Upcoming Giveaway Extravaganza

Don't ask me how it happened, but somehow this imaginary month of April 2012 is actually here and The Mapmaker and the Ghost comes out in just a little over three weeks.

Oh. My.

To celebrate this miraculous fact, I'm going to be running a weekly giveaway every Tuesday up until release date. The prize will be a signed, finished, hardcover copy of The Mapmaker and the Ghost and the giveaways will be open internationally!

Author not included.

I'm going to be running each contest on a different social media outlet so, in case you want to mark your calendars, here is the schedule:

- Tuesday, April 3rd on Twitter from 4 PM EST to 8 PM EST
Rules: Simply RT my contest tweet that day or tweet with hashtag #mapmakerandtheghost to be entered. One entry per person.

- Tuesday, April 10th on Facebook from 8 AM EST to 11:59 PM EST
Rules: Just comment on my contest status that day. You can also get an extra entry by sharing the status on your wall. Up to two entries per person.

- Tuesday, April 17th on Pinterest from 8 AM EST to 11:59 PM EST
Rules: Repin my cover and/or my trailer to one of your boards. Make sure to leave a comment on my board with a way to contact you (email address or twitter handle) should you win. Up to two entries per person (one each for repinning the cover and the trailer).

- Tuesday, April 24th on this blog through Tuesday May 1st
RELEASE DATE!! This will be the Grand Poobah of giveaways featuring an adventure kit much like Goldenrod has in the book (with a real compass, graph paper, pencils and more) AND an extra-special annotated copy of The Mapmaker and the Ghost with hand-drawn chapter heading illustrations by Graig Kreindler. You'll get my exclusive, behind-the-book notes along with the gorgeous illustrations. It'll also be signed by both Graig and me. An absolutely one-of-a-kind edition.

Here's a sneak peek:

Rules: Check back on this blog for a Rafflecopter form to fill.
