HORNS will be out in trade paperback next month, and to promote it, we’ve cooked up a deal with the devil (hur hur hur). I’m going to sign and doodle a 1,000 bookplates, and while supplies last, you can get yourself one. All you have to do is preorder a copy of the book, and send your proof of purchase to firstname.lastname@example.org with HORNS BOOKPLATE in the subject line. You must also include your MAILING ADDRESS in the email. Only one per household. Satanically easy, right?
What qualifies as proof of purchase? A scan or photo of a receipt works. Or, if you order from an online retailer, just forward your receipt from them. If you have safety concerns, feel free to delete any personal info from your receipt (although neither Amazon or Barnes & Noble include your credit card info in their receipts, so there’s not a lot to worry about there – they do include mailing addresses, but of course you have to provide that anyway). Hell, we’d probably accept a photo of you standing next to a bookseller, the dude holding your money, and grinning. That’s all there is to it.
Thanks guys and I hope you have fun with muh book.
(Update, 1hr later: Note that for the time being, the bookplate offer only applies to US preorders of the HarperCollins Trade Paperback of HORNS. But if I can arrange a similar deal for the Gollancz/Orion paperback, I will.)
