Raffle for Rising Phoenix: Donate to Win a Signed Copy of Scott Westerfeld’s GOLIATH

This summer, I said that I’ll be unveiling a couple of additional surprises for people who donate to the Rising Phoenix Fund. The first one came into the mail recently…

What is this you say?

A signed review copy of Scott Westerfeld’s GOLIATH!

That’s right. Be the coolest steampunk ever & read the thrilling conclusion to the Leviathan trilogy BEFORE it pubs in September! You’ll be the envy of all of your friends.

And did I mentioned this is signed? You’ll be holding a book that Scott once held. Now that’s pretty sweet.

Anyone who donates from July 1st through July 31st can get a chance to win this book.

All you need is to donate directly to Shelterbox or buy a button from Button Me Up. Your info will automatically be entered to win, and the winner will be announced on August 1st.

Summary of GOLIATH for the curious:

Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alek’s throne as prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the Leviathan, continues to detour farther away from the heart of the war (and crown). And the love thing would be a lot easier if Alek knew Deryn was a girl. (She has to pose as a boy in order to serve in the British Air Service.) And if they weren’t technically enemies.

The tension thickens as the Leviathan steams toward New York City with a homicidal lunatic on board: secrets suddenly unravel, characters reappear, and nothing is at it seems in this thunderous conclusion to Scott Westerfeld’s brilliant trilogy.

Good luck to all of our donors!

  1. Well, I don’t know why, but every time I try to donate, through Shelter Box or Button Me Up, Spain doesn’t exist and I’m not able to do it. What should/could I do?

  2. Eeeee! Placing my button order now! :D

  3. Done! I ordered me a set of buttons! (Actually, three sets: 1 Rising Phoenix set, and two Harry Potter sets). Good luck with the fundraising!

  4. For those ordering buttons online, please make sure you include a note in your order saying you want to be in the Rising Phoenix raffle so I can include you!

    • Btw, this is Morgan Payne, my co-partner in the Rising Phoenix Fund.

      To clarify here, ANYONE who donates in July will be entered to win a copy of Goliath.

      But if you ALSO want to be entered in the final prize pack giveaway in September featuring goods from Jake Von Slatt, the Foglios, Cherie Priest, Gail Carriger, James Ng, and Vernian Process, then please ALSO let Morgan know with your button purchase/ Shelterbox donation.

    Is this competition open worldwide? Like, even in Australia? I’m not sure I can get buttons – mailing reasons? :(.
    I hope you’re having good luck with the donations!!

    • This contest is open to whoever who donates, so yes, this can be worldwide (I just have to figure out shipping!)

      We can also make a special order for buttons if you wish — you’ll just have to pay extra for shipping. Email me your order request at attic.hermit@gmail.com and I can forward this to Morgan, who can contact you about shipping & payment arrangements.

      Good luck!
