Why library preorders matter

One of my favorite books of all time, Lirael by Garth Nix, features the most incredible library in any universe, complete with books, magic, and monsters. I loved that library, in part because it represented all of the libraries that I adored. From my cozy middle-school library to the sprawling quiet of my university library, a great deal of my life has been spent among the shelves of books.

If it wasn’t for libraries, I certainly wouldn’t have been able to enjoy nearly as many stories as I have over the years. Libraries provide books, education, and so much more to everyone.

Everyone deserves access to wonderful books.

That’s why my preorder prizes are available to you if you request your book from a library, just like if you order it!

Additionally, you’ll be eligible for a very special library-preorder prize only! (pictures to come)

How to request:

Most libraries have a request form. 

  • You can also request the ebook via the Overdrive App (which is a super cool tool, even if you don’t use it to request my book! FREE E-Books and audiobooks!)

Please include the below

  • Title: Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me
  • Author: Carrie DiRisio
  • Publisher: Sky Pony Press (October 3, 2017)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1510726667
  • ISBN-13: 978-1510726666
  • Trade Reviews:
  • “VERDICT A clever, tongue-in-cheek novel that will appeal to teens with a disdain for the formulaic. A good choice for YA shelves or where satire is popular.- School Library Journal”
    “A satirical look at the world of the male hero in young-adult literature . . . In short, subheaded chapters that address the audience directly, he does so, hitting on some funny moments that are also critically insightful. ―Kirkus Reviews

Once you’ve requested, just fill out this form AND email Broodybook@gmail.com with the proof (a screenshot/photo/scan of the request form works!)

    Lirael is one of my favorite books of all time too. I love the library so much. Anyways, I just wanted to reiterate just how much it means to me that you made the preorder prizes available for people who request it from the library as well. I just received my preorder goodies, and they are some of my absolute favorites. Everything about them makes me so happy, so thank you again for this.
