One Week to Go!

One week until BOUNDLESS!

I am now under the ever-pounding waves of pre-launch preparation: designing this season's bookmarks and patches (oh yes, there will be Unearthly patches again this year, Team Tucker or Team Christian!), making sure all my tour clothes fit, picking nail polish colors, filling out the seemingly-never-ending flow of interviews and guest posts, signing copies for other people's giveaways, checking that my Sharpie supply is adequate. You know, author stuff. It's fun. Really. Mostly.

So, a few orders of business to go over. First:


The trailer is here! The trailer is here! I love it!


*Does a little happy dance!*

This year it all feels a bit different from the other years. This is the END, the last book of the series, and it feels so bittersweet to me. Some days I think, I miss Clara. It's been a while since I had her voice in my head. . . And I am so excited to find out what the fans will think of how everything plays out. I hope you like it!

Second: Those of you who entered my Radiant pre-order giveaway, fear not. I have ordered the special-signed something, which is just taking a while to come, so I can sign it and mail it to you. Don't worry--it will get there! And I think you'll really like it. . .

Third: I am about to go on tour. Click above on my Events page to see where and when!

Fourth: I am already on a wonderful blog tour. Check this out. All you ever wanted to know about me and the Unearthly series, and BOUNDLESS, coming your way over the next couple of weeks!

And last: a new giveaway. I am giving away 4 signed copies of the Boundless ARC! All you have to do is share the BOUNDLESS trailer on your facebook page, your twitter feed, or in your own personal blog! You can also enter by spreading around my new countdown widget from the top left corner!

Just wondering, when does the contest start? The Rafflecopter won't let me enter yet; it says the contest starts soon.

Love the Boundless trailer, by the way! :)

Cynthia Hand said...

Yeah, Rafflecopter makes me wait until midnight on the date I enter the contest. So. . .midnight!

I'm not entering because I already pre-ordered Boundless. Can internationals get bookmarks or bookplates too? >.<

missrelena said...

Sooo cool! I love the trailer! (Can I get cool things for my book club? Who do I need to bribe for bookmarks & plates?)

Sarah said...

I can't wait to read Boundless! Do you have a UK publication date yet? I'm not sure if I can hold out long enough for the UK paperback or if I'm going to have to cave in & order the US hardback!

Thanks for holding the giveaway, there was no way of showing how we shared the Boundless trailer so I thought I'd leave a link to my blog post in the comments so you can verify my entry:
