Join the Twilght Phalanx--an elite group of readers hidden all over the U.S. and Canada, waiting to be called into action on special assignments. Members of the Phalanx will be given access to a special website where they can interact with characters from the book as well as reading advanced copies of the sequel and future books. Currently, Chapter One from the sequel is up!
This weekend's mission is important. Deseret Book, a large book retailer in the Western U.S., is getting ready to clear shelf space for new arrivals. This means they will be returning copies of The Kindling to the publisher, which means they may be less likely to carry the sequel, Penumbras. So, we'd like those copies to be purchased, not returned.
Anyone who buys a copy of The Kindling this week at Deseret Book will be initiated into the Phalanx. In addition to gaining access to the secret website, you (or your child) will also be entered into a drawing to have your name or your child’s name appear as a character in Penumbras and a drawing for a $10 iTunes gift card. (Please note: If you are a minor, I’ll need to get your parent’s permission before using your name.)
You can join by purchasing a copy of The Kindling at Deseret Book between now and January 26th. You'll get one entry into the drawing for every copy you purchase (you’ll also be enrolled on the secret scroll of Twilight Phalanx members!) You’ll also get an extra entry if you share this information on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Just email me a copy of your receipt, or a photo of you holding the receipt, or email me and I'll give you an address where you can mail the receipt. You can contact me here. If you have any problems, leave a comment below!
If you don't live by a Deseret Book, that's okay too--you can buy it online: http://deseretbook.com/Middle-School-Magic-Vol-1-Kindling-Braden-Bell/i/5083457
Many thanks--and I'll be excited to welcome you to the Twilight Phalanx!
