My Oct. 25 Launch Party at Powell's Books . . . and How You Can Order a Signed Copy

The Cure for Dreaming debuted Tuesday, October 14, but I'm holding off on any major celebrations due to my son's upcoming 10th birthday (getting upstaged by Mom's new book is no way for a child to usher in the era of double digits).

On Saturday, October 25, however, I will be celebrating the novel in grand style at Powell's Books in Beaverton, Oregon. If you live in the Portland region, here are the full details for the event:

Saturday, October 25, 2014
4:00 pm

Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing 
3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd.
Beaverton, Oregon
Come dressed in a Halloween costume—or dressed as your true hidden self—to enter to win giveaways.

If you can't make it to the event but would still like to buy a signed copy, Powell's has a nice and easy ordering option:

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone who can make it!

THE CURE FOR DREAMING International Spotted-in-the-Wild Giveaway!

Samples of the poster.
It's the official release day!!!! Now that The Cure for Dreaming is showing up in bookstores and libraries around the globe, I'm offering a Spotted-in-the-Wild giveaway, open internationally! The full prize package is listed below, but one of the giveaway items will be a signed, limited-edition poster featuring the cover of The Cure for Dreaming.

The giveaway will run until December 8, 2014, so don't worry if The Cure for Dreaming hasn't yet reached your area. If you live outside the regions in which the novel will be sold, Book Depository offers free shipping to several countries around the world.

Here are the rules:

1. You must be 13 years or older to enter.

2. Take a picture of yourself with a finished hardcover copy of The Cure for Dreaming. The book can be located at a bookstore, your house, a librarywhereverbut it must be a finished hardcover, not an ebook or paperback proof. If your bookstore does not have a copy in stock, please request them to order it (you'll then have my sincerest gratitude!).

3. Post the photo somewhere online (Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter—anywhere that can involve a link to the photo).

4. Fill out the following form to let me know where you posted the photo. You must submit your entry through this form in order to be eligible for the giveaway.

5. If you post the photo on more than one day, or on more than one site, the posting will indeed count as an extra entry, but please fill out the form each time you share the photo.

6. The giveaway is international. These posters are not easy to ship, so this will likely be a one-time-only opportunity. :)

The giveaway will close at midnight PST on Monday, December 8, 2014. Three winners will then be randomly drawn from all of the entries.

The prize:

Three winners will receive one signed, limited-edition poster featuring the cover of The Cure for Dreaming. The posters are a beautiful, glossy quality, and the cover art jumps out in a vivid shade of green (see the photo above). Winners will also receive The Cure for Dreaming bookmarks and a signed bookplate. As I said above, the giveaway is open internationally. 
Bookmarks and signed bookplate.
