the clockwork giant giveaway

[Sorry for the lateness of the post. My sleep schedule is all wonky after a weekend of Skyrim.]

It’s finally time for a giveaway!

In one month, The Clockwork Giant will be available for purchase, but what’s the fun in waiting until December to read it? I’m giving away an indefinite number of eARCs to an indefinite number of readers. It just depends on how many people enter. I think for every ten people who comment on this post, I will give away one copy. And, don’t worry, you can increase your odds.

Not only will the giveaway take place on my blog, but you can also enter through Google+, Facebook, and Twitter. Each site will have a separate giveaway, and you can enter all four of them. Please note, however, while it increases your odds to enter all four, if you win one, then your name will be removed from the other three giveaways.

So how do you enter?

First, comment on this post. Easy peasy.

Second, tweet about the giveaway on Twitter. Something along the lines of “RT if you want to win an eARC of the YA Steampunk novel THE CLOCKWORK GIANT by @brookenomicon”. Any sort of wording will work; just make sure you tag me in it. And it would be nice if you followed me too, but it's not necessary to win.

Third, comment on this post on Facebook, or post on my wall. It would also be nice if you "like" me while you're there, but that's not necessary either.

Fourth, comment on this post on Google+. If you share the post to your circles, be sure to include the link to the post so that people can comment on the original. And again, if you'd circle me, that's be awesome, but not necessary.

So there you are. Four ways to win an eARC of The Clockwork Giant. Enter by midnight, Sunday November 20th, and I'll announce the winners next Monday, who will have to send me an email or DM or whatever with their contact info so that I can get the eARC to them. 

Comment and spread the word!

About the book:

It's 1881, the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Chroniker City, the global hub of technological advancement in the modern world. Based off the British coast, the city is home to the most prestigious polytechnic university worldwide, a center of mechanical ingenuity teaching everything from clockwork mechanics and thermodynamics to electromagnetism and electricity.

Petra Wade, self-taught clockwork engineer, dreams of one day becoming a member of the Guild, an elite group of inventors and innovators who envision a future fueled by technology, but her ambitions will only come to fruition if she can find a way into the illustrious university—an institution reserved for men only. When she meets Emmerich Goss, an accomplished engineer newly recruited into the Guild, Petra discovers that he needs help building a top-secret, government-sanctioned automaton, and she is just the girl to help him.

Together, they craft the clockwork giant, and as the deadline for its completion nears, Petra finds that she can love more than gears and mainsprings.

And there's a nifty little book trailer in the sidebar if you have a minute to spare.
