I keep meaning to post about things that have happened … but then more things happen and I forget to do it. But never mind my dilatory blogging. Look, it’s a
~*~*~*~SORCERER TO THE CROWN PAPERBACK PREORDER GIVEAWAY!~*~*~*~
Sorcerer to the Crown
is out in paperback on 12 July in the US
and 28 July in the UK
. (In other countries you should get the respective editions more or less on the same dates, but check with your friendly local bookshop to be sure.) If you preorder and let me know, you’ll get a chance to win these amazing earrings:
Tiny awesome book earrings by Coryographies! They retail for £15!
Aren’t they cute? I love my Coryographies Regency bookshelf necklace, which I ordered when Sorcerer first came out in hardcover:
Look at the tiny quill! The tiny letters! The tiny perfume bottle!
It’s pretty sturdy, but you can tell you shouldn’t be banging it about. And I sort of do, because I take it along whenever I travel for cons or book events and also I’m a terminal fidgeter. Finally the letters on the top shelf fell off in protest1 and I sent the pendant back to Coryographies for repairs — and she sent me the earrings as a gift when she returned it!
Tragically, I can’t wear earrings. But perhaps you can, or know someone who can and would love these! If you tick either of those boxes, plus you love Regency hijinks in conveniently portable paperback form, this is the perfect giveaway for you.
Here’s the deal:
- You preorder the Sorcerer to the Crown paperback and email me, providing valid proof of purchase, your name and address. (Make sure you email me at the address at the link!)
- I put your name in a hat.
- I choose someone at random out of that hat and they win the earrings! It might be you. And then you will look like this!
Except you will not have to hold the earrings up to your ear because hopefully you will have pierced ears that will hold up the earrings themselves.
If that sounds good to you, here are sites where you can place your preorder. Once you’ve done that, contact me with proof of purchase, plus your name and address. Don’t forget to take a look at the Terms and Conditions at the end of this post!

1 Just to be clear, if you’re reasonably careful with your possessions you should have no problems. I am pretty rough and even then the letters were only coming away a bit — I pulled them off the rest of the way because I didn’t want them to get detached while I wasn’t looking and be lost forever.
