FAQ

IMPORTANT:

If you are having trouble uploading your pre-order form, please contact the folks at @getunderlined 🙂

So what do I get for pre-ordering AURORA RISING, Kristoff?
You get an exclusive printed novella, set in the ILLUMINAE universe.

HOLY SHITBA . . . Ahem. You have my attention. What’s it called?
MEMENTO.

What’s it about?
It’s set on the Alexander a few days before the Kerenza attack.

Ooooooh, a prequel! Will any of the ILLUMINAE cast be in it?
You may spot a few familiar faces. < ERROR >

OMFGGGG.
Yeah. 🙂

Will it have all the fanceh design elements of the ILLUMINAE books?
Yes. It’ll be designed just like the ILLUMINAE novels were.

So wait, this an actual physical booklet? Not a PDF? Not an e-short?
Yes, it’s a physical novella. It’ll be mailed out to the address you enter HERE, and you’ll be able to hold it in your hot little hands. And please note: there are NO plans for this story to be printed anywhere else. It will not be produced in e-format. It will not be available online.

The only way you’re guaranteed to get your hands on it is by pre-ordering AURORA RISING.

We’re fucking serious.

Is this offer open internationally?
Ok, this gets a bit confusing, so bear with us. The form here will only accept a US mailing address–

WHAT!? You motherfucker, that SUCKS I WILL EAT YOUR FUCKING HEART LIKE IT WAS A JELLY DONUT YOU–
Slow thy roll, droogie! The offer IS available to international residents! The purchase just has to be made through our buddies at Good Choice Reading. We’ll be running what’s called a virtual signing through GCR (you can read about them on their site, they’re very cool). Basically, you place your order through the good folks at GCR, and for your trouble, you’ll get a signed copy of AURORA RISING and MEMENTO mailed to you together

GCR ship internationally, so all international residents who want a copy of the novella can order through them. The novella will be included with your purchase – you will NOT need to enter your details on the GetUnderlined if you purchase through Good Choice Reading. You just place your preorder through GCR, and MEMENTO will be sent out along with your purchase. Easy.

Ordering through GCR might cost you a little more in shipping, and we understand that’s frustrating. We know it’d just be easier if you could get the novella in your own country and not have to fuck about, but these are the perils of international publishing. Australia and the UK are much smaller markets than the US, and our publishers are working with smaller budgets, so we can’t offer the novella through them direct. But we wanted to give all international residents the chance to read this thing, and GCR seemed the best solution.

GCR now has AURORA RISING listed on their site so go forth and pre-order!

Ok, for we lucky US residents, does it matter where we pre-order AURORA from?
No. Local bookstore, online store, wherever. All you need to do is click HERE, enter your proof of purchase and details, and the novella will be mailed out to you. You guys got it good.

Additionally, if you’re a foreign resident, but order the US copy (via Amazon, Book Depository, wherever) and have a US mailing address (or a friend who’s willing to loan you theirs) you can still enter your deets on the Get Underlined site and be eligible for MEMENTO.

When does the offer close?
For US residents, May 14, 2019. Yes, this means that if you purchase a copy at one of my US tour stops (deets soon), you’ll also be eligible to enter! Just upload your proof of purchase to the URL above after the tour purchase.

For international residents ordering through Good Choice Reading, you MUST PRE-ORDER BEFORE APRIL 26.

When will we receive our goodies?
4-6 weeks after AURORA RISING’s publication.

Will we receive a confirmation email to let us know our form has been lodged?
Not an email, but there will be a “Your form has been submitted” confirmation message that appears on screen after you hit submit.

I live in New Zealand. Can you help me out, bro?
If you’d like a signed copy of Aurora Rising, Booktopia will ship to you — but once they run out, they’re out, so don’t delay! Note, this is the ANZ edition, and does not qualify you for a copy of MEMENTO.

Is Puerto Rico a part of the USA for the purposes of MEMENTO?
Yes indeed.

Is Canada a part of the USA for the purposes of MEMENTO?
Sorry friend, you’re a different country! But you can use the address of a US buddy, and they can post it on to you. You trust your friends, right?

Are you going to run out of copies of MEMENTO? If I buy in first week, could I miss out?
Nope! As long as you register by the deadline, you’ll be fine.

Can two people at the same address both register to get MEMENTO? Is it one per household?
As long as you’ve both got your own receipts, you’re good to go!

Are there more US special editions that I don’t know about?
Nope, what’s announced is what there is. No need to delay your preorder!

