We’re really excited to be publishing Sam Maggs’s first book, The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy. And not just because she appreciates the film Pacific Rim and understands when we say we have a “drift compatible” author / publisher relationship.
Although that is certainly part of it.
There’s a lot planned for this book’s debut. We released an epic poster at New York Comic Con (that subsequently took on a life of its own on Tumblr); we revealed the cover on The Nerdist; we’re putting together a blog tour; and Sam is busy lining up epic appearances at conventions throughout Canada and here in the States.
But what about YOU? Well, we’ve put together a pre-order campaign, just for you Sam Maggs fans out there. Read on to find out how you can get signed bookplates, limited signed posters, and other awesome Fangirl swag.
NOTE FOR ALL PRE-ORDER-ERS: To enter, email a photo or a screenshot of your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Fangirl Pre-order." Make sure you send us your shipping address with your entry!
