BIG FAT HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY!

Hello! I've been meaning to do this for ages, and here at last: a reader appreciation giveaway! Because I loOoOoOoOoOoOove people who read books, especially my books :-), and I want to give you stuff. Hurray! There are some things here that are a) hard to find, and b) truly rare and [potentially] collectible. There are two each of two sets of shwag. 

Ready?


1.) DREAMDARK BOOKS!
2 sets of ...



  • 1 signed (by author and illustrator) hardcover of Blackbringer
  • 1 signed (by author and illustrator) hardcover of Silksinger 
  • 1 Laini's Ladies Christmas ornament

Now, Silksinger, you may know, is hard to find. It's out of print and costs upwards of $70 on Amazon for a used copy. So this is a good way to get it -- two chances! 

As for the ornament, it reads "Merry Christmas nearly everyone!" and is one of my favorite LL holiday ornaments, though it never sold well because apparently people didn't "get" it ... Really? Is it really just me with this little mean place in my heart, or are there just not a few people you truly hope do not have a merry Christmas? Maybe it is just me ...




2.) Daughter of Smoke & Bone super shwag pack!
2 sets of ...




  • 1 signed hardcover copy Daughter of Smoke and Bone, UK edition
  • 1 complete audiobook on CD, US edition
  • 1 signed (by illustrator) extremely limited edition graphic sampler, produced & dist. in the UK
  • 1 very cool 4-chapter sampler/party invitation (party has already happened, sorry!)
  • 2 sets of hamsa temporary tattoos
  • 1 vivid blue feather carnival mask to match US cover

Here's some photos of some of the stuff.

The UK hardcover. So pretty:




The back is gorgeous too ...




The graphic sampler (l) and the party invitation (r):




The graphic sampler was a convention giveaway in the UK, and is eight pages of graphic artwork by my talented husband/collaborator, Jim Di Bartolo, depicting a small section of the book (from Karou and Zuzana at Poison to Karou going through the portal). Here's what it looks like:






Gorgeous! And this really isn't something you're going to find anywhere else. I don't think.

As for the sampler/party invitation, this was the ingenious package sent out in advance of the pre-launch party at ALA in New Orleans this summer. It's just such a cool thing, made to look like Karou's sketchbook, with this awesome sticker on the cover, which you might recall from the book:




Love the coffee ring :-)



SO, HOW DO YOU ENTER?

Alas, I was trying to find a free contest widget so I wouldn't have to enter every name in a hat later, but I couldn't find anything, so we'll do this the old-fashioned way! Leave a comment to this post. That is all. I will announce winners here, at which time I will ask that you email me your address -- but wait until you win :-)

Deadline to enter: midnight PST, Saturday, December 10. I will pick the four winning names on Sunday; which prizes go to who will just be by order of choosing, with Dreamdarks first and Daughters second.

Ok. That's all. Comment away! Tell your friends. Smooooooooooooch!

Awesome giveaway! These are amazing prizes. I can't even decide which prize pack is better. Maybe the Daughter of Smoke and Bone one? Because I would love to get that graphic sampler.

I had no idea Silksinger is already out of print, it's still available in some bookstores here in the Philippines. Good thing I bought hardcovers of both Dreamdark books then.

Merry Christmas, Laini! Don't worry, you're included in my "nearly everyone" :P

Sarah (The Book Life) said...

This is so amazing! Daughter of Smoke and Bone is one of my favorite books of 2011 and that swag is gorgeous! I love that ornament, too! There are definitely a few people I wouldn't wish a Merry Christmas...the meanness comes from the horns hidden under my hair :0)

Lynda said...

What a generous giveaway. Thank you for thinking of us. I enjoyed the DreamDark series and Lips Touch but I think Daughter of Smoke and Bone is your best work yet! I love how you worked through all the sticky spots and made every facet of the story click into place so smoothly and BELIEVABLY. I especially love how you explained the purpose of the teeth and Karou's existence. So good!

Kristin said...

Nearly everyone has at least one mean place in her heart.

Zac said...

I love Daughter of Smoke & Bone so it would be awesome to win! Thanks Laini

Rachel Yarbrough said...

Oh wow, such lovely prizes.
I'm so enamored with the artwork, it's making me salivate. I really love the artwork in the graphic sampler, just ... divine.

Just, hoping that I win because now I am filled with a very deep and abiding need for these! Maybe Santa will bring me luck for Christmas - because it looks like I'm going to need it.

Jasprit said...

Thank you so much for the awesome giveaway Laini, Daughter of smoke and bone is a 2011 favourite of mine :)

Lilie said...

Wait, Silksinger is out of print?! I was planning to get a copy the next time I'm in the US, but now I simply have to win this giveaway! And I've *always* wanted a Laini's Lady of my own.
I do love Daughter of Smoke and Bone very, very much -- but Dreamdark will forever have a place in my heart.

Carmen B. said...

Oh my god *stares* This is seriously the most amazing giveaway I've ever seen o.O I can't even tell which prize pack is the better one. I'd absolutely love to win one of them but with my luck I kinda doubt it ^^'
Thank you :)

Liane said...

Oh please oh please!!!! (pleading to the fates here). Any of these would be the Best. Present. Ever. Thanks for the chance, Laini, and the wonderful, wonderful writing.

Anonymous said...

That's the most amazing giveaway I've every seen. Both giveaways sound great. Thanks for the opportunity to get so amazing items. Camille

Irene said...

