4. COVER KICKS ASS - Look at that badass cover! With that girl in a cape! Think how cool it will look on a TBR pile.
3. SWEET READ - C.E. Murphy says: "Jackie Kessler and Caitlin Kittredge have hit it out of the ballpark with SHADES OF GRAY." And Publisher's Weekly calls Jet and Iridium, the two main characters, "intriguingly flawed," and goes on to say, "Jet and Iridium's multifaceted relationship will appeal to all who have come to want more from their superheroes than good vs. evil and mindless battles." Also, BLACK AND WHITE, book #1, was hugely beloved, this one has gotten great advance reviews, so you can get them both and settle in for a good long reading fiesta.
2. POTENTIAL SCARCITY - From Jackie's blog: "You know how frustrating it is to go into your local bookstore and not see the book you desperately want to read RIGHT NOW? Yeah, we do too. That’s why Caitlin and Jackie are encouraging readers to preorder SHADES OF GRAY."
1. PURE GREED - You can never get enough books. And with this book, when you preorder it and tell Jackie, you're entered in a drawing for three separate prize packs full of other books. It's an avalanche of books. And only 11 people have entered so far. What is that? Like a 30% chance of winning?
1A. WAIT! THERE'S MORE! I just checked Jackie's blog, and I see that you now don't even have to preorder Shades of Gray to be in the contest! It's probably the first pre-order contest where pre-ordering is optional! It's superhero Madness. Check out the big contest here.
