So as you may know if you follow me on Twitter or Tumblr or Instagram or have talked to me at any point recently, LOVE AND OTHER ALIEN EXPERIENCES comes out on July 11th, 2017. That means it is currently available for preorder! Several really wonderful people have let me know that they’ve already ordered it, and I’m just so overcome with gratitude that I wanted to take some time to say thanks. So! Here’s the deal. If you’ve preordered LOVE AND OTHER ALIEN EXPERIENCES (or if you order it at any time before July 11th), shoot me an email at email@example.com with your address and I’ll mail you a thank you note. And you will also be entered to win a little prize pack I put together, WHICH INCLUDES:
-A notebook that says “A little step may be the beginning of a great journey.” When I saw this, I was like, “THAT’S IT; THAT’S THE BOOK!” because one little step outside of her house is the start of some really big things for Mallory.
-The book Film Listography: Your Life in Movie Lists, because obviously Mallory’s brother Lincoln is keeping track of all the movies (sorry, films) he sees.
-A little stuffed Mulder and Scully set, because I also have these and they are very cute.
-Some alien/space themed socks
-Various X-Files stickers/patches
-A package of Twizzlers for PLOT REASONS that you have to read to find out, but honestly I trust that you can always use Twizzlers even if you haven’t read the book
-Some nail polish that I will choose for you at a later date, because Mallory’s BFF Jenni is a beauty vlogger but she would definitely want to know more about you before picking out a polish shade for you.
I’m not exactly going full Oprah and giving away new cars here, but I just wanted to send out thank you notes because I am really, really grateful. I know that I am just one little debut author, and I know that we all have limited money to spend on books. The fact that anyone is preordering my book is bananas, and the fact that I know some people have preordered AFTER ALREADY BUYING IT IN EBOOK WHEN IT WAS OUT IN 2015 is Gwen Stefani B-A-N-A-N-A-S. I am OVERWHELMED with gratitude and I appreciate everyone who has preordered this book so, so much. Please, let me send you a personal and probably weird (let’s be honest) thank you note.
TL;DR: Preorder LOVE AND OTHER ALIEN EXPERIENCES from your preferred retailer & email me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a thank you note and enter you to win a prize pack FULL OF GREAT STUFF! Proof of purchase is only necessary if you win, because I can’t imagine a person who would lie about buying my book to receive a thank you note from me. That would be the weirdest lie ever.