Mine! Mine!Mine!
If you’ve seen Finding Nemo, you will know what it sounds like out loud.
If you haven’t: envision a choir of seagulls singing the word “mine” over and over again.
And Yes.
I am aware it sounds a bit greedy (and I’m afraid I am, but only concerning books..)
Have a nice day!

Thanks for the giveaway! :)

JenE said...

These all look amazing. I loved DoSB so very much.

Taneika said...

:O I am completely spasming over how amazing this giveaway is!! Yes, I have been looking for Silksinger EVERYWHERE so it would be amazing but the Daughter goodies would be amazing too! *so much* brilliant stuff!!

As for future giveaways, there is a thing called 'Rafflecopter' which I've seen on a few blogs :) so you could give that a go

dani said...

WANT!

Daughter of Smoke and Bone is definitely one of the best YA books I read in a long time. I wish I had your ability to put into words how wonderful it is.

Thanks for the giveaway

semimilor_jonas said...

Hi everyone! This is my first time to be look in this blog, and I'm really happy that I did and I get to participate in this contest.

mel said...

i'm still giggling over the Christmas ornament...I would have SO bought that if I'd come across it! LOL

brilliant giveaway...you are oodles of generous...

*crosses fingers*

Mandy said...

I would *love* to win! I picked up DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE a few months ago and dropped everything else to finish. I then gave it to one of my students to read; she couldn't put it down. She said her aunt asked her for book recommendations and she told her that she "MUST buy this book." I, too, am recommending it to anyone and everyone! Easily one of the best I've read in quite a while.

--jenna said...

Wow wow wow. Oh. Here's hoping for some cosmic goodwill and luck to come my way...
Merry Christmas!

jenn said...

OMG! What an utterly fantastic giveaway! Thanks a lot:)

I recommended Daughter of Smoke and Bone to a very picky co-worker and she loved it! She got mad of course when she realized she'll have to wait awhile for the sequel. Haha!

In the future you may want to consider using google docs or rafflecopter- they're both free and easy to use!

Ms Mazzola said...

I am a high school librarian and would love to win any of these packages for our library. I have been recommending your book to everyone!

Trudy said...

I've been following your blog for over a year now, and devoured every scrap of advice on your Not for Robots blog - but never plucked up the courage to post a comment. Shocking that it should be a giveaway that makes me take the plunge! I loved Daughter, I read it in one sitting. Then again, more slowly, to savour it. Would love to win, obviously, but also want to wish you three a wonderful Christmas.

Sophia Richardson said...

I would love to win either of these. You know I adored Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and I'd love to get the chance to read the Faeries of Dreamdark-- the snippets of information from your blog are just too enticing! Hopefully this is open internationally *fingers and toes crossed*

ATU said...

Wow! This is quite the giveaway! Thank you! My fingers will be crossed that I win! (Too many !!!)

Katyroo said...

I would SO love to win this! I promise to be very gentle reading the books before passing them on to my twin teen granddaughters who will DEVOUR them... well, maybe I'll just keep the ornament so they don't have to argue about it.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone has been so highly regarded among my writer friends, it went to the top of my Christmas Wish List.

Marci said...

Laini,

Where have you been all my life?

xox

Eti said...

Thank you for hosting this giveaway. I want to read all of your books on an endless loop FOREVER! Thank you so much!

Jenna DeTrapani said...

I should win because I am awesome.
Awesome = Winning
Ask Charlie Sheen :P

Or wait, better yet DON'T ask Charlie Sheen. Because I am a better person than he is and I *really* DON'T want to be compared to Charlie Sheen. He's an awful person (not awesome) and he really ISN'T "winning". Plus, wasn't Charlie Sheen SO "last season"?

Who's winning now? Hopefully they are awesome. Scotty McCreery won Idol last. Should have been Pia, but Scotty is still awesome (hey, he's young and can sing like a 30 year old, that's pretty awesome.) And Melanie and Josh are awesome on X-Factor (forgive me, for I am a singing competition addict) so they are most likely winning that one...

So my case that Awesome = Winning still stands. And I am awesome so maybe I should win, too...

Bottom line: I really want to win this giveaway and am willing to make a fool of myself on your blog in order to win it...

Pick me!

Wow! I'm a little late to this party but here goes. I love the Blackbringer series and hope, hope, hope you return to Magpie some day. DOSAB is one of my favorite reads of the year. (Serious character crush on Akiva). Fingers crossed.

Shannon said...

I think the ornament is beautiful and would loveeee to win.

Anonymous said...

Wow, what a contest! I quite enjoy reading your blog and epic giveaways only make it that much more exciting!
That Daughter package looks especially nice, but maybe I'm biased because I have a signed copy of Silksinger on my bookshelf. I can't believe it's out of print!

Carol said...

I absolutely love all of your work. You're writing inspires me.

"Daughter of Smoke and Bone" is by far my favorite read of 2011. I would love to be able to read the Dreamdark Series. Your husband's artwork is breathtaking. :)

I'm in LOVE with the graphic artwork. It's so beautiful!! I wish you could buy it. I'd get it in a heartbeat. But, I'll just enter this contest in hopes of winning. :-) I love the book by the way. I'm currently working on jewelry inspired by the book. :-) can't wait to read what happens next.

Entering! Entering entering entering the contest! (Especially for the Dreamdark pack. Also, you totally need to write more Dreamdark books. And Silksinger needs to not be OOP.

I don't think I'd need anything else for Christmas if I won any of these. But seriously, these are awesome. And yes, your husband is crazy talented. I love graphic novels, and the artwork is gorgeous.

Also, the captcha would make an excellent name for a character: Scoratt. I'll let you have it, if you want. ;)
