CONTAGION Preorder Campaign

I had every intention of posting this on the 24th—exactly three months before Contagion hits shelves. But then my baby arrived ten days before his due date and all my plans went out the window. But hey, we’re still roughly three months from launch, so it’s time to kick off the preorder campaign! I’m so excited to share this part thriller, part sci-fi horror with you that I want to give a little something to everyone who pre-orders a copy via a bookstore or online retailer. And yes, I mean EVERYONE.

If you preorder Contagion before July 24th, you’re eligible to receive*:

  • 1 Contagion bookmark
  • 1 signed bookplate
  • 2 Contagion stickers
  • 1 Contagion art print
  • the Kate & Jesse e-novella (If you missed this during my Retribution Rails preorder campaign, you can snag it again now. Simply request it when you submit your proof-of-purchase and I’ll send it along!)

*PLEASE NOTE: I have a limited amount of physical swag, which will only be available while supplies last. (For example: I’m drowning in bookmarks and quote cards, but I only have a few hundred stickers.) This means that the sooner you pre-order and submit your info, the better chance you have of getting the complete swag pack.


Once the campaign is over…

ONE grand prize winner will also receive:

  • an annotated ARC of Contagion
  • DVDs of Moon and Alien (two of my favorite sci-fi flicks!)
  • paperback copies of Illuminae by Amie Kaufman (and Jay Kristoff), Star Wars Rebel Rising by Beth Revis, and Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi (These three women blurbed Contagion and I happen to think their books are pretty awesome, too)
  • a $25 gift card to Amazon or B&N (winner’s choice!)




  1. Preorder Contagion before July 24th, 2018
  2. Email proof-of-purchase to (use subject line: “Contagion Preorder Campaign”) and include your preferred mailing address. If you’re requesting the Kate & Jesse novella because you missed it last time, be sure to mention that, too.


That’s it! Proof-of-purchase can be a photo/scan/screenshot of your receipt, and you can purchase the book from any book retailer—Amazon, B&N, Book Depository, your local indie, whatever is easiest for you. Please note that orders via subscription boxes do NOT count toward the campaign (for several reasons, but mainly that these are bulk orders placed by the subscription service, not a retailer, meaning my publisher considers them “special sales” not “regular sales.”) Similarly, I can not accept entries for audiobooks. Text copies only, please.

I will accept entries until 11:59pm EDT on 7/23/18. This is open internationally.
