PRE-ORDER THE MADNESS UNDERNEATH, GET A SIGNED BOOKPLATE AND A GIFT
THE MADNESS UNDERNEATH PRE-ORDER CAMPAIGN IS ON, and HERE is where you can find out everything you need to know about it.
The book comes out on February 26th in the United States and Canada. If you pre-order the book from ANY ONE of the following list of independent bookstores across the United States (and one in Canada), that book will come with a SIGNED bookplate and a SPECIAL, EXCLUSIVE GIFT. I came up with SEVEN DESIGNS (with the help of Leakycon artist Jordan Edwards, graphic artist Erin Lazak, and manga artist Cassandra Jean). You get ALL SEVEN of these high-quality vinyl stickers with EVERY BOOK.
Want to read the first two chapters RIGHT NOW? You can do so HERE.
You have up until the day of release, February 26th, to take advantage of this offer! (After that, the stores can give away the gift until their supplies run out. But if you pre-order, you DEFINITELY GET THE SIGNED BOOKPLATE AND THE GIFT.)
Here are the seven stickers.
#1 I READ, designed by Jordan Edwards
This simple, declarative sticker will tell people what you get up to with your time. Be proud. Tell them you read.
#2 STARE, designed by Jordan Edwards
This sticker was somewhat inevitable. But it’s a good one to have. If you stick it on your computer, it will watch other people in the room as you work, ensuring your privacy and giving you a sense of tremendous well-being.
#3 WEXFORD OFFICIAL LOGO, designed by Jordan Edwards
Make the world think you go to Wexford. Also, there are clues in this sticker.
4. RORY IN FRONT OF WEXFORD by Cassandra Jean
A nice bit of manga to adorn anything you like.
5. FEAR! designed by Jordan Edwards
A little inspirational quote to keep with you in case you are being chased by murderous ghosts.
6. ON WRITING, designed by Erin Lazak
And my favorite one … the one that really makes this worth it …
7. I SHIP, designed by Jordan Edwards
You need this sticker. Everyone needs this sticker.
The actual sticker is bumper-sticker-sized (this has been scaled down to fit the screen–click to see in greater detail) and is a gorgeous, vivid pink-purple that can be seen from space. Put it across the back of a laptop, on a fridge, on a car … anywhere you need to tell the world that YOU SHIP IT.
So you get ALL of those, plus the signed book. And you support an independent bookstore. And you get the book fast. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Q: How do I pre-order?
A: Click on whatever store you are interested in! Either order on-line or in store! (If you have any problems, there is website and Twitter info there, and you can talk to the store directly!)
Q: So all I have to do is pre-order with one of these stores and I get a signed book and the gifts? That’s it?
Q: I don’t live near one of these stores! What can I do!
A: THEY SHIP! (That kind of ship.) (Kind of.)
Q: I live outside of North America! How can I pre-order and get the gifts?
A: You can order with any of these stores, whichever one works best for you!
Q: I am in the UK! I want this! Why don’t you do this there? And when does the book come out in the UK?
A: The book comes out in the UK on March 28th. As for the pre-order gifts, I did attempt to set this up in the UK, but the logistics of doing so were difficult. I am still trying, but at this time, it’s North America only.
Q: How many can I order?
A: As many as you want! Every book is signed, and every book gets all the gifts.
