My new novel Clementine and Danny Save the World (and Each Other) launches July 18, 2023, and I’m thrilled at the early reception. Clementine and Danny has been named a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection designation. Reviews have also been rolling in, and I love this recent one from bookseller Kristy Creager.
“It’s official: You’ve Got Mail is the poor man’s Clementine and Danny Save the World (and Each Other). While opposing ideals clash in anonymity on the internet, Clementine and Danny find common ground and cohesion in real life. I am charmed by the leads, exhilarated by their truth, and quite possibly floored by the scope of Livia Blackburne’s delivery.” —Kristy Creager, Mitzi’s Books
If this sounds like your cup of tea, I hope you’ll consider preordering Clementine and Danny. Why preorder? Because publishers monitor these numbers carefully, and a strong preorder performance often translates into more marketing and effort behind the book.
For a little added incentive, I’ve put together some swag packets for people who preorder. There are several ways you can get swag.
Offer 1 (Open Internationally): Anyone who submits proof of preorder (from any store) will receive…
1. A signed Clementine and Danny bookmark
2. A signed Clementine and Danny bookplate
Email proof of preorder to firstname.lastname@example.org before July 18, 2023. Please include your mailing address in the body of your email, formatted so that it can be copied straight onto a mailing label. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to personalize bookplates for offer 1. This offer is open internationally.
Offer 2 (US Only): Anyone who preorders from Once Upon a Time, my local indie bookstore, will receive…
1. Everything included in offer 1
2. A signed, personalized first edition of Clementine and Danny Save the World (and Each Other)
You can place your Once Upon a Time Order here. Because of shipping limitations, this offer is US Only.
Offer 3 (International): Library Requests
Preordering the book helps me out the most as an author, but I understand that not everyone can afford a new hardcover. Because of this, I’m also offering preorder swag for people who request Clementine and Danny from their local library. Just forward your request confirmation to email@example.com along with your mailing address. This is open internationally, but I may have to suspend international mailings if I run out of international stamps.
