Two weeks from today, The Profession goes on sale. We were thinking about having a contest with prizes to celebrate, but we decided that was much too complicated. So instead we’re giving away stuff without a contest.
The two grand prizes—attorneys, take note: they’re not really “prizes”—are a Nook (WiFi) and a Kindle (WiFi), both to be loaded with the Random House Pressfield library: The Profession, Gates of Fire, Tides of War, Last of the Amazons, The Virtues of War, The Afghan Campaign and Killing Rommel.
Then we’ll throw in six signed first editions of The Profession to a lucky half dozen plucked from those who don’t get the Kindle or Nook. This is all as a thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered or simply stuck with the blog throughout the buildup to publication—and to every friend who has blogged or tweeted or Facebooked or just told their brother-in-law about this new book.
Enter your name and contact information before midnight this Friday, EST. We’ll keep this simple. I’ll assemble a list of the names, blindfold myself and pick eight at random, then announce the winners next Wednesday on the blog. I’ll contact the winners for their mailing addresses. The Kindle and Nook winners will get their e-readers by mail and their book downloads by e-mail (the Nook winner will get an eBook gift certificate from Barnes & Noble).
I’ll send the signed first editions myself. I’d give more but I’m the one who has to pack them and schlep them to the post office, so half a dozen will have to be enough. Any more would become Resistance.
Buy The Profession!
