11 Days to Release: Novel SWAG

THE BOY, THE BOAT, AND THE BEAST Pre-Order Gifts

THE BOY, THE BOAT, AND THE BEAST Pre-Order Gifts

For Day 11 of #18DaystoMGDebut, I’m looking at my book’s SWAG, and I do love it.

When I was working on the many revisions for THE BOY, THE BOAT, AND THE BEAST, I had an idea for an item I would give readers if this story ever became an actual book. In 11 days, that book is getting published by Paula Wiseman Books/Simon & Schuster and that item is included in my Pre-Order Thank You Gifts. I call it a “comfort square.”

In the book, the Boy wakes up alone on a mysterious beach and all he has is a piece of blue fabric in his pocket. Thanks to the awesomeness of Spoonflower.com, I created pieces of blue fabric with the book’s title and “Make your own courage,” a line from the book. The fabric is so soft and comforting, and everyone who has received one so far has said they love it. I do love mine. ūüôā

In other THE BOY, THE BOAT, AND THE BEAST SWAG, there are bookmarks featuring the book’s beautiful cover and “Make Your Own Courage” stickers. And for the pre-order Grand Prize, I got a cute owl, and owl bookmark and hand-painted a wooden boat with “THE BOY, THE BOAT, AND THE BEAST” on the sides and “Make Your Own Courage” on the back. I hope the winner loves it.
