To gear up for the release of Rise the Dark, we are doing a special pre-order promotion! Between now and August 16, if you send a receipt or photo of a receipt for a pre-order of Rise the Dark to korytabooks@gmail.com, and share the contest post on Facebook, you’ll be entered to win signed copies from some of Michael’s favorite authors. We will have three winners:

Third place: a signed hardcover copy of Michael Connelly’s novel The Crossing, one of Michael’s all-time favorite writers.
