The Midnight Dance Pre-Order Incentive

The Midnight Dance hits shelves on October 17th. I’m so excited that you’ll get to meet Penny, Cricket, Master, and the girls of Grand Teatro.

But you don’t have to wait until October 17 to order the book. In fact, if you preorder now, you get FREE goodies and the chance to win an even bigger Grand Prize! It’s all my way of saying thank you for your support!

The Positives of Preordering

  • Preordering almost always ensures that you’ll pay the lowest price; many online retailers have a preorder price guarantee.
  • Preordering means you’ll have The Midnight Dance delivered to your doorstep, most likely on October 17th!
  • Preordering helps authors; when booksellers see interest in an upcoming release, they often purchase and shelve more copies of the book. This gives the novel more exposure and hopefully more sales.

So what’s the incentive …
