Hello friends! I am slowly getting my feet back under me after a crazy, turbulent, amazing month. I’ll update and post photos soon. Meantime, I’ve been getting a lot of requests that I post the how-to guide for how to get the Cloudbound bookplate.
That is a thing I can do!
The bookplate for Cloudbound is so cool. Drawn by Raq, who also drew the Cooking the Books logo. Yes, it’s a map, but it’s much more than that.
Secrets will be revealed as the summer progresses!
Here’s a photo so you can see just how gorgeous it is.
So I'm sharing a sneak Peek at CLOUDBOUND pre-order bookplates, because they arrived last night and they're so cool I can't keep them under my hat. I'll post a longer post next week, but if you can't wait, send proof-of-preorder to CLOUDBOUND.email@example.com with your mailing addy and info, and we'll get them out to you in time for the book's arrival! #preorder #cloudbound Check these gorgeous #bookplates, designed by the awesomely talented Raq Winchester.
Here’s how to get one (or more) of your very own, signed by me, mailed to you by… again, me!
- Preorder Cloudbound (coming out Sept. 27 from Tor! So excited.) *
- Send to firstname.lastname@example.org an email containing:
- a pic of your receipt (with credit card info x-ed out, I don’t want to know)
- your mailing address
- who you want the bookplate made out to (to: name? or just a signature)
That’s it! Two steps. We have a bunch of requests already, which is so great! I’ll start signing and mailing them in August.
*Wondering where to preorder from? Wherever is best for you: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s, my west coast bookstore friends Mysterious Galaxy, your local indie, anywhere. (If you can’t pre-order, be sure to let your library know you want a copy on reserve.)
If you want the special fancypants treatment, I’ve partnered with one of my local indies – Main Point Bookstore – to offer both the bookplate and the usual Bone Universe silver inscriptions — on this and all my books. They’ll bring me the books, have me sign them, and they’ll send them to you! Give them a call – Anmiryam, Cathy & co. are wonderful.
So, there’s the how and the to! Get your bookplate orders in early so I can start unlocking more secrets about these particular plates!
