If you preorder from anywhereKilt & Keeley (the fabulous SHADE fan site) will give you a free gift: a cute-beyond-belief Zach & Logan trading card! They will also enter you in the grand prize giveaway, a books/music/swag cornucopia that grows bigger the more preorders they get. Their goal is 100, and they're already 89% of the way there--help them reach their goal, and there will be an explosively huge prize to win.

Remember, EVERYONE who preorders gets a trading card. Nice, huh?


#SHADEboys + Aura Twitter chat Saturday, April 28, 7pm eastern time. Swag, books, and music will be given away as Zachary, Logan, and Aura get us psyched for the Big Day. Easiest way to follow is through TweetChat, which will automatically add the #SHADEboys hashtag to your tweets. Because these chats get really hectic, I will not see your tweet if you don't use the hashtag.

At the beginning of the chat, I'll have a surprise for you! The chat's grand prize will be connected to that surprise, so I can't tell you what the prize is, but I can show you a picture of the sweet Team Kilt swag packs that'll be given out (pic courtesy of @shellseeker93:

The autographed thingie in the lower left-hand corner is one of nine Team Kilt bookplate designs (probably my favorite, featuring the UK cover for SHIFT). Team Kilt bookplates cannot be bought or requested--they can only be won. If you participate in enough Team Kilt events, you might collect all 9! At that point you can get a secret decoder ring that'll let you--oh wait, I guess it's not a secret now. Oops.

So how do you win? Just ask Zach, Logan, and/or Aura a question (but don't forget to use the #SHADEboys hashtag). Even if I don't have time to answer them all, you'll still be entered. Open to international entries.

Hope to see you there!

Can anyone else not see this picture or is it just my computer being dumb again? Still so sad I can't make the chat tomorrow :'( (unless it runs after 10:00...) but have fun everyone!! :)
