“That’s right. When I was your age, television was called books. And this is a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick, and I used to read it to your father. And today I’m gonna read it to you.”
“Has it got any sports in it?”
“Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles…”
~The Princess Bride
I love that we’ve made a book with all of the above, plus a little bit of kissing thrown in for good measure! Okay, probably a lot of kissing… but who doesn’t like kissing?
Geek Love, as you may know, is out. The print book is beautiful. The ebook version is gorgeous. And we have some good news about both of those:
Sometime in May, we will be offering the remaining exclusive Kickstarter versions of Geek Love at the Kickstarter price of $60 (backers will get first dibs on the remaining books and then we’ll open the sales to the general public). In the future, we’ll also be offering a print-on-demand version of the book (minus the Kickstarter-exclusive goodies like the end papers and the fold-out centerfold) through DriveThru Fiction at a less expensive price.
In the meantime, we’d like to give you the opportunity to win a copy of the print book!
Here’s how it works:
- For every 25 Geek Love ebooks we sell on DriveThru Fiction between now and May 3rd (appropriately — No Pants Day), we’re going to give away one exclusive, signed, print copy of Geek Love.
- We will give away up to five print books! We’ll sign them however you want. I will draw a heart on your shipping package.
- If you’re in the US, we’ll even pay postage. If you’re outside the U.S., we’re going to cry (and, yes, pay your postage).
- You don’t have to purchase a copy of the ebook to enter.
- You CAN increase your odds of winning, however — the more ebooks we sell, the more print books we can give away. Increase your chances by spreading the word about the ebook and the contest, purchasing a copy or leaving a review at the DriveThru site.
- All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below.
- We’ll do daily updates telling you how many ebooks we’ve sold so you can keep track. On May 3rd, we’ll draw our winner(s)!
Feel free to use any of these cool Geek Love images to help spread the word!
Sending true love and miracles, s.
Would love to have a copy! Sell, sell, sell little e-books! Sell, sell, sell! And maybe I’ll get lucky . . . <3
Looks delightful! Please let have a shot a getting one.
And the winner of the first print book is Battana — come and claim your prize! (email me at shanna dot germain at gmail com )
If we sell 19 more ebooks, we’ll be able to give away another print book (we will have some print books available for sale in the future, but they’re going to be very limited and they will cost $60, so this is your chance to get something amazing for free.).
Would be neat and sweet
Book of fantasy and extacy
This is sick awesome! An incredible collaboration … the best way to describe Geek Love. I would get one of these, read the entire thing 10 times and then post pictures and put it up on display in my house! I want it!!!!
What an outstanding collection of contributors, Shanna. It would be an honor to receive a copy of Geek Love. Cheers to all who made the book possible!
This looks gorgeous. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book.
I just discovered your website and the book looks fantastic. I’d love to win a copy. Thank you for the opportunity!
Just got the ebook!
Oh YESS. I’m there!
Another one from torment who missed the kickstarter. Will probably get the digital version anyway but a print copy is easier to share with friends. I may make you cry though, sorry. International shipping is a pain.
Found your book through the Torment video you starred in recently.. What can I say? Darn.. missed the kickstarter campaign; would have been a perfect gift for a special someone! Here’s hoping to get a print copy if there’s any left for sale. *fingers crossed*
I regret not participating in the kickstart for this book. I’d love a copy now.
Really want to win a copy! It looks great!
Looks amazing, well done to all involved!
Here’s hoping you send lots to the UK! (Sorry in advance ;-))
All I hope is that this lovely new tome can be read:
a – horizontal
b – with one hand
c – with….company!
This book looks great! I can’t wait to read it!
Taking a chance… Hear great things!!
I can’t wait to get myself a copy! This turned out beautifully!
So wish I’d donated to kickstarter – damn fool for missing out (especially as the editor is in our LARP group)
So need to have this book on my bookshelf!
I’m in the UK though.. so.. you know.. postage 😀
Good luck with the competition and promotion!!
