bloodleaf post-order campaign

Every new book these days seems to come with a pre-order campaign designed to increase excitement for the book's launch while sweetening the incentive to buy the book pre-release with fun goodies and swag.  (We did one for BLOODLEAF and it was awesome) But...what about after the release? 


For the last few months, I've been thinking about how to say thank you to all of my awesome readers, including those who discovered BLOODLEAF long after the pre-order campaign was over, or those who read it without being able to purchase it outright. (Libraries are wonderful and important, too!)



September 12th marks BLOODLEAF's sixmonthiversary, and to celebrate I've made up some special LIMITED EDITION image-shifting postcards I will personalize and send out to every single person who has read Bloodleaf--regardless if they bought it, borrowed it, or found it left under their pillow by the tooth fairy. (the only exception being if you illegally downloaded it or made off with it in an elaborate midnight library heist. Not cool, bro.) 

All you gotta do is fill out this form here:  and tell me where to send it and who to send it to, along with something about Bloodleaf that you enjoyed, mostly to give me something I can use to personalize your postcard. (But also because I LOVE THIS BOOK and hearing what you loved about it, too, will make my year. And possibly life.)

BONUS: this art is of Aurelia in GREYTHORNE, and features fun little elements you'll see in book 2! 


One per person/email/mailing address, please! International is okay (as long as I can get a stamp that will get it there!) This will go through the end of September, or however long supplies last.  Quantity is limited, so first come first serve!

The fine print:  

Be among the first 500 people to fill out the BLOODLEAF post-order postcard campaign form and Crystal Smith will send you a personalized lenticular postcard while supplies last.

There is a limit of one (1) entry per person.  We reserve the right in our sole discretion to disqualify any entry or entries we receive for any reason or no reason.

If you are under 13 years old, please have your parent complete the form of your behalf and email it to us.
