Aaaah, I’m so excited!! The Cinder paperback will be hitting bookstore shelves NEXT WEEK. I got my shipment in the mail a few days ago and it is GORGEOUS. I just want to hug it and squish it and love it forever and ever… at least, until my SCARLET copies arrive and usurp it. ^_^
So, what’s so special about the CINDER paperback?
Well. Allow me to tell you all about it.
Special Thing #1: “The New York Times Bestseller” is printed on the front cover. Those are some of my favorite words.
Special Thing #2: This pretty shiny sticker that reads: “Special Bonus: Short Story Inside!” (The short story, “Glitches,” is also available as a free download until January 3, for those of you who prefer the digital route.)
Special Thing #3: The back cover includes a pretty picture of the Scarlet cover AND a QR Code that, when scanned, will take you to “an exclusive message from Marissa Meyer!” What is my exclusive message? Er… I’m not really sure. I wrote it a long time ago. You’ll just have to go scan to find out!
Special Thing #4: Gorgeous glossy endpapers that have people saying nice things about my book!
Special Thing #5: The Blogger Thank You! My publisher designed this as a way to show our appreciation to all you wonderful bloggers who have supported the series. I hope you all imagine me hugging you every time you see it.
Special Thing #6: A sneak preview of SCARLET!
Special Thing #7: A Q&A with me, including my favorite reading memories and what I would wear to the ball.
Special Thing #8: A discussion guide for book clubs and classrooms—those of you who have been following this blog for a while might even remember me asking for your suggested questions last spring. Did your question make the cut?!
Now that I have you all craving the paperback with its awesome bonus materials, you have the chance to win one!
