This page lists all the planned promotion of Thirteen. It's a work in progress. Details will be added as they become available. I needed to get this page up to link to it in the July 1 newsletter, so details are a little sketchy on some Wink

I've divided the promos by territory. Please remember that I have 3 English-language publishers (US, UK & Canada) That means 3 separate marketing plans. By law, contests are available only in the territory of the sponsoring publisher (as are any promotions involving signed books)* Other promotions, such as online chats, are open to all, regardless of the sponsoring publisher (though I've noted those to give them credit Smiley )

International

- Twitter chat July 23rd at 3PM EDT (sponsored by Dutton) This is the day before release, so it'll be spoiler-free. To join in, follow me on Twitter (@KelleyArmstorng) or just follow the hashtag (to be provided) on the chat date.

- Goodreads chat July 31 (sponsored by Dutton) This one will go all day, with readers posting questions and me answering. This is a week past release, so it'll be open season on spoilers! Links and details to follow.

- Random House will sponsor a second Twitter chat later in the summer for those who miss these two. It will include spoilers. Details to follow!

US Only

- Necklaces! Dutton is giving away 13 necklaces designed to match the one on the cover of Thirteen. To enter, you'll need to provide proof of preorder or take a photo of yourself with one of my books. Details here: http://www.penguin.com/thirteen

- Signed Books! I signed 1800 copies of Thirteen for Dutton. Here is a list of bookstores that bought them and links telling how to get one: http://www.kelleyarmstrong.com/forum/index.php?topic=33025.0

Canada Only

- T-shirts! Random House is designing T-shirts and will give these away via Facebook and Twitter. They're also giving me about 100, some of which I'll save for events, but some I'll give away in contests, which will be international. Details on all to follow.

- Signed book giveaways on Retreat by Random House (URL to follow shortly)

- Goodreads.com contest. All details to follow.

UK Only

- Cover Art Posters! Orbit is doing a "countdown to 13" contest, giving away a signed poster of a book cover each day. For details, see facebook.com/orbitbooksUK or follow them on Twitter at @orbitbooks

* I can't ask other publishers to run the same contest or promotion for their territory. They have their own marketing plans. I have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with these decisions (yeah, can you tell I catch flak everything I announce something is "only for readers in xxx"?)

So excited! Thanks for the info! I canceled my pre-order from another site and instead pre-ordered a signed copy from Barnes & Noble (I had an old gift card I needed to use, so it worked out perfectly)!


As a note, you have the first two internet chats both listed as July 23, and it looks like the second one should be the 30th or 31st instead (you wrote that it's a week after the release).

Can't say I'm feeling Aussie Pride right now! I think the Aussie publishers need to jump on the bandwagon!

Gonna have to set a reminder for myself to sign in for the twitter chat (and figure out the UK time! I'm rubbish at figuring out time differences! My mum is expert though considering she has to keep track of appropriate times to call Chicago, Texas, Ghana and Nigeria to speak to her Sister's, brother and my two brothers!) Have to remember Goodreads as well! Getting really excited for the book now! It's getting so close to the release date!

Hey, I'm from the UK! I've checked as well but it may not be up yet cause I think it'll be from the 11th probably so it can be a 13 day countdown to the book cause that seems to be how the US publisher is doing it, one prize a day over 13 days leading to the book release day so the other publishers UK and Canada are probably gonna be following the same time frame. I'm gonna keep checking the pages to see.

If you want this answered, you'll have more luck putting it in Ask the Author. Kelley doesn't always read the comments posted Smiley
