Well, I finally received my shipment of Fairly Twisted Tales for a Horribly Ever After hardcovers yesterday. Yes, hardcovers, as in the edition exclusive to the REUTS Publications website. I ordered extras with the intent of showcasing them around Portland, but unfortunately, USPS had other ideas. I don’t know what happened to this poor box, but it must have fallen off at least one truck and narrowly escaped the jaws of the Mail-room Monster. It arrived on my doorstep in a mangled, barely-held-together-with-packing-tape, sad little pile. So I think you can guess what that meant for the precious cargo inside.
Yep, all but one copy were damaged. I cried. Okay, maybe not outwardly, but I did shed a tear on the inside. Some of the copies were salvageable, but a few were beyond what I would feel comfortable charging money for. Which brings us to today’s post. Not one to waste books (because that’s sacrilege — SACRILEGE, I tell you!), I’ve decided to offer the four worst offenders to anyone willing to give them a good home. Yes, they’re a little rough around the edges; yes, they’re not the pure-bred version we would have preferred, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still be loved. The interiors are pristine. It’s only the spine that got a little munched on. See? I’ll show you:
So, whaddya say? Want to give these little guys some place safe and warm? Turn my disappointment into your boon and enter to win here. I’ll choose four winners tomorrow morning and will ship them out by the end of next week. (US only, I’m afraid. Sorry!)
And don’t forget about the other fantastic giveaway currently running here at Nightwolf’s Corner, where you could win a full manuscript edit and custom cover design! That one’s located here; go enter. Seriously! It’s a ridiculous prize and someone’s going to be very lucky when they win it.
