This is the most excited I’ve been about a blog post in ages. Why? Because this one is all about you, dear reader. And it’s about getting you some FREE SWAG.
Okay, not swag. That’s underselling it. Swag would be like a t-shirt or a tote bag or a ballpoint pen that leaks and ruins a nice shirt. How about instead we give away these puppies!
What you are looking here is the Ultimate WOOL Boxset! Inside the custom wrap, you’ll find the original trilogy (with a new essay in each), plus a collection of the three post-WOOL stories that originally appeared in the Apocalypse Triptych. This little chapbook won’t exist anywhere else; you can only get it with this boxset.
The entire package is drool-worthy. I’m looking at mine on my bookshelf right now, and never has a trilogy looked so amazing on display. The stairs connecting across the spine and the figures on those stairs tell a story all on their own. The entire scene wraps around the box with little surprises to discover. We worked for months to pull this together, and when I saw them for the first time… well, I got quite emotional. Here’s the video if you missed it live.
Okay, Hugh, fine, great video and all, but what about the free stuff you mentioned?! Well, my publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt sent me more copies than I needed, so I told them I was going to give away the extras (after my sister and mom got their copies), and they said please don’t give away those five boxsets. Give TEN of them away instead!
TEN BOXSETS!!! Deep breath. I have the best publisher in the entire world. I mean, if only ten of you enter, you’ll all get one! That’s math!
Here’s what you need to do to enter:
– Leave a comment below. You can say how much you love this series, or if you’ve never read it before. You can say you just like free stuff, or that you’re looking for a new doorstop. Maybe you need a dirty Santa gift or you’re scared we might run out of toilet paper nationwide again. Whatever. Leave a comment. This step is MANDATORY
– If you’ve already read this series, go write a quick review of it on Amazon! Maybe you’ve already reviewed these books elsewhere, so most of your work is already done. Book reviews don’t have to be long, they just have to be honest and heartfelt. Write a sentence. Even if you hated it. This step is OPTIONAL
– If you like turning other readers onto great books, share the link to the boxset with friends and family on your social media pages! If they go out and buy a copy, they won’t steal yours! Theft protection! Genius! This is also OPTIONAL
Really, as long as you don’t believe in karma and you aren’t superstitious at all, you just need to comment below to enter. Sharing the amazing news about this singular work of fiction in this gorgeous new packaging is entirely up to you. Writing a review is entirely up to you. I won’t judge.
After a few days, I’ll use a random number generator to select the winners (the comments are numbered on my end, so it’s super easy). Make sure you use a real email address when you comment. Important: don’t put your email address in the comment itself, just in the form where it asks for your name and email address when you create the comment. Don’t worry, I can see it on my end and no one else can. I will never use this email to spam you or contact you for any other reason. I’ll simply email the winners to get your shipping addresses and you’ll have these beauties lickity-split.
For those of you who can’t wait, buy your copy now while they last! These things could actually sell out, and then I’ll have to strong-arm HMH into making more. Here’s a link at Amazon. If you can get the boxset through your local bookshop, please give them a try first. They can use all our help right now.
The price on these is amazing, pretty much what you’d pay for the books individually. In fact, even if you enter this giveaway you probably want to go buy a copy now to hedge your bets. If you win, your Christmas shopping is done! These are made to be read, not just collected, so they make great gifts for anyone who hasn’t blazed through the series already. Hook up your hipster friends before the TV show comes out!
That’s it. Comment away! Write a review! Share with your friends! Karma is totally real! (I think)
