Pre-Order Gifts

On March 30th, my latest YA fantasy, Bone Crier’s Dawn, the sequel to Bone Crier’s Moon, will release from HarperCollins. I’m so excited to share the conclusion of Ailesse’s, Sabine’s, and Bastien’s adventures! I’m giving away a set of exclusive gifts to anyone who pre-orders a copy through a bookstore or online retailer–even international readers! However, books obtained through book box subscriptions don’t qualify. I pay for these pre-order gifts and the postage to ship them myself, and I don’t have the means to send out several thousand. I hope you understand!

The pre-order gifts include an 11×17 poster of the gorgeous book cover, illustrated by the incredible Charlie Bowater, and 2 double-sided bookmarks featuring the characters on the cover, Ailesse and Sabine.

In total, you’ll receive:

» An 11×17 poster of the book cover
» A set of two double-sided bookmarks featuring the characters from the cover
» 1 autographed “Kathryn Purdie” bookplate


Pre-order Bone Crier’s Dawn by 11:59 p.m. (MT), March 3o, 2021, and fill out the form below. That’s all you have to do to claim my incentive prizes (available while supplies last). Again, this is open internationally! I’m holding you to the honor system, so I’m not requiring proof of purchase; you just need to tell me where you ordered the book. I want to make this process as simple as possible! (Scroll down to the bottom of this page for links to outlets that sell Bone Crier’s Dawn. Not required, but I’d LOVE if you could support my local indie, The King’s English Bookshop.) Email with any questions.
