LAIR OF DREAMS Pre-Order Campaign


Well, hello there.

Greetings from the LAIR OF DREAMS compound where Charley the Wonder Llama and I are hard at work, readying a pre-order campaign for DIVINERS 2: LAIR OF DREAMS. Or, as we call it: DIVINERS #2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO.

LAIR OF DREAMS drops on Tuesday, August 25th, 2015, a day that, I believe, has now been declared a national holiday. (Pretty sure they’re handing out free creepy that day.) You can certainly buy the book on 8/25. Or anytime after that. All good. Don’t let The Man tell you how to enjoy your book purchases. You be you.

BUUUUT…if you pre-order LAIR OF DREAMS in the next few weeks, YOU WILL LIVE AS GODS LIVE! 

To be clear, in this instance, “You will live as gods live” = special swag.

“What kind of swag, Libba? Tell us! Tell us before we click the links! We have enough to worry about without pre-order uncertainty added in, dammit!”

Of course. Of course I will tell you. Not a problem–I’m a classic oversharer. I promise it will not be a Ziploc baggie filled with my discarded dental floss and affirmations scribbled on gum wrappers–“Dance as if no one’s watching. Except for Clyde and Bonnie from the NSA.” No. There will be buttons. And temporary tattoos. And signed bookplates. Special things! And each pre-order will be personally cuddled and told that it is the most special pre-order of all…except for all of the other pre-orders. For your pre-orders, I will whisper things that only the doves know.

Some truly wonderful independent bookstores have all agreed to make this happen. They are amazing temples of awesome run by lovely, lovely people. Please show them the love:

So there you have it. These store links are live and waiting for YOU! I have to return to Charley now or else he’ll leave something in the swag bag that no one wants. (He’s a bitter, bitter llama. An unfortunate alpaca incident. We don’t discuss it.)

Please visit the Events & Appearances page on my website,, to see if I’m coming to a bookstore/library/school/festival near you.

Thanks for playing.
