My pre-order special posts have been pretty popular and I plan to make another one soon. Today I thought I would share some pictures of some of the items I’ve received. It’s one thing to read about what you receive, but seeing it might convince some of you to give it a try. I know that pre-orders help authors and I appreciate these specials that so many of them have.
Getting a personalized thank you from the author really makes my day. This is the special from Rebecca Ross (she also had a big giveaway, but I didn’t win).
I was honestly surprised by how many tarot/character cards were included with The Hazel Wood.
Character cards have quickly become a favorite of mine. I love seeing the characters before I read the book, too. It really helps me picture them while I’m reading and I feel like I connect to them more.
Brenda Drake went all out on her special. Look at those amazing character cards. And that signed postcard is actually a magnet.
I loved this pin from Holly Black.
This isn’t all pre-order stuff, but the bookmarks, stickers, tattoos, and bookplate (not pictured) were all a part of the special.
Are you a fan of the specials that authors/publishers have for pre-ordering their books? What specials have you received recently? I know I have some more that I’m still waiting on for March, too.
