Book Preorder Campaigns: Incentives, Swag and Special Editions

Jump to month of interest: 
← Archives | Ongoing | Nov | Dec 2021 || Jan 2022 | Feb | Mar | Apr


Offers last updated November 12, 2021.

★ ps – if you’re a collector, you might also like to check out my new page tracking upcoming special editions as well!

I keep this page regularly updated with links to various pre-order incentives, offers and available swag. Feel free to bookmark and come back to see what’s new, or subscribe for the occasional email update!

I usually leave the previous month’s expired offers up for a few weeks, because sometimes you can still grab the swag if they have any leftovers. Expired offers are then moved to the archives.

If you collect beautiful books, you may also be interested in the new special editions tracker I just started as well.

★ If you’d like to submit an offer to be included here, please contact me directly with the details.

The Amazon and Book Depository links below are affiliate links (if you buy through them they send me a few pennies to support hosting the site without costing you more, so many thanks if you do use them!) but unless specified, you can preorder your books from anywhere so definitely support your local independent brick & mortar stores if possible. 

Expiry dates given for redeeming offers below are provided by the sponsor, and are therefore linked to their location. Supplies do run out occasionally, so it is better to order early if you can!
