A Cyber Monday Giveaway at The Very Last Castle

Castle Winter

The snow is falling at The Very Last Castle and that means it’s time for some good cheer. If you buy a copy of The Very Last Castle between now and the end of the year, I’ll send you a panda bear backpack clip – just like the one the main character (her name is Ibb) has in the book. See?

Here’s how to claim your prize:

  1. Pick up a copy of the book at your favorite location (I recommend McLean & Eakin, but wherever you choose is cool: Indiebound, Amazon, etc.)
  2. After you buy a copy, send me an email at scopenotes (at) gmail (dot) com. Write PANDA in the subject line.
  3. Include your address and how many copies you purchased. I’ll send a panda for every copy.

That’s it! Sit back and wait for your cool backpack clip to arrive.

Let it snow!
