Everyone loves limited editions…and this is about as limited as it gets. Robin had the great idea of printing up a handful (10 copies) of the version of Rhune that will go out to the beta readers (and yes beta readers, she is still behind but getting closer to getting people picked and the beta released). At this point, only myself and Robin have read the book in this state, and those who receive these limited editions will have a rare peak at the difference between the beta and the final version. Because these are beta versions, the books haven’t been copy edited, so expect a grammar issue here and there. That said, they have been gone over quite a bit already so the copies aren’t as rough as say a first draft.
To give away these copies I have several giveaways running:
- Beta readers – 1 drawing will be made from those who filled out the survey. You don’t have to do anything else to be entered – you have a 1 in 418 chance to win (yes there were that many beta readers signed up!)
- Goodreads users – 2 drawings will be made from an official goodreads giveaway. (If you aren’t yet a member of goodreads, you can sign up for free.) I have no idea how many entries there will be, but if past giveaways are any indication, it will probably be 1 in 800. After just one day there are 700 people entered so that estimate may be low. Here is the link to enter.
- Dark Room member – 1 drawing will be made exclusively for member of The Dark Room (presently about 880 members). Click on the link in the header to enter. For those who don’t know, The Dark Room is a secret and private group where readers get access to special perks (like this one). If you aren’t a member and want to become one, send me an email (michael (dot) sullivan (dot) dc (at) gmail (dot) com – with the subject of DARK ROOM INVITE.
- Everyone else – 1 drawing will be made from those who sign up for the Rhune early release notifications. Currently, there are 190+ people signed up. Here is a link to add your name to the list.
All drawings will be made at the same time (to make it easy for me to co-ordinate the shipping) 12:00 am EST on November 13. I should also mention all of the giveaways are open regardless of location…I’ll spring for the more expensive overseas shipping.
Good luck to all, and remember you can register for as many giveaways as you qualify for, so feel free to enter more than one.
We will be giving away 5 of these copies to some VERY lucky people. Obviously, these copies won’t be the “final version
The Rhune Beta read is getting close…sorry about the delays but Robin was a bit overwelmed
