settings. There will be lots of cool notes! And then you can give the copy you pre-ordered to a friend and she’ll think you’re awesome. So there’s that.

How to enter:

It’s easy. Just pre-order Clarity from your favorite bookseller – Indiebound, Amazon, B&N, Borders, The Book Depository, etc. -- and email the e-receipt to me at [redacted]. I will then mail you your swag pack and enter you for the Mega Thank You. (This is the only way to enter/receive a swag pack. I can’t go by the honor system on this one. I need the receipt.)

International peeps can enter to win the Mega Thank You, but the “everyone wins” swag packs are for U.S. only, sorry. The postage is going to kill me enough as it is. ;)

Contest ends 2/11/11. Note: I may have to close the contest earlier if I run out of swag!

Thank you! And please pass this on!