OMGGGG more AIDAN!
Yeah. More AIDAN. 🙂

  3. Erin says:

    I live in Canada and already preordered aurora rising a few weeks ago. I’m not looking at ordering from another site. Can I still get the illuminae short somehow?

  4. Kira says:

    I went to preorder but there is nothing on the site showing anything about preordering. I definitely want to get in on this. Will they have it up soon?
    The Illuminae series is one of my ABSOLUTE FAVS so I would LOVE to get this addition!

  5. Ashley says:

    Hi! so im moving and I accidentally put the wrong address when filling out the form is there any way I could get the address changed?

  6. Vaelin says:

    I tried to know how much Good Choice Reading wants to ship a book to my country (France)… Well, 35$US, it will be without me. It’s a pity. I will still pre-order it though.

  7. Leah says:

    Hello! I’m trying to upload my receipt for the Aurora Rising preorder offer, but there is no upload button to upload a receipt on the form. Am I missing something? Help!

  8. Catherine says:

    It will not let me upload my pre order receipt. Helppppp

By the way I LOVE ALL YOUR BOOKS YOU ROOCKK♡

  10. Julia says:

    Hey, so the Illumicrate announced their super awesome alternative Cover, if i buy that, i don’t have a chance to get my hands on the Illuminae Novella?

  11. Kris Strolia says:

    Hey,

    The ONLY way to get the Novella is through GCR Website? You’ve got a link to Waterstones and Amazon UK there……..

  12. Anna says:

    I’m international and I already pre-ordered my copy from Goldsboro books. Is it still possible to get the novella somehow?

  13. Cátia says:

    Hi! Is this valid for any format of Aurora Rising? Even paperbacks? Thanks. 🖤

    • misterkristoff says:

      Needs to be a US copy of the book, and it’s only out in HB atm. you can get MEMENTO with e-book and audio purchases, too though.

  14. Camille says:

    Hi Jay (and Amy), Thanks so much for this opportunity. Just to check if I am correct: if I preorder the book from a foreign bookseller like kobo in ebook format, I can then use a friend’s address in the USA to have the novella delivered. Is that correct?
    Thanks,
    Camille

  15. Gillian says:

    I heard you will have Canada tour stops and you mentioned something about people at the tours being eligible. If I buy a book at the Canadian tour stop, can I still get the novella mailed to me?

    Also, when are the tour dates being announced?

    • misterkristoff says:

      I think you’ll need a US address to have it mailed to. but I’m gonna try to bring some with me to Canada.

      Tour details very soon.

  16. MR says:

    I’m gonna order the illumicrate box with Aurora Rising.
    Does it count as a preorder for the book?
    And if I get the box shipped to my place (I’m in Italy) can I still receive the novella shipped to a US address (even if names and addresses won’t match)?

  17. Liz Marie Gonzalez says:

    Ok, so I’m trying to get the best offer of this so, my plan is getting the illumicrate box so i have the special cover, but illumicrate is based in the uk, so I can’t upload that receipt as proof. But if i also purchase an ebook aaaand i upload that receipt, i’m spending less money than buying a physical book(I hate having 2 copy of the same book). That could work right?

  18. Georgia says:

    Hi! I want to order from Good Choice Reading, is the preorder while stocks last or until the preorder deadline?

  19. trixlyn manuel says:

    HI!!! SO I’M PLANNING TO PREORDER 4 COPIES OF AURORA RISING IN ONE TRANSACTION IN AMAZON, I THINK I WILL GET JUST 1 PREORDER RECEIPT FOR THIS AND IT WILL BE SHIP IN JUST 1 ADDRESS.. I WAS WONDERING IF I WOULD RECEIVE 4 COPIES OF MEMENTO FOR THIS? (AFTER I SUBMITTED THE FORM) OR JUST ONE ?

    • misterkristoff says:

      If you post a receipt with 4 copies of the book, you should get 4 copies of MEMENTO. If you’re really worried though, contact @getunderlined 🙂

  20. stardustandrockets says:

    I remember you posting something about this on instagram, but I forget exactly what was said. Do you know about how long it’ll be before the novellas are sent out?

  21. Mitsy says:

    are we guaranteed a copy of Memento if we enter the, “giveaway”?

  22. Nine says:

    Oh my gosh. I totally missed this one 🙁 Are there no more chances for us to order internationally? T_T. aw. I wanna cry T_T
