My debut middle-grade novel, THE BOY, THE BOAT, AND THE BEAST, comes out on June 26, and I’m so grateful for the love it has received.
To say thank you, I’ve come up with gifts for everyone who pre-orders the novel, a special grand prize for one lucky reader, and a way for you to get a personalized copy for you or a young reader you love.
Pre-Order Gifts For Everyone
Everyone who pre-orders THE BOY, THE BOAT, AND THE BEAST will get a signed bookmark, signed bookplate, “Make Your Own Courage” sticker, and comfort square. What’s a comfort square, you ask? Well, the Boy in the novel has one thing when he wakes up alone on the spooky beach: A piece of fabric in his pocket, which helps him through the tough times. The comfort square is your own piece of fabric, and it’s super soft. Look at what my friend and author Lucia DiStefano said about hers:
My latest obsession. It’s genius & so soft. Comfort Square. U’ll want to pet it (& unlike my cat, it won’t walk off when I pet too much). It’s swag for @samclarkwrites ‘s THE BOY, THE BOAT, & THE BEAST. Get urs @ preorder or @BookPeople party on Jul 28#MakeYourOwnCourage #MGlit pic.twitter.com/oRrVk8lSEU

I hope you’ll love your comfort square as much as I love mine.
Grand Prize For One
One reader who pre-ordered THE BOY, THE BOAT, AND THE BEAST will get 3 of the regular pre-order gift of a signed bookmark, bookplate, “Make Your Own Courage” sticker and comfort square, PLUS a THE BOY, THE BOAT, AND THE BEAST boat—hand-painted by me!—cuddly owl and owl bookmark. After June 26, the winner will be chosen randomly from all the pre-orders.
