SHINE has arrived at Constellation!

THAT ^^^, my friends, is a giant stack o' SHINE, just delivered this morning to my local bookseller, Constellation Books.

(OK, it's not all SHINE. There are some SHIFTs in there, too.)

That means if you've preordered your copy, I will sign it Monday morning and it will ship THAT DAY, a full week ahead of release date.

All orders through Constellation Books will not only be autographed, but will also include signed bookmarks and a signed Keeley Brothers sticker.

If you haven't preordered yet, there's still time! All orders received by Sunday at 6pm eastern will be fulfilled Monday. Orders received after that will be signed the following Sunday and shipped Monday, April 30.

All copies will be signed and personalized to the first name of the person placing the order, unless you specify otherwise in the comments on the order form (i.e., if you want just a signature, or if you want it made out to someone else).

IMPORTANT: If you want your copy/copies signed, you MUST say so in the comments of the order form. Now that there are copies in the warehouse, the warehouse will ship an unsigned copy directly to you, rather than through the bookstore, if you don't leave a comment. 

Also, PLEASE be specific as to whether you want it personalized to you and what name you'd like me to sign it to. Saying "I want a signed copy" makes me wonder if you just want an autograph with no name. I want to make sure you're getting exactly what you want!

International readers: To order from Constellation (probably a faster way to get SHINE than Book Depository, honestly), use the "Email Us" link on the left side of their website. Lauretta will contact you for your credit card information for shipping. There may be a delay of a few days while she calculates the exact amount.

Also, the store is closed Mondays and Tuesdays, so on those days, don't expect an immediate response.


Head on over to Kilt & Keeley (the fab SHADE fan site) and grab your free Zach & Logan trading card! They'll send you a card for each copy of SHINE you order by April 30 from any bookseller. Plus you'll be entered to win a grand prize cornucopia that grows with every entry! (Their goal is 100 preorders, and they're over halfway there already--eee!)

Preordered weeks/months ago? You can still claim your trading card prize--just dig up that old receipt from the depths of your inbox.

Gotta get back to writing my newsletter (SO MUCH NEWS--oh, and a SHINE giveaway, of course. If you're not a subscriber, there's a signup box on the right sidebar of the blog.), but I want to say a giant THANK YOU to everyone who has preordered SHINE, from Constellation or anywhere else. Every preorder tells a bookseller that this is a book people want. It does make a difference.

(If you haven't read about the SHINE birthday celebration yet, check out my blog post from earlier this week. Chats, giveaways, mass reader interview of me, and more!)

PS: If you need incentive to buy SHINE, I have finally found an actor who perfectly matches the image of Zachary that has lived in my head for over four years:

(Click image for larger, even more swoon-tastical version. Hat tip to Terri at My Book Boyfriend for her review of SHADE that included another, more come-hithery shot of Sean Faris.)

Have a great weekend!

Yay! I'm so glad, my image matched yours.

Does that mean I can get an Arc of Shine? Well, a girl can as, lol!

Haha, Terri, sorry, the ARCs are long gone, but I will edit my post to credit your review for the revelation. :)

EEEK! This post was full of happy, and then I got to the end and it was full of YUMMY. He is absolutely how I envisioned Zachary...perfect, perfect, PERFECT!

Thanks for the reminder to preorder, too! I already have my copy of Shine, but I want the whole matching set...SIGNED! :D

Oh my word... definitely swooning over here. What an amazing Zachary!

Thanks very much for the reminder to pre-order! I'm so excited to finally have a complete set of your AMAZING books. You are simply spectacular... just so's ya know. :)

That is a great Zachary, but first the reminiscing about Logan, making me all teary and now Zach's flight going down!! I'm already crying! I know he's not dead. You wouldn't have a book if he was. But Man do you know how to wring the tears out of me already in the first few sentences. I miss Logan even if I am a die hard Zachary fan!

Still haven't found that one Scared Rabbit song I like. Not even on Spotify.

Heather, you mean Frightened Rabbit? :)
