Street team updates, pictures to share, and more.

So first of all, the winner for last week's Romantic Times random grab bag prize drawing is:


Email me at readbree(at)gmail(dot)com and I'll send you the list of random prizes to choose from.

Next item of business: Chapter 3 is up on Romantic Times! If you haven't already--head on over there, comment, then come back here and let me know you did, so you can be entered in a drawing for a prize out of my random grab bag.

Also, don't forget about the Huge Frakkin' Giveaway. Contest ends Dec. 14th and all you have to do is comment to be entered. Extra entries are available for those who do something fun and creative to help promote TDD.

On that note-- I wanted to share with everyone how awesomely cool my street team is. Seriously, they completely and totally rock and I can't thank them enough for all their efforts to spread the word about The Dark Divine so far.

Several of the street team members took advantage of the gatherings centered around the release of New Moon to show some Team Daniel support with their TDD shirts and by passing out bookmarks and stickers at the theaters--so I thought I'd share a few of the pictures they sent me.

Alexus showing off her mad SWAG distribution skills.

Debbie at one of the New Moon Party events she helped organize.

Sarah handing out bookmarks in line (even though she didn't get to see the movie that night, she still stuck around to hand out SWAG. How cool is that?!)

Katie in TX and Kelly in NY were able to put book marks in hundreds of SWAG bags for the attendees of the premier parties they were hosting.

Amber handing out bookmarks and talking up TDD before the movie starts.

And the Literati group went all out filling a whole row with TDD shirts after spending the preshow time handing out SWAG.

Hubby even got into it and was able to get some co-workers to wear the TDD shirt at work and pass out even more SWAG at the movie release that evening.

Like I said: Awesomely cool, right?

Hey Bree, I'm stoked to read your book. Congrats again. Brick showed us an actual copy. Very cool and I bet a bit surreal for you.
BTW I took that picture of Brick and Don with the t-shirts. :)

Anyway, have a great day!

No fair! I've been waiting a whole week for a new chapter and it was not even 3 1/2 pages long! I feel gypped. :(

Elena Jube said...

I just got an email the other day from Borders saying they haven't forgotten about the order I placed months ago for a book called The Dark Divine--it's backordered and will be here in a few weeks. I'm excited to see it officially in print at last, just in time for Christmas. What better present than to see your own book sitting on the bookstore shelf! Go, Bree!

Jessy said...

I am loving this so far. I'm glad you have such loyal fans.
I commented at RT and Tweeted (emma015)
