Gail Carriger Themed Goodie Box is Coming!

Posted by Gail Carriger

The Chirrup, is soon to go out, Gentle Reader!

This time I’m giving away a Blameless themed goodie box to members, full of lovely things, which one lucky Chirrup member will win. There is also a stack of books to the runner up.

Why Blameless? Because Romancing the Werewolf is coming and there’s some setup for that book in Blameless.

Here’s what’s in the goodie box…

  • book on teacups
  • the out of print mass market first edition of Blameless, signed
  • Red scarf & matched feather change purse,
  • assorted bookmarks & other swag
  • tea sample
  • mock victorian earrings
  • ladybug pin & octopus necklace

  

 

The stack of books includes…

You know what you need to do…

Meanwhile, my tea is getting cold… scandal!

Giveaway Goodie Box

Posted by Gail Carriger

First up, Gentle Reader, I have a Facebook Live next Tuesday, March 14, at 4:30pm PST on my Author Page for no good reason, just to say hi. Feel free to come by and hang out of ask questions. If you can’t make it, I’ll post it to my YouTube channel, Amazon Author Central, and Goodreads videos within a few days.

An now…

A Madame Lefoux Goodie Box!

Recently, Gentle Reader, I ran this poll on Twitter:

Why did I do it on Twitter? Instant gratification. And anyone can participate. (Facebook only lets admins see the first 100 answers, then requires us to pay to see the results. Because… Facebook.)

Anyhoo, the people have spoken!

So March’s Chirrup giveaway is, indeed a Goodie box. In honor of the Romancing the Inventor Audiobook release, this box is Madame Lefoux themed.

Here’s a peek inside…

Contents:

How to enter:

You must be subscribed to my monthly newsletter, the Chirrup, before Saturday for this particular prize. If you are already subscribed then you can enter via the Chirrup, after you receive it. In the newsletter, there will be a link to a form and a code word to enter.  If you want to sign up for the Chirrup you can do so here.

Why sign up?

This is how I run most of my giveaways these days.

Newsletters come once a month with insight into my books and further plans (before being announced anywhere else). Occasionally there is a special Chirrup when I have a release. In case you wondered, I also pick my mods, beta readers, and early reviewers exclusively off of the newsletter. So it really is a good idea to get it and read it, if what you want from me is more books, sooner, and if you want influence over what I write next this is it.

This particular give away is open to everyone, everywhere, so long as you subscribe to the Chirrup before it goes out Saturday. Winner will be random number generated from entries.

Good luck!

Soulless LTD Edition Is Sold Out, Will There Be More?

Posted by Gail Carriger

 

Well, Gentle Reader, you were warned. When we do a limited run, it is LIMITED. The beautiful hardcover fancy edition of Soulless is now officially sold out. Thanks to everyone who purchased one!

Soulless LTD Edition

Will there be more in the series?

I’d be open to it, but my publisher, Orbit, has the rights to hardcover releases. They might not be willing to license an edition of Changeless. Also, I don’t know how well Soulless LTD sold for Subterranean, so they might not want to do the next in the series. It’s a balancing act.

Sign up for the Chirrup newsletter and I will tell you the moment I know more. Also, I myself managed to hoard quite a few of these beauties and if I decide to give them away, I’ll be doing it over Chirrup. So yeah, if you want one, that’s likely one of the few ways you can now get one.

10 Things Every Writer Should Know About Amazon Publishing

DualReads says:

“I had been eagerly anticipating Imprudence ever since I finished Prudence one year ago so I was incredibly excited to receive this from the publishers for review. And it did not let me down. Everything I had expected – the wonderful characters, engaging plot and great relationships were all present.”

It’s Give Away Time! Court of Fives, Waistcoats & Weaponry, Beka Cooper

Posted by Gail Carriger

 

 

Giveaway time!

It’s a YA special here in the wild lands of the authorbeast. I have two copies of Court of Fives, September’s book group pick to give away!

I’ll be picking two winners. Each winner will also get a signed hardcover copy of Waistcoats & Weaponry, and one will get (my personal) trade paperback editions of the Legend of Beka Cooper trilogy by Tamora Pierce.

 

All you have to do is post a picture (of yourself, or your pet, or a pretty garden, or a foreign location or whatever silliness you like) featuring one of my books or one of Kate’s books. Please post in a venue that can be linked publicly.

Giveaway open to all and can be entered using this Google form. You’ll be asked for the photo link when you enter. One photo entry per person, please. (Chirrup subscribers, you know what you can do.)

Address and email are required, but will be kept entirely private. If you don’t want to input such information, then this giveaway is not for you. Under 18, please obtain permission from your parents first, or have them do it. Sorry. It’s just when I go with email only, inevitably I get bounces and mistypes and it’s easier simply to request the address up front.

Giveaway closes September 13th midnight Pacific Time.

Book News:
Onirik says of Jupons & Poisons: “Impossible de résumer l’intrigue sans trop en dévoiler, mais l’essentiel ici n’est pas tant l’intrigue justement, mais plutôt l’étonnant monde steampunk dans lequel évoluent les personnages, c’était un univers déjà bien maîtrisé dans Le Protectorat de l’Ombrelle (et sans doute était-il plus original d’ailleurs). On retrouve également le ton iconoclaste et plein d’humour so british de l’auteur, parfaitement rendu par la traduction.”
