Exclusive Swag for A Time to Speak…for you!

UPDATE: This swag is no longer available. Thank you to all who pre-ordered!


Swag. It’s the cool thing right now (isn’t it?) You know, bookmarks, pins, stickers…all related to awesome books. Well, I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon swagwagon and put together some AWESOMENESS for you.

(Yes, you.)

I just got boxes and boxes of swag in, designed by yours truly. And what do you have to do to get this swag? It’s simple, really:

If you’ve ordered A Time to Speak, enter your mailing address below. No, I don’t need proof (I trust you!) Yes, it’s free. I know it doesn’t make sense, so I’ll spell it out for you again:

  1. A-Time-to-Speak-Nadine-BrandesOrder A Time to Speak
  2. Enter your mailing address below
  3. You shall receive an envelope of awesome and exclusive swag. (Tweet this) No one has seen this swag before! It’s exclusive to A Time to Speak. This is the only time you can get this swag. Next year’s will be different.
  4. I will mail out all swag the day after the Facebook party:  October 20th.

Your mailing address will not be used for any promotional or spammy purposes. It won’t be saved. You won’t be stalked. Etcetera. There is a limited amount of swag. I mean…there’a a lot to go around, but I’m human. I have limits. So — because everyone loves getting snail mail — sign up for your free package of swag now! (Tweet this)

And then, because this is a gift and gifts are fun to give to other people, here’s a graphic that took me way too long to put together last night — *sleepy eyes* — for you to share with anyone else you know who enjoys the series!

Be sure to pin/share/tweet this with your friends so they don't miss out! :-)

On another fun note…the Pinterest board for A Time to Speak has been…REVEALED! (Tweet this) I’ll be adding to it over the next month and several of the pictures have quotes (sneak peeks!) from the book. Check it out, re-pin, share, all that good stuff. This is for you, my dear readers. All for you. 🙂

Parvin Blackwater - A Time to Speak

This is just the start of the month-long-launch for A Time to Speak. Can you believe it releases in three weeks? I’m terrified so excited for everyone to read it. Okay, I’ll admit…I really am rather nervous for this release. There. Now you know, I don’t have it all together. [grin] But I personally think A Time to Speak is even better than A Time to Die. Read it and tell me! 😛

Those are all the gifts I have for you today! Stay tuned for more via my Newsletter and blog! It’s only just begun…

What would you like to see in a package of swag?

Do you…like the Pinterest board? *chews fingernails*



About Nadine Brandes

Nadine Brandes is an adventurer, fusing authentic faith with bold imagination. She never received her Hogwarts letter, but rest assured she’s no Muggle (and would have been in Ravenclaw House, thank you very much.) This Harry Potter super-nerd has been known to eat an entire package of Oreos (family size) by herself, and watches Fiddler on the Roof at least once a year. She writes about brave living, finding purpose, and other worlds soaked in imagination. Her dystopian trilogy (The Out of Time Series) challenged her to pursue shalom, which is now her favorite word (followed closely by bumbershoot.) When Nadine’s not taste-testing a new chai or editing fantasy novels, she and her knight-in-shining armor (nickname: “hubby”) are out pursuing adventures.
