The Big Riot Boy Release Party Giveaway

Barring disaster, Riot Boy should be seeing virtual shelves next week. (Please don't hate me if a disaster happens, though.) Freakoutgowildscreamingyay! To celebrate, I'm giving away loads of cool stuff. Want some? Awesome.

ETA: 10/11, 11.59 PM
This contest is closed. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to enter! Announcements coming up soon <3 

Here's how it works:
-Choose a prize pack -- you can only enter for one, and each has its own page.
-Comment on your chosen pack page (not on this post) with some contact information to let me know that's the one you want. Please be willing to email me your mailing address, if you win. I'll write you a very sweet letter on pretty paper, if you do. [ETA: This giveaway is international -- anyone, any continent is welcome to enter!]
-I'll number the comments and let random.org choose the winners at 11.59 p.m. EST, November 10, at the end of The Romance Studio's release party. Where I will be hanging out all day, drinking absinthe cocktails and posting excerpts and generally making a nuisance of myself. And Brady. But more on that later.
-Profit.

Some notes on the booty:
-I'm very sorry if you already have the album on the pack you like, but at least you have something worth regifting when the holidays roll around, right?
-Brady says that if you think you don't like the album offered with the pack you want, you haven't listened properly. Try again. (I say, hell, it's free, why not?)
-I would actually love to send you absinthe with the spoons. Alas, I could get into trouble for that, and I can't really check your IDs from here, anyhow.
-This edition of "Une Saison en Enfer" is not the same one Etienne owns, but I have it on good authority that it's a nice translation, all the same.
-Voltaire is hilarious.
-No, you absolutely do not need to read Equilibrium to get Riot Boy, or vice versa. They're wholly unconnected, apart from happening in the same world.
-Riot Boy will be released a few days before the end of this contest. If you can't wait, go for pack B!

Questions? Concerns? That's what this post is for! <3
