Pre-ordering books gives the author such a huge boost. It’s the biggest favor you can do for a writer you like. I would love it if you pre-order my second novel ANYONE, which you can do very easily here, in any format you choose, from any retailer (Amazon to your local indie bookstore.) If you do, I want to thank you with some very cool items I’ll mail out to you, as well as entering you in a big giveaway to win a trip to New York City and an opportunity to Be Me for a few days. Here’s how it works:
Pre-order ANYONE by 11:59 PM, December 2, 2019. In other words, any time between now and when the book comes out on December 3.
Email me proof of pre-order (a confirmation page from a website, a confirmation email, etc.) to email@example.com
Include your full name and the address to which you want your bonuses sent.
That’s it! Do that, and we’ll send a confirmation email back to you, and you’ll get your bonuses as well as being entered into the Be Me giveaway… which I’ll tell you about in a second. But first, the bonuses that everyone gets:
A very cool, personalized letter from NeOnet Global, the corporation that runs the body-swap tech in the book, called the “flash.” It’ll be an in-story artifact that will bring you (yes, you) into the world of the book, letting you participate in the very first tests of the technology.
The fabulous enamel pin derived from the book’s cover (you can see it on this page), which will also connect with the NeOnet Global letter in a fun way.
And as if that wasn’t enough, here’s the best part: the Be Me giveaway! I will give one lucky pre-orderer, plus a guest, a chance to be ME for a day. Yes, you can be Brooklyn-based writer, musician, attorney Charles Soule for a day. Or a few days, even. BUT HOW? Well…
I’ll take everyone who sends me proof of their pre-order (forwarded email, screenshot, etc.) and randomly choose one on release day, December 3, 2019. (Entry can also happen without a pre-order or purchase, as outlined below.) The lucky winner and a guest will be flown to NYC and put up in a hotel for two nights. I’ll provide you with a list of the stuff I typically do - my favorite places to write, to eat, to drink. The shops I like, the places I get my coffee, my museums, movie theaters, even the best routes I take when I go for runs. You can do some of that or none of it, but if you want to be me, you’ll have a map.
I’ll join you for one of those activities, too, and cover the cost - whether that’s drinks, dinner, a run, a movie... whatever you want. Sounds fun, right? Right.
The giveaway is only open to legal US residents 18 years of age or older, and there are other important rules you should read below. If you have questions, feel free to tweet them at me, or email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form here.
