What is a hardship giveaway? It's where I give away older books (not ARCs or just-released) to people who couldn't afford to buy them when they came out, and/or can't afford them now. It's an honor system: I believe that you will honor my intent, and only enter if you have a genuine need. Because T-shirt mailing is ongoing, this particular giveaway is only open to people with US addresses. I am so sorry about that, I really am, but a) I can't afford international postage (which is sort of contradictory to the whole "hardship" angle), and b) my postal workers will kill me if I add more international shipping right now.
1) Comment on this post, indicating that you have a US address.
2) Tell me what book you are hoping to win. Anything I've written that is not listed below.
2a) Hell, feel free to list anthologies.
3) If you have a second choice, list that.
4) If you list a book which I have explicitly stated I do not have, you will be disqualified.
I cannot guarantee that I have any specific book "in stock," as it were, but I am happy to look.
Books that I can tell you for sure I do not have:
Rosemary and Rue
A Fantasy Medley 2
Ravens in the Library
Glitter and Mayhem
Books that I can guarantee I have:
The Winter Long
The Mad Scientist's Guide
Rolling in the Deep (two copies)
Indistinguishable From Magic (Cat Valente's essay collection)
I will choose ten winners on Monday, April 27th. They will have twenty-four hours to contact me to claim their prizes. This will be tightly enforced, as I leave for Orlando at the end of the week.
Shoot for the moon!
