OUR YEAR OF MAYBE Preorder Gifts

The Our Year of Maybe preorder campaign, aka dandelionpalooza, is now live! The book comes out 1/15/19, and if you preorder any time between now and 1/14/19, you’ll receive some excellent goodies. Preorders help authors so much, and these gifts are my way of saying thank you.

Email full name, mailing address, and proof of purchase to rachel.l.solomon[at]gmail[dot]com

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository | Indigo | IndieBound | Kobo

Everyone receives:

  • Bookmark

  • Signed bookplate

  • MAYBE vinyl sticker (about 1.5 x 3.5 inches)

  • Adorable dandelion enamel pin!

The three pieces of flat swag (bookmark, bookplate, and sticker) are international, but the dandelion pins are U.S. only. Since I’m covering shipping costs myself, I hope you understand. I’ll have a few more international pin giveaways leading up to release.

Also: I’m partnering with my amazing local indie, Third Place Books, to offer signed copies! If you preorder from them, you’ll also receive a dandelion temporary tattoo. When you check out, please write in the “Order comments” section how you’d like me to personalize your book. Media mail shipping from the store is $3.50.

Three grand prize winners receive:

  • Everything listed above

  • Dandelion book beau

  • Dandelion makeup bag

  • Dandelion lip balm

  • Chinchillin’ enamel pin (in honor of a character’s pet chinchilla named Mark)

  • Signed You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone paperback (also out 1/15/19)

  • The chance to name a character in my 2020 book!

International readers are eligible to win a grand prize.

Here’s what everything looks like!


Library requests:

If you request that your local library order a copy of Our Year of Maybe, email me a screenshot of your request and I’ll send you a bookmark and a MAYBE vinyl sticker!

More details:

Orders of any format of the book are eligible to receive preorder gifts. I’ll be sending all gifts between December 2018 and January 2019. I plan to respond to all emails, so please let me know if you haven’t received a confirmation email. Once again, please send proof of purchase to rachel.l.solomon[at]gmail[dot]com. Proof of purchase can be an attachment, pasted in the email, or a forwarded email confirmation from the retailer.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you—I can’t wait to share this book and these goodies with you!
