Deathless Giveaway and Launch Extravaganza!

Deathless by Catherynne M. ValenteDeathless by Catherynne M. Valente is finally hitting shelves today, and we thought we would reward your patience with a giveaway! (Not familiar with the title? Check out an exclusive excerpt. And don’t pass up the special Deathless comic adaptation by Amy Houser and Valente.)

That’s five copies and five chances to win. Don’t forget that the official launch party is happening tonight, hosted by Valente herself! Stop by Madame X’s in Manhattan between 6 and 10 PM to make sure you don’t miss out on the fun.

The Official Rules: To enter, post a comment in this post. Duplicate comments won’t be counted. Five winners will be randomly selected by noon EST on Friday, April 1st. Please check your email in the 24 hours after the giveaway has concluded; if we don’t hear back from a winner within 24 hours of being contacted, another winner will be chosen.

P.S. - Really like the cover? Check out the making-of process post (with lots of alternate ideas).

Wow. If the exerpt is anything like the rest of the book, Deathless should be an intriguing read. Valente's visualization is as pointed as it is absorbing.
