We’re roughly three months out from Retribution Rails hitting shelves. I’m so excited to share this book with y’all, and I want to give a little something to everyone who pre-orders a copy. And yes, I mean EVERYONE. This is open internationally.

If you preorder Retribution Rails before November 7th, you’re eligible to receive*:

  • Kate & Jesse — an exclusive novella set after the events of Vengeance Road and only available via this preorder campaign!
  • 1 Retribution Rails bookmark
  • 1 signed Retribution Rails bookplate
  • 2 Retribution Rails stickers (selection made at random, image may vary)
  • 1 Vengeance Road laptop decal
  • 2 Vengeance Road quote cards

*PLEASE NOTE: I have a limited amount of physical swag, which will only be available while supplies last. That means the sooner you pre-order and submit your info, the better chance you have of getting all the complete swag pack! The novella, which is digital and can be emailed, will be guaranteed to everyone who submits a valid entry.

Once the campaign is over…

FIVE randomly selected runner-up winners will also receive:

  • a limited edition Vengeance Road tote bag (shown right)

and ONE randomly selected grand-prize winner will receive:



  1. Preorder Retribution Rails before November 7th, 2017
  2. Email proof-of-purchase to (use subject line: “RR preorder campaign”)

That’s it! Just make sure your email address from step 2 matches the email address you enter in step 3. (This is the same address I’ll use to send you the novella.)