One of the many who missed the Kickstarter, but would love to have a print copy, and, more importantly, see you succeed wildly with this. All luck, Shanna!
I think the move to DriveThru was a great decision! It will spread the book farther than the company of dolts who dropped your book, originally.
Geek Love is what it’s all about!
Books are made for touching.
Yes please, sign me up!
I’ve bought the ebook version, but definately want the print one, too. 😀
would absolutely love a copy. in far away downunder, but of course will happily pay postage!
Love the look of this. I am continuously weeping for the future of the printed word.
Hoping for one! I need more books than just school books.
Would love a copy!
Commenting – would love a book! But will pay my postage 🙂
I’d be interested.
Gotta get my hands on something…palms so sweaty.
Anything for a free book!!!! 😉
I would love to win a copy of this!
I bought a copy of the ebook, would be nice to have a print copy too!
I missed out on the Kickstarter, but eeeeee a chance to have a print one!
Wow, looks great! Somehow I missed the Kickstarter, but would love to stumble into a copy… =D
Thanks all — you’re wonderful! I wish you could all win…. that would be the best.
Yes, Tim, Jen Page did work on this with us. Her steampunk centerfold is in both the ebook and the print version!
Awesome opportunity for people to possibly score a copy of this book. Very generous of you!
Would love to have a copy. Missed the kickstarter
Thank you for this opportunity!
A wild entry appears!
This book sounds like fun. I’d love a copy.
Is this the same “Geek Love” project that Jen Page did a photoshoot for? If so, that’s enough for me to want a copy, and the rest is, as they say, gravy.
If I don’t win, where can I buy I print copy again?
Very cool. Hope you sell tons.
I would really love to get my hands on one of these copies. I am just fixing a few things so I can buy my ebook copy, but a physical one would be wonderful (I must admit, I love the smell of dead tree versions of books of the 1s and 0s of digital ones).
This book is 100% my kinda thing <3
I give Drivethru… too much money so what’s a few quid more. New item in my wish list for pay day.
I’ll spread the word! (as well as love)
I would love to give a copy of this to my wife. I think she would get a kick out of it.
Of course I’m entering. I love my ebook but I have to try for the hard copy. I’m still flogging myself for not being part of the Kickstarter. A fool am I.
Truly wonderful how things have taken off with the book!
Been a bit short of cash with not working. But would love to have a copy if one comes my way.
Best wishes, and grats on an amazing journey!!
I’d love to win a copy.
My wife sooo wants a copy of this. (Me too but that’s a secret. Shhh)
There is few things I wouldn’t do to get my hands on this book. Leaving a comment here is not one of them. Crawling across the Sahara Desert at night with a Declawed Midget Hermaphrodite on my back is.
That’s very cool, I’m game! Well worth seeing it sell well!
I <3 Shanna!!!!
*raises hand* and will continue to spread the word. 🙂
Geek-a-licious! Will help spread the word!
I’m sorry I missed getting in on the Kickstarter. I’d love to have a print copy of the book.
As a fellow author soon putting up a project on Indiegogo (because I’m in Montreal, Canada. Kickstarter is US only), I like to support other projects like this.
I’m enjoying my copy. It even has my name in it.
Awesome deal and giveaway! I will be sharing this.
Me me me me….I want to win one.
Missed the kickstarter..keeping my fingers crossed here..
I’ll be sure to share on my tumblr and get the word out!
Sorry I missed your kickstarter…will repost on FB
I feel bad for not getting in on this kickstarter!
This is my entry!
Spreading the word to make sure folks know about this chance to win some hardcopy ba-donk-a-DONK! 😉
I hope nothing but success for this and all your future endeavors.
I have the ebook already but fool that I am, I didn’t order the print version on the kickstarter. I would love to have a print copy! Count me in! Pretty Please!!!!!
I’m leaving a comment! I’ll sell you guys as much as I can on my Twitter and Facebook during a lull. Keep up the great work.
