One Month To Blightborn Preorder Contest: Win A Kindle Paperwhite

Blightborn: Heartland, Book #2
Hey, sooooo. Here’s something.

Planning on pre-ordering Blightborn?

If you do, you could win a Kindle Paperwhite.

Blightborn, Book Two in my Heartland series, continues the adventures of the Big Sky Scavengers in a cornpunk agri-dystopi-pocalyptic future where the poor Heartlanders scrabble in the dust and the bloodthirsty corn while the rich Empyrean flotillas float above their heads.

The official description:

Cael McAvoy is on the run. He’s heading toward the Empyrean to rescue his sister, Merelda, and to find Gwennie before she’s lost to Cael forever. With his pals, Lane and Rigo, Cael journeys across the Heartland to catch a ride into the sky. But with Boyland and others after them, Cael and his friends won’t make it through unchanged.

Gwennie’s living the life of a Lottery winner, but it’s not what she expected. Separated from her family, Gwennie makes a bold move—one that catches the attention of the Empyrean and changes the course of an Empyrean man’s life.

The crew from Boxelder aren’t the only folks willing to sacrifice everything to see the Empyrean fall. The question is: Can the others be trusted?

They’d all better hurry. Because the Empyrean has plans that could ensure that the Heartland never fights back again.

Chuck Wendig’s riveting sequel to Under the Empyrean Sky plunges readers into an unsettling world of inequality and destruction, and fleshes out a cast of ragtag characters all fighting for survival and, ultimately, change.

It also features more than one Pegasus. And a grackle named “Erasmus.”

Just so you know.


So, the book comes out next month in Kindle, paperback, and hardback (yep, all three formats at once). Preorder any of these — and send me proof of said pre-order — and you might win the aforementioned Kindle Paperwhite. (Extra bonus: pre-order the Kindle version, which is only $3.99, and you get a free short story set before Under the Empyrean Sky.)

I’ll also toss a prize-pack to a runner-up.

Prize-pack is a handful of my books devalued with my signature:

The Kick-Ass Writer

Under the Empyrean Sky (hardcover)

Unclean Spirits 

The Cormorant
